Stone house built in 1935 on a forested South Austin lot

This one-story stone home, situated on a large, woodsy lot, does indeed look like a space an exiled prince or princess, the odd grandmother, or a fantastical forest creature could love.

Plenty of normal humans will also enjoy its fairy-tale quality, as well as its unique stone exterior, rooflines, and architectural features such as oak and marble floors, a fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases, archways, French doors, glass doorknobs, crown molding, and nine-foot ceilings.

The 1,897-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and includes plenty of upgrades, including a Fisher & Paykel stove and plenty of cabinets in its galley kitchen.

Other parts of the home have abundant storage as well, with large, walk-in closets—one lined with cedar—and a spacious attic.

Located in South Austin’s popular Travis Heights neighborhood, it’s kept private by its oversized, tree-strewn and landscaped, fully fenced lot. Outdoor living spaces include two patios and a front porch.

The home’s layout flows from living room with a wood-burning fireplace, through a dining room and galley kitchen to a family room/den.

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a full bathtub and separate, walk-in shower.
