At Sentell Home Solutions, our focus is on the rehabilitation and renovation of classic Austin homes and the preservation of their neighborhood character and charm. We strive to provide a sense of the original structure, keeping intact its history and "culture" or "vibe". And we do this while still incorporating new functional and unique touches.
How to work with us: We're always happy to COLLABORATE with others on restoration and cultural design projects - whether as a land stakeholder, investor, or a trade partner. HIRE US - our specialties include Pier and Beam Foundations, Creative design services, City of Austin Utility work, Rooftop decks, Tree houses, and historic restoration projects. CONSULT with us - we love to visit old homes and share our insights and see what you have done or have in mind.
Houses from the 1920s on less than 1/2 acre of land, these are beauties (at least in their core). They would have been demolished by practically every other investor. We don't do that because we are passionate about restoring them to their original beauty and history.
3 Bedroom / 2.5 Bath
We first had our eye on this gorgeous classic about a year ago, and are super happy to have finally secured the deal. 901 was built in the 20s when it was an on demand property on East Avenue. Now it's adjacent to I-35, but we see the downtown view, history, and easy access location (to downtown, town lake, and east side) as a major positive.
3 Bedroom/2 Bath
Our first project was to transform this ramshackle structure which was about to demolish itself naturally. Even so, we'll incorporate it's charming porch and small lot amnesty into a front yard restoration of the 500 sq foot house joined to an 1100 sq foot extension in the back. It takes advantage of the large Oak courtyard and will have a 2nd floor rooftop deck with a view of downtown. Tastefully done with respect for the neighbors' houses and views.
5 BedRoom/4 Bath
My favorite house. Taking an "obvious teardown" to a 1930s restoration with some crazy unique qualities. Adding on a basement garage and 2 more levels with a rooftop deck - but keeping in mind the character of the neighborhood and a focus on the 2 beautiful heritage post oaks.
5 Bedroom / 4.5 Bath
The views and location make this 1950 remodel super special. Add in the general layout and feel of the property and its a house I would love to make a permanent residence for myself.
This one should definitely break some records for ADUs in Austin. It will have privacy, views, and features such as move-able walls, a relaxation pool, and 2 levels of rooftop decks with mind boggling views.
Just 2 blocks from Guerro's on South Congress, this house was in bad enough shape that nobody wanted to buy it (and way too small of a lot for the McMansion guys to move in on). Now it's a beautiful rental house with charm to spare, and more on the way.
This beauty was going to get demolished in 2009 before we acquired the "dump" and not only saved its old bones, but exposed all the 1920s longleaf pine floors and shiplap walls and ceilings. It was "falling down".... well, that's why you put in new pier and beam. This is one of our favorite houses in Austin. Check out more about this home here.
