This sweet house is on the charming Garden Street in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood, has lovely, mature landscaping, and is practically downtown, in a good way.
Built in 1927, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has been updated but retains quite a few of its original features, including (deep breath): high ceilings, transom windows, original brick stack in kitchen, beadboard ceilings, and period glass cabinet doors.
The 1,532-square-foot frame house has a metal roof and appears to have retained its original footprint, more or less, with a characteristic large, covered front porch (though concrete rather than the more typical wood) and large foyer.
Updates include new stainless kitchen appliances, custom kitchen cabinets, butcher block counters, and cypress closets.
