Here is a rare opportunity to own a sizable .649-acre property on Shoal Creek Boulevard, backing up to the creek and with no neighbors behind it. Remodel and expand the existing home or build your new dream home. The large, level building envelope allows for many possibilities.

The home has been in the family for two generations and was designed and occupied by Evelyn and Charles Coatsworth Pinkney, a renowned landscape architect whose work can be seen throughout the City of Austin. Mr. Pinkney's design brings nature "into the home" by incorporating large picture-windows in the living spaces and master suite.

The ranch-style home features a large covered front flagstone porch and two large living spaces, each with a fireplace and a picture window. Additionally, the design incorporates significant storage cabinets and built-in shelving. One of the two living rooms has a half bath. The kitchen and breakfast area were designed as a gathering space for friends and family, with a wonderful view of the landscaped yard and large heritage oak trees at the rear of the property.

The master suite is of respectful size and accentuated by another sizable picture window. Two additional bedrooms are at the front of the house, one that has been used as an office, has hardwood flooring, and is of substantial size. The two bathrooms are a walk back in time, appointed with finishes common to the era. Of note throughout the house is the intelligent utilization of space dedicated to storage.

Significant features of this property are the backyard and pool. The pool was designed as a "swimming hole" to naturally fit into the landscaping. Given Mr. Pinkney's profession, you can see the detail to selection of plants and design. At the rear of the property, you will find a large, shaded patio under massive live oaks, pathways to irrigated planting beds, a BBQ grill, and an old path to the creek twenty feet below.
