This lovely frame home, originally built in 1939, was expanded in 2000, and this year received a huge indoor and outdoor update that left it light and refreshed. With opened-up floor plans, white walls, modern and contemporary light fixtures (including track lighting), and polished, light-colored wood floors, it’s also a bit of a blank slate.
That could be a boon for the right buyer—the kind who wants a home with some history and character but also wants things to be functional, new, and/or easy to navigate.
Located in the heart of South Austin’s Travis Heights neighborhood, the home backs to Little Stacy Park, and is surrounded by greenery in the form of live oaks and other mature plants in its own front and back yards as well. Measuring 2,716 square feet, it has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, in addition to three living areas, formal and informal dining areas, and a study.
The home features oak floors throughout, a just-remodeled kitchen, a fireplace, and vaulted ceilings. The large family room opens to decks overlooking the backyard. There is also a bonus room with a loft.
The second-floor master suite has a private office and walk-in closet.
In addition to spacious decks and mature landscaping, the lot has room to add a pool or off-street parking, accessed from the alley in back, according to the listing.
