Without judgment or presumption, let’s just say that this South Austin home appears to need some updating. For those who enjoy that sort of challenge, though, it could offer a world of fun and potential.
Located at 800 Columbus Street in Bouldin Creek, the frame home has shingle siding—unusual for its neighborhood (and Austin as a whole) but suited to its oak-canopied site. Built in the 1950s, the 1,444-square-foot home has a split-level layout that features a two-bedroom, one-bathroom main section and an apartment with one bedroom and one bathroom on the lower level.
The house has wood and linoleum floors, built-in bookcases, and other elements of its era, as well as great downtown views from the main floor, according to the listing. It also has a patio overlooking its curvy corner lot and lawn, as well as a storage shed and gardens in back.
The listing for the home is held by Marcia Kasson at Realty Austin.
