3301 AUSTIN AVENUE

True Historic Beauty nestled in the heart of Castle Heights, one of the most sought-after historic neighborhoods in Texas. Once called the “Cottonland Villa”, this home truly is one of the most memorable mansions on Austin Avenue. Built in 1924 this 3862 sq.ft. home plus 484 sq.ft. apartment exudes architectural design, character and charm. Throughout the years it is obvious that it has been well cared for, in addition to being beautifully remodeled. You are immediately met with the grandeur of this home upon approach. Once on the terrace take notice of the attention to detail and extraordinary hand forged lion head iron front door. Entering the home your eyes are immediately drawn upward to the original antique artisan painted Turret ceiling as well as the stately staircase embellished with more hand-crafted iron workmanship. As you continue through the 3,862 sq.ft. home you are met with attention to detail at every turn. The main living room boasts hard wood floors, arched French doors, built in bookcases and a gorgeous cast iron stone fireplace. Down the hallway to the family room you will find an exquisite 19th century oak mantle, plenty of natural light, Saltillo tile and the best views of the spacious back yard. Through the archways you will enter the formal dining room perfect for any gathering, featuring hard wood floors and French doors. The quaint kitchen draws you in with space to be creative. Well equipped with double ovens, gas stove, plenty of counter space, leathered granite, tile backsplash, apron sink, Saltillo tile, wine rack, coffee station, island with built in shelving and breakfast room. The 2nd level offers tall ceilings, beautiful windows, French doors, plenty of natural light, a landing/sitting area overlooked by the original hand milled leaded glass window, crown molding and 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths (with a possible 3rd bathroom plumbed). The Jack and Jill bathroom features the original claw-foot tub. You will enjoy the master retreat with ample closet space, extra storage, remodeled bathroom with dual vanities, separate tub, walk in shower and separate water closet. The back yard is remarkable, private, spacious and comes fully-equipped with a large outdoor kitchen that has two restaurant-style refrigerators, a freezer, granite tile, an outdoor TV, and a hot tub. The long driveway goes through the property and has front and back automatic gates for privacy and security. The main roof was completely replaced 3 years ago while reusing the original mission clay tiles on top of the new roof. New old stock 1924 matching tiles where shipped from Ohio to replace any broken mission tiles. Both flat roof balconies were replaced in 2020-21. There is a separate oversized 2 vehicle garage with built shelves and a work area. The separate 484 sq.ft. garage apt has 1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, full kitchen and separate living area and currently rents around $1000/month. This home is across the street from another piece of history, "The Cottonland Castle", which is one of Chip and Joanna's most exciting ventures. There are wonderful elementary school options in Hillcrest PDS (Magnet), Private Montessori and up to 12th grade at Vangaurd. You are moments away from downtown, Brazos river, Magnolia Silos, Baylor University, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Be sure to watch the amazing VIDEO https://youtu.be/-_tuX94VAFU
