Any home on the market for less than $1 million in the historic Pemberton Heights section of Old West Austin—even one with this house’s relative modest size of 1,840 square feet—is rare indeed. That this one is made of limestone and has been in the same family since it was built in 1936 makes it even more of a find.
The house was remodeled in 2009 and 2010, but its vintage is still evident inside, which retains its wood floors, window frames, and crown molding. According to the listing, it also has its original crystal door knobs and skeleton keys, as well as "original docs dating back to [the] Rep[ublic] of Texas" (which was done by 1846, so we’re not sure what that’s about).
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is on a lot that measures almost a quarter of an acre and has generous porches in front and back, as well as a large backyard shaded by mature trees.
