Swell remodeled modern in East Austin asks $345K

1966 home gets excellent update

The listing for this beautifully redone midcentury modern home calls its style a bit "rustic," and it looks like it was redesigned to take advantage of that aspect, combining it with modern and even contemporary sensibilities.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is a rare find for its price range, as its East MLK neighborhood—a longstanding area of medium-sized, single-family homes built in the 1960s and 1970s—has become increasingly sought-after.

The vaulted, wooden ceiling in the living area, which echoes the lines of the front porch roof, is a compelling, centering feature to the home, which has been updated with painted wooden floors, crisp white kitchen cabinets and counters, and stainless appliances.

Plenty of the original feel of the era remains, though, and reproduction light fixtures and furniture make the most of its 1,572 square feet with a consistent, smoothly transitioning style throughout the home. It also has a sweet deck, fire-pit, wooded backdrop, and yard out back, which makes it almost irresistible.
