The interiors of this two-story, wood-frame house have been renovated and brightened up in a contemporary style that looks well-executed if generic. Original features of the renovated vintage home, built in 1947 in Travis Heights, include hardwood floors and a fireplace, while a floating staircase made of steel and wood and an artfully tiled kitchen refresh the space.
The 2,213-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite has vaulted ceilings and a large balcony that overlooks large heritage oaks in the backyard, where much of the home’s visual interest lies. In addition to the curvy, stone-stepped walkway and patio, there’s a 522-square-foot art studio/workshop with potential apartment conversion and an angled gable end that adds character as a balcony wall. Realty Austin holds the listing for the property, which is at 1409 Alameda Drive.
