So far, spring in Austin has seen the bloom of a number of super-fine contemporary homes as well as quintessential quaint bungalows, such as this adorable specimen at 1811 Canterbury Street.
Located as it is, just on the East Cesar Chavez side of the line that divides it from adjacent Holly (Chicon Street), the home benefits from the lush greenery and convenience to the lake and vibrant street life that typify both neighborhoods.
The one-story, frame home has the bonus of being on a large, fenced corner lot with alley access and no shortage of towering trees—including a rare species of oak. Measuring 1,068 square feet, the house has three bedrooms and one bathroom. It features a number of details from its 1930 origins as well as many updates, including the addition of a skylight and custom-batiked walls in the dining room.
The exterior features mature plantings, landscaped paths, covered porches, and a one-car carport.
