Built 1935
UPDATE: scooter, washer, dryer, and refrigerator convey! Located in the hip Ridgetop neighborhood with close proximity to many retail, entertainment, and restaurant amenities, this 1935 single story home exemplifies pride of ownership. Since 1955, this home has been lovingly cared for and thoughtfully maintained by an established Austinite family. A white picket fence sits at the 55th 1/2 curb and the covered front porch overlooks the front yard. There is a prodigious magnolia tree to the west that provides significant afternoon shade. The steps to the front porch lead to an original transom window atop an attractive entry door. Once inside, the original, refinished hardwood floors of the reception room gleam with the abundant natural light from oversized windows. The owner's suite is immediately to the right through a handsome barn door. An added full bathroom inside the primary room was part of a major renovation within the last 20 years. Beyond the reception room is a bright formal dining space. Original, salvaged windows adorn the walls and there is enough space for a long rectangular table with chairs. Pass through to the reconfigured kitchen space, complete with updated cabinetry, countertops, and fixtures. Just off the kitchen are two more bedrooms plus a tastefully renovated full bathroom, achieved with a clawfoot tub and stylish tile! The 10' ceilings throughout create an illusion of additional dimensions within the home. Immaculate walls and floors express the intense care the owners have provided over the last several decades. The professionally landscaped backyard improvements are also important to note - large, covered deck, 8' privacy fence on western side, entertainer's bar, and existing wiring for potential hot tub. The best thing to do is to experience this historical gem in person, so please make an appointment to view it or head to the Open House on July 4th!!!
