While it has been updated, this Bouldin Creek home retains the charm and feel—if not the price tag—of a classic South Austin cottage. It’s on the corner of South Third and Monroe streets, a straight shot by foot to South First and its increasingly varied offerings, and not far from lots of other nifty stuff.
The wood-frame home was built in 1939 and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It’s a two-story house, although the second story looks like a nicely finished-out attic that constitutes the second bedroom and bathroom. Its square footage is 1,150, and its features include recently refinished hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, lots of windows, and natural light.
The kitchen is open to the family room and features tile countertops and backsplash, custom cabinetry, stainless appliances, and a built-in wine rack.
Also sweet: It has a fenced, private back yard with a covered patio, koi pond, nicely done landscaping, a storage shed, and covered parking.
