Adorable cottage in central city asks $425K

1920s home with many original features

Small wooden home painted bright green with white trim
401 West 37th Street

Located in the Central Austin neighborhood just south of Hyde Park and just north of the newly anointed Aldridge Place Local Historic District, this home is convenient to many things.

Those include but are not limited to: the University of Texas, Wheatsville Food Co-op and other popular establishments that stretch along Guadalupe Street in area, walks through the pretty, aforementioned neighborhoods, and the Triangle, the smallish planned development anchored by Central Market on the southern end.

At 1,021 square feet, the home is compact but hardly the smallest we’ve seen. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Built in the 1920s in a general Craftsman style, the house retains a number of historic features, including wooden floors, paneled doors, period door and window trim and baseboards, and double-hung windows.

The home also has a sweet front porch characteristic of the style and large back yard that’s fully fenced and has a storage building.

Located behind the kitchen is a large laundry room with washer-dryer hookups and outdoor access.

The back yard is large enough for creating an entertaining or gardening space, adding on to the main house, or building a second structure (as allowed by zoning and such).
