Anyone looking for a storybook house in a storybook setting might want to get over to this two-story, Tudor-style home in Old West Austin. Built in 1939 in Pemberton Heights, one of the grandest and leafiest parts of the neighborhood, it positions its steeply angled roofs and dormers to great advantage in the forested surroundings. The second story and its weathered shingle siding in particular bestow a classic, unpretentious tone. It also has a picket fence out front.
You won’t find the property at 2806 Wooldridge Drive in the MLS; the private listing is held by Natalie Kopp at Gottesman Residential Real Estate. The 1,960-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as high-end contemporary updates that enhance its Tudor-style charm. It has a detached garage as well as a fenced backyard. The asking price is $1.5 million.
