You can tell there is something special about 3400 Beartree as soon as you pull in the driveway. Actually it starts with the drive to the property, a gorgeous but quick 5 mile drive on City Park Road form RR 2222 passing along side the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve and Emma Long Park. It’s hard to believe this quiet cul-de-sac is only 25 minutes from downtown Austin.
The house is situated almost square in the middle of the 1 acre wooded lot. The front yard is mostly flat dotted with mature trees and native landscape offering plenty of room for family football game or epic Easter egg hunts. The backyard is an oasis of natural hill country landscape but fully fenced for the safety of pets and children. First and second level decks overlooking the back yard allow for enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets over the mature Oak trees.
The home is stone on all sides with a metal roof that will last forever. Originally built in 1982 and extensively remodeled in 2006, improvements include redesign and opening of kitchen with granite counter tops, new cabinets, and top of the line appliances. Hardwood floors were installed through out the first level, the half bath was updated and beautifully appointed, and the den was converted into and a guest suite with a separate entrance and full bathroom. 2006 also brought the addition of the front porch and new front doors which greatly bolster the curb appeal. An outdoor kitchen and patio dining area were also added. Very little went to waste in the remodel as the old kitchen cabinets were put to use and the laundry room and the original front doors were installed on the outbuilding.
The extremely functional floor paln boasts 3734 sq. ft. 5 bedroom, 4.5 baths. The first floor of the home features the gourmet kitchen open to one of the two living rooms, formal dining with pocket doors, and the guest suite perfect of visiting in-laws or kids home from college. The two living areas are separated by a 2 sided stone fire place. Floor to ceiling windows throughout flood the first level with natural light and blur the line between indoor and outdoor living.
As you take a left at the top of the stairs, you enter huge master suite with a ample closet space, double vanity, jetted tub, a separate steam shower, and direct access to the second floor patio. The third and forth bedrooms offer plenty of space and are adjoined by a Jack and Jill bathroom. The 5th bedroom also has direct access to the second floor patio and an adjacent full bath. The laundry room is also on the second floor, negating the need to haul laundry baskets up and down the stairs. All carpet has been replaced upstairs in favor of hand-scraped style flooring.
