1606 Kenwood is an eclectic and charming 1940’s Travis Heights bungalow that has been lovingly restored and expanded while taking attentive care and attention to detail to maintain the architectural character of the original home. The two bed two bath main home was fully renovated in 2016 and included a full renovation of the existing bath and an addition of a second master bath. Walls were opened with new sets of French doors and windows that open onto a courtyard that were designed to match the original divided light windows in the home. An eclectic mix of hand painted tiles, original hardwood flooring, antique chest vanities, custom lighting and wallpaper meld seamlessly with modern conveniences. The kitchen features a gas range, breakfast bar and ample natural light. Electrical and plumbing have been updated throughout the home, and a new roof was re-framed and installed during the renovation.
A guest casita was added to the back of the lot with a bedroom and en-suite bath, walk-in shower, skylight and walk-in closet. The two structures are connected by a screened porch painted in a deep jewel tone blue that serves as an extension of the living spaces and is anchored by an antique chandelier that was shipped over from France and a woodburning stove. The porch spills out onto more covered patios, a private courtyard off the master and the manicured garden beyond. The garden is anchored by a massive heritage Live Oak that shades the yard and outdoor entertaining spaces.
Enjoy the best of Austin at your doorstep with the South Congress retail district, the Continental Club, Guero’s, Perla’s and the new Music Lane development within biking distance. Lady Bird Lake and the Town Lake Trail are a stone’s throw from the property, as is downtown Austin, Auditorium Shores and Zilker Park. Welcome to the heart of Austin.
