Located between Big Red Sun and Raquel’s Partyland (a shop specializing in jump-houses and piñatas) on busy East Cesar Chavez Street, this two-home property is clearly positioned an an investment buy. (Clues include the words “fantastic investment opportunity” and “cash flow machine” in the Towers Realty listing, as well as the mixed-use zoning mentioned there.)
Current owners appear to be extracting cash in the form of using it as a vacation rental, and the larger house at the front of the property is a suitably generic affair, aesthetically speaking. The one-story, 1,719-square-foot home has six bedrooms and three bathrooms and looks to have updated facilities and appliances, including a washer-dryer.
Out back is where the fun begins, with a big red deck, a mural by a local artists, and small, one-bedroom, one-bathroom home by Kasita—the Austin-born startup that has received international attention with its good-looking, small, prefab smart homes designed in part in hopes of creating options for affordable housing (and are also just really nifty). The mod tiny home is movable or can be converted for other uses if the buyer has a different vision for the property—or wants to keep it as is and move in.
