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.

818 Cactus – Prime Location under $160,000

818 Cactus is located in a prime spot in Round Rock.  It’s just minutes from downtown, toll roads, and I-35.  You can get to Austin in 20 minutes, Georgetown in 15 minutes, and Cedar Park in 10 minutes.  There isn’t another home on the market that can claim that in this price range.  Built in the late ’70s, this 1,475-sf home also boasts a large back yard, mature oak trees, and no HOA restrictions.

01 Front

Gorgeous curb appeal and mature oak tree.

Possibly the most overlooked feature of this home is the amount of upgrades and renovations done very recently.  The main updates include two fully remodeled bathrooms, granite counter in the kitchen, fresh paint, and recent carpet. An original wood-burning fire place, large rear covered deck, and a large tool shed complete this home.  You must see this to believe.

02 Kitchen

Upgraded kitchen includes granite counters and detailed back splash.

04 Living

Nice modern setting incorporates classic fireplace and mantle.

08 Master Bath

Fully renovated bathroom ready for your enjoyment.

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.

Classic Contemporary with Picturesque Setting – 4307 Adagio Place

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac is a home so picturesque inside and out that you’d swear you were at a Pottery Barn photo shoot. 4307 Adagio is a 3-bedroom home with a very nice classic contemporary style ready for move-in. The floor plan maximizes the 2,780 sf to include a private front office, formal dining, and game room or second living. Every room is the right size and big where it counts – master bedroom and bathroom suite, kitchen, living room, and breakfast area are noticeably big and open. High ceilings throughout, built-in bookshelves and niches, limestone fireplace, and elegant stairway banisters complete the look.

With curb appeal like this, you should be jealous of your neighbor's view.

The front porch is framed in wood beams and covered with an environment-friendly metal roof. Consider it your front row seats on a clear, starry night, or during a heavy lightning storm. Vaulted ceilings and ceramic tiles greet you in the foyer and give you a nice tour of the first floor.  The kitchen upgrades are designed to make any owner happy with knotty alder wood cabinets (also found in the bathrooms), granite counters, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.  There is a convenient opening to the formal dining room, and it overlooks the breakfast area and living room so the chef is always part of the conversation.

The alder wood cabinets insist you can be both knotty and nice.

The living room is a natural gathering spot in this house making it perfect for movie nights and other types of get-togethers.  The vaulted ceilings and wide hallways make you feel small, yet the built-in bookshelf and stone fireplace give the living room the coziness of a log cabin.  The beautiful banisters lead your eyes to the second floor where there is a game room, two bedrooms, and a full bathroom.  There are no shared walls between bedrooms and both are big enough to be guest rooms.  One of them even has a nice nook for reading or studying.  The game room can be used ideally as a media room, kids’ play room, or hobby/craft area.

This picture was not stolen from a magazine or website.

The only thing that hasn’t been completed is the back yard.  Big enough for an in-ground heated swimming pool and hot tub, fire pit with stone seats, outdoor kitchen under a gazebo or covered patio, and vegetable and herb garden, this is where you can imagine and implement your dream of a back yard retreat.  The canvas has been left blank for your very own style, placement, colors, and design.

If you’d like to schedule a showing, email me.

Rare Privacy in Newer Subdivision – 4309 Angelico in Sendero Springs

A home with privacy located in a newer subdivision is hard to find. Sure, you can get privacy on bigger lots in older neighborhoods. Sure, you can purchase a newer home in a newer neighborhood with neighbors to your left, right, and rear. Of course you can build a brand new home on a nice private lot, but that will cost you big money. 4309 Angelico has that rare combination of affordable privacy in a highly desirable and newer subdivision, Sendero Springs. In fact it is the only home in Sendero Springs that backs to a forest preserve and has a side yard big enough to feel like no one’s there. 4309 Angelico gives you privacy in a newer subdivision at an affordable price of $275,000.

This home sits on one of the most private lots in Sendero Springs.

With 3,099 sf, this house has plenty of space for 4 bedrooms, a media room, a dedicated office, a formal dining room, and two living rooms.   The media room is isolated on the west wing of the second floor so you can watch movies or play the drums as loud as you want.  It’s also great for a common game room or pool table with two big closets to store all the toys, games, and billiard equipment.  The dedicated office and french doors are perfect for working from home and keeping your work life separate from your home life.  The kitchen has been updated with silestone counters, stainless steel appliances, and wood laminate floors that spread to a breakfast area large enough to seat 6 comfortably.  The kitchen opens up to the living room, guaranteeing that you don’t miss any of the action.  The best feature, however, may be the main living room with vaulted ceilings, 6 large windows that provide natural light and unobstructed views to the greenbelt, and a warm fireplace  to get you through the winter months.  This type of living room with a view like this is normally found in homes priced well over $300,000.

Look straight out those windows and enter into your personal arboretum.

The back patio setting is a great place to star gaze in the cool night or watch the wind blow across the tree tops of the forest preserve.  The huge wood deck expands the width of the home and every seat is front row to the greenbelt.  Full irrigation of the yard and flower beds mean you can spend more time enjoying the view.  The big side yard gives you additional privacy and is easily accessible from the back yard.  It’s a very flexible space that can be used for throwing the football, baseball, or frisbee, playing soccer, hosting Easter egg hunts, a fantastic dog run, growing herbs and vegetables, placing a tool shed, etc.  It’s certainly a nice extra to have in a home where nothing else is needed.

Some things you don't get tired of - like a view full of trees and blue sky.

If you want to see this rare and beautiful home, give me a call or email to set an appointment.

Luxury Home in Round Rock – 3551 Alexandrite in Walsh Ranch

It’s not often you find a true luxury home in Round Rock for under $100/sf that also feeds into exemplary-rated Cactus Ranch ES and James Garland Walsh MS (schools independently rated by Texas Education Agency). It’s not often you find a home with a game room, home theater, formal dining, living room, and second living room for $365,000. It’s not often you find a floor plan with three secondary bedrooms on the second floor, and master bedroom with dedicated home office or study on the first floor. This is a rare find in the highly desired subdivision of Walsh Ranch and 3551 Alexandrite has all the updates and upgrades you’d expect in this neighborhood.

Picture perfect setting in Walsh Ranch.

A feeling of grandeur consumes you when you enter through the wood door with its custom glass and wrought iron work. Your eyes immediately look up to the soaring vaulted ceilings, just barely after getting a glimpse of the wood floors beneath you. The foyer insists you take a moment to appreciate the size of the front entry way. The second living room and formal dining room flank you and watch closely as you make your next move.

Foyer serves as an appetizer to the main house.

The impeccable kitchen is fit for a chef or a home maker.  Long stretches of granite, tiled back splash, and stainless steel appliances are pleasing to the eye and easy to clean.  The over-sized center island is more like The Big Island (instead of the standard Oahu-sized islands).  The big island provides for more counter space (to cook or to eat on) and more storage space underneath.  You’ll also notice a wood built-in bookcase for all your cook books and recipes.

With a kitchen this nice you'll want to eat in it, too.

After your gourmet meal, bring a bag of popcorn upstairs to enjoy a movie in your home theater.  Surround sound and plenty of room for theater-style seating, this is just like going to the movies on a Friday night except you don’t have to wait in line and no one will look at you funny if you’re in your pj’s.  Actually, as owner of the theater, you can do, wear, and watch whatever you want!

Be the boss of your own theater.

The one thing someone might have a problem with is the back yard.  It has a beautiful wood-stained deck, mature trees, plenty of green grass to run around in, and a rock wall for ultimate privacy.  However, it backs to a two-lane section of Sam Bass Road. This particular section is not heavily traveled and has a slow speed limit of 35 mph.  You don’t get fast moving vehicles or heavy-duty 18-wheelers and it’s impossible to hear any road noise from the interior of the home.  You’ll still be able to enjoy the occasional back yard barbecue  and clear starry nights with your friends and family.

Most people would love a back yard like this. Wouldn't you?

Large Home at Exceptional Value – 1801 Chino Valley in Round Rock Ranch

If you’re looking for a big home with four bedrooms, game room, separate dining room, living room, and second living room, 1801 Chino Valley is the house for you.  Priced at $162,900 with 3,312 sf ($49/sf), this is the lowest priced home in the entire neighborhood of Round Rock Ranch.  In fact, in the past 12 months, only one home sold for less and it was a foreclosure in bad condition.  Needless to say, this home is an exceptional value.

The size of this 4 BR home is not reflected in the low price.

This home is not just a big box with lots of square feet.  The first floor is upgraded with wood floors and unique architectural features.  There is an extended patio in the back with a separate pergola for starry nights.  The back yard is lined with mature, shady trees to protect from hot summer days and give natural privacy.  You would not expect to see these upgrades in this price range, but they’re here and ready for you to enjoy right when you move in. The second floor can use a flooring update as the carpet is worn.  This is the only update I would suggest, but what a great excuse to choose whatever flooring you want!

Extensive wood flooring throughout the first floor.

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!
