You could live in the former home of chef and restaurateur Lou Lambert.

The Castle Hill home, located at 1002 Baylor St., is just a few blocks from the original Whole Foods and BookPeople. With panoramic skyline views, indoor/outdoor living spaces, and a gut-renovated interior, the two-bedroom + two-bathroom home is listed for $1,650,000.

Welcoming custom stone steps greet you at the entrance, where there’s a Downtown-facing screened porch, which leads into the primary bedroom. Views of the city continue through the chef’s kitchen and living room, which both feature custom lighting, sleek fixtures, and millwork.

There’s more outdoor space where that came from — you’ll find a gazebo in the backyard — but don’t overlook indoor amenities like built-in closet and desk areas, high ceilings, and the primary bathroom’s soaking tub.

A darkened bedroom with a bed facing the skyline, a doorway to the screened porch, two windows on the south wall, and two leather chairs in the corner.

Whether you like to wake up with the sun or enjoy the night air before hitting the sack, the screened-in porch in just steps away from bed.
