It may be the perfect hill country home (sold)
Along a road often written up as one of most scenic west of Austin
This may just be the most alluring hill country property you will ever find at this price. It is modern. It was architect designed and includes all kinds of outbuildings--art studio, workshop/barn and a cute chicken coop. There's more--two master bedrooms, casita for guests, and the most FUN feature of all--a bonafide English-style pub in the entry. The location is in the epicenter of a stretch of hill country that always makes the short list when articles are written about "most scenic drives".

Venerable old Austin on oversized lot (sold)
Has a family of deer that live in the back yard.
Here is a tempting price if you will do the updating. On a quiet, picturesque little street, this four bedroom home has about 2,790 sq. ft. This is an ideal residence for a number of reasons. The floorplan has a good "flow" of rooms, and it is sitting on an unusually large piece of land--both wide and deep. The back yard goes back just over 60 feet--plenty of space for a garden, pool or playground. Most importantly, the large lot creates enough impervious cover to allow for substantial size to be added to the existing residence (per the City's permitting codes). You could end up with a house just over 5,000 sq. ft. If not important to you, it could add a large bump in value in any future resale. Click the link above to read all about it.

Small, Mid-Century modern (sold).

This may just be the most original Mid-Century modern left in Austin as it appears to be in near original condition!
