A midcentury home built in 1963 with a great Travis Heights location continues to drop its asking price. The most recent cut, in November, was $14,000, with a total reduction of almost $44,000 since it went on the market last May.
The 1,561-square-foot home is the former location of Top Hat Records’ recording studio, which worked with everyone from Jimmie Vaughan to Calexico (and has since moved on to Knoxville, Tenn.
Evidence of the original studio is abundant and well-staged, as are a few other original features, including (most likely) the bathroom tile and, of course, the classic, modern/ranch-style layout.
The house has a terraced backyard with patio, gardens, and putting green, as well as many updates. It was most recently a short-term rental, and the profession-quality recording space is intact.
