Introducing a private, luxury loft in the heart of Austin’s South Congress shopping district. Featured in Dwell magazine, renowned Rhode : Partners modernized this 1939 Mission Revival-style church with stunning finishes, including a full Bertazzoni appliance package, natural white oak floors, and herringbone marble tile. Soaring 18-foot ceilings feel more like a palace than a condo, while cathedral windows and a raw limestone exterior speak to the home’s messianic past.
Modern conveniences begin upstairs with an impressive refrigerated wine bar, Bertazzoni 5-burner gas range, touch-less faucet, and natural stone counters. Professional interior design by Lauren Allyn Interiors enhances this remarkable floor plan, beginning with an office and half-bath upstairs. Descending underground, you discover two alluringly private bedroom suites. The oversized master offers a dual vanity, dual walk-in closets, motorized blackout shades, and a freestanding soaking tub. Both ensuite baths embrace a neutral color palette, allowing the cutting-edge design and finishes to speak for themselves.
Just a short walk downtown, the former St. Ignatius Church feels particularly suitable for South Congress, a district that is constantly reinventing itself. Creativity and inspiration flow freely with world-class festivals and parks at your doorstep, including SXSW, ACL, and Ladybird Lake. The welcoming J. Bouldin HOA offers community gardens, a Live Oak sanctuary, a private dog park, and a rooftop lounge with panoramic downtown and hill country views. The 2-car carport, keypad entry, security system, and extra storage create an ideal work-from-home environment or second home in the city.
