The exposed-shiplap boom in East Austin continues, this one a Blackshear-Prospect Hill bungalow a couple of blocks from another charmer that hit the market last week. Located east of Huston-Tillotson University and just north of the scene of an ongoing restaurant and hotel boom, the one-story, frame house was built in 1925. Several of its original features—including the aforementioned walls, beadboard ceilings, and wood floors—blend with canny updates and some reconfiguration to create a cozy-looking home.
It’s compact at 805 square feet, with one bedroom and one bathroom, but a big, landscaped yard featuring a decked-out mobile home/apartment awaits in back. There’s also alley access and two parking spaces.
Located at 2006 East Sixth Street, the home is listed with Matthew Layman at JP and Associates Realtors and is asking $524,900.
