This home has a fascinating history - built in 1896, was originally owned by the First Methodist Church of Georgetown, TX and served as a parsonage. In 2006 it was purchased and moved to Austin, and the owners renovated it from top to bottom. It’s an open concept house; the central living/dining/kitchen area is an entertainer’s great room, full of light and color. The updated gourmet kitchen has Viking appliances, a beverage fridge and lots of counter space for cooking and serving. It’s hard to make great memories in a boring white box – come get weird and wonderful in a turnkey, character-filled classic.
The large master bedroom has a seating area, updated bath with soaking tub and shower, custom tile that coordinates all the bathrooms. The wallpaper in the third bedroom is a reproduction of a Dutch seventeenth century artist - a dramatic and beautiful addition. Custom light fixtures from Austin Austin's Studio K Glass, Mockingbird Design and Houston artist Gertrude Barnstone. All of the amazing lighting, garden sculpture and bird feeders convey. A second living room surrounded by windows designed to match the original 19th century architecture has plentiful built-in cabinets for media storage. The screened in porch has views of a Japanese style garden- a great place for morning coffee, or a relaxing libation in the evening.
