EXTENSIVE HISTORIC RENOVATION
A rare opportunity awaits with this early Spanish Hacienda-style home, nestled in the heart of Austin's coveted Pemberton Heights neighborhood. Situated on just under an 0.80-acre double lot, this property boasts a picturesque setting with numerous majestic heritage oak trees, overlooking the serene Shoal Creek and the prestigious University of Texas campus. Purchased by the current owners in 2014, this 1930s home underwent an extensive three-year renovation. The owners' vision was to honor the original design while elevating it to meet contemporary standards. From meticulous attention to detail to replacing the stucco and restoring the tile roof, no expense was spared to restore this historic gem.
PERFECT ONE STORY LIVING
This remarkable home presents a seamless blend of timeless charm and modern amenities, making it ideal for comfortable one-story living with five bedroom all with ensuite baths. The renovation involved stripping the house down to the studs, resulting in the addition of over 1400 square feet of living space. Among the additions is a new primary suite featuring a spacious and luxurious bath retreat. A cozy keeping room adjacent to the kitchen enhances the home's functionality and livability. Original elements, such as the arched front door and stain glass windows, were thoughtfully preserved, while new windows, doors, and custom ironwork were introduced to enhance the overall appeal. The vaulted living room with original stain glass windows was rebuilt with its original plaster and the surprise find of temperance cabinets were fully restored to appreciate the home’s original design. The classic eat-in kitchen showcases high-end appliances, custom stone surrounds, and Wood-Mode cabinetry, creating an inviting space for culinary enthusiasts. A fabulous mud room/laundry/pantry area adds convenience, while Flambeau gas lighting and Cantera doors further enhance the exterior and provide access to the original patio overlooking the sprawling estate.
EXPANSIVE OWNER'S SUITE
The renovation not only added significant living space but also created an expansive owner's suite designed for ultimate comfort. The new suite features a spacious bedroom with ample natural light and a serene atmosphere. The adjacent primary bath exudes luxury, with custom tile work throughout, antique stain glass for added elegance, and abundant storage space. The current owners have repurposed the storage area beneath the primary addition into a gym, offering a convenient space for exercise and wellness. The attention to detail in the renovation ensures that every corner of this home exudes sophistication and timeless appeal. In addition to its outstanding features, this magnificent property enjoys a prime location just a short walk away from Pease Park, offering a tranquil retreat within the vibrant city of Austin, Texas. This home offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of Austin's rich architectural heritage while enjoying luxurious modern living.
