Property description

This downtown estate is centrally located in the historic neighborhood called Old Enfield, it is the central neighborhood of Austin with the highest concentration of historic grand homes and mansions. Adjacent to other designated historic (Austin Landmark) homes, just half a block away from the old Governor's Mansion. The house is also located just 3-4 blocks from great restaurants and cafes such as Jeffrey's, Cippolina, Josephine House, Zocalo, Cafe Medici and Galaxy Cafe.

It is also just blocks to Pease Park (which connects to all the downtown trails in Austin on bike or by foot without having to walk on a street), down the street from the Blanton Museum, the Capitol, the IMAX Theatre, and just a five minute drive to the center of downtown.

This home was built in 1937 and is an Austin Landmark and carries a lot of history. It is a Classic Revival example, and through its restoration process has kept all original hardwoods, moldings, and many other architectural traits. No expense has been spared to make this home an elegant, yet comfortable for today's standards.

For those who like to cook, the kitchen is a true chef's kitchen. It's central focus is a beautiful 60' La Cornue range equipped with a powerful gas stovetop, electric stovetop, gas grill, La Cornue's famous French Plate, and an electric and gas oven. There is a 12 foot island equipped with two full size sinks with commercial faucets, and four dish drawer dishwashers to make cleaning as easy as possible. It also has a full size SubZero refrigerator and full size SubZero freezer in order to fit any and all that you might need. The island also has seating for 6 people at the bar and there is a 60' TV to view while you cook, eat or entertain. Last, but not least, an old-fashioned butler's pantry with everything you need to make or serve a fabulous meal.

There is a deep 60's kidney shaped swimming pool which has been converted to salt water, a wonderful outdoor shower, a beautiful deck to enjoy the outdoors, and a beautiful front porch. The house is equipped with speakers for all common areas, including deck and swimming pool. There is a beautiful paneled media room so you can enjoy watching a game or movie with full surround sound system. There are two dining rooms, one for more intimate dinners of up to 6 people, and one for dinners of up to 12 people. The sitting areas are great as they offer many different conversation spots, or spots to curl up and read a book.
