Austin has plenty of vintage, modest-sized, single-family homes (which we often call “bungalows,” for better or for worse). Those clad in red brick, with other features that read as “traditional” in a more middle-American way—such as this unostentatious but appealing one-story home—are fewer in number. Perhaps that’s why they pop out so readily on a real-estate scroll.

Technically, the 2,205-square-foot house is located in West Campus/West University—but it’s tucked away on one of those quiet, dead-end streets in a leafy enclave just east of Shoal Creek and North Lamar Boulevard, which tend to have a more serene atmosphere than those closer to UT.

As is the wont of vintage homes, it has high ceilings, French doors, oak floors, original window and door frames, and a brick fireplace. It features three to four bedrooms (or three bedrooms and a bonus room) and not one but three full bathrooms with nicely kept and/or well-restored vintage tile.

Much of the corner lot is taken up by the house and a back garage and storage space, but there’s an ample front yard with a sweet porch and mature shade trees all around. The listing is held by Susan Kramer of Chestnut Realty.
