2401 EAST 8TH STREET AUSTIN, TX 78702

THIS IS THE BUILDER’S PERSONAL HOME WITH PERSONAL TOUCHES THROUGHOUT. THE BUILDER’S WIFE IS AN ARTIST, YOU WILL FEEL AND APPRECIATE THE BENEFIT OF THIS AS YOU GO THROUGH THE HOME.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION - SEE THE MAP
CORNER LOT WITH VIEWS
WALK TO HOT SPOTS
NEW COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT COMING BELOW
PREMIUM STYLE AND FINISH

3 BEDROOMS
2.5 BATHROOMS
1,851 SQUARE FEET - BUYER TO VERIFY
FLOWING FLOORPLAN
HIGH CEILINGS PROVIDING TONS OF VOLUME

TWO AWESOME PARTY DECKS, ONE BEING ON THE ROOF OF THE 2ND FLOOR. YOU HAVE VIEWS GALORE, I SAW THE AUSTONIAN BUILDING DOWNTOWN WHILE STANDING ON THE DECK YESTERDAY. TRUST ME IT’S NICE. THERE IS AN OUTDOOR SOLAR SHOWER UP THERE TOO. THE FLOOR IS A PRODUCT CALLED HLM 5000, IT IS A POLYMER SCREEN. IT IS ABOUT TRIPLE THE COST OF A TYPICAL ROOFTOP DECK FLOOR. WHILE ON THE UPPER DECK, YOU WILL SEE THE HOME HAS A METAL ROOF. YOU HAVE GAS STUBS OUTSIDE FOR EASY CONNECTION TO YOUR GRILL.

2 CAR GARAGE -SINGLE DOOR - THAT IS CURRENTLY THE ULTIMATE MAN CAVE, IT’S INSULATED AND IS ACTUALLY COOLED, ALTHOUGH WE ARE NOT CONSIDERING IT AS SUCH WITH REGARDS TO SQUARE FOOTAGE. THERE IS A BUILT IN BAR, AND YOU WILL FIND THE TANKLESS WATER IN HERE AS WELL.


SMART HOME FEATURING THE VIVINT SYSTEM, http://www.vivint.com/ THERE ARE TWO CONTROL PADS IN THE HOUSE AND THEY ARE OPERABLE VIA PHONE AS WELL. WITH THIS SYSTEM YOU CAN CHANGE THE TEMPERATURE, LOCK AND UNLOCK DOORS, ACTIVATE THE ALARM AND VIEW ANY OF THE 6 CAMERAS STRATEGICALLY POSITIONED. YOU CAN ADD OTHER UPGRADES AND CUSTOMIZE THE LEVEL OF SERVICE TO YOUR LIKING. THE HOME IS WIRED WITH CAT V AND FOR SPEAKERS.

TIGER STRAND BAMBOO FLOORING ON THE STAIRS AND UPSTAIRS THAT ARE REALLY NICE LOOKING. I’VE NOT SEEN THEM ELSEWHERE.

POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORS DOWNSTAIRS, HIGH BASEBOARDS, JUST RIGHT.

THERE ARE HIDDEN SPACES IN THIS HOUSE.

AND THE ROOM YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR, THE OWNER’S SUITE, IT’S LARGE, IT’S GOT VAULTED CEILINGS AND A WINDOW OVERLOOKING THE LIVING ROOM BELOW. THERE ARE ALSO BUILT IN ITEMS THAT KEEP THINGS LOOKING CRISP AND CLEAN. WE HAVE A VERY UNIQUE BATHROOM WITH A RAIN SHOWER HEAD, PLUS TWO SIDE HEADS, CUSTOM BLENDED MOSAIC TILE AND WAS DESIGNED TO BOTH SOOTH AND BE VISUALLY PLEASING. AGAIN, IT IS ONE OF A KIND AND YOU WILL DIG IT. THERE ARE ALSO WHISPER SHUT, SUSPENDED CABINETS AND A DUAL SINK THAT IS UNCOMMON. BE SURE TO NOTICE HOW THE CLOSET FROM HERE HAS A PASS THROUGH FEATURE STRAIGHT TO THE LAUNDRY AREA. WE HAVE SOME FULL SIZE LG STACKED UNITS IN HERE OF CRIMSON RED THAT WILL BE YOURS WITH THE RIGHT OFFER. IF YOU WERE DESIGNING A BATHROOM FOR YOURSELF, YOU’D LIKELY END UP WITH ONE LIKE THIS.

ABOUT THE LIVING ROOM! THE WORD VOLUME IS WHAT COMES TO MY MIND. YOU HAVE A HUGE ROOM, BETWEEN THE KITCHEN AND THE MASSIVE OUTDOOR DECK WITH CEILINGS AT LEAST 18 FEET HIGH. THE USE OF WINDOWS, WHICH ARE COMMERCIAL GRADE METAL, IN THIS ROOM MAKES EXCELLENT USE OF THAT SPACE. A BUILT IN SHELVING / ART WILL BE ENJOYED BY THE NEW OWNER. WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE DOOR TO GO OUTSIDE, AGAIN, THIS IS THE WAY A BUILDER BUILDS HIS FAMILY’S PERSONAL RESIDENCE AND YOU WILL DIG THE GARAGE DOOR TO THE DECK.

THE KITCHEN HAS HIGH LEVEL APPLIANCES, ALL OF STAINLESS STEEL AND IS OPEN TO THE LIVING ROOM JUST THE WAY YOU WOULD LIKE IT TO BE. YOU CAN MAKE MARGARITAS AND GUACAMOLE WHILE ENJOYING GUESTS BOTH INDOORS AND OUT. WHISPER SHUT DRAWERS AND DOORS, BUT OF COURSE. IT’S THE KITCHEN YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR. YOU HAVE LEVEL 5 “WOODSTONE” COUNTERTOPS IN THE KITCHEN THAT YOU WILL SEE NOWHERE ELSE. THEY ARE TO DIE FOR.


THE GREAT OUTDOORS A COMMERCIAL GRADE, IRON TRELLIS THEY CALL AN “IVY CAGE” IS A FOCAL POINT, IT IS BLOOMING WITH TRUMPET VINES AND PROVIDES SHADE IN THE SUMMER, WHEN BARREN IN WINTER IT ALLOWS FOR LIGHT AND WARMTH.
THE WORKING GARDEN’S PLANTERS ARE IRRIGATED USING CONDENSATION FROM THE AIR CONDITIONER, ON A TIMER AND CURRENTLY HAVE 5 FOOT TOMATOES PLANTS BEING HARVESTED. A FULL BLOWN COMPOST UNIT IS IN PLACE AND THERE ARE CUSTOM METAL SLIDERS TO LET ITEMS SLIDE OUT OF THE KITCHEN WINDOW INTO THE COMPOSTER. TWO GRASS AREAS ARE ALSO ON TIMED IRRIGATION.
THE IRON ENTRY GATE IS “WORKING ART” AND IS SIMPLY COOL AS CAN BE.

SO, IN BEDROOMS 2 AND 3, YOU WILL FIND HIGH QUALITY MURPHY BEDS THAT ARE VERY TASTEFUL AND MODERN IN APPEARANCE. AS MENTIONED, THE BUILDER’S WIFE IS AN ARTIST AND HAVING FLEXIBLE LIVE / WORK OPTIONS REIGNS TRUE HERE. THE MATTRESS COMES WITH THE BED. IF YOU’D LIKE, WE CAN UNINSTALL AND HAVE THE WALL BACK TO NEW. ALSO, IN BOTH THESE BEDROOMS, YOU WILL FIND BRILLIANTLY USED SPACE FOR BOTH CLOTHING AND SMALLER ITEMS AS WELL IN THE DRAWER / SHELVING SYSTEM. BE SURE TO OPEN THE DRAWERS IN THE CLOSET, THEY ARE SUPER SMOOTH. WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, THE CLOSET DOORS ARE SOLID CORE AND YOU WILL FIND THEY ROLL AS SMOOTH AS ANY YOU’VE EVER TOUCHED. BEDROOM TWO ACTUALLY HAS TWO SUCH CLOSETS. THESE BEDROOMS SHARE A GLASS SHOWER DOOR BATHROOM EQUIPPED IN A WONDERFUL WAY. VERY EDGY AND SMART STUFF.

YOU ARE LOCATED WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF SO MANY OF EAST AUSTIN’S COOLEST EATERIES. A TWO MINUTE UBER RIDE TO DOWNTOWN IS APPEALING TOO.




A PERSONAL NOTE, I WORK PRETTY MUCH EXCLUSIVELY IN EAST AUSTIN AND HAVE SOLD DOZENS OF PROPERTIES IN THE AREA. THERE ARE SOME SWEET RESIDENCES OUT THERE FOR SURE, COUNT THIS ONE AMONG THE BEST OF THEM.

The seller's expected / anticipated sales price was exceeded by a good bit on this home..... keeping the finger on the pulse means putting Benjamins in the bank.

The builder is a creative and gifted man. His wife an artist with a fabulous sense of style.

They built this home for themselves and it is one of my all time favorites in the Golden Triangle of #78702 zip code.

As a used home, this one fetched nearly new construction prices at the time of $330 / foot.

I sold two more of their homes soon after and we continue to do business today.

It's a good life.

Scott

Better love what you do and who you do it for.....
