This two-story brick home looks well-maintained and retains many charming features from its era (it was built in 1925). Those include its gabled roofs, tapered chimney, and arched doors and windows, as well as a fireplace, wood floors, French doors, and built-ins. It even has a sweet attic bedroom, which can look monastic or ready for a rock-star bacchanalia, depending on which end you’re looking at.
It’s also on a large lot, one side of which faces busy Speedway. As lovely as the home is, that’s still an active environment to live in. But it’s also just inside the boundaries of Aldrige Place, the North University historic district with many well-preserved homes, and its asking price seems to reflect that situation. (You’ll also need to look past some of the fratty furniture and perhaps marvel at the number of guitars in the listing photos to fully appreciate its qualities.)
The 2,800-square-foot home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and a basement—unusual in these parts. The fenced backyard is large and full of potential. Realty Austin holds the listing.
