Description

A chance to own history like this doesnt come along very often. Constructed in 1889 for L.W. Culver, the Brava House was one of the very first Victorian homes built in Austin. This magnificent beauty is tucked away on a large lot, surrounded by mature trees, and located directly in the heart of town. Just take a stroll through the community to visit local restaurants, neighborhood shops, art galleries, parks, and the vibrant nightlife in Downtown Austin, and youll know theres no better place to be. A beautiful covered front porch welcomes you inside the main residence boasting stunning architectural design elements from gorgeous wood flooring to intricate wood-cased windows, skylights, and multiple wood-burning fireplaces. Constructed over two levels, the main home incorporates 5 bedrooms with whimsical names such as Garbo, Fitzgerald, Van Gogh, Monroe and Casablanca. A living area, a full kitchen, and 5 bathrooms (several with clawfoot tubs) stay consistent in preserving the original vintage charm. Constructed in 2008, the back building hosts the main kitchen, a communal dining and living area, and an office and additional living quarters. The backyard is a haven of relaxation with an expansive trex composite deck with a built-in bench where you can sit and enjoy the views of the garden and the historic, tree-filled Old West Austin neighborhood. The Brava House grounds are meticulously kept with lush greenery creating both a private and serene retreat all around the grounds. There is ample space for guest parking with alley access, a cowboy pool to enjoy on hot summer days, and a large storage shed. The Brava House is currently owned and operated as a boutique bed and breakfast, and its possibilities are endless! This is a RARE opportunity to plant roots in this historic community. P&L and additional information available upon request.
