Style and functionality are truly the pillars of 7111 Spurlock Dr. Built in 1967, this home in Austin’s Northwest Hills neighborhood underwent massive renovations from 2008 to 2009. What was once an unassuming 1960s-retro pad became a midcentury modern oasis — without losing any of its classic Austin charm.

Before the remodeling began, the home’s owners had a few simple goals in mind, according to listing agent Arlene Maze of Carol Dochen Realtors. “They were very purposeful and conscious in their design,” Maze says. “They wanted to recreate the home and put their mark on it, all while focusing on functionality. It was important that it still fit in nicely in the neighborhood.”

The results speak for themselves. With the removal of several walls and the addition of vaulted ceilings in the central living area, the home now enjoys an open, spacious feel with plenty of natural light. An open chef’s kitchen with gleaming quartz countertops and custom Honea cabinetry is any home cook’s dream, and we particularly adore the lovely private zen garden and stylish spa-like bath in the remodeled master suite.

In addition, the home’s plumbing was completely redesigned and modernized, and custom flourishes were added in the form of walnut cabinetry and chic tiling throughout the space. In order to keep the home’s neighborly, local feel, the house’s number artwork was designed by Austin artist Briks Love You, and the front yard’s majestic heritage oaks are kept watered by a specially-designed French drain system.

Winner of the Best Remodel Award by the NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes and Home magazine’s pick for Best Midcentury Ranch Remodel, 7111 Spurlock Dr. is an Austin dream home. So dreamy, in fact, that the three-bed, two-and-a-half bath home, listed at $998,000, is already under contract.
