Not to make too much of it, but we seem to have a surfeit of news and new listings originating in Travis Heights this week. (Also: houses featuring music studios.) This particular home is certainly in that neighborhood’s sweet spot, a few blocks from South Congress Avenue and Little Stacy park and pool.

The 1,490-square-foot home also features an unusual mix of original, new, and new-but-rustic design elements. On the first floor is a screened in porch that includes a grill/vent hood power combo and leads to a cook’s kitchen with what looks like exposed shiplap on the walls and wood floors.

The open-plan kitchen transitions to a living area with Saltillo tile and some nice-looking stained-glass windows. There’s also a newly remodeled bathroom and a flex room (currently used as a music studio and exercise area).

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom house is also set at the back of a large, fenced front yard that offers plenty of shade.

There are two stained-glass windows on the first floor, whiel stairwell features a built-in bookcase with a “draw bridge” for access.

The front yard is fenced, with a pathway leading to a roomy shaded porch featuring a serious grill.
