Located in the still small-scaled residential blocks adjacent to Huston Tillotson University in Central East Austin, this vintage home is modest-looking and unassuming from the street. Inside, thanks in part to a contemporary addition that thankfully fades into the background from the exterior, it’s a creatively remodeled, inviting space with just enough quirks to keep it interesting.

The front section of the house, built in 1900, features original longleaf-pine floors that are blended with 100-year-old reclaimed wide-plank flooring in the addition. Vintage chandeliers, colorful encaustic and Saltillo tile, and other design details work to blend the two sections as well.

There’s a second-story master suite, reached by spiral staircase, with a separate living area and a loft with downtown views. The 2,202-square-foot home has two additional bedrooms and total of two and a half bathrooms.

The galley kitchen features cook-friendly details such as a five-burner stove and butcher block counters. Its French doors open to a contemporary outdoor dining and patio space, completing a subtle and well-executed stylistic transition.
