4902 Mendoza Drive

Nestled in a wooded native Austin, Texas landscape on top of a hill overlooking not just east and downtown Austin but the entire landscape south of MLK, a custom, owner built treasure awaits to provide you the best of urban and rural life in Central Texas. Experience it all on your tree lined balcony while watching a breathtaking sunset fall behind the ATX skyline. This is an unexpected find for either a homeowner, developer or investor who wants an opportunity no other place in East Austin can offer. This one of a kind property includes not just one, but two spacious lots, together measuring a total 0.4871 acres. The cozier lot carries a lovely house featuring 3 spacious bedrooms, an office in the main bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms finished, 1 full bathroom for you to complete, Hardi Board exterior and two stories of sunlit, open space living. This home is perfect for a family seeking a spacious and private residence in a peaceful neighborhood, all while being incredibly close to downtown. The adjacent lot is large enough to fulfill your most ambitious dreams, and potentially even more impressive views. With a SF-3 zoning on both lots and the active Item 126 HOME Initiative currently in the Austin City Council, there is immense potential for builders or developers, making the entire property a golden investment opportunity. Walk your kids to school (Ortega, .3 miles), the library (Willie Mae Kirk, .8 miles) or the playgrounds (Givens, .6 miles and Springdale, .5 miles). Bike to UT (3 miles), Boggy Creek Farm (1.5 miles), Mueller (2.5 miles), Springdale General (.8 miles), or Downtown (3.7 miles). Bus stops are a short 5 minute walk down the street. So is Red Bluff Nature Preserves. You'll have easy access to all the joy and beauty this city has to offer. Local restaurants and breweries, farmer's markets and coffee shops-- all at the heart of a rapidly developing social hub in East Austin. This property won't be on the market long, it is truly a rare find
