This one-story home was built in 1962, and it has been updated in an excellent manner. That doesn’t mean it hews to the era in which it was built, but it has a clean, airy look that avoids being generic or sterile.
Located in South Austin’s St. Edward’s neighborhood and close to South Congress Avenue, the 1,705-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
It’s had a “to the studs” remodel, as they say, as well as an addition. It now sports wide-plank hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, new Milgard windows, and custom millwork. There are also quartz countertops as well as some beautiful custom tile work, among other designer finishes.
The master bedroom and bathroom have a walk-in closet, double vanity, garden bathtub, and walk-in shower.
Outside, there’s a custom landscape design with cut pavers and a new, automatic sprinkler system. The backyard has a privacy-providing, full cedar fence and a large, full lawn beyond the gravel-and-paver patio and plant beds near the house.
