This two-story, 2,021-square-foot home was originally a smaller stone house in the 1940s, befitting its location in the historic Hancock neighborhood. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, original oak floors, and period-style lining with many modern updates. It’s on a large lot with a private backyard, mature trees, and native plants and asking $729,500.
Located in Cambridge Tower, Austin’s first (and grooviest) landmark residential tower on the southern edge of Downtown, a 1,169-square-foot luxury condo with one bedroom and two bathrooms seems like a decent buy for what it’s asking ($695,000, with HOA dues of $811 per month). The perforated concrete blocks that distinguish its balconies and its huge views alone are worth it, but the penthouse unit also has updates such as bamboo floors, marble bathrooms. automatic sun shades, and built-in cabinetry.
Designed by local firm MF Architecture, which is always doing nifty things with light, space, and modern design, this garden home is in a pretty sweet part of Bouldin Creek—especially if you’re into the South First Street, wood floors, and high-end finishes. It’s thus on the high end of this week’s price range, asking $749,900, with HOA dues of $200 per month.
An updated ranch-style home build in 1954, this one-story home in Allandale has four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and two living areas in 2,153 square feet. Features include hardwood floors, an open plan with a kitchen island, new fixtures, and a large, private backyard. It looks like it’s close, but not too close, to MoPac, but that might be something to check out. It’s asking $714,000.
Those seeking a West Lake address with a lot of outdoor space might want to take a look at this one-story, frame and stone home built in 1981. There’s 2,481 square feet inside, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, on a leafy lot that measures just under half an acre. It has some wood and slate floors, a fireplace, and a two-car garage. The asking price is $699,000.
