Homes in the sought-after Brykerwoods neighborhood in Old West Austin don’t come up for sale often, but that’s not the only reason to consider snapping up this midcentury cutie.
In addition to the fact that it sits on a bluff backing to the Shoal Creek greenbelt, just a block from Brykerwooods Elementary School (as well as being within walking distance to neighborhood restaurants, shops, and boutiques), it has a sweet pool surrounded by mature xeriscaping and accompanied by an outdoor grill/kitchen and big patio for cabana-themed partying (or just regular parties, one supposes).
Built in 1951, the house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and measures 1,924 square feet. There are formal living and dining rooms as a well as a forward-thinking breakfast bar.
The home also has the big, open interiors and some other original features from its era, including hardwood floors, a stacked limestone fireplace, and some tile and paneling here and there.
