A ranch-style home built in the 1970s is brought to life with bold decor

Built in 1972, this single-family home has received a contemporary upgrade that makes it stand out from the houses around it (all generally of the same vintage). It’s located fairly far south from downtown, but nearby Brodie Lane provides a conduit to multiple highways and other parts of the city.

The 1,572-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The designers who remodeled the classic, ranch-style structure went bold, in a good way. It features the still-much-sought-after open-floor plan, with a vaulted ceiling and plenty of light in the living area. The kitchen has open shelving, an encaustic-style tile backsplash, quartz counter tops, and white, Shaker-style cabinets. There’s an attached, full-sized garage and a fenced backyard with plenty of potential.

Located at 3509 Eskew Drive, the home is listed by Realty Austin.
