Buy a century-old home in historic Swede Hill for $795K

1906 house has original features and an apartment

Furnished open dining/living room with kitchen on elevated level in background
1003 East 13th Street in Swede Hill
Via Redfin

Located in the tiny, historic Swede Hill neighborhood in Central East Austin across from the UT campus, this wooden frame home was built in 1906 but is laid out more like a modern split-level—with big, open areas with different levels separated by small sets of steps and nifty, pass-through built-in bookshelves.

The 2,404-square-foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three living areas, as well as an additional 469 square feet in the form of a furnished, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with kitchen and separate entrance.

There are hardwood floors throughout the home. The kitchen and master bathroom have been updated in period-appropriate style, and there are several vintage touches throughout the home that contribute to its character.

Located around the corner from Swede Hill Park, the home is on a large lot and has a big, screened-in porch and has a one-car garage (currently used for storage) and alley access; neighborhood street parking is restricted.
