Yes, this two-story, stucco home is located in the tiny, historic Aldridge Place neighborhood, which is just a tiny pocket of the beloved North University/Hemphill Park neighborhood that never completely shed its student-bohemian vibe, even as prices in central Austin climbed. And yes, given that the neighborhood is still home to residents who possessing varying degrees of funkiness—especially compared to, say, Tarrytown or Pemberton Heights—the sticker shock here is real.
Still, it’s an awfully lovely house on a charming street. Built in 1922, the 3,408-square-foot home retains a traditional style (if, possibly, modified with an enclosed port cochere) and a number of period features, including hardwood floors, arched doorways and windows, casement windows, and a fireplace.
In addition to the three-bedroom, two-and-half bathroom main house, there’s a detached studio located just on the other side of a large, covered walkway/patio, one of two outdoor living areas on the property. The home’s fenced lot measures a quarter of an acre, but if you need more room, you can throw in the adjacent lot for a total price of $2.995 million. Both are listed by Andrew Karr of Asterra Properties.
