When writers of national publications note that Austin is one of the most desirable cities in which to live, they refer to the beauty of the urban district, the restaurants of South Congress and South Lamar, Barton Springs pool, Town Lake hike and bike trails and our city’s central gathering place for nature and entertainment, Zilker Park.
Finding a home within reach of each of these attractions means experiencing our city close up and diving head first into the bohemian pleasures of Austin living. For all these reasons, Barton Hills is in high demand, with its mid-century architecture and rolling terrain so near the City’s pleasures and treasures.
The wide overhangs and clean horizontal lines of this brick, single story, 1880 square foot home evoke the sought-after style and the view over Zilker Park marks this opportunity as the perfect intersection of design and primo location so desired in Austin… in the middle of everything but with an organic feeling of privacy.
Fresh, modern landscaping and new wood garage doors enhance the exterior, and inside, rich mesquite hardwood floors throughout the entire 3 bedroom, 2 bath floorplan anchor the brick walls in the living and white paneled walls of the dining room. In the family room, a wide fireplace of narrow, horizontal stone to the ceiling is flanked by painted bookcases. A sliding barn door separates the Living from the Kitchen making quite a statement even when not in use. All of these rooms look out through huge windows to the wood deck and treetops.
The kitchen features rich, Alder cabinetry, a stainless farmhouse apron sink and an incredible backsplash grid of randomly patterned metallic and matte tiles in silver and gray tones.
There is no better chance to immerse yourself into what is special, hip and glorious about living in Austin. Sure, the location is convenient, the property is gorgeous and the finishes are wonderful…but mostly, this is a very, very cool place.
