Beauty is More than Skin Deep on this Mid-Century Modern Charmer!
Love the vintage homes featured on blogs like Retro Renovation, with their wood cabinets and paneling and their gorgeous tile baths? Afraid of what is lurking in the walls and pipes? Step into a fairy tale in this lovingly restored and updated south Austin charmer.
Moxie is pleased to hold open this home on behalf of its designer-owner, who worked to maintain the features so many love about late 50’s homes, but did not skimp on updates.
Starting from “the ground” up, all electrical and plumbing was replaced or upgraded, including replacing existing electrical panel and placing one (emergency responder accessible) panel outside, a new water heater, recessed lighting, all new light fixtures inside and out (except a vintage fixture above kitchen sink), and the sun room received a new roof.
New thermally insulated windows and doors provide amazing curb appeal and energy efficiency, filling the home with light. They make the home easier to maintain.
The popcorn ceiling was removed, as were all asbestos tiles, laminate, and carpet. Replacing them is a beautiful polished concrete floor with a 1/8″ overlay. Easy clean and great for allergy sufferers.
The bathrooms and their beautiful vintage pink and blue tiles were restored, the tubs refinished, and the vintage NuTone ceiling heaters cleaned and safety tested.
The kitchen/dining is fully redone, with the original mahogany cabinets and paneling refinished. New old stock copper pulls were sourced to bring the right touch. Backsplash is gorgeous Jonathan Adler Formica. All energy efficient appliances, including the induction cooktop. European style washer/dryer combo in kitchen (but hookups for full sized washer/dryer in laundry room).
At 4810 Enchanted Lane, you get the best of both worlds: vintage and modern. And a gorgeous yard, with large trees, including a live oak, cedar elms, fig and mimosa. To underscore the magical feel of this home on a beautiful, quiet, tree-lined street close to downtown, shopping, dining, and major highways, a Pegasus weather vane beckons you to your new home.
