1948 home with original details asks $548K

Remodeled vintage in prime location

This two-story home was built in 1948, a bit after the most popular wave of the Craftsman style, but it has several features that reference that period. It has been renovated in a way that preserves vintage window and wall trim, doors, arched doorways, windows, and a signature central staircase with custom ironwork.

The house is located on a deep lot across the street from the city’s historic Oakwood Cemetery in Central East Austin, which makes development encroaching from the west, at least, unlikely. It has two stories, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms, with city views from the second floor, and measures 1,789 square feet.

Updates include energy-efficient features, a master suite with a Jacuzzi and separate shower, custom kitchen, and vaulted ceilings. Floors are wood, granite, travertine, and slate. It’s located on a deep, large lot that boasts a lovely yard but could also handle expansion of the house or an accessory dwelling unit.
