An Eastside home built in 1930, this bungalow is in a sweet location; the tiny Swede Hill neighborhood, with its pastoral pocket park, abundance of modest older homes, and towering tree canopy, is like a small town—if that town were basically in downtown Austin.
The 994-square-foot, frame home has two bedrooms and one bathroom on lot that, according to the listing, has room for an addition.
It’s pretty cute as is, though (which is how it’s being sold—window units in photos likely indicate a lack of central air conditioning and heat, among other possible isseus), with wood floors, shiplap walls, period trim and baseboards, and other faves of old-home aficionados.
It has a fully fenced yard, though only street parking, and a washer/dryer unit. For the price, and with its considerable charm, it could be the perfect small home for someone, just as it is.
