Built in 1898, the historic Mansard style Brass-Goddard house is truly a rare find in Austin, Texas. Thoughtfully renovated by Paul Clayton of Clayton & Little Architects and Fern Santini of Abode Interior Designers to maintain its charm and elegance, this three bedroom, 3.5 bath, three-story home is located just moments from downtown in the heart of Clarksville.
Its large, graceful front porch, native limestone exterior, and double lot give this home timeless curb appeal, and the attention to detail inside this special home is unparalleled. From the custom lighting fixtures on the grand staircase, to the one-of-a-kind Parisian chandelier in the dining room, to the backyard patio with built-in grill, this designated Austin landmark is so much more than a house — it is a treasure.
The bottom floor houses the morning room, living room, and family room which opens to the fully remodeled yet classically charming modern kitchen and screened-in porch with views of the pool and large mosaic tiled spa. Each room includes classic features such as renovated antique fireplaces, 10” deep window casings, and original wood floors.
The breezeway, with custom designed screen doors by local artist Susan Wallace, connects to a new edition which contains a walk-in pantry, large laundry room, utility room, and home office center with built-in desks and generous storage.
The second floor is home to a luxurious master suite, which includes two large separate closets, a spacious ensuited bathroom with freestanding tub, multiple vanity areas, an exercise nook, hidden additional washer and dryer, and honed Carrara marble throughout. The master bedroom has its original antique fireplace and an adjacent sitting room, which could easily serve as a second bedroom for the second floor. On the third floor, there is a charming, ensuited guest room, complete with shiplap and gabled ceilings. Across the hall, there is an additional living space with access to the Belvedere deck with widow’s walk and views of downtown.
This historic home is listed for $4.95 million with Moreland Properties and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
