Old Austin -- Home of the Week



I've shown you quite a few lakefront homes in and around Austin, but many people prefer to live in Central Austin. That part of town has several neighborhoods full of charming, old homes.

The mls listing calls this home an example of "Regency Modern Architecture". It was built in 1937 and has been extensively and recently remodeled. At 4,224 square feet, the sale price on this home is $2,195,000. Wanna know what the annual taxes are? Just a cool $20,234.71.








I find the front facade a bit flat, but the inside has been wonderfully decorated. I love the contrast of dark and light. It's obvious this home has had some professional design attention.

Classic, but not my style, too stark. I prefer the rustic, anything goes decorating; lots of COLOR!
That one looks totally "un-Austin", they aren't doing their part to Keep Austin Wierd!
Just as well, I couldn't even afford the taxes, much less the house!

Yeah...seems a bit of a disconnect between the outside and inside.

Listen to me (rolling eyes)...shad-up already!

Hence, it was all about the biotech resume objectives.
The gels went through a trypsin digestion and then were analyzed by
a MALDI-TOF-TOF mass spectrometer, which
identified the proteins digested from the gels. R Bennett,

If you have a website, you can use Google Trends for your website traffic to increase as well.
Office goers and people who are travelling often do not get time to read news from the newspaper or watch it to get
good information they could subscribe for sports SMS alerts.
I want to mention a part of the Prime Law (Twelve Visions Party) which is part
of Neothink.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
