Set in the lush, forested Balcones Park hills, this ranch-style home has been renovated but retains some of the more attractive and quirky styles characteristic of its 1951 build date. Those include, at the very least, a fireplace made from freestanding, stacked-stone walls with a curved brass structure covering the chimney. There are also some nice built-ins and original-looking windows, including a wall of them that opens on to a large deck that overlooks the backyard and surrounding trees.
In addition to the main home, the property has a 450-square-foot guest house with a kitchen, bathroom, laundry facilities, and a separate air-conditioning system.
The original home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,562 square feet. There’s also a carport with a large storage area.
