Old-school Austin compound wants a New Austin price

Contemporary Eastside property on the market for $1.195M

Small covered patio with suspended lounging bed
2206 New York Avenue
Via All Access Austin

The sticker shock in East Austin is still strong, for some reason. Perhaps it’s because Rosewood, where this contemporary home is located, was one of the slower neighborhoods to gentrify. Or maybe it’s just because the earliest gentrifiers have become nostalgic for their more hippie-fied versions of what the collection of living spaces here replicates, sort of, and can’t fathom the markup.

Still, the asking price seems awfully high—even if it does get you 3,023 square feet with five bedrooms and four bathrooms across a few separate structures. Other than that—and maybe that the listing is blatant about the richness of its short-term-rental setup—all is groovy; it was built in 2016 but harks back to the days when renovation meant eclectic reuse and everyone had Dwell on their coffee tables.

The main house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a separate guest house has two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. There is also a one-bedroom, one-bathroom tiny house, and all are connected by a central courtyard. All Access Austin holds the listing. (Via Creede Fitch.)
