This modest-sized home might not have had many distinguishing characteristics when it was built in 1961, but it has since received a winning renovation that brings considerable contemporary charm to the proceedings. Located in a choice section of South Austin’s Galindo neighborhood approximately halfway between West Oltorf Street and West Ben White Boulevard, it’s convenient to the area’s amenities but in a quiet residential enclave.
Recent updates to the three-bedroom, one-bedroom home, which measures 1,016 square feet, include replacement of the roof, siding (now a kicky aqua), and windows. The interior features engineered hardwood floors throughout (other than the hard tile from Clay Imports Austin in the bathroom in the updated bathroom) and an upgraded kitchen with quartz countertops and stainless appliances.
In back is a private yard with a cedar fence and a lot of potential. There’s a single-car carport with a small, connected studio/office on the side of the home.
The redesign makes good use of a partial wall separating the living area and kitchen.
The three bedrooms featured engineered hardwood floors, and the bathroom spotlights some stylish clay tile.
The home provides a comforting symmetry from front to back, as well as a large yard with much potential.
