2705 West 35th Avenue, Austin, TX
A classic stone exterior with an earthy, clay-tiled roof combines the authenticity of Mediterranean architecture with Central Austin living. The grounds feature exquisitely manicured landscaping with delightful doors and nooks in the front and exterior yard, a gorgeous fountain/seating area, and a gated, brick entrance design that comes full circle in front of a three-car garage that includes two stand-up wine refrigerators and plentiful built-ins for extra storage. A screened-in porch provides year-round, outdoor living, and a covered deck offers additional space for al fresco dining and socializing. Inside, the foyer is a hint of what is to come with its graceful staircase and large window reflecting light onto gleaming wood floors. The traditionally styled, well-equipped kitchen is the best of both worlds with space for gathering, but also a bit of separation from the more formal living and dining spaces that feature beautiful French doors to the outdoors. A sparkling chandelier is the star of a high-ceilinged, paneled living room that evokes the club-like, sophisticated feel of a Jay Gatsby-hosted cocktail hour. Its nearby counterpart is a cozy, casual media room for television, movies, and games. Completing the main floor layout is a stunning owner’s en-suite, with built-ins, garden views, and hallway leading to the massive bathroom with two vanities plus separate tub and shower. The curvaceous iron railing along the staircase guides you to a versatile landing area, currently used as a music room and library. Two additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms upstairs provide perfect privacy. This ideal location is near Central Market, Seton Ascension Healthcare, Covert Park at Mt. Bonnell, and award-winning Casis Elementary.
