This remodeled 2-story bungalow in historic Hyde Park has fabulous modern kitchen, master bedroom aerie, Mediterranean-style native plant garden, and screened porch with green touches throughout. Hip dining and buses to downtown are moments away.
Renovation of this 1920s bungalow in historic Hyde Park preserved its soul while adding a see-to-believe upstairs master bathroom and bedroom and modernizing the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. The owners have made this residence as eco-friendly as possible inside and out, using reclaimed or recycled materials and installing energy- and water-saving updates. The home was featured in the 2014 Hyde Park Homes tour.
The upstairs master bedroom is a haven of calm. Balcony, views to the treetops, queen-size bed, window seat. A cupboard just for your things and space for hanging items. Bathroom features walk-in shower, glass block, and Mexican tile. The upstairs has its own whisper-quiet mini-split AC.
Downstairs bedroom and bedroom/office share a renovated bathroom with shower and clawfoot tub. The downstairs bedroom has a queen-size bed, space in the antique armoire for unpacking and space in the closet for hanging items. Bedroom/study has a “click clack” couch that folds out and can sleep an additional 2 people (for a total of 6). Living room, dining room, kitchen, and sunroom with coffee bar are furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage, and artwork. Like to cook? The kitchen is newly remodeled, with all new appliances including a 5-burner restaurant-style gas stove. Wifi available, but the flat screen “tv” is set up for DVDs only (no cable connection – you didn't come to Austin to watch TV, did you?).
Enter through a Mediterranean-style garden with native plants, stonework and ironwork, and courtyard surrounded by trees and vines. Enjoy the outdoor fireplace on a chilly evening. In the back, a woodland garden with patio is shaded by 100-year-old post oaks. The backyard also has a spacious detached screened porch with ceiling fans, sitting area, large dining table, and rustic kitchen. A great place to unwind with a beer, have a group dinner, and escape from the mosquitos! Where will you sit to enjoy your espresso, glass of wine, or bottle of craft beer? At the café table in the courtyard? On the front porch? In the screened porch out back? Or up on the balcony?
There are two bicycles available for your use, also light barbells, yoga mats, a foam roller, tennis rackets and – for those who really want a workout – a Concept 2 dynamic ergometer. Tennis courts and basketball court are directly across the street at Shipe Park. Austin is a mecca for runners, climbers, cyclists, swimmers, and rowers ...
