The Home at 7413 Thomas Springs Road 7413 Thomas Springs Rd

Fantastic opportunity to enjoy the feel of country living with all the conveniences of the big city just a short distance away! This home, situated on over 2-1/2 acres just West of Austin, was first built in 1940. Additions have been made over the years to increase living space and amenities. You’ll find some of the charm of the original 2 bedroom, 1 bath home in the welcoming covered front porch that stretches the length of the home! Inside, on those chilly nights, you’ll enjoy the warmth from the old Franklin-styled stove featured in the living room. In the front bedroom, you’ll  find the old wood flooring and the look of a bedroom from yesteryear.  Fortunately, when it comes to the first level bathroom & kitchen, modern is the word! The spacious kitchen has recent, updated cabinets, counters & appliances, with a 5-burner glass topped stove and built-in microwave. Off the kitchen and dining area is a flex space that was probably once a screened porch but now is an integral part of the first floor with one wall fitted with built-in cabinet & storage drawers. The perfect location for a craft room, play room or second living. You’ll find the laundry room next with ample space for washer, dryer and more storage. At the opposite end of the flex space is a stairway that will take you to the second level which can be used as additional living quarters or secured and used as a separate apartment, providing rental income!  There is also an outdoor stairway to the second level that can be used for a private entrance. Upstairs you’ll find space for a living room, bedroom, a full bath and a small kitchen complete with stove and refrigerator.

The Great Outdoors at 7413 Thomas Springs Road 7413 Thomas Springs Rd

I’ve already told you about the wonderful, long front porch just waiting for a couple rockers or maybe a glider, and then, someone to have a rest there.  What a perfect spot for watching birds and enjoying the well established native plants which add a beautiful snap of color on your approach to the home from the long drive in from the road. It is almost impossible to see the house from the road, not only because of the set-back but also because of all the trees. Around to the back of the house, you’ll find a marvelous huge deck with access from the “flex” room. Wrap around steps cascade down from the deck to the paving stone ground level patio area.  Lots of space for outdoor entertaining and family gatherings!  If a little height is your preference, another large deck is accessible from the upper level living area. Both decks offer a wonderful view of the spacious backyard area, covered with trees yet open areas available for gardening, too! Watch this area for all kinds of wildlife!
