We’re not sure if we love this home because of red, Pixie Stix porch pillars, the light-filled open plan (still dig ‘em, sorrynotsorry), or the fact that it’s on a quiet street around the corner from one of our favorite East Austin places, Oakwood Cemetery. Probably all of the above.
The 1,920-square-foot, two story new build has more to recommend it, though. WIth three bedrooms and two and a half baths designed in what looks like a great floor plan, it features custom kitchen cabinets, concrete and eucalyptus flooring, a huge master closet, a NEST thermostat, and a fancy, new-fangled security system.
There’s 400 square foot of outdoor hanging/entertaining area, as well, and its location near UT and downtown is hard to beat.
