The Bergstrom is a Mueller Garden Home plan, built by David Weekley in Section V and beyond. It’s unusual in that it’s a three story homes – one of few in the Mueller neighborhood. The base plan is 1812 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths, though most people choose the third bedroom option.

The Bergstrom Garden Home at a glance:

  • Three story detached Garden Home
  • 1,812 square feet base size – sometimes expanded subject to lot
  • 2 or 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
  • 3rd floor bonus / game room / media room / retreat
  • Balcony and porch
  • Side yard
  • Double attached garage with alley access
  • 3 out of 5 stars in Austin Energy’s Green Building Program
  • Environments for Living (guaranteed heating and cooling bill for first 3 years!)

The bedrooms are on the second floor along with an open retreat. You can choose to enclose the retreat and make it into a third bedroom. The master bedroom and bathroom are toward the front of the house.

There is an option in the master bathroom to exclude the garden tub.  This allows for a larger walk-in shower and a larger double sink vanity. It also increases the size of the master closet. This is a nice option since there is a tub in the other upstairs bathroom.

If you continue up the stairs past the second floor you will reach the bonus room. The different elevations have a different window configuration at the end, and you can access the mechanical systems in the attic from this floor.

The first floor is very open with the kitchen, dining room and family room as one large space. The powder room is through the foyer across from the dining room.  You have access to the two car garage through the living room. There is typically no island in the kitchen, though I have seen expanded Bergstrom Garden Homes where the whole house is wider than standard and an island has been fitted.

Centerra have just released their plans for the Garden Court Homes in Mueller’s Section 7C2 on Zach Scott and Moreno streets, just down the street from the new John Gaines pool under construction. With only six for sale, such is the way of the market that we know one is already spoken for.

Here are some particulars of the three different styles of of Centerra’s new homes at Mueller.

Each is two story and detached and they are clustered around a common area with their own private outdoor spaces. This style of home hasn’t been built since Muskin and Saldana built the first two garden courts many years ago. Muskin are also building six garden homes here – each is around 2000 sqft, $625,000 and have a similar 3 bedroom 2.5 bathrooom layout.

The Piedmont Garden Court Home

This is the largest at 2737 square feet, with different outdoor living options – the porch, a patio to the side and an elevated balcony. With three bedrooms and a den upstairs, there is plenty of living space downstairs, with long sight lines and an open feel. Completed with a single garage abreast a car port, this home is listed at $749,990.

The Continental Garden Court Home

At 2037 square feet, this home is the only one of the new garden court homes with a double garage. It also has a balcony of the master bedroom, two other bedrooms and a utility desk space upstairs. These two homes are listed at $649,990.

The Braniff Garden Court Home

At $50,000 less than the Continental, this home is just 122 square foot smaller, but retains the common theme of three bedrooms upstairs and a balcony. What this home does have is that all important extra outdoor living space – a square patio to the side of the home. These two homes are listed at $599,990.

These homes are due to be ready by September per Centerra’s site. In my opinion this is quite optimistic for a new home style that has not been built in the neighborhood before.

If you’re interested in learning about these homes and comparing their ultimate resale value to one of the other new Mueller homes for sale, please get in touch and we’d be happy to talk you through it. We can also email you floor plans if you comment below. 512 215 4785.
