Adorable Cherrywood cottage asks $545K

Well-renovated 1941 house with jaunty awning and studio

Small 1941 frame house painted light blue with cream trim and blue-and-white-striped awning in front
Vintage East Austin home at 3102 Lafayette Avenue
Via Estately

Located on under large oaks under tree-lined Lafayette Avenue in East Austin’s Cherrywood neighborhood, this renovated home stands out, even among the lovely homes of similar vintage in the the area. Maybe it’s the jaunty awnings, or maybe we’re just suckers for a classic, blue-and-cream color scheme.

The home has been renovated in an eclectic but appealing manner: There’s lots of exposed shiplap, along with high ceilings, wood floors, and French doors, but the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated with contemporary features that blend in well.

The 1,077-square-foot-home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as two living areas that convene nicely in a corner kitchen. There is a second building in back that’s been remade into an office and a charming, enclosed patio/entertaining area.

More great outdoor space can be found on the covered backyard patio and in side yard, shaded by mature Post Oaks—all enclosed by a visually unobtrusive privacy fence.

The main living room and den meet at the kitchen, which has updated cabinets and stainless-steel appliances.

Bedrooms and bathrooms display a mix of contemporary updates and original features.

Outside are a studio/office building and entertaining/hangout areas in side, back, and front yards.
