Imagine waking up to stunning skyline views before taking a nice stroll to brunch at one of South Congress' many lavish restaurants—that's the reality for tenants at the St. Cecilia Residences.

Just off the new social strip Music Lane, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom bespoke condominium at St. Cecilia Residences just hit the market for a listing price of $2,200,000 and will put you right in the middle of one of Austin's most famous neighborhoods. Built in 2021 as part of the Hotel Magdalena and St. Cecilia Hotel, the condo is a healthy 1,890 square feet.

On the second floor, the condo faces north for picturesque Downtown Austin views without the pesky glare of the sun in your eyes. You'll enter the dwelling through a private elevator, where you will exit at the main foyer to dark millwork paneling and black accents on crisp white walls.

The dark cabinetry continues into the open-plan kitchen and living area—with tile to match—and the rooms are full of natural light from the generous window space. When walking into the kitchen, you'll notice the Miele appliances, Taj Mahal quartzite countertops, view from the sink and a kitchen island perfect to be used either as a bar or prep space.

The living room leads right into a spacious 520-square-foot terrace that is fit either for your morning coffee or entertaining guests in the moonlight. Back inside, follow the stained European walnut flooring to the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom when you're ready to turn in for the night.

Floor-to-ceiling Cle penny tiles adorn the bathroom, which hold true to the theme of black accents. His and hers sinks sit across from the Lavaca soaking tub, which is finished with the same quartzite from the kitchen. The gem of this bathroom is the glass walk-in shower, which immediately draws the eye.

Tenants are also given private memberships to inclusive amenities at Hotel Magdalena and St. Cecilia Hotel, including the pool, concierge and valet services.

Located at 110 Academy Dr, Unit 21, the apartment is listed by Douglas Elliman licensed associates Katherine Stinson, Stuart Watkins, and Kris Vermelis.
