Virtual time capsule in Brentwood asks $409K

1959 home with original details on large lot

Brentwood is one of those north central neighborhoods—they include Rosedale, Crestview, and Allandale as well—that started as suburbs and are now considered central, with the prices and agitation for increased density attached.

To create Brentwood, Austin annexed a former cotton farm in the 1950s, and the era of its birth is evident in a number of houses in the area, including this one, which is close to a time capsule (albeit a regularly used and dusted one).

Located on a .26-acre lot, the home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and measures 1,564 square feet. It was built in 1959 and has kept much of its era’s style, as well as original features including the stove, oven, and countertops. It looks like there are original built-ins in other parts of the house, as well as some funky, arched doorways and pass-throughs. The carport has been enclosed carport to create an artist studio and office.

And, if you are also in the "high density" camp—if only to increase income from the property—it’s zoned in a way that will allow at least one other residence.
