600 Cliff - Reduced to $898,000! - Rare Offering in Zilker - MLS#3055435

This three-story Craftsman/Arts & Craft home, with a stellar layout and modern features like walk-in closets and large open rooms, was custom built in 1984 with '30s-era vintage styling. Only two families have lived in this home on one of the Zilker area's best streets, which features one of the biggest live oaks in the neighborhood, a heritage tree front and center of the front yard, with other big oaks all around the yard and neighboring property. This home and its neighbors have unique and valuable deed agreements intended to always preserve the park-like look of the front yards in this best section of Cliff Drive. Rare and special features not found in much of the Zilker area include no utility lines running through the front yard because they are all in the paved alley, and one of the nearest homes to Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, the hike and bike trail, Restaurant Row on Barton Springs Road, and Umlauf Sculpture Garden.

Other features include an attached two-car garage with plenty of storage and a hardwood-floor workshop with custom windows; over 60, mostly large, windows in the light and airy home; three floors featuring custom decks on 2nd and 3rd levels; a brand-new Timberline HD shingle roof; nice patio with a Jacuzzi spa behind a privacy fence; zoned HVAC; an extensive automatic irrigation system in the front yard, two side yards, and the greenhouse; attached greenhouse with access from the back yard and inside the home; lots of cabinets, task lighting and high-end appliances in the spacious custom kitchen; wired for gigabit internet; a mesquite-floored bedroom and stairway and extensive oak flooring elsewhere downstairs, bamboo floors in the master suite, and oak floors in the study adjacent and the flex room above the master suite; a high-end stainless steel pull down stairway leading to the flex room above the master bedroom; and a spiral staircase from 2nd floor deck to back patio.
