This spacious three-bedroom single-family home in the Holly neighborhood of East Austin known for being convenient to downtown and popular for its close and easy access to Town Lake, Festival Beach, Fiesta Gardens, hiking and biking trails and the legendary Don Juan taco at Juan In A Million on Cesar Chavez.
The lot for this home is 3,350 square feet; the square footage of the first floor is 1,377 square feet allowing for a perfect-sized yard. The upstairs measures 740 square feet plus a rooftop deck and space for an office or extra storage. Altogether, with 2,068 sq ft for living, there is plenty of room for versatility in your lifestyle.
The drive-in single-car garage, located in the front left corner of the home, assures your car is protected from the elements.
Upon entering the home from the front door, you are greeted by an open-air floor plan that feels expansive. Immediately to your left is the coat closet (which is on the common wall for the garage). Immediately to your right, you see the large living room, surrounded by large windows which explain the natural light illuminating the interior. The clean, modern lines of the home’s architecture and stained, sealed, waxed concrete floors create a sense of visual balance.
Looking straight ahead to the opposite wall of the home is a slider door to the backyard. Looking just right of the slider doors, you see the dining room is a central focal point, naturally leading your eye to the large kitchen in the far right corner. The kitchen is equipped with a 36” gas cooktop, centered on an island bar that is perfect for entertaining while preparing culinary delights. There is also electric oven/microwave combo, 24” built-in dishwasher and refrigerator with icemaker. The pantry takes up the back corner of the kitchen.
Turning back to your left, you see the stairs going up are located along the wall (behind the coat closet). You also notice the guest bathroom unobtrusively tucked in the corner; you would pass by it on your way to the garage. Instead, you take the stairs up to the second floor.
When you get to the top of the stairs, you could enter one of the secondary bedrooms immediately to your right. When you do, you see that it has windows on two adjacent walls as well as a double closet on the third wall. Going back to the top of the stairs, you see the hall moves toward the back of the house; on the left side is the other secondary bedroom, again with two windows and a double closet. On the right side of the hallway (across from that bedroom) is the bathroom complete with a cast iron tub.
Standing in the center of the hallway, looking to your right, you see a smaller hallway. On the left side is the laundry, with a full-sized front load washer and dryer set. Moving past them, you enter the generous master suite with high-set privacy windows and its own private deck that faces the back side of the property. Perfect for greeting the day with yoga and a cup of coffee or ending it with a relaxing glass of wine, the wooden deck is an intimate sanctuary for personal restoration. Within the master suite, there are two walk-in closets running along the right side of the room. Near the closets is the master bath with a double-sink and tempered glass shower door. All the bathrooms and laundry have porcelain tile floors.
Returning to the stairs, you see one more level going up that leads to the roof deck and office or extra storage space. The office is has plenty of light from the numerous windows while the deck is perfect for grilling, having a soiree, storing your bike or even exercise equipment for your work-outs at home.
