1217 Fairground Street

Taylor, TX 76574
2076 sqft | 4 beds | 3 baths | #4937464


Artful remake of spacious 1935 Craftsman-style cottage. Bright colors, along with cedar, metal, vintage elements, and rustic materials were all woven together to create a wonderfully refreshing escape from “normal". Unlike anything else in Taylor, Texas, 1217 Fairground is a modern, uniquely charming home on a verdant tree-shaded corner just two blocks off Lake Drive. Outside, this "doers" theme park includes a red storage barn, small greenhouse, maker's workshop, air-conditioned she-shed, and above-ground gardens. Entertainment options include a redneck-decorated party barn fully equipped with built-in tables, bar area, antique wood-burning stove, a banquet-sized BBQ smoker (stocked with pecan wood!), plus a rocked fire pit area perfect for guitar playing and story-telling. Watch small town life go by on the covered front deck, or enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee and the sound of a gurgling garden pond on the multi-level back patio. This remodeled beauty pays special attention to honoring its historic roots, from the antique phone nook (with USB charging plugs), refinished original wood cabinets, to original solid wood doors and antique doorknobs. Reflecting Craftsman workmanship, it features brand new SOLID red oak flooring throughout, beautiful ebony-stained butcher block counter tops in an expanded kitchen, and all new stainless appliances (including fridge). The house boasts 4 bedrooms, (or 3 plus an office/bedroom with outdoor deck access), 3 fully updated baths, an exquisitely re-imagined private owner’s retreat, and a huge utility/sewing room/art studio. Structurally solid, the permitted renovation includes new warrantied foundation piers, metal skirting, updated plumbing, electrical and lighting, HVAC, and an architectural shingle roof. Far enough from the world to experience the peace and serenity of small town life, but close enough to the business and bustle of Austin, this Taylor jewel is the perfect place to live well, play well, and rest easy.
