Built in 1920, this gorgeous and gracious home is located in just the neighborhood to suit its generous front porch and welcoming quality. Located on leafy Willow Street in what we like to think of as Austin’s garden district (the Eastside Holly neighborhood), it’s walkable to Metz Park and the hike & bike trail, as well as to the many restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues in the area.

The large front porch of the 1,213-square-front home opens to a lovely wide hallway with potential for many things, including stairs to a future upstairs conversion (or just leaving it as a hallway, as it’s rather nice.

The large living room has 10-foot-high, coffered ceilings, large windows, and oak floors.

The one-story home has two bedrooms with large windows and ceiling fans, as well as one bathroom. A remodeled kitchen features stainless steel cabinetry, stove, and refrigerator that contrast nicely with what look like vintage cabinets.

In addition, there’s an extra back room that could be a dining area or play room, a separate laundry room, and a big screened-in back porch.

There’s also a detached back studio with a bathroom and a kitchenette; its footage is not included in the listing total.
