Bought for Investment: Two homes in trendy North Loop

This immaculate, modern 4BR/2.5 bath new build in North Central Austin offers an attractive yet low-maintenance home. It features concrete floors, marble counters, and stainless appliances, many still under warranty. 2 new AC units keep the 2600sf home nice and cool, even with the 15′ ceilings. The unbelievably large closets are a sorority girl’s dream. Bath or shower? The downstairs master has both.Across a nice yard, the garage apartment uses its 450sf of space most efficiently: compact kitchen opens to living, separate bedroom accommodates a large bed, and the full bath includes a W/D. Large windows and high ceilings expand the space’s feel. Private entrance and balcony overlook the yard, away from street noise.  Each unit has a garage, one with a plug for electric cars, of course. Phenomenal walkability to popular North Loop, with its decidedly Austin  vibe of unique shops, eateries, and hangouts. Zoned for McCallum High School; easily accessible public transportation.

Travis Heights Renovation: Add Value by Taking It Back to Its 1920s-Era Glamour

Minutes from downtown yet far from traffic noise, on tranquil Kenwood Avenue, this investment project brings the Brigham Real Estate team together to take a $700K home and turn it into a Million Dollar home fit for Austin Luxury Network. BRE’s in-house Interior Designer Marisa Bushee of M Clare Designs brings her expertise to 78704 after a fabulous restoration of a Hyde Park Craftsman original. This home retains much of its original character, including hardwood floors (found under carpet), high ceilings, and an Art Deco bathroom. The 1990s addition added a second floor with two master bedrooms, each with magnificent views. The 2660sf home with plenty of storage, rare in Central Austin, has 4 bathrooms and a large kitchen ripe for remodel. Giant trees and neighboring vintage houses remind you that you’re not in suburbia. Stay tuned for the rising Zestimates as the restoration progresses…
