If these walls could talk! This premier piece of Austin history has now been lovingly restored and elevated to its original grandeur with no previous significant changes or enhancements since 1917. One of Austin’s finest historical homes, the Herblin-Shoe House CA. 1899-1900, enjoys urban living at its best with an incredible walkability score of 85! An amazing project with tremendous attention to historical detail returning this property to its original glory, resulted in a 3BR/3.5BA/4LIV design with the latest systems and amenities. With views of the State Capitol and downtown, this Austin jewel is the result of a 4.5 year restoration project that has been executed meticulously by the present owners under the direction of noted historic interior restoration experts. The primary home was enlarged slightly and now readily accommodates today’s living and entertaining needs with a state-of-the-art kitchen designed for entertaining, amazing master suite, incredible closets, and much more. The original 1900 cook’s quarters was preserved on the site and a new carriage house was built on the property to contain 3 large bays and a lovely 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 living area guest apartment up above. Generous and inviting wrap-a-round porches provide lovely outdoor living and entertaining areas and overlook a sprawling .25 acre lot with perimeter fence and gated motor court and drive way.
