Do not miss this "Mid-Century meets Craftsman" beauty in walkable Rosedale! 2397 sqft in the main house (4 beds, 3 full baths + dedicated office) and a modern 348 sqft fully-permitted guesthouse (1 bed, 1 bath + kitchenette) that was completely renovated in 2022. This light-filled home exudes warmth and character in every room with oak wood floors and intricate trim and moldings. Architectural details such as high ceilings and large windows in the kitchen and dining room make a statement. This home has been tastefully remodeled and expanded over the years while keeping some of the original 1947 details. High-end paint, light fixtures, hardware, and custom window coverings make the interiors inviting. Brand new walk-in shower and Thermador gas cooktop. Custom cabinets in the kitchen, office, and upstairs landing provide incredible storage (in addition to a large storage room on the 2nd floor). A completely reimagined exterior with custom Benjamin Moore paint and low-maintenance landscaping, including ~2000 sqft of Smartturf, in the shaded backyard with mature oak trees offers year-round outdoor entertaining options. Other features include a metal roof, level-2 EV charger, Solar, Nest cameras, Ecobee thermostats, 1st floor primary suite, 1st floor guest room with Murphy bed, and more. 2 blocks to Ramsey Park. 5-minute walk to Central Market, easy walkability to Shoal Creek hike/bike trail, and all the fantastic restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs in the neighborhood. This is a very unique property in Central Austin!
