This Lovely 1920 Home in Central Austin Can Be a Canvas for Your Design Dreams

Two-story brick house in need of some updating asks $1.195M

A buyer could go a lot of ways with this stately 2,866-square-foot home. Some of the rooms are a riot of wallpaper patterns, while others are stripped down to gorgeous wood walls, floors, ceilings, and built ins. Caught in renovation limbo, it is nevertheless structurally gorgeous and looks to be in good condition.

New on the market, the red-brick, two-story house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There are oak and pine hardwoods throughout, along with woodwork by acclaimed Austin craftsman Bill Breaux, as well as a living-room fireplace and other interesting period details.

Outdoors is a big, covered front porch, port corchere, and two-car garage, surrounded by a verdant half-acre that backs to neighborhood favorite Liberty Street.

The listing notes that architectural drawings for finishing out the renovation—which looks like it kept the original floor plan intact—are included in the sale. Whatever happens, those all-pink fixtures in that one bathroom need to stay right where they are.
