Featured Property:

A Needed Facelift for a Longtime Family Home
2202 Indian Trail
Austin, TX 78703


This coastal craftsman farmhouse previously belonged to the grandparents of one of the homeowners. The family of four loved the space and wanted to add to it. But with so many building restrictions in Tarrytown, the homeowners faced the challenges of maximizing the allowed increase in square footage while also creating their dream home. They also wanted to make sure the structure still blended into its surroundings, as if it had always been there.

The homeowners needed help with a vision and relied on the expertise of an architect and Premier Partners. An open living area was a must for the family so the project included a massive single-slab island in the kitchen to serve as a “command center” for the home. The renovation also maximized storage space with many walk-in closets, linen closets and places to keep the home uncluttered.

One variable important to the owners was having separation between the master bedroom and the other bedrooms. This was achieved by configuring the master bedroom downstairs and all of the other bedrooms in the newly added upstairs. In an effort to efficiently utilize space and allow for a true mudroom from the garage, the laundry room also moved upstairs. In the process of the remodel and addition, the homeowners donated all of the unused materials from the original structure to Habitat for Humanity.

The result of the project is a beautiful home for the family to enjoy for many more generations.
