Holly Street house additions blend with homes in long-established community

The hits keep coming in the Holly neighborhood. This home, located on leafy Holly Street itself, is fairly typical of the area’s housing stock—at least from the front—in that it’s a modest-sized structure in cozy proximity to neighbors, not uncommon in the long-established community.

Built in 1940, the frame home has been remodeled with an open floor plan that brings in lots of natural light and allows easy flow in common areas. It has living areas, a chef-style kitchen, and long-leaf pine ceilings and trim—as well as wood floors—throughout.

The spacious master suite is private and includes closets, a sitting area, and en-suite bathroom. It also opens on to a sprawling deck, a extension of living space that surprises a bit as it’s not visible from the street.

The charming home is easily walkable to many of the area’s ever-growing attractions, including Lady Bird Lake and the Rainey Street entertainment area.

Viewers from the street might be surprised to learn that the house has two stories, which looks like are the result of a well-integrated back addition.

The deck and patios at the back of the lot blend in well and don’t look overly imposing to neighbors. There’s also a storage building in back.
