Classic American Foursquare in Bouldin Creek built in 1900

White, two-story wood-frame house built 1900 big front porch
907 Columbus Street
Bramlett Residential

Built circa 1900, this two-story home is a classic American Foursquare farmhouse—a style that was popular from mid-1890s to the late 1930s and was in part a reaction to the ornate features of Victorian architecture.

Located in the heart of the Bouldin Creek neighborhood about six blocks from Barton Springs, the home has been completely renovated, but retains many of its historic features (including the original footprint) and the character of its period. Its 2,510 square feet include three bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as two dining rooms and two living rooms.

Its vintage features include hardwood floors, high ceilings, crown molding, French doors, a fireplace, and a generous front porch with a beadboard ceiling.

The 117-year-old home now has a wall of windows facing the backyard, stylish new built-in bookcases, and vintage doors that have been reconfigured as sliding barn-style or pocket doors. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with and open plan that incorporates a large living area.

The updated kitchen includes a breakfast bar, center island, and granite/marble and natural stone counters. It opens on to the family room and back patio.

The master bath includes an oversized, walk-in steam shower as well as a full-sized bathtub. The master bedroom includes a dressing room and walk-in closet.

The home is sited on a lot with many mature trees and has a fenced backyard.
