Colorful East Austin cottage with potential seeks $290K

Renovated home in MLK-183 neighborhood

This quite fetching home, built in 1949, is located in the until recently overlooked MLK-183 neighborhood and still sports a price that falls within the realm of reasonable for many home buyers. While parts of the neighborhood were formerly known for flooding, the listing for this home puts it out of the flood plain, and in general the area’s drainage has been improved over the past few decades.

The home has been remodeled nicely, with polished, original wood floors, new fans, and new landscaping. At 1,156 square feet, it has three bedrooms and one bathroom. There’s a large back den with a laundry room, and all all appliances convey.

The one-story, frame home sits on a decent-sized lot with a storage shed and two off-street parking spots.

In addition to the sweet, green lot, move-in-ready status, and potential for further renovation and expansion, the house is in a prime location, minutes from both downtown and the super-hip Sahara Lounge, among other attractions.
