This home in Central Austin has been used in various commercials since it was built in 1960. (Compass)

Located on a rare half-acre lot in Central Austin, 3103 Perry Lane is officially on the market for only the second time since it was built in 1960.

Grounded in the Highland Park West neighborhood, this home has been the site of national commercials from high-profile brands like Amazon, Home Depot, Academy, Dicks Sporting Goods and the NHL.

You can live in this historical home, which has been renovated to preserve its original character, in one of Austin's most sought-after neighborhoods for $3.5 million.

With five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms spread out over 6,154 square feet, this gem embodies the Hill Country from the outside and inside. Starting with a sprawling flat lot with native plants and knotty trees, the house is welcoming with a large covered porch for enjoying those late summer nights.

Inside, the home opens up on the top floor to its large formal living space, complete with a fireplace set in Tennessee stone and sliding doors that lead to one of the outdoor patios.

The chef's kitchen is just nearby with access to outdoor dining, complete with luxury appliances: a Wolf range, wine fridge, Subzero fridge and freezer combo, double dishwashers, double ovens, double sinks and a cozy breakfast nook. The laundry room is right next door with another fridge and utility sink.

Located with two other bedrooms and an office space on the main level, the master suite has wide windows so you can wake up with natural lighting, but the bathroom is a real treasure. Double sinks give way to a spa-style bathtub or a glass shower, your pick.

Heading downstairs, guests will be met with the rest of the oversized bedrooms and another living space as well as possibly the home's most distinctive features: an indoor pool. The pool room, surrounded by grass and pastel blue tile work on the walls, opens up to the backyard, firepit and ipe wood furniture through a glass garage door.

And to complete the home, you'll rest easy having a safe room complete with a vintage safe door to access it.
