Proud as a Peacock

Friday, September 6th, 2013

They say that birds of a feather fly together, and with this new construction duplex (called Peacock Duplex by architect Nick Mehl) we definitely found success by being of like mind and spirit. Built from the ground up at the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012, we actually started this project by hauling away the pre-existing home to make way for a spectacular view of downtown Austin. Each side of this modern duplex is 2,000 sq. feet and is a great example of what happens when materials, design, know-how, and hard work all come together.

The units feature a mix of oak and concrete stained floors, marble countertops and a kitchen accented by granite and onyx, custom cabinets, and contemporary floating stairs with iron rails.  Double-sided fireplaces make the transition to outdoor living comfortable even in the coldest months. Screened and spacious porches tastefully extend the livable space, which we carefully waterproofed, stained, and polished. On the exterior, we chose cut limestone and for an added touch, we went with stucco and Douglas Fir for exterior accents.

The result is a comfortable, roomy, and high-design set of homes that we would proudly live in—as we would each of our projects. Peacock Duplex is proof that high-end results don’t have to cost a fortune. With the right planning and the right people, you can have a showcase quality home without breaking the bank.
