One of modest, vintage homes remaining in East Austin, this house has a traditional look and feel with current updates. Located in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood near downtown, the Hike and Bike Trail, and the entertainment and mixed-use businesses that have grown around it, the home was built in 1921 and retains much of its historic character as well as original and new features.
The one-story, frame-and-clapboard home measures 949 square feet and has a large master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and spacious closet, as well as a second bedroom and a bathroom with a brick floor and a clawfoot tub. The home retains its original hardwood floors throughout. It has a large kitchen with a breakfast area and attached preparation area. There is a screened porch accessible from the kitchen and the master bedroom, a fenced yard, and a small, welcoming front porch as well.
The updated kitchen has a dining area as well as an attached room that could serve multiple purposes.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and a spacious closet.
A screened back porch leads to a fenced yard ready for a home owner’s personal touch.
