The wood-frame house on this East Austin lot holds plenty of appeal on its own. Built in 1906 and located in the Eastside’s Guadalupe neighborhood, it has the charming front porch of its era, along with the views of Downtown that came later. At 892 square feet, it has two bedrooms and one bathroom, high ceilings, wood floors, what look like original windows and doors, and even a separate utility/laundry area.
While the quaint clapboard house is likely to elicit the most aesthetic interest—at least from the many fans of vintage homes—the (rather hefty) price tag includes two newer, updated dwellings in a two-story building behind it.
The 861-square-foot back home is located at the back of the lot, which means there is still decent amount of yard space between it and the front dwelling, as well as a one-car garage and alley access.
The home in back has a 861-square-foot, loft-style apartment with two bedrooms and one bathroom upstairs and a 304-square-foot studio apartment downstairs.
Both apartments have washer and dryer connections.
