Located on a winding street in the established East MLK subdivision Grant Park, this 1960 home takes its place among many neighboring examples of midcentury and ranch-style architecture in Austin. The house has been completely renovated and updated, but it retains its long, low lines, rows of windows, sliding glass doors, and other elements that contributed to the original feel and style.
The 1,597-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It looks like original living, dining, and kitchen areas have been opened up, though the resulting archways and furniture arrangement can keep them feeling like discrete zones. An updated formal dining room remains separate. There are wood floors throughout the house, with carpet in bedrooms and hard tile in bathrooms.
The renovated kitchen has a breakfast bar and natural stone counters.
The home’s bedrooms have ample windows, and both bathrooms have been updated with hard tile and modern cabinets and fixtures.
The fenced, wooded backyard features an open patio off the main living area.
