This interesting renovation project, wherein a handful of small cottages on Poquito Street in East Austin have been reinvented as duplex condos (you can buy one side or both), is a novel approach to offering relatively affordable, and somewhat small, living in the central city.
Located in the Rosewood neighborhood of Central East Austin, this particular unit (one side of the duplex) measures 630 square feet. Built in 1950, the completely renovated cottage has been renovated in a contemporary style and includes vaulted ceilings, custom cabinets, stainlesss appliances including a refrigerator, range, and dishwasher, granite countertops, a vessel sink, new windows, new tile, recessed and lighting
Better yet, there’s a private yard with wooden fence and new landscaping, along with a reserved, off-street parking space. Although it’s possible you’d want to ditch your car, as the location is central to all the delights of East Austin as well as to downtown and public transportation.
