Built in 1939, this home in South Austin’s Zilker neighborhood has retained the unique, casual essence of the original, particularly with its bright-green paint and leafy lot shaded by big trees.
The inside of the 1,545 square feet home has been remodeled in a contemporary vein, with a a bright, open floor plan, two living areas, two dining areas, two bedrooms, and a flex space.
The home also has crown molding and hardwood or slate floors throughout. The remodel includes custom fixtures, stainless steel appliances, designer paint, and the installation of low-maintenance xeriscaping, as well as what looks like the addition of a number of large windows.
The home is located off South Lamar Boulevard, not far from the Broken Spoke, so it’s convenient to lots of shopping and entertainment in the area; at the same time, it’s tucked away on a side street among houses of similar size and character, just far enough from hustle and bustle.
