The jury is still out on whether or not other cities are as fond of identifying their neighborhoods by ZIP codes as Austin is (see: 78704 as a starting point). Whatever the case, it’s pretty clear that 78745—which encompasses the Garrison Park neighborhood where this house is located—is on a roll. House hunters seeking elusive character and authenticity—as well as relatively affordable homes that are appreciating rapidly—would do well to take a serious look around the area. In the case of this ranch-style home the price and unique style add to the appeal.

The one-story house was built in 1964 and has a floor plan and lines typical of that era, but a couple of things set it apart. One is that it is built of stacked stone; another is its well-planned and -cultivated corner lot, which has evolved to be so entertainment-friendly that parties held there have been featured in local style magazine Tribeza.

The 1,950-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and features bamboo floors, a vintage-style kitchen, and a large second living area with stained concrete flooring as well as updated plumbing, a new roof, and new windows.

Set back from the street, the home has a drought-friendly front yard filled with mature foliage and a backyard with multiple entertainment areas and large shade trees.
