717 W Annie

I look at a lot of houses every day so it's always refreshing to see something a little different. There are lots of thoughtful elements on this home, and while a few of the design choices are over the top for me most of them are spot on. The location smack dab in the middle of Bouldin Creek is about as good as it gets.

If you don't already know that East Riverside and Montopolis are the new east Austin (as far as investment goes) then you are already too late. This is a prime example of some of the gems that are over there. A few things on this one: yes, it needs updating. That's good because that means someone hasn't screwed it up yet. Besides that kitchen is still better than 90% of the spec/flipper kitchens. Second, yes $500k is a lot for east of I35, but let me ask you this where else can you get a 1/4 acre and a 2,500 sqft home within 5 minute of downtown, east Austin and South Congress for that price?

Design principle number one is K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid. Though the architecture on this one may err a bit on the simple side it's still so much better than those modern houses that over complicate everything with extra tiny windows and 4 different roof lines. (see the sadly defunkt @uglyaustinhouses for some prime examples)

It's always refreshing to see a spec build with good interior design. I love how they keep things simple with the tile choices and get creative with the lighting. This one also reminded me how much I love a walnut kitchen and a concrete floor. Such a timeless look.
