Property Description

Bring your artwork - this house has the perfect wall space and lighting! Situated in a great Cedar Park location with convenient access to Baltimore Ave. Walkable to many popular restaurants & shops - and just steps from the #13 Trolley stop. Enjoy the urban amenities while also having a garden type setting at home. Its the best of both worlds. Built in1886, this 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Queen Anne twin has been lovingly cared for, its historic character preserved with each restoration. The sprawling front porch is perfect for sitting with neighbors, having coffee or cocktails, or just enjoying the outdoors and surrounding landscape. The back porch is enclosed for all weather use and features warm period woodwork and beveled glass windows, facing the large, lushly planted back yard. FIRST FLOOR; From the moment you step foot onto the tiled foyer, you'll find yourself enthralled by the intricate details and the rich historical tapestry that weaves through every corner of this home. Upon entry, artistic flooring tile, stained glass, hardwood floors with ribbon inlay, 10 ft. ceilings and the grand, well preserved traditional wooden staircase adorn the entryway and welcome you into this home. The light on the banister, illuminating the hallway, adds a touch of elegance and functionality. You will immediately appreciate the nod to excellent craftsmanship and quality as you tour this lovely home. Oversized doors lead to the bright living room with rebuilt floor-to-ceiling windows, interior shutters, chandelier, crown molding and a decorative fireplace with a tiled hearth and carved mantle. This is a great room to welcome guests or simply spend time taking in the natural light and surroundings. The dining room is spacious enough to comfortably house a sideboard, a hutch and ample seating for friends and family. The natural light pours in, thanks to southern exposure. Other features include crown molding, a decorative ceiling medallion and chandelier. Pass through to the hallway that leads to the kitchen. The eat-in kitchen is functional yet modest. Side by side LG refrigerator, gas cooking and an exposed brick wall provides texture and character. There is also a back staircase. SECOND FLOOR; 2 spacious adjoining bedrooms with high ceilings and large windows. These could easily be separate rooms or combined for a large primary suite. A hall bathroom includes black and white basketweave marble tile flooring, tiled shower over tub, a pedestal sink with medicine chest and a linen closet. A sun-drenched parlor in the back of the house, amazing SW exposure and light, has wonderful views of the garden and a built in window bench that offers nominal storage. A decorative fireplace with a tiled hearth adds warmth and character to an already exquisite space. This room has closets and could be part of a primary suite set up or it could be an extra bedroom with the addition of some doors. Its simply a gorgeous bonus room on this floor! THIRD FLOOR; 3 additional rooms, a full bathroom and access to the attic. This floor was used primarily for home office space and guest quarters. There is a skylight that lets in a nice continuous flow of natural light. BASEMENT; Full, unfinished, tall ceilings, laundry, shelving, storage, bilco doors, Bradford White 40 gallon gas-fired hot water heater, stone foundation. When asked, the two things the current owners appreciated the most were the warm community and the natural light that pours into the house - from the large floor-to-ceiling windows on the first floor to the skylight above the third floor.
