A rare find in the heart of the 04 Zilker neighborhood. This meticulously updated home checks so many boxes for the discerning buyer – including many walkable destinations and a back-yard cottage. It offers traditional Austin character balanced with modern style and conveniences, extensive updates, and appealing outdoor living. The home flows with an open layout in the main living areas and eat-in kitchen. Ample windows provide natural light and expansive views to the large back patio and freshly re-landscaped yard. The house “lives large” thanks to the layout and two flexible “bonus” rooms – the den and the detached cottage in the back yard – that can be used as home offices, family rooms, or whatever you may need. Ample storage is provided by two huge walk-in storage closets in the den. This property is ideal for Austin indoor-outdoor living. It features mature native shade trees, a front porch, a generous back patio for outdoor gatherings, a newly installed back lawn, a drip irrigation system for the drought-tolerant and native landscaping, and a fire pit area. The home is within walking-biking distance to Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, the hike-and-bike trail along the river. Within a 2-5 minute walk are a great variety of restaurants and entertainment venues, including Lamar Union, with Caffe Medici coffee house, Lick ice cream, sushi, Thai food, and the original Alamo Drafthouse. Live music is around the corner at the Saxon Pub and Gibson’s. Within the past few years, it’s been upgraded with fresh exterior and interior paint, new flooring, fresh Berber carpet, new kitchen appliances and countertops, energy-efficient HVAC, and more. The den features bamboo hardwood flooring and a long custom desk with two work stations. The detached backyard cottage has been used a guesthouse, profitable Airbnb rental, and home office; it includes a large toolshed and screened-in porch. Both bathrooms were updated last year as well. This is a house to relax in and enjoy.
