Historic Downtown Victorian Home on Market for an Undisclosed Price

1880 building can accommodate residences and offices

A gorgeous home constructed in 1880 and now part located in West Downtown is now on the market with price available upon request. The home has been meticulously restored over the past 10 years with care given to preserving the original architecture and feel. In 1970 the home was added to the National Register of Historic Places and stands as a true piece of Austin's rich history.

Constructed on the Sheehan Quarry site, the North Flats-Howson house is situated on the curve of San Antonio and Seventh streets. The Victorian architecture features natural limestone on the lower levels, handmade buff brick on the upper levels, and double galleries with scroll brackets and balusters. The home also offers several secondary entrances, which were likely used by servants and for deliveries.

The current owner purchased the property in 2006 as a personal residence, but the 6,490-square-foot building has accommodated law offices and several apartment residents in the past. The home has two bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
