While they used to be omnipresent, it’s getting harder to find houses like this wood-frame one-story in Austin these days. Built in 1905, the Eastside home is filled with historic features and character, while the paint and decor speak to a different, more bohemian history.

The rooms are big and airy, with high ceilings, large double-hung windows, and wood floors, in the original house up front. That one has three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a flex space, an entry hall, living and dining rooms, and an updated kitchen with custom cabinets.

In back is a detached, 560-square-foot workshop with an apartment the same size on top. The studio has its own full kitchen and bath, including a soaking tub, and a large balcony among the trees. Asking $798,500 and located at 2012 East 16th Street in the Chestnut neighborhood, the home is listed by Briana Miriani at Allure Real Estate.
