Even without its accessory unit, this vintage Cherrywood home has a lot going for it. Built in 1949, the frame-and-stone, one-story house leans toward modern but captures a utilitarian, postwar aesthetic as well. Located on a corner lot in East Austin’s Cherrywood neighborhood, the main home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,618 square feet.
The updated interiors feature oak floors, large windows, lots of light, and an open floor plan. A screened porch in back leads to a fenced backyard with multiple outdoor living areas as well as to a 500-square-foot studio apartment. That unit looks very recently updated, and features vaulted ceilings, wood floors, shiplap walls, skylights, and a sleek, contemporary kitchen and bathroom. There’s also an outdoor entertainment area that looks designated for the guest house/accessory dwelling unit, which could serve as a long- or short-term rental, depending on what current regulations allow.
