More On Bryker Woods Homes For Sale
Bryker Woods real estate offers a charming, throwback neighborhood in the Old West Austin Historical District in Central Austin. Recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, Bryker Woods is a family-oriented neighborhood that's known for its towering oak trees, storybook bungalows, and inviting front porches. The community spirit of Bryker Woods is evident, as its residents are committed to upkeeping the neighborhood's historic feel and natural beauty. Convenient to downtown and within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, and amenities, Bryker Woods offers the rare opportunity to live in a quiet, tight-knit community only minutes away from the action.
The vibrant neighborhood of Bryker Woods is made up of about 720 single-family homes. Bryker Woods homes for sale are an interesting mix of 20th century bungalows, elegant Colonial Revivals, and cottage-style homes. These homes range from two to five bedrooms and typically range between $600,000 and $2,000,000. The neighborhood is home to both older and younger families, as the proximity to downtown makes Bryker Woods appealing to people of all walks of life.
The majority of the neighborhood was developed in the late 1930s. The quintessential Bryker Woods property is a small bungalow with a charming front porch, well-landscaped front yard, tall oak trees, and a garage tucked behind the home. Many of these homes have since been remodeled, but there's a large emphasis placed on renovating and expanding rather than entirely new constructions.
In recent years, many homes have been upgraded to more expansive five bedroom luxury homes. These homes include desirable features such as:
- Gourmet kitchens with recessed lighting
- Open floor plans
- Crown molding and high ceilings
- Gleaming hardwood floors
- Wine closets
- Covered porches with outdoor living spaces and outdoor kitchens
- Guest houses
The expansive front yards and front porches lead to an unpretentious, inviting community where you know your neighbors. The lots are big enough for privacy, but small enough that you're not secluded from the tight community spirit.
