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.

Immaculate Wood Floors and Low Outdoor Maintenance – 14833 Irondale in Davis Spring

Davis Spring may be the best kept secret in N. Austin.

Set in the highly desirable neighborhood of Davis Spring, 14833 Irondale puts you closer to Austin than Avery Ranch! While everyone else is fighting over Avery Ranch real estate, the smart home buyer chooses Davis Spring over Avery Ranch for its affordability. At $241,000 for 2,366 sf (a shade under $102/sf), it has the same great access to shopping, highways, and exemplary schools (Sommer ES, Cedar Valley MS, McNeil HS) in Round Rock ISD, is priced lower, and has lower HOA fees per year. Compare this to the average sold price of $107/sf in Avery Ranch over the last 6 months and this is a deal!

This home has wood floors. When most sellers claim they have wood floors, only the study or living room has wood floors. When we say wood floors, we mean it! Over 80% of this home is laid in real plank wood floors – living room, dining room, bedrooms, hallways, office, you name it. The other 20% is covered in hard tile to easily repel water in the kitchen, breakfast area, and bathrooms. Now that’s smart upgrading.

Who needs a yard with a deck like this?

Tired of lawn maintenance cutting into your weekends? So was the seller, and that’s why he installed a 26′ x 9′ composite rear deck and covered patio in the back. There’s still enough room for a nice dog run on the side and small garden in the back, but nothing says peace and relaxation more than lounging on your deck chair in a t-shirt and shorts, enjoying the breeze and rustling tree leaves, and NOT doing yard work in the hot sun.

Not only is this home in a very exclusive market (10 sold in the last 6 months with 5 more currently under contract vs. 5 available), it’s one of the lowest priced. And with over $50,000 in upgrades in recent years (wood floors, rear patio and deck, 17 SEER air conditioning unit, 30-year roof), this is one of the best bargains available.  Ask your Realtor to show you this home today and if you don’t have one, call me!

Sponsoring Lunch at Champions School of Real Estate

Guess who’s the next lunch sponsor at Champions School of Real Estate?

Well, tomorrow’s the big day!  I’m sponsoring lunch for the students of the Principles of Real Estate II class on Monday.  This is the first time I’ve tried something like this, and I still don’t know what I’m going to do with the 20 minutes of time I have alloted!

Why am I doing this?

a.  I have so much money that I like to buy free lunches for rookie agents

b.  I am practicing my speech-giving skills

c.  I’m starting a revolution and I need a few volunteers

(Hint:  The answer is C)

Slow down there tiger, I don’t mean that type of revolution.  I mean a REAL ESTATE REVOLUTION!

At Mars Hill Realty Group, I’m offering real estate agents a revolution from the traditional real estate norms that plague our industry.

 

A revolution from the public distrust of real estate agents.

A revolution from the myriad of confusing marketing options available.

A revolution from ineffective negotiation expertise.

A revolution from poor pricing and predictive analysis skills.

– Your Favorite HOMEboy,

Edward
