A wood-frame bungalow built in 1939, this Bouldin Creek home has been transformed into a sort of contemporary-cabin blend. The 1,563-square-foot home has been updated with skylights, marble tile, granite countertops, stainless appliances, new fixtures, a contemporary front door, insulated windows, and the like.
At the same time, features such as its welcoming front porch, rich wooden floors, and lush, native landscaping under mature trees help it retain the comfortable, casual feel South Austin is known for.
The house has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, along with an extended back deck and patio and a convenient location minutes from Barton Springs, Zilker Park, downtown, and the rest of South Austin.
