From the street, this charming storybook home is unassuming, harkening back to the simple home designs that were popular in Texas throughout the 1920s and 1930s. However, a step inside quickly proves that this newly constructed home is the pinnacle of modern luxury. 

Built by luxury design and construction firm Spaller Glover, 2010 Kinney Ave. is impeccably designed and landscaped with a seamless mix of traditional and modern elegance. Located in the Zilker neighborhood, the property sits on about a quarter of an acre and boasts a 2,500-square-foot floor plan with a large backyard entertaining space.

The key attraction is the wide open floor plan, with plenty of natural lighting to better highlight the features of the contemporary cottage. The first floor flaunts peaked ceilings, gray granite countertops, and detailed woodwork throughout. The simplistic design of the home follows a modern approach, blending minimalist fixtures with light wood flooring and white cabinets.

The master suite, located on the first floor, contains a spacious walk-in closet with stunning white built-ins. The master bath boasts a walk-in shower, separate bathtub, and double vanity. The two other bedrooms are located on the second floor, attached to a serene, tree covered balcony that provides a spectacular view of the outdoor entertaining space and stone facade.

The home is listed at $1,075,000 with Chris Long of Gottesman Residential Real Estate. In addition to storybook living, it's conveniently located near restaurants and parks (think Patika Coffee and Wine Bar, Picnik, and Alamo Drafthouse). It's also a short walk to Zilker Elementary School, another perk for families.
