You can buy a sweet, small home in North Loop for $275K

A 1949 cottage with potential in a great location

Sure, this small—tiny, by some standards—home needs some work, but it looks to have a promising palette for renovation, if you’re into that sort of thing. It’s also located in the ever-more-popular central neighborhood of North Loop, convenient to major thoroughfares, downtown, and the University of Texas, as well as tons of popular restaurants, bars, and shopping.

Built in 1949, the one-story, frame home measures 539 square feet. It has one bedroom and one bathroom—not a surprise, given its size—and features some upgrades that are probably fairly recent, including butcher-block countertops, an apron sink with tile back splash, and wood/vinyl plank flooring throughout.

It also has some nifty features that look original, or close to it: a full bathtub and original trim, windows, doors, and the like.

The front yard has landscaping and beds with room for additional plants, and the partially fenced back and side yards has room for a patio or two under their shade trees. There is also an attached, one-car carport.

Fixer-upper aspects of the house might include installing central air conditioning and heating, as the home currently has relies on window and wall units.

The partially landscaped yard contains more space in front and side yards, but there appears to be room for a patio in the small, shady backyard.
