Reservoir Heights Austin
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, Austin was experiencing the rapid development of homes in North Central Austin and other outlying areas of the city. Many of these 1-story modest bungalow-style homes had pier and beam construction which has some advantages over today’s concrete slab foundations. These simple, functional homes were built up above the ground level by sinking posts below the surface to rest on stone. Many homes built today have slab foundations that are cost-efficient but don’t offer some of the benefits or livability of pier and beam or post and beam construction.
Buyers searching in North Central Austin find many pier and beam foundation homes in neighborhoods such as Brentwood, an increasingly popular community due to location and the eclectic mix of home styles and sizes. Those considering Reservoir Heights homes for sale, a section within Brentwood, will find most owners have upgraded or remodeled their bungalow with the latest features in home design. While averaging only around 1,100 square feet, many of these homes retain their original charm yet have interiors with wood and tile flooring, chef-style kitchens, spa-like baths and beautiful outdoor living areas. Infill construction has added more modern homes with eco-friendly features that meet the demands of today’s homebuyers.
Reservoir Heights is an excellent example of a neighborhood’s value determined by location and ambiance over merely square footage and age of the property. In Austin, a hip and happening area trump many of the home features and amenities that buyers flock to find in new suburban construction. For the home buyer who values the ability to personalize their home, Reservoir Heights is worth putting on their list.
