The charms of the Holly neighborhood and its neighbor, East Cesar Chavez, are well-known to both locals and new Austinites by now. Located in proximity to any number of popular restaurants, bars, breweries, hotels, and other attractions—as well as to one of the loveliest parts of the hike-and-bike trail that runs along the lake, most of Canterbury Street has, improbably, remained small-scale and residential.
Built in 2016, the home at 2211 Canterbury Street is light and contemporary, but it’s set back from the street, has two large trees in front, and is appropriately proportioned to the new and older homes around it. It’s actually two homes—or a home and detached guest suite, according to the listing. The main house has two stories with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The detached, one-story guest suite has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with private alley parking. Both structures are two stories high and measure a total of 2,804 square feet. Austin Stowell at Compass holds the listing.
