Sumptuous finishes define this home. It's everything you need and nothing you don't. With its idyllic location in the Aldridge Place Historic District, this unique and rare Spanish Revival bungalow was designed and built in 1928 by distinguished architect Hugo Kuehne. Kuehne, founder of the University of Texas School of Architecture, who was responsible for such noted works as the Austin History Center, the Commodore Perry Hotel, and the Ritz Theater.
The sellers purchased the home in 2011 and undertook a very extensive restoration and remodel throughout 2012/2013. The project was designed by architect Ann Tucker of Studio A Group and built by Garland Turner of Woodeye Construction, with the goal of returning the home to its former glory. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much left to work with when the owners took possession in 2011; doors and mantles had been removed, windows were oddly placed, and bathrooms had been cheaply redone. Despite these setbacks, the home has always remained a neighborhood favorite. The current owners took a lot of time and thought to make decisions to recreate a timeless home that will live on for the next 100 years.
The extensive, 10 month remodel included all new electrical, plumbing, roof, HVAC ductwork and returns, major foundation and leveling work, subfloors, fully-insulated walls/ceilings, level 5 wall finish, custom millwork, kitchen, baths, lighting, steel doors, windows, fireplace and chimney, flooring, and built-ins.
The home is located in one of the most walkable parts of town. The University of Texas, Blanton Museum of Art, Central Market, Wheatsville Coop, great restaurants including Texas French Bread, El Patio, Via 313, Black’s BBQ, Hopfields, Thai Kitchen, Counter Cafe, Sip Pho all are within a few minutes walk. Beautiful Hemphill Park with its pecan tree covered paths is just out the door—perfect to meet neighbors on your daily strolls!
