It seems to be a week for lovely 1930s homes of different styles to be on the market and having open houses. Maybe it’s just a spring thing (spring-ish, anyway, since temps aren’t exactly balmy right now). This bona fide bungalow, built in 1939, is in the convenient and historic Swede Hill section of East Austin. Until recently, it has been hidden behind shrubbery and other foliage but has recently been exposed (save its towering heritage oaks, thankfully) and made ready for its close-up.
The 872-square-foot wood home now has updated and restored with hardwood floors, custom tile, a restored exterior, and marble incorporated into the renovated bathroom and kitchen. It’s set up for outdoor entertaining as well. In addition to its inviting, covered front porch, there is a wraparound deck, an long side yard, and private space in back.
Located at 1808 Navasota Street, the home is listed by Heather C. Powell at Compass. It’s on the market for $675,000.
