The wealth of shiplap-walled homes currently on the Austin market remains abundant—especially on the Eastside. Submitted into evidence: This vintage house in Holly, built in 1942 and remodeled out the wazoo by Moontower Design Build.
Unlike some “cottages” of its ilk, the home is neither small nor one-note in terms of design. The original walls have been extended and ceilings vaulted, while rustic but modern wooden shelves have been added, as have stainless-steel appliances and concrete counters. Floors are wood and hard tile, and the 1,347-square-foot home’s three bedrooms and two bathrooms have been thoroughly updated.
While the hefty asking price might give some potential buyers pause, it should be noted that the home is on a double lot—or, put another way, is being sold with the lot next door—and has both a pool and a sweet pool house with a large, screened porch and outdoor shower. The property at 1906 and 1908 Haskell Street is listed by Kristen Fojtik at Realty Austin.
