This property in South Austin Travis Heights neighborhood isn’t huge, but it packs a lot of charm into the space. There are two separate dwellings on the lot—technically at two different addresses—and both were built in 1935.

While primarily simple frame homes that have been remodeled with some good-looking contemporary amenities, the two houses do retain a few period features, most notably in the form of things like hardwood floors, exposed shiplap, crown molding, and arched doorways.

It looks like one of the houses has two stories, although its difficult to tell from the listing if part of that is an addition. There’s 1,743 square feet of interior space altogether, with four bedrooms and two bathrooms in all.

The listing notes that the homes are completely separate and are currently short-term rentals. Given their location—within easy striking distance of Town Lake, South Congress, downtown, Barton Springs, and Stacy Pool—that’s not surprising, but living in at least one of them full time seems like it would be awfully sweet as well.
