Historic landmark in Travis Heights asks $1.9M

Built in 1917, the Brass-Milam House remains a South Austin fixture

1409 Newning Avenue
Via Keller Williams

A rambling, restored bungalow that was featured in a 2015 Curbed article as an example of Austin’s booming real estate market is back, this at more than three times asking the price of four years ago.

Built in 1917, the Brass-Milam House (as it is officially known) was restored and made a city historic landmark in 2017. One wishes for better staging, but the multileveled home clearly retains many of its original features—notably, the wide, wraparound porch; high ceilings; and wood floors and trim. There is also beadboard present, mostly on the porches and former porches now enclosed.

The 3,570-square-foot home features three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in a split-level layout, with a downstairs suite/living area leading to a fenced backyard and patio. There’s also a wine room, an office, a built-in outdoor grill, and a two-car garage on the .45-acre lot. The listing for the home at 1409 Newning Avenue is held by Delilah Fuentes at Keller Williams.
