Property Description

Laid-on-thick original charm combines with just-right upgrades and green features to create a dreamy home in a great Cedar Park location, where good design and smart custom storage sprinkled throughout maximize the utility of the already generous square footage. High ceilings, oversize windows and original pine floors run throughout; the main floor is graced with an original decorative fireplace and an arched leaded glass front window and has an open-floorplan feel while preserving stand-alone rooms true to an old house. The living room is defined by an extra-wide archway that connects to a spacious dining area with three windows, which in turn is defined by a large breakfast bar open to the positively enormous kitchen. Here you’ll find a cook’s dream—storage for days in cream Makellos Shaker-style soft-close cabinets and drawers, including two sets of pantry cabinets and a coffee station; stainless steel appliances including a GE side-by-side fridge, Frigidaire Gallery induction stove with convection oven and LG dishwasher with stainless steel tub. Function meets style with ceramic tile floors, quilted subway tile backsplash, and granite countertops with stainless undermount sink and gooseneck faucet. There’s custom overhead storage in the powder room, which doubles as a laundry room with workhorse LG frontloaders. Up a charming original staircase with a bold-yet-elegant wallpaper, the upstairs hallway has two linen closets and a Moroccan arch with plaster corbels. The front bedroom has a bay window with southern exposure and an original mirrored decorative mantel, and the good-sized middle bedroom has an extra-deep closet customized by Closets by Design. The stylish and sunny bathroom has a quilted subway tile tub surround, 14-inch ceramic tile floors and a big bank of floating wood shelves. The massive rear bedroom has two exposures of light and an extra-large closet also customized by Closets by Design. There’s outdoor space in front and back: the front porch with ceiling fan overlooks a cute front yard, and through a full-glass rear door there’s a large composite deck that overlooks a lawn with a raised planting bed. Green features include solar panels on the roof, a rain barrel and electric heat pumps with mini-splits for ultra-efficient heating and cooling. Three blocks from Clark Park, this home is in an ideal location close to three trolley lines and both the Woodland and Baltimore Ave strips.
