4203 Duval St Austin – in central Austin’s historic Hyde Park.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of doing an open house in one of my favorite central Austin neighborhoods, historic Hyde Park. Before I even lived in Austin I had a crush on Hyde Park, and when I moved here I fell madly in love with the central Austin community. In fact, when I first moved to Austin I lived in north Austin. I would travel down to Hyde Park and hang out in Quacks and Dolce Vita just to soak the beloved historic area in.
Hyde Park is one of those areas you love to soak in. Large trees, great parks and great dining. It’s also become a popular bed and breakfast spot. In fact, just a few blocks over from 4203 Duval is a city golf course. Its one of those areas you will boast about living in!
So of course when an agent in my office listed her home in Hyde Park I jumped at the chance to hold it open. This is a fantastic 1930’s home that has literally been remodeled and practically rebuilt from the ground up.What’s really great about this house is its location. It is literally diagonal across from Hyde Park Bar & Grill, Dolce Vita Gelato & Espresso Bar, Quacks Bakery, Hyde Park Grocery and Asti Italian Restaurant. Also down the street is the long time popular Mother’s Vegetarian Cafe. So now you might be thinking, that’s a pretty busy area, must be loud in the house. I wondered that myself. But when I held the house open it was Sunday, lunch time and SXSW weekend. I could not believe how quite it was in the house. The owners had extra insulation sprayed in to act as a sound buffer.
This is a professional remodeled home, not an amateur do it yourself job. The staircase is a hand crafted stair case and absolutely gorgeous. It’s wide with dark wood and a hand rail. The second floor is breathtaking, the master bed and bath are huge and luxurious. Both baths have great modern touches like the contemporary bowl sink. Originally the home was completely flat in the front. As you can see from the picture a porch ledge and post were added giving it a bit more charm and character.
In addition there is a garage! Now anyone that knows historical neighborhoods knows this is a rare find. The garage is spacious and has a rear entry for the home owners.
