1403 Brandt, Austin, TX 78742

This classic beauty at 1403 Brandt rests among soaring cedar elm trees on a large, peaceful lot where a small creek flows in the backyard. The home was completed in 2011 and boasts a five star rating, the highest rating achievable through the Austin Energy Green Building program, with low maintenance features, including metal roofing, cement board siding, and treated timber porches and trim. Beautiful craftsmanship and attention to detail are the themes of this three bedroom, two bath home. This house brings the outdoors in with a 100 square foot front porch. The 200 square foot treehouse-like, screened back porch adds additional living space that is perfect for entertaining while overlooking the sloping lot with an organic garden nestled in next to the creek. The interior features nine foot ceilings with Hunter ceiling fans in each room, and a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with tile floors, custom cabinetry with porcelain tile backsplash and under cabinet lighting, as well as a commercial style rangehood . The 160 square foot bonus room above the garage and the walk-in storage under the back porch, are among the generous spaces that make the house live larger than its footprint. Tucked in a low-traffic pocket neighborhood just five miles from downtown Austin, the east side location has easy access to major roadways. Green features include: double hung, tilt-wash, high efficiency, clad wood, low-e windows; tankless water heater (endless hot water!); warm-tone, efficient lighting; low voc paints and finishes for improved indoor air quality; water-saving fixtures; a 14 SEER HVAC with electric heat pump (bills under $50/month summer and winter!); seven inch thick walls with total fill insulation (R-49 attic, R-21 walls, R-13 floor); super-quiet Panasonic bath fans; thermostat-controlled exhaust fan in the garage. The classic half round gutters can be easily adapted for rainwater collection, and the plumbing system has been designed for easy conversion to greywater reuse in the landscape.
