Waterfront Lake Condo
A small lakefront condominium in heart of Horseshoe Bay resort deep in the Texas Hill Country. This 3rd floor unit has a great view and a ton of usable, efficient space for it’s 1000 square foot size. Vaulted ceilings, a loft above the kitchen and master / guest room joined by a Jack / Jill bathroom. Layout makes it a perfect space for 4 adults and can easily expand to 6.
Originally purchased with no updates or remodel since being built in 1979 containing all the things you would expect – popcorn ceilings, dated / worn carpet, outdated bathrooms, lighting and fixtures. We knew there was a ton of potential to make this a ‘cabin’ like feel and casual lake space for friends and family. Updated throughout, we opened up the kitchen, added open shelving (instead of cabinets), classic subway tile, new appliances and granite counter-tops. Removing the pantry gave us more usable space in the kitchen and you really didn’t need a pantry for a weekend retreat.
We changed the floors to vinyl wood flooring (think water from the lake and easy cleanup) and slate in the bathrooms. Changed the doors to louvered pine, updated paint and hardware. The best part of the remodel was removing a large spiral staircase to the loft and adding a simple loft ladder for easy access and more living room space. We added two fun bunk – like twin beds in the loft to finish it out. We have a great friend who has a barn wood lumber yard, and added that to the ceiling and reclaimed tin for the loft ceiling. It really made the condo fun and cozy – and a great escape from the work week.
Remodel took us 4 months (lake time) and we sold this property in August ’17.
