No bets on what will eventually surround it, but for now this home is supremely located for those who want to live near but not on top of East Austin’s most active streets. Tucked away on a dead-end street in the leafy Holly neighborhood a few steps from the lake and a few more to the hike-and-bike trail and Fiesta Gardens, the one-story house also has the kind of yard real-estate professionals tend to call an “oasis.” In this case, the term is warranted, at least inasmuch as it can be applied in an urban setting, as the fenced, private area focuses on a simple, modern pool surrounded by an inviting entertainment area with an outdoor kitchen, a covered patio, and lovely, locally resonant landscaping that wraps around the side and back of the property.
The 1,680-square-foot home is made of stucco and stone. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and has a few updates in addition to the oasis, including a new HVAC system. Located at 72 San Saba Street, it’s listed by Keith Trigaci at Compass.
