We’re focusing on small homes (and other things) for Micro Week, and this bungalow just off South Congress fits the bill for both square footage and cuteness. Built in 1939, the house is located in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood, a few blocks from the restaurants, services, and fun on the famed South Austin strip.
Built in 1939, it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as an air-conditioned office/studio made from a converted garage in the back. It also has retained some of its historic features, including wood floors, arched doorways, and one of those nifty wall niches for land lines.
The clapboard, wood-frame home measures 990 square feet and has been renovated with updated kitchen and bathroom. It has large windows that let in lots of light, while mature trees and other foliage maintain privacy. There’s a large ipe deck just off the kitchen and a nice-sized, private backyard that leads to the detached, converted garage. Its asking price has dropped twice, from the original $599,000, in the past month, so we’re assuming the seller is motivated.
