This idyllic jewel box is the one you’ve been waiting for in the walkable Central Austin neighborhood of Deep Eddy. This 5 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home is the perfect mix of classic architecture and modern design. Thoughtful architectural details include crown molding, a plaster fireplace, and Moroccan arches, that lead you through the cozy living room to the recently renovated kitchen with custom Elmwood cabinetry, Cle tile backsplash, and a high end appliance package including a Wolf 36″ range, two dishwashers and an ice maker. A separate dining room, secondary living and office with lots of natural light completes the downstairs floorplan. No expense was spared in the renovation complete with Rejuvenation brass hardware, Visual Comfort and Circa Lighting fixtures, solid white oak floors with a Herringbone entry and smooth Level 5 walls. Upstairs the floorplan is intimate and inviting. Two bedrooms share a thoughtfully updated bathroom and the large primary suite sits quietly in the back. The owners added a stunning architectural skybridge perched over a landscaped terrace to create a single 5 bedroom layout upstairs. The expansive deck features cedar slat modern fencing, landscape lighting, hanging custom driftwood orb chandeliers, and a powered outdoor misting fan system from MCS for year-round comfort. The front porch is a wonderful spot for coffee to wave hello to many neighbors walking in this active, youthful neighborhood. The location cannot be beat: a 5 minute drive to downtown, a short jog to the Lady Bird Lake Trail and Zilker Park, Maudie’s Mexican restaurant and a few others nearby, a short walk to Lions Municipal Golf Course and close enough to the new HEB flagship grocery store with rooftop coffee shop and award winning BBQ restaurant. This central Austin lifestyle can’t be beat, and with high end luxury and warm design, it’s nearly impossible to find a 5 bedroom home this close to all of the action.
