South Austin has been unveiling gems little and large lately. A charming, one-story home in Bouldin Creek falls into the cozy category at 736 square feet—but it’s packed with character and style.

Built in 1955, the house was redesigned in 2017 by lauded local firm Courtney Blanton Interiors. The layout takes advantage of generous decks front and back as well as a large backyard and screened-in porch. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home has wood floors, custom built-ins, stainless appliances, and natural stone counters.

Located at 703 West Johanna Street, the home is listed by Engel & Volkers.
