NEW PRICE reduction of $45K. Welcome to this charming 1950s gem nestled in the heart of Austin, where the hill country begins and the city's original spirit thrives. The exterior is local white limestone from the Texas hill country, adding a touch of timeless elegance. Step inside and fall in love with iconic '50s features like built-in laundry hampers in both bathrooms, an original phone shelf in the hallway and pocket doors throughout the home. The kitchen is a blend of vintage charm and modern convenience, from the unique latches on the cabinets to the local granite countertops quarried in Marble Falls, with a new chef's gas range. Natural light floods the interior through abundant windows, highlighting the custom built-in bookshelves in the living room and den. Situated above the street, this home offers serene tranquility, minimizing road noises, allowing you to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Outside, entertain guests with a large built-in barbecue and smoker, perfect for hosting memorable cookouts. Relax on the second patio at the top of the backyard, boasting stunning views to the east. Below, discover a basement area with a water supply, suitable for a studio or workshop, along with a separate storage room for added convenience. The garage has a separate 3-phase power outlet, previously used for a kiln, ideal for any hobbyist or DIY enthusiast. The front yard is adorned with a large garden featuring native plants and trees, conserving water and enhancing the natural beauty of the landscape. With recent updates inside and out, including fresh paint, this Austin original is ready to welcome you home in one of Austin's most desirable neighborhoods.
