902 W Mary Street 2 Austin, TX 78704
Step right in to the 78704 lifestyle in this turnkey property, a newly-built stand-alone single family home designed by award-winning architect Jay Hargrave, featured on the American Institute of Architects homes tour. A mile and a half from downtown, close to restaurants, bars, and shops on South Congress, South First, and South Lamar, this charming Bouldin Creek home is close to everything, including Zilker Park and the hike-and-bike trail around Ladybird Lake. The International Style home is a loft-like flexible living space with numerous permutations possible, depending on the creative impulses of the occupant. On the lower level, a sculptural staircase separates the primary bedroom suite from a creative space formed by the converted garage, which has alternately been used as a master bedroom, home office, and art studio, flooded with natural light through dual glass roll-up doors connecting to the landscape and inner courtyard. Upstairs, the public space feels like you’re in a treehouse, surrounded by Live Oaks, with tall ceilings, a ribbon window system wrapping around the perimeter of the building, and a private upper deck. Here too the space is flexible, with kitchen and dining areas relatively constant, and an authentic wood-burning fireplace anchoring the living area, presently being used as a third bedroom. High-end finishes include new custom cabinetry, leathered black granite countertops, white subway tile, wood and polished concrete floors, stainless steel appliances, and European fixtures and fittings throughout. The home is oriented around a private interior courtyard with a shared outdoor deck, table, chairs, and a roaring fire pit, with a communal organic garden out front. The overall aesthetic is quintessential South Austin, like a page out of Modern Marfa, with an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, ideal for entertaining. Available September 1st, furnished or unfurnished.
