119 Hickory – Wonderful Weekley-Built Home with 3-Car Garage in Georgetown Village

01 Front

The blue home that makes you smile.

The Georgetown Village neighborhood has become sort of an icon of Georgetown.  How do I know that?  Because Austin agents are beginning to show this neighborhood to their clients.  A couple years ago, you had to bribe an Austin agent with free food to drive past Round Rock!  I’m not offering free food, but we are offering a stunning example of a David Weekley home built in 1999 (you know, the good ‘ole days when builders earned their reputation and stood out from the rest with attention to detail and exceptional quality).  This 1936-sf home has been meticulously cared for by a loving family for the past two years and now here’s a chance for someone else to add their personal touch to it.

02 Front

Like the porch, the swinging bench is an extension of the home – try it out!

119 Hickory was painted sky blue by David Weekley.  His affection for colors is one of his signatures.  With coordinating dark blue shutters and popping white trim and columns, this home stands out among traditional homes.  The “blue home,” as it is affectionately known to its neighbors,welcomes you with a large inviting porch.  Inside the foyer, your eyes will immediately look up at the vaulted ceilings and crown moulding.  It will also be hard not to notice the front dining room (easily transformed into an in-home office) to the side and the beautiful living room staring in front of you.  The living room and kitchen compete for your attention.  The living room tempts you with warm wood laminate floors, an unobstructed view to the back yard, and soaring ceilings above.  The kitchen is full of shiny toys like a 5-burner range/oven combo, an equally expensive two-tier dishwasher, a large bottom-freezer refrigerator, and matching microwave and faucet fixture with updated recessed lighting above.

05 Living

There is a term that describes what you see: Great Room

08 Kitchen

Updated appliances you’ll find in much more expensive homes.

09 Kitchen

Countertops and cabinets galore meeting right up to the stainless steel refrigerator (it stays!).

The cozy second floor has three bedrooms with high ceilings.  This keeps the second floor remarkably cool even in the summer.  Each bedroom is very large with large bathrooms and lots of storage.  The extra play area upstairs can be left to your imagination, but here are a few ideas that it can be used for – home work, reading, board games, or video games.

23 Game

Have extra space and don’t know what to do with it? Houzz and Pinterest are good starts.

24 Ceiling

View from the top.

The lot has its perks as well.  An extra wide lot may not seem like a big deal, but the owners have found great use for it.  The side yard has been blocked off for private garden use.  Expand on this idea, turn it into a dog run, place a tool shed here, or take down the fence and add it back to the back yard.  The builder also chose this specific home to build a 3-car tandem garage due to the extra large lot.  You won’t find many homes with a 3-car garage in this neighborhood and none in this price range!  Truly a valuable space for organizing tools, storing a recreational vehicle, or housing a long-term project. 119 Hickory is priced at $212,000.  For a private showing or more information, feel free to contact me here.

113 Orange Tree – Spacious Home in Central Location

01 Front

One of the larger homes in the neighborhood with five spacious bedrooms.

These days you won’t hear the phrase “bang for the buck” in real estate circles, at least not in central Texas.  Most of the home values have risen due to the influx of buyers from all over the country.  You’ll be lucky to find a 3-bedroom home in Georgetown that is move-in ready for less than $165,000.  Well today might be your lucky day (or unlucky day if you don’t act soon!).  113 Orange Tree is a 2,182-sf home with 5 bedrooms (yes, FIVE bedrooms) and plenty of common living space to accommodate the occupants.  4 of the bedrooms are on the second floor within 10 steps of the washer and dryer.  The 5th bedroom is a private bedroom on the first floor that can be doubled as a home office, game room, or any other flex room idea you can think of.  The kitchen is accompanied by 2 dining areas and 2 separate living spaces.  The best part?  The home is completely move-in ready and is listed at a non-eye gouging price of $168,000.  At $77/sf, this is one of the best bargains in Georgetown and you will be hard pressed to find something similar for less money.

04 Living

Large living room no matter how many kids live here.

06 Family

Versatile room can be used for living, dining, or enjoying your favorite book by the fire.

This home isn’t all about value.  The home is located in the Crystal Knoll neighborhood of Georgetown.  It happens to be right next to Georgetown High School, I-35, 130 Toll, downtown Georgetown, and San Gabriel Park.  It’s also one of the closest communities in Georgetown to commute to Jarrell, Temple, Killeen, and Fort Hood.  This is a golden opportunity to purchase an affordable home with plenty of room that does not add to your daily commute.  Upgrades in this house include new wood-look floors, base boards, paint, back door, hardware, and tile in the upstairs bathroom.  The back yard may not be the largest in the neighborhood, but it’s plenty for a trampoline, dog run, or above ground pool.  It’s also wide enough to throw a baseball or football.  If you just like to enjoy the view, it’ll make for quick and easy maintenance of green St. Augustine grass.

15521 Gustine Cove – Nice Updates in Brushy Creek

01 Front

A perfect combination of curb appeal and privacy.

15521 Gustine Cove is a stately home in Brushy Creek with the character you hope for in an established neighborhood and the modern conveniences in today’s home.  It stands tall at 3,061 sf, 4 bedrooms, 3 separate living rooms, and 2 dining areas.  It’s location is one of the most convenient in Round Rock.  You are approximately 5 minutes away from the 45 Toll, which is key to traveling to Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Pflugerville, or Hutto in under 20 minutes.

The interior of the home has been freshened up with dark hand-scraped hickory wood floors, crown molding, new light fixtures, fresh paint, new tile floors, and recent carpet that still looks new.  You will walk through the home and wonder how you could have lived in something less than 3,000 sf.  The living areas are smartly placed – one for a relaxing game room upstairs, one open to the kitchen that leads to the back yard for large parties, and one for the quieter and more intimate setting by the formal dining.  Bedrooms are all up to facilitate easy night time routines.

06 Living

One of three large living areas, this one filled with hickory wood floors.

13 Master

Extra large master bedroom to enjoy “me” time.

Exterior upgrades are just as extensive as the interior.  Although it is not surrounded by brick, all of the original exterior siding was replaced with durable, long-lasting hardiplank in 2013.  The pergola stands on large Texas cedars.  Lights are included to set the mood.  The rock wall serves as your personal flower, vegetable, or herb garden with minimal effort to planting, pruning, or plucking.  A shaded back yard is larger than others as all the trees and associated maintenance is on the other side of the fence.

02 Rear

This baby got back – custom pergola, new hardiplank, fresh exterior paint, custom rock wall garden.

03 Rear

Extra large patio has two sitting areas, one for dining and one for marshmallows.

Wonderful neighbors, cul de sac street, large corner lot, and great Round Rock schools are included in the low-for-the-neighborhood price of $290,000 ($95/sf).  If you’d like a private showing or are in the market for a similar home, feel free to contact me here.
