This home in the north central Brentwood neighborhood has a couple of locational advantages of note. It’s in the classically Austin Violet Crown Heights subdivision, which, in addition to having a lovely name, is a mere two blocks from the Stiles Switch barbecue mecca and surrounding attractions. Because those blocks are long, however, it’s far enough from North Lamar Boulevard to allow avoidance of the hustle and bustle. It’s also priced decently, for the location and the Time and Place We Live In, asking $449,900.
Built in 1950, the 1,104-square-foot home has three bedrooms and one bathroom. It features many updates, including new exterior paint and a kitchen with high-end, stainless steel appliances. It has wood and hard tile floors throughout and built-in bookcases and recessed lighting in the living room. There’s also an enclosed sunroom with a wood-burning stove and attached laundry room in the back of the house.
The kitchen and bathroom have been updated and both have hard-tile floors.
The one-story home is a on roomy, landscaped lot with mature trees, a fenced backyard with a deck, a one-car garage, and a carport.
