Avenue B Development, LLC

Austin, Texas

2017 Region 5 South Central CotY Award Winner, Residential Historical Renovation/ Restoration $250,000 and Over

The owner wanted to convert this 2,325 square foot 1920 Dutch Colonial back into a single family home and modernize the interior while staying true to the home’s historic charm. Previously, it was turned into a duplex. The home was restored in way that blends the modern with the traditional, while also bringing in the owner’s New Orleans roots. Features include a reclaimed wood fireplace mantle, original refinished wood floors, shiplap details, salvaged light features, soapstone counters, a built-in breakfast nook and a clawfoot tub in the master bedroom. The end result is a warm, sunny, inviting space that draws people in to gather, cook, eat and enjoy each other’s company.
