Charming & beautifully updated bungalow in the heart of Allandale
The classic home at 5901 Woodview Avenue has been beautifully remodeled to reflect a modern aesthetic while still retaining the soul and charm of the 1950s style bungalows common to Austin’s popular Allandale neighborhood. It’s the perfect balance of timeless and sophisticated style.
With cheerful cottage colors and a welcoming front porch, this home beckons you inside.
Light and bright with large windows throughout out, this home’s character is apparent the moment you step through the front door. You are greeted by an impressive great room that includes both living and dining spaces, making it ideal for entertaining guests. The fireplace with its delicately carved wood mantel is the centerpiece of the formal living room, and the perfect place to curl up with a good book. Elegant silver and champagne light fixtures add a classic feel to the space, while the large picture window connects you to the outdoors.
Preparing meals is a joy in the adjacent kitchen.
Modernized to include all the amenities you expect, the kitchen is both beautiful and functional. Cream glazed cabinetry with raised panels and Viatera engineered-stone countertops create a neutral backdrop for a mix of glass-front, closed cabinets, and display shelves. There is plenty of space to showcase stemware, china, or treasured objects, or you can tuck things away in the corner cabinet with lazy susan or in the soft-close drawers. A built-in bar is great for meals on the go. Even better, the one car garage also opens into the kitchen making it easy to unload groceries and household items. Stainless steel appliances add sparkle to the room.
Just beyond the kitchen you’ll find a spacious second living area with a powder room. A connecting bonus room is perfect for a home office or play room. Beautifully refinished red oak wood floors provide a cohesive feel throughout the home.
In addition to the bonus room and powder room, this charming home has three full bedrooms and two full baths. The large front bedroom has radiant natural light, and the interior bedroom with a solar tube makes a great nursery, play room, media room, or home office.
The nearby hall bathroom is gorgeously remodeled in an on-trend grey and white color scheme. The white subway tile with marble accent tile in the bathtub is the perfect backdrop for the sophisticated grey cabinetry with marble counters, large scale hexagon floors, and coordinating grey mirror. It’s such a chic space!
Unlike many homes of this era, you’ll find plenty of closet space at 5901 Woodview. Not only does each of the secondary bedrooms have a full-size closet, but there are two full closets in the hall as well as a coat closet in the formal living area. And the roomy master bedroom actually has two closets, including a walk-in closet with built-in storage! Plus, the garage includes loft storage space as well.
The master bedroom is located at the back of the house for maximum privacy and has its own in-suite bathroom. In addition to a dedicated linen closet, there’s plenty of room for make-up and toiletries in the glazed cabinets and drawers. Two carved metallic champagne mirrors shine above the stone countertops so there’s no fighting for the mirror when it’s time to get ready. At the end of the day you can relax in the combination shower and jacuzzi tub and melt away any tension.
Situated on a large corner lot, the fenced backyard is screened with mature pear trees along one side, and rock-lined flower beds are prime for planting. A pecan tree provides additional shade so you can grill on the back patio, relax with a glass of wine, or thumb through your favorite magazine.
At approximately 1983 square feet, this gracious home includes:
- 3 bedrooms
- 2.5 bathrooms
- 2 living rooms
- 1 bonus room
Situated in the heart of Allandale, the Central Austin location of this home is hard to beat.
Lauded as the third best neighborhood in Austin by Austin Monthly magazine, Allandale is one of Austin’s finest Central neighborhoods.
Neighbors regularly stroll and bike in the neighborhood, and front-porch visits are common place. It’s also highly walkable. Indulge at Amy’s Ice Cream, Hey Cupcake or Lick, and work off the calories on the short walk home. Enjoy pizza at Buffalina Due or a burger at Phil’s Ice House. Margaritas and queso at Fonda San Miguel are within easy reach, as well as brunch at Epicerie , a beer at Billy’s, chicken at Fly Rite, and so much more. Only a 5 minute walk to Burnet Road, you can grab a few groceries from HEB and literally walk home.
There are also many activities to choose from. The nearby Northwest District Park includes an Olympic-size swimming pool with lap lanes and a diving board, playscape, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a pond. Community baseball fields are also within the neighborhood, along with Lamar Middle School -- an arts magnet -- and award-winning Gullet Elementary.
Mopac is less than a mile away, so it’s easy to make the 6 mile commute to downtown or venture north to the Arboretum or Domain.
