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.

9101 Castle Pines – When Details Matter

More and more often the phrase “Custom Built Home” is thrown around by Realtors and builders attempting to describe a home that is built just like another, whether it’s down the street, in another neighborhood, or in a different city.  Sometimes it is difficult to tell that a home truly is built and designed solely for that particular customer.  When it comes to 9101 Castle Pines, make no mistake about it – this is as custom built a home as you can get.  At 4,057 sf, this home is one of the larger and nicer homes in this part of Avery Ranch with the added luxury of Elsa England Elementary School and McNeil High School, something money can’t buy.

01 Front

9101 Castle Pines is why they tell you not to judge a book by its cover.

I could continue to bore you with a list of custom finishes to this home, but that would involve scrolling through several pages.  However, one few key feature is the complete in-home theater on the second floor.  This is not just a game room or movie room.  If you are serious about entertaining, or just love watching movies in its intended format, this is the place for you.  A Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080p projector is used to show BluRay movies on an in-your-face 144″ media screen that works in conjunction with 5.1 surround sound in-wall Paradigm speakers.  Watch comfortably with your friends and family in 10 theater chairs all with electric recline.  As a bonus, the front four chairs are equipped with “butt boosters” so you can literally feel the on-screen action. Dimmable sconces and blacked out windows set the mood for any genre of movie.  Oh, and all the walls are insulated for sound so the rest of the home is not bothered.

02 Home Theater

Say bye bye to lame “media rooms” and hello to a real “in-home theater.”

03 Home Theater

Share the wealth with nine of your loved ones.

Offered at $650,000, this represents the same price you would pay for many of the cookie cutter homes in Avery Ranch that do not go to Elsa England ES or McNeil HS nor have the exclusive custom finishes like this one.  Contact me for a showing as words and pictures cannot do this home justice.

David Weekley built this in the perfect location.

If you like spending time outside, this is the home for you. Sitting directly in front of Summers Park, this 1,598 sf home has a park view from the front and a view of trees from the back.  The patio is custom built with a beautiful gable overlooking the stone patio that is larger than the size of most living rooms.  The stones were hand picked and laid in a curvaceous form with a nice stone wall exterior for safety or sitting.  Two large outdoor ceiling fans and large mature trees keep the back cool even in the dead heat of summer and the two custom water features will make you feel like vacation is just one step away from the kitchen. The privacy is unmatched as your neighbors are hidden in the trees. There is plenty of space to host all your friends and family as you enjoy the sunsets and moonlight together.

Charming and Delightful, 15 Mins to Downtown Austin – 8003 Boggy Ridge in Beaconridge

Welcome to 8003 Boggy Ridge Drive, Austin, in the neighborhood of Beaconridge.  Located just south of Austin, Beaconridge is a great neighborhood close to parks, shopping, and restaurants.  More importantly, 8003 Boggy Ridge is only 15 minutes from 6th Street, South Congress, and other downtown Austin hot spots!   Most single family homes this close to downtown are either way too expensive, or need way too much work prior to moving in.  Well, the best part about this is that you don’t have to live in a dump to be so close to downtown.   At $169,900, 8003 Boggy Ridge is extremely affordable and completely move-in ready with over $15,000 in recent updates and repairs.

Green trees and a big blue sky remind you of country living, but you are only 15 minutes from downtown.

8003 Boggy Ridge is ideal for any type of owner (singles, couples, families, UT undergrads and grads, working professionals, fist time home buyers, and even investors).  With all the recent updates and repairs done by the current owner, there is not going to be expensive maintenance typical of homes this age.  But you will get the charm and allure of a home built in 1979.  Also, utility costs will be minimal, reasonable, and affordable in this sub-1,500 sf home.

If you can squeeze this size bedroom into 1,500 sf, you are doing something right.

The most appealing update is the new wood laminate flooring throughout the house, with new carpet in the bedrooms and tile flooring in the bathroom.  This gives the home such an elegant look and feel that you might forget you’re just a few minutes from downtown.  The entire interior of the house has been re-painted with low-VOC paint so the home fits right in with the green movement in Austin; the exterior of the house is covered with a new coat of paint for the next owner; and your newly installed roof is covered with a 25-year warranty.

Owner chose wood laminate to save the trees. Same great look and feel!

There have been numerous other updates and repairs done to make this home ready for the next owner, so make sure you check out the attachments, photos, and video below.

Entertainer’s Delight for an Austinite – 11608 Larch Valley

Host to your heart’s desire in this spacious home with an open and elegant floor plan.  11608 Larch Valley is located in north Austin, TX in the cozy neighborhood of Pioneer Crossing just minutes from I-35.  The drive to downtown Austin is less than 20 minutes so it’s perfect for those looking to avoid the urban sprawl and still enjoy the benefits of the Austin culture and amenities.  The home is a shade under 2,000 sf (1,936 sf to be exact), but it feels much bigger than that due to its intelligently-designed floor plan and your guests will appreciate it when you’re playing host to a dinner or baby shower!

Priced at $175,000, this home comes equipped with an upgraded kitchen that includes granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a nice, long breakfast bar.  A formal dining room is placed right next to the kitchen to conveniently serve a 10-course meal without tiring.  More importantly, your food will stay hot and your guests will not go hungry.  The rest of the home has recessed lighting and upgraded light fixtures (with ceiling fans), but you won’t even notice them with the natural light flooding through the many big windows in the home.  Another bonus is the front office, which easily converts to a fourth bedroom.  This is a great place  for working at home full-time, bringing home work from the office, or using for a third child or out of town guest.

Dining Room can also be used as a Sitting Room, Game Room, or 2nd Living Room.

 

If you want to really impress your guests, show off your Texas barbeque skills on the large back patio!  The patio is naturally located off the breakfast area and kitchen.  It features a large concrete slab ready for a pergola for instant shade, or if you’re handy, you could build a beautiful wooden deck.  The lush back yard comes with automatic sprinkler and will complement your patio nicely as it serves to be a good distraction for the kids and dogs while you grill your meat to perfection under the covered patio.  Lastly, the master bedroom is privately tucked away in the rear of the house to guarantee your privacy no matter how many guests are in the house.  It features a wide view of your back yard and private entrance to the master bathroom.  The master bathroom is equipped with double vanity, separate shower, large bath tub, and large walk-in closet.  Best of all, it’s a great place to relax and catch a breather during your party!

Master bedroom makes the Queen-size bed look small!
