Property History
In its proud 121-yr history, I am only the 3rd occupant/owner. I bought it way back in 1974 -- 1st day on the market --- so......remarkably.....in the last 102 years (since back in 1915), this is the only time this rare, historic property has been available for purchase.
 
Property Description
Ultra prime downtown location - on a lush hillside under ancient trees in booming Austin, TX (# 1 in almost every national survey for economic and population growth) - this magnificent Victorian mansion can readily be used for either single-family residence (most of its history) or offices (primary use in recent decades) or a great live/work combo.

Is a former 1st place Revitalization Award winner for Austin. Superb CONDITION. Recently completely new roof...foundation work...refinished, gleaming, original hardwood floors, etc., etc. Floor-to-ceiling windows. 11-ft ceilings both downstairs AND upstairs - lending to the feeling of great volume in most of the rooms.  3 fireplaces. Massive floor-to-ceiling pocket doors. Rare, valuable special type of ocean glass from that era.
       
Mammoth wraparound front porch, w/ cooling nighttime breezes - sits up on hillside appx 8 -9 ft above street level.               Official historic landmark designation conveys SUBSTANTIAL, ONGOING, ANNUAL PARTIAL PROPERTY TAX BENEFITS TO NEW OWNER AS WELL.
 
Additional Notes
The property literally abuts the affluent, prestigious Judges' Hill Neighborhood.
         
The zoning is GO-H -- so it can be used for either commercial (for attorneys or other offices, classy coffee house, bed-and-breakfast, wedding/events center, etc., etc) or single-family residence --which was its usage for the majority of its history ....or.....an ideal live/work combo.....Is within a very few walking blocks to downtown/restaurants/entertainment.....state capitol....courthouse....University of Texas.....parks.....arts district.....and excellent accessibility to ALL parts of Greater Austin metro area.....
