As I promised yesterday, here is another project by Priscilla Glover and Ivan Spaller of Urban Nature Inc., thanks to Tammy, their realtor. This time it’s a Victorian home built in 1890 that was moved from Marlin, Texas to the heart of Austin – which explains why Tammy calls it “extreme gingerbread”. The entire home was restored and updated in just over a year, maintaining much of the classical architecture while adding modern touches. I’m completely smitten with the exterior. Who cares what the inside looks like – I’d be sold on it while pulling up out front. (See more photos here and check out more of their work here).
I like how they painted the porch ceilings light blue. Really well done! Thanks for sharing.
Love that porch! And the little outbuilding. Maybe one day…*sigh*
I am in love! What an amazing combination of traditional, modern and whimsical. Know I will be back again and again just to drool!
you have a lot of fans in Austin! i too, drive by this house frequently and dream of living there. The trim detail is outstanding! it makes me happy that you have posted a home from my home town.
Tastefully done! The outside makes you want to explore inside.
Absolutely stunning home!
The porch, the kitchen, the entryway, the simplicity of the bedroom. Makes my blood pressure do down just looking at the pictures.
I especially admire what they added to the third floor – that floor to ceiling bank of windows, tucked in under the peak. Innovative!
The black and white kitchen is awesome, Clinical and gothic
where can i go to see about this house?
What an incredible house, you rarely see ones like this in the UK sadly. They seem to let so much light in!
Love the contrast of the elegant outside with the kooky mix of periods inside…now it just needs some landscaping worthy of that delicious exterior…
