The hits keep coming from South Austin’s 78745 ZIP code. This particular 1960s ranch-style home is in Cherry Creek off Westgate Boulevard, surrounded by similarly sized homes (many of the same vintage) and near new or coming restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, and shops and not far from Westgate Center.
The 1,596-square-foot, single-story home looks like a typical rancher—if particularly well-built and -maintained one—on the outside, but the owners have upgraded the interiors to create a flowing floor plan and open rooms with lots of light. In addition, it now features wood floors throughout, energy-efficient windows, stainless steel appliances and granite kitchen counters, and updated bathrooms with subway tile and new fixtures.
The home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living rooms, and a two-car garage. There’s a front porch with a swing as well as a large, fenced backyard with shady trees, made for outdoor entertaining.
