Quirky Bouldin Creek 1950s remodel asks $799K

South Austin home retains fun period elements with central-city convenience

This fun and funky South Austin cottage was built in 1950 and extensively redesigned/remodeled in 2006. The 1,850-square-foot, one-story home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

We especially like the space-age front entrance design. It has original and reclaimed wood floors in main areas, with concrete floors in kitchen, and is clad in limestone masonry. It also has plenty of white oak built-ins for extra storage. In addition, the home has a tankless water heater, deep roof overhangs, and mature trees for shade.

It also has a private yard and climate-controlled back porch for living, dining or studio year-round, and there’s also a nifty, diner-type breakfast booth in the kitchen.

Located on a quiet street in the classic central-city Bouldin Creek neighborhood, it has lots of natural light and drought-tolerant landscaping. It’s convenient to Auditorium Shores, the Long Center, and downtown, as well as the nifty happenings of South First and South Lamar.
