This French Place residence, originally a 1920s church in Hyde Park, was moved in 1940 and repurposed as a home. The home was rebuilt from the ground up in 2010 with a contemporary design concept for entertaining and displaying a personal art collection. The exterior two story building consists of a single angle metal roof with a blend of exterior materials including repurposed long leaf pine from the original church, smooth surface stucco and vertical metal siding, nested behind a large live oak tree.
Stepping into the home through a custom 8’ steel door, the mind transitions from the reverence of a previous church into a beautiful gallery environment with high ceilings, tall casement framed windows, and soft textured white walls. The downstairs contains the connected social spaces of living room, dining room and kitchen, all adorned by a beautiful floating staircase of Ipe wood, steel and glass.
The surrounding area is also filled with several amenities, including the Manor Road business district that boasts various restaurants, bars, and a theatre. You will never run out of options when it comes to dining or entertainment in this neighborhood. For outdoor enthusiasts, Patterson Park is a short walk away and offers numerous amenities such as ballparks, tennis courts, community gardens, seasonal pool, and more. The park provides an excellent opportunity for relaxation and recreation right in your backyard. Situated just 2 miles from downtown, and only a few short blocks to the University of Texas and St David’s Hospital, make this an ideal location for students and professionals alike.
1,950 sqft main home with 200 sqft detached office.
