Downtown Austin Living
Stylish condo combines urban living with historic downtown setting
A low-maintenance home in the heart of it all? Sign us up. This stunning condo located at the corner of Colorado and Eighth streets in downtown Austin offers convenient living in a luxurious setting.
The urban property is made for those who consider themselves “the city type.” With towering, exposed ceilings and terrazzo flooring, the home highlights metropolitan views and is within walking distance to Sixth Street, the Paramount Theatre, Republic Square Park, and the Capitol, among many other downtown shops, restaurants, and bars.
The stylish condo is compact yet comfortable, making the most of its 1,287 square feet. In addition to two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, the home has an open floor plan, combining the living and dining areas. Custom cabinetry is found in both bathrooms while built-in bookcases line the condo’s walls.
Unlike many of the residential buildings in downtown Austin, this condo was built in 1940 offering a lived-in, homey feel. Recently updated features include the stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and tile backsplash found in the kitchen as well as the high-end light fixtures in the home’s ceilings.
Housed within the Brown Building Lofts, the community’s amenities include a rooftop patio and fitness center to sweeten the deal. Unit J-6 at 710 Colorado St. is on the market with Guy Koret of Realty Austin for $515,000.
