It’s hefty, but considering the neighborhood and the condition, the price of this updated Tudor Revival home isn’t outrageous. Located in prestigious ‘n’ pretty Old West Austin, the stone house was built in 1933. In addition to the 1,716-square-foot main home, which as three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it has a detached living space that could double as a guest bedroom.
The main house features oak and pine floors, a fireplace (with a limestone surround that might be an update), crown molding, arched doorways, mint-green bathroom tile, and loads of other sweet vintage details. Updates include energy-efficient windows, a professional range, granite counters, stainless-steel backsplash, and a wet bar.
The main home has copper gutters, landscaped gardens, a covered back patio, and a large backyard with a privacy fence. The detached, ivy-covered structure fits well with the older house due to its low-key style; it’s large, room, and sunny, with big windows and a vaulted roof.
