The Ball-Perry House was built in 1903 upon an impressive corner lot in West Austin, now located within the Castle Hill Local Historic District. Its design exemplifies the late Queen Anne architectural style in massing, ornament, and detail. It was constructed of St. Louis pressed red brick with a rusticated limestone base and cut limestone window headers and sills. The wraparound porch features Ionic columns supporting a second story balcony. The steeply pitched roof is accented with deep carved wood brackets. This home has gone through several transformations over time, it’s brick painted white, the open balconies enclosed, and interior subdivisions up to many as 11 apartment units.
O’Connell Architecture is leading the complete restoration of this magnificent home to remove alterations and return it to a single-family residence. The masonry restored, expansive porches opened to the outside again, and charming roof details rebuilt. The interior will feature a new kitchen and many comfortable spaces for family living.
