While we examine this listing, let’s not focus on whether or not it is located in Clarksville (which it certainly is, colloquially speaking). Let’s instead look at it as one of the restored vintage homes that Old West Austin (which Clarksville is a part of) is known for and go from there.
Built in 1910, the cozy front house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as loads of features that charm fans of the era. These include a covered, inviting front porch and landscaped yard behind a decorative iron fence; original longleaf pine flooring, trim, and baseboards, 12-foot ceilings, transoms, exposed and painted shiplap, and the like. Updates include a modern kitchen with a center island and completely renovated bathrooms.
Out back is a bit of a surprise: Above the two-car garage is a full studio apartment or guest room, also restored and updated and as fetching as the front home. The two homes measure a total of 2,319 square feet.
