The impressive commitment to an all-purple exterior might be the most unusual and alluring feature of this home, but it’s not the only one.
Located on a popular, tree-lined street in South Austin’s Bouldin neighborhood, the house was built in 1935. The house has been updated since then (we’re going to guess in the 1990s/early aughts), and the interiors are fine and clean but fairly standard issue for the most part—save the hardwood floors and the second-floor bedrooms that open on to balconies/a veranda. The home is also spacious, at 2,462 square feet, with five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The roomy, covered front porch, along with the aforementioned verandas and grounds are the big attraction, however. There looks to be mature xeriscaping and shade trees, covered and uncovered patios with fans and a fire pit, respectively, as well as a separate backyard with fence. Somewhere there are three parking spaces, and there’s a detached studio, also purple, as well.
