One need only to check out the graceful heritage oak that fronts this South Austin home to glean its historic and no doubt storied nature. A rare original in the Travis Heights neighborhood, the house was built in 1927.
Moreover, it’s closely connected to its historic neighborhood, being located only two blocks from South Congress, convenient to the Avenue but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle.
The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and measures 1,248 square feet. It has been refreshed and updated, but retains quite a few of its charming period features, including a fireplace, vintage window frames and doors, a clawfoot tub, and original trim and wooden flooring. There’s a trellised patio and two parking spaces in back, along with a fenced yard that looks like it has tons of potential for gardening, entertainment space, possibly a second housing unit, or whatever else your South-Austin-loving self can dream up.
