This sweet, light, bright home in the central Austin neighborhood of Bryker Woods typifies something that seems eternal about that area of town. The 1,194-square-foot, one-story frame house encapsulates the appreciation of authenticity and originality that afforded the rehabilitations of houses like these in the city, despite their lack of obvious ostentatiousness.

While every single detail might not be original (and many are), newer additions blend flawlessly, from the bright yellow front door and charming shutters to the shaded back deck. Inside, the natural light, along with original and period-appropriate reproductions such as original hardwood floors, archways, crown molding, and built-ins, give the home character and comfort. The kitchen features stone countertops, a large farmhouse sink, stainless appliances, and a breakfast area. The shaded, covered rear porch overlooks the private, fenced-in backyard, which is hardscaped for entertainment and landscaped for low maintenance.

The home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
