A unique but classically South Austin property about to hit the market offers not one but two vintage homes on one large lot, both renovated and ready to rock.
Located in the popular and convenient Zilker neighborhood, the homes were both built in the 1930s but have markedly different styles—probably because one appears to be a converted, completely updated barn that now features four bedrooms and two bathrooms and measures 1,850 square feet. The house, at the back of a property with a fenced, private yard of its own, is a natural for a long- or short-term rental, and the current owner will negotiate inclusion of its furniture, linens, kitchen equipment if buyers want a Furnishturnkey space to lease.
The 850-square-foot front home has two bedrooms and one bathroom and features hardwood floors and shiplap walls along with modern appliances.
The remodeled bathroom has period-style fixtures and tile.
The second, larger home is at the back of the property.
The back home has wood and hard-tile floors throughout, as well as media and laundry rooms.
There are kitchens upstairs and downstairs.
The house has a backyard patio and upstairs balcony.
The property will be shown by appointment May 9 and 10 and again May 14-17.
