While real-estate professionals and other interested parties have been trying, off and on, to get us to call the neighborhood where this awfully pretty midcentury home is located “East Travis Heights,” we’re going to stick with the traditional and unpretentious East Riverside on that front. It is, after all, a perfectly fine place to live, and any necessary rebranding will happen soon enough, concurrent with all the development planned in the area.

Back to the subject at hand, though: This one-story, brick home built in 1956 and still in possession of that era’s classic style. The house has obviously been updated, but it maintains its original floor plan, fireplace, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and, probably, vibe. The 2,560-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms (yes, Virginia, there is one with pale blue and another with pale orange tiles). It also features two living areas and a studio/work room, along with a sweet, attached carport with a flat roof and storage space.

The home is located on a large lot, especially considering how close it now is to downtown. In addition to a fittingly landscaped front yard, it has a large, fenced backyard with two entertainment areas that still leave room for a pool. The atomic rancher is located at 1708 Sylvan Drive and listed by DEN Property Group.
