Property Details

The pace of modern life in Austin seems to move faster, but the timeless and idyllic Craftsman character at 1706 Kenwood feels like a step into history. Pride-of-ownership in this Travis Heights gem that impresses with enduring beauty and a sense of permanence that has become increasingly rare. The original home was built in 1932 and on a picturesque, tree-lined street blocks away from the neighborhood Stacy Park and minutes to Lady Bird Trail. Thoughtful timeless design of the addition, harmoniously blends and modernizes the home. The house retains some of its original features, such as real hardwood floors, craftsman wood door, and moldings, yet offers a beautifully designed kitchen, den, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The foundation was stabilized, installation of energy efficient windows, metal roof, custom gutters, custom window screens, water capturing system, a tankless water heater, and solar panels that together ensure sustainability. A workshop with electricity offers additional storage. A 2-car carport with alley access was added, along with a front yard parking spot. Furthermore, an additional primary suite is located upstairs with treetop views off a secondary bedroom that is ideal for an office or a nursery. And like all the best houses, it’s wonderful for entertaining both inside and out. Walk out to the back yard and enjoy the Cowboy pool or take a stroll through the garden, time seems to slow down in the backyard. Artfully blended into the landscape the pool includes a revamped cozy cabana for hanging towels or setting up a drink zone. The lot has been landscaped into a low water, xeriscape park-like setting where you can enjoy the outdoors, whether relaxing on the screened-in porch or entertaining by the Cowboy pool. Located in a prime area with easy access to dining, live music, and entertainment options. An incredible opportunity to own your dream home in one of Texas’ most desirable cities within walking distance to the popular Austin’s SOCO area!
