A sweet, small home on a large lot might be just the thing for people who like living simply because they would rather do things other than acquire and maintain their stuff. On the other hand, the large lot that comes with the cozy house at 5105 Lott Avenue (an exclusive listing by Realty Austin) offers creative possibilities, including room to make or build more things. It’s the buyer’s choice, really.
Located in the MLK-183 neighborhood, the 624-square-foot home has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It was built in 1954 and has recently undergone a thorough update that gives it a sort of modern-cabin look.
Updates include a remodeled kitchen and bathroom, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and energy-efficiency features. A large, covered porch overlooks the backyard, and the property has an abundance of fruit trees.
