Small East Austin charmer asks $449K

Quirky-cute home built in 1940 on a leafy Holly lot

Gray stucco house with portico over red door and slightly unusual decorative features over windows.
2701 Willow Street
Via Niki Duncan, Compass.

This vintage single-family home is located on the eastern end of the Holly neighborhood, a couple of blocks from busy Pleasant Valley Road on one side and not terribly far from areas on the northeast shore of Lady Bird Lake will likely bust out in force, where it’s not already underway.

The good news is that it’s in the vicinity of several buttressing parks and the hike-and-bike trail which (fingers crossed) keep a certain amount of development at bay while remaining proximate to whatever amenities the future brings (plus: two blocks from the lake!). Also nice is that the one-story, frame-and-stucco structure retains elements of its 1940 build date, including some quirky decorative features of a style that knows no era.

The 1,120-square-foot home has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It features a number of updates as well as wood floors, period cabinetry and trim, a private backyard, and a covered carport/patio with potential to double as and outdoor entertaining/living space. The home is listed by Niki Duncan at Compass.
