This East Austin home, located the MLK neighborhood just south of Springdale Road, faces ever-busier East 12th Street, it’s true. However, it’s on a fairly large lot, surrounded by trees, set back from the street, and generally has a lot going for it.
The compact home was built in 1963 and measures 864 square feet. It has three bedrooms and one bathroom. It has been remodeled in unpretentious but stylish fashion, with light wood floors—excepting the kitchen floors, which look like they could have been charred with the Japanes shou-sugi-ban technique—and cabinets, a large glass door in back, light-colored tile and fixtures in the bathroom, and white kitchen counters.
Light materials, windows, and mirrors help the home feel open and bright.
The house has wood floors throughout and a remodeled bathroom.
While it fronts a busy street, the back deck and yard provide refuge and greenery.
