The exterior of this Central East Austin Craftsman probably looks more or less the same as it did in 1928, when original owner E.H. Carrington became "the first African-American in Austin to sign a deed for his own property,” according to the listing (which uses the Texas State Historical Association as its source.

Inside, however, it has received a quality remodel that incorporates original features with contemporary style. At a fairly roomy 1,262 square feet, the home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It features 15-foot ceilings, original wood floors, and exposed shiplap walls, opened up in the currently preferred style and incorporated with new amenities.

The master bedroom features a walk-in closet, antique vanity, oversized shower, and clawfoot tub with an ipe deck. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, some classic subway tile, and an exposed brick column (presumably a former). The backyard is fenced and shaded by a heritage oak.
