This traditional-yet-modern new home is in the MLK 183 Neighborhood, considered an east-side Austin gem where the city rhythms begin the transformation into a more relaxed pace of life. Just twenty years ago, the roads in this neighborhood were not paved. It’s a community that supports good neighbors and good living.
The home’s exterior is siding with a shingle roof and has many windows for the natural light to shine through the space. There is a double carport to the right of the 1,912 sq foot home, which includes the 223 sq feet of covered front patio leading to the front door.
When you enter the home, there is an entry vestibule, front closet and hallway going forward. It’s clear that this is a central traffic hub, with two bedrooms and a guest bath to the left side, the hall to the master suite ahead and an entry to the generous living area to the right.
Turning right, you enter the Great Room, emphasized by the vaulted ceilings and warm wood floors, inviting you to feel spacious and welcome. At the far end of the Great Room, you see the dining area first, then the stand-alone island for the kitchen sink and then the kitchen against the far wall. As you look toward the kitchen, you see all the windows along your right side –the front of the house – bathing the house in natural light. The far left corner of the kitchen as you see it has a back door, leading to the outside carport and backyard.
Turning your attention back to the bedrooms to the left of the front door, you see that they each have a window, walk-in closets, ceiling fans and shared bathroom facilities. There is a separate W/C and tub separate from the dual sinks for maximum functionality. Both of the bathrooms (guest and master suite) as well as the laundry room (near the second bedroom) have tiled floors.
