Landmarked 1902 Home on Historic Street Hits Market at $610,000

Charming house on storied East Austin thoroughfare a rare find

A three-bedroom, one-bathroom house that measures 1,308 square feet, this place could be loved just the way it is or could be a fixer-upper, depending on how you like your patinas.

Whatever the case, you'll find intact the full original configuration of windows, doors and roof form, pent eaves, decorative turned wood porch posts and pilasters, asymmetrical facade, and doghouse dormer. There are also original longleaf pine flooring throughout home.

The home is a city of Austin landmark, one of seven or so on its historic street. San Bernard has a rich history as the home to African-American professionals during Austin's segregated period. The area nearby is equally storied, once home to legendary blues and jazz clubs, and now coming back to life.
