Small home in Central East Austin asks $350K

1920 fixer-upper with original features

A small, sort of Craftsman wood-frame home with front porch and small yard, house is beige/off-white
1403 Chicon Street
Keller Williams

This cute l’il bungalow on Chicon Street in Central East Austin is being marketed as an investor property, and there are some good reasons for that: Chicon is a busy street and getting busier all the time, as it’s a good way to cut through the ever-more-popular Eastside.

Still, we think this small home, built in 1920, could also be a fine place for an owner who prefers a modest-sized place, a modicum of street life, and a house with a bit of history to it. It also has a big backyard and is located on a row of similar-sized homes, so it fits the neighborhood scale.

The house measures 897 square feet and has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It looks like a bit of a fixer-upper, but it also has some great original and Craftsman-style elements, including wood floors, phone nook, built-in china cabinet, porch pillars, and window screens.
