Old West Austin Home With Unusual Vintage Design Asks $1.55M

Remodeled 1925 house inspired by shingle style common to coastal areas stands out in central city

This Old West Austin home is of a type, or mix of types, not common in this part of the country. Built in 1925 and recently remodeled, it reads as Kennebunkport-aspirational: clad in shingles but not truly shingle style, stately but not formal, except perhaps viewed through a modern lens. A seaside retreat, perhaps, without a nearby sea.

It works in its Old Enfield, neighborhood, though. At 3,246 square feet, it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, plus space above the garage to finish out for a nanny. Or office. It has a nice flow among common spaces for entertaining as well as those fun elements you find in old houses, such as a butler's pantry.

It has buffed-up dark walnut floors downstairs, along with a new gourmet kitchen and lots of bathroom updates.
