This one-story, frame home is nothing if not eye-catching. It’s also supremely located, if you’re into food, nightlife, and neighborly interactions—in a pocket of Central East Austin close to downtown and even closer to Franklin.
Built in 1927 in classic bungalow style, the 827-square-foot house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Original and historically appropriate features abound and include a covered front porch, hardwood floors, double-hung windows with wide frames, and those half-walls with Craftsman-style columns and built in bookshelves that everyone loves, dividing the living and dining rooms. The kitchen and bathroom have been renovated, the latter in funky-eclectic fashion.
Though obviously it was originally a single-family home, the house will become part of a condo regime with another unit, though it’s unclear if it will share a lot with an existing home to its north or something yet to be built on its south. At any rate, the listing assures that the homes will be divided by a privacy fence and won’t share a driveway. The address is 1170-1/2 Navasota Street, and the listing agent is Courtney Hohl at Compass.
