Some of the knockout effect of this this gorgeous two-story in Travis Heights is due to the staging (all hail), but it looks like it would be stunning even without the furniture. Originally a South Austin bungalow circa 1937, the frame home has been expanded to three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,108 square feet.
The expansion was clearly designed by someone who has an eye for tableaus both dramatic and homey, and who knows what to keep and emphasize. Original hardwood floors, high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and a sun room are some of the features that speak to its roots.
The home also has abundant natural light, two screened-in porches, a professionally landscaped and fenced backyard, and an inviting patio. Priced at $1.275 million, the home at 1604 Alta Vista Avenue is listed by Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty.
