South Austin Modern Home

Posted by Dave Cothran Realtor

 

Hello all,

I just previewed an incredible South Austin modern home last weekend, offered for sale by Don Sembra of Moreland Properties, listed at $771,000.  Tucked away on a cozy street in the Zilker/Barton Heights neighborhood, it is just steps away form Zilker Park/Barton Springs and all of the shops, restaurants, and entertainment this area has to offer!  Designed by Christy Seal and built in 2008 by Craig Parker, this modern home offers clean horizontal lines and a warm contemporary feel.  With polished concrete and quarter-swan oak floors the rooms are light, open, and airy.  The high end fixtures and appliances, along with the incredible landscaping, give this house the finishing touches that would make it a great place for you to call home!  Please contact me if you would like to arrange a viewing of this awesome, 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom, South Austin Modern Home.

Zilker Neighborhood History Lesson

Posted by Dave Cothran Realtor

 

Greetings all,

I have been living in the Zilker neighborhood for the last five years and have come to love this area!  I recently had a chance to talk with Riley Triggs, a neighbor, architect, neighborhood and AD Stenger historian.  A.D. Stenger was an architect/developer/builder whose stamp has been left all through the Zilker and Barton Hills neighborhoods as well as a few other areas around Austin.  Riley had the opportunity to save his childhood home from sliding of the hillside by reenforcing and adding his own architectural touches too it.  His father, a graphic designer, worked with Stenger to design their home in the mid 50’s.  Riley has an incredible wealth of knowledge on the history of this great South Austin neighborhood and I look forward to many future conversations with him on the subject.  One thing I took from this meeting was an understanding of why my soil is so fertile and my vegetable garden does so well when I tend it properly.  Before the neighborhoods were developed up here on top of the hill, this was all farmland, the old Kinney Farmhouse still sits near the corner of Kerr and Barton Blvd.

There is, in my opinion, a great diverse mix in our area of the old and the new.  I have an affinity for the nostalgia and appreciate efforts to preserve the antiquities that are worth saving, I also have an appreciation for the clean lines and minimalist feel of modern architecture.  There are some great rehabs, remodels, tear-downs, modulars, and new construction on empty lots here all happening within a one and a half mile radius.  If you are in the market for a new home, old home, modern home, modular home, and have always wanted to live in this great area of town, I would be more than happy to help make those dreams come true.   Contact me for more information on the history of the hood and to find that perfect piece of property for you!

More to come!……..

South Austin Home/ Recording Studio $349,900

Posted by Dave Cothran Realtor

 

I visited an open house yesterday at 2104 Peach Tree St. in the heart of the Zilker Neighborhood.  Here you will be within minutes of the Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, and many popular South Austin restaurants and entertainment hot-spots!   This two bedroom one bathroom South Austin home built in 1949 has only had two owners!  There has been extensive remodeling over the last ten years, yet with all of the modern updates, this 950 square foot home retains its vintage charm!  The current owner has added two out-buildings, one is a storage shed/ laundry room and the other is a fully soundproofed recording studio.  This 200 square foot, free standing structure was designed and built with quiet in mind.  A fully functional music studio soundproofed with high quality Auralex materials.  The studio is wired for electricity, internet, cable, and has a quiet (26 dB) split A/C and heater wall unit.  This space is now being used as a recording studio but it does not have to be limited to that.  If you office from home or are a working artist, this will make an excellent home office or art/craft studio where you could “go to work” every day but never have to go further than your own backyard!  You will find this property under featured listings here, please call or text me for more information and to schedule a showing at 512-964-6441 or email.

Thanks for looking!
