Downtown views! Lovely stucco home tucked into a quiet corner of coveted Travis Heights. This home is made for both entertaining and everyday living, with plenty of space for spreading out. This 1930's house was thoughtfully remodeled in 2003 to make the addition stay true to the home's original charm. The owners found a mill to produce matching wood frames, repurposed solid wood doors, and commissioned stucco to closely match the original exterior. Beautiful hardwood floors throughout the living rooms and guest bedroom are original, as is the tile in the guest bathroom.One striking feature of the home is the arched window in front that captures the glow of the afternoon sun through yellow glass panes. The heart of this home is the kitchen (complete with a vintage Chambers stove and pull-down ironing board) which sits next to the dining and family room, making it ideal for gatherings. The primary bedroom in the back of the house has a private door and bathroom with a custom-made cabinet built by a local carpenter. A second bedroom and bathroom downstairs can be closed off for guests and privacy, while upstairs two more bedrooms (with cathedral ceilings) share a third bathroom. The backyard deck offers fabulous downtown views, shaded by wisteria. The yard has a sweet playhouse with sleeping loft, and a ramp leads down to the rear single-car garage built into limestone. The location is just blocks from South Congress shopping and restaurants and minutes to the neighborhood parks and hike and bike trails. This property is immaculate, well-cared for, and ready for a new owner. FYI - the City just laid new water, wastewater, and gas lines so the street will soon be repaved.
