Listed as a “East Austin country casita,” this updated wood-frame house packs a lot of charm into its 600 square feet (which isn’t really that small, after all). Built in 1950 and extensively renovated in 2010, it’s one of the rare single-family homes in the Holly neighborhood that has retained the scale and vernacular of the Eastside pocket and surrounding areas.
The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home features its original hardwood floors as well as a nine-foot, shiplap ceilings in addition to a vintage stove and butcher block countertops in the kitchen and a clawfoot tub and bright, lovely new tile in the bathroom.
Outside is an arty steel fence that’s that allows privacy as well as interaction with the neighborhood, leafy front and back yards, a sweet screened porch and shaded patio area, fruit trees, and raised garden beds.
The listing is held by Celeste Quesada of Floyd Real Estate, and she’s hosting an open house there Sunday, 1pm-3pm.
