Wow, where to start. This one of a kind is a work of art in and of itself. Every detail and material used in the build and design was very thoughtfully chosen and placed. High design using a mixture of new, vintage and repurposed material make this one of the most unique homes you will ever come across. Renovation and expansion of the original 1939 house was overseen by a worldly master builder and materials were selected with quality and endurance in mind. Every detail has a story, down to the porcelain house numbers from Paris France. The property includes two full living spaces. Upstairs living room has 15'7" high ceiling with exposed parallam beams as a structural design feature, oil and wax finished hardwood floors, a venetian plaster accent wall and a loft/light-shelf with built in workspace. From the loft you have an almost 360 view out the clerestory glass with some views to the downtown skyline. The loft features metal railings salvaged in the 1950s from a pharmacy on former East Ave which is now IH-35 through downtown. Upstairs Kitchen has soapstone counters and rattlesnake limestone, indigenous to central Texas. This home is perfect for those looking for something that no one else has. This Bouldin neighborhood location is 1 block away from the most happening part of S. 1st and a few blocks from S. Congress. It can't be beat for lovers of the city-life who want to be in the action. Walk or bike to most anything you could want. Eat drink, shop, daylife, nightlife,...on South 1ST or South Congress. Close to the new multi level HEB grocery, downtown, Zilker and Barton Springs. Can be used as a single household, live-in + rental income, home needing in-law arrangement, home w/ guest quarters or prime for someone wanting to separate home from studio or office. If most houses bore you, you may just have found the perfect fit in this incredible property. Check out the virtual skytour that shows just how close this property is to everything inner city.
