It’s hard to say if this Northwest Austin home is a fixer-upper, exactly—although the listing does read that it is being sold “as-is.” While decorative changes have clearly been made (or not made) since it was new, it appears to have a lot of modern and modern-ranch bones intact—including features like interior stone walls or dividers, wood paneling and floors, and built in cabinets. The things that need to be fixed could largely be a matter of updating, furniture, and taste.

Built in 1962, it’s in the Highland Park West neighborhood on a large lot, among other family-style homes of its size and era and graced by mature trees and a small but sweet back garden area. The 2,154-square-foot home is technically a split-level, with the garage downstairs, and features four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main floor. Listed by Realty Austin, it’s located at 5605 Oak Ridge Drive.
