Ready to visit some homes with me? Buckle up and let's go...
Last week's property tour started in a townhome in this quiet neighborhood.
I'm not sure if this stained glass goes with the property, but I love the idea and the effect.
But then, I have a weak spot for stained glass.
The next house was an older home that had been beautifully updated. I didn't get any good photos of the inside, but it had a lot of great details while retaining that vintage feel.
I loved the location of the next house more than anything...an older, upscale neighborhood in West Austin not too far from Mount Bonnell. The home had been given an extensive update, but I didn't get many photos...
The next home was my favorite of the tour. It was an older ranch-style on the northwest side of Austin, with a huge front yard and gorgeous backyard.
What I loved most about it, though, were these custom touches...the glass block shower...
...and all of these storage cabinets in the long hallway. I love cubbies and closets and cabinets.
But the room below, which adjoined a large open kitchen, was my favorite part of the house.
When I was little, I spent hours sketching floorplans just for fun. More often than not, I included a sunken livingroom.
With this wall of books, fireplace, and low railing, this room made me feel I had stepped into one of my own designs!
These next homes weren't on the property tour. They just caught my eye while driving through Hyde Park one day.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! Be sure to join me next week!
