Located in North Central Austin just a little west of IH-35, close to the border of the St. John’s and Highland neighborhoods, this one-story home is classically 1950s (it was built in 1955); it has the low, horizontal lines, the flat roof, the attached carport, all that stuff. It has been remodeled inside in a way that’s not too precious or that holds the era particularly dear, but is nevertheless fresh, charming, and cozy.
It’s also surrounded by similar homes, located along a curvy city street with plenty of mature trees and lawn space. It has a fenced backyard and a small deck complete with space for the grill. The front yard looks recently spiffed-up, with big pavers, gravel, and select plants forming a pleasant entry and curb appeal.
The 1,058-square-foot, brick-and-frame home at 7702 East Crest Drive has three bedrooms and one fully remodeled bathroom as well as new siding, stainless-steel kitchen appliances, and wood floors. The listing is held by Gregory Carlson of Keller Williams Realty.
