3500 Carla Drive

Welcome to 3500 Carla Drive, sited in the desirable East Austin pocket of Walnut Place. This charming residence offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of tranquility in a locale where listings are a rarity – probably because the VERY LOW TAX RATE (1.4%) keeps homeowners from moving! Spread across nearly a third acre, this updated home presents a nice blend of modern living and natural serenity. As you step inside, you're greeted by the warm ambiance of an open living space that includes a dining area overlooking a massive backyard through a wall of picture windows. Outside, an expansive backyard and its 330 square foot covered patio is a blank canvas for outdoor fun. Build a pool, design a garden, add a workshop… endless options to fit every taste. Featuring an array of modern updates to the interior finishes, you’ll also note several structural improvements (new roof in April, 2024, pumped and inspected septic tank -- in perfect condition, PVC drain lines, recent HVAC and water heater, and dual paned vinyl windows). Another bonus is the oversized garage (a massive 556 square foot space that offers TONS of storage). Walnut Place is known for its quiet, winding tree-lined streets, sprawling homesites, and close-knit community. Convenient access to local amenities, parks, shopping, and dining options, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
