Given the skate ramps out back, screaming blue guest cottage with sea creatures painted on the walls, and mildly confrontational, graphic-style artwork, this one-story home in Travis Heights seems to have some street cred. It’s a classic South Austin house, bungalow-style, built in 1935. It’s been updated somewhat but retains features such as wood-sash, double-hung windows; some wood floors—there’s also lots of Saltillo tile; and a now-decorative fireplace.
In addition to the 1,050-square-foot main house, which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, there’s a one-bedroom, one-bathroom detached studio with a full kitchen in the aforementioned bright-blue building in back. It measures 414 square feet. (Even if you don’t like the art on the walls inside the main house—which most likely doesn’t convey, anyway—we really advise keeping the exterior mural).
The home is also on a large lot, so there’s plenty of room left in the fenced backyard, which has a patio and a shaded, grassy area. The property is listed by Heather Witbeck at Compass.
