A stunning one-of-a-kind Rosedale home with rich history! Known as the “Muston-Dorchester House” for its original owners, this renovated and expanded 2-bed, 2-bath bungalow was built in 1929 and dazzles throughout with its incredible charm. Inside, the property features beautiful original oak flooring, built-in floor-to-ceiling mahogany-plywood bookshelves in the living room, a striking grand flagstone fireplace, and 6 light-filled French doors in the family room that open onto a new cedar deck in the backyard.
The open kitchen is well-equipped for cooking and entertaining with a granite countertop kitchen island, all-new kitchen appliances, and 29 built-in drawers and 34 built-in cabinets for ample storage space. The main bedroom’s en-suite bathroom has a marble vanity top and a walk-in shower plus a Kohler Tea-for-Two bathtub. The second bedroom includes custom floor-to-ceiling drapes and an adjacent bathroom with a pedestal sink and shower in the original and quaint claw-foot bathtub.
Other notable property highlights include a desirable screened-in front porch with ceiling fans, large utility and laundry room with built-in floor-to-ceiling shelves, and a large storage closet. Surrounded by natural beauty, the front yard is nicely landscaped with an array of native plants and there’s a unique side-yard walkway with rippled-limestone stepping stones that are framed by Yaupon Holly and Mexican Persimmon bushes. The backyard is shaded by two gorgeous 85+ year-old pecan trees and is enclosed by an 8-foot stone wall for amazing privacy.
A fantastic location, the home is near many great local Rosedale hotspots including The Draught House Pub & Brewery and popular Ramsey Park, the recently renovated 2-square-block city park with amazing public amenities. This home is a must-see for those looking to own a special historic property in one of Austin’s oldest and beloved neighborhoods!
