Sooner or later, many city dwellers dream of a sort of semirustic respite in an old house with a little land around it—such as this Southeast Austin “ranchito,” not far from the Circuit of the Americas, with around 10 acres, a renovated 100-year-old house (3,000 square feet, four bedrooms, three bathrooms), a pole barn, and a workshop. All that for an asking price of $650,000.
