3 Beds 2 Baths 2,160 Sq.Ft.


Perched on a picturesque hilltop of mature trees in the growing MLK neighborhood, this shaded yet sun-soaked sizable corner lot hosts a monument to East Austin’s underrated history of stunning midcentury architecture. Built in 1960 w/ an unusually large footprint for the area at 2,160 sf, this 3/bed, 2/bath home represents the best of the city’s now highly-sought-after spins on classic modernism, w/ characteristic post-and-beam construction, stone exterior, & deeply lovable retro pink bathroom tile. In keeping w/ the frequent incorporation of regional materials you’ll find in Austin’s best residences embodying the ’60s design language, the home features transom windows & extensive use of local stone inside and out. The phrase “good bones” doesn’t really do this one justice — the residence would be a perfect canvas for an incredible restoration by a buyer with an eye for this era’s timeless architectural inspirations, but it’s also fully livable in its current condition. Extensive renovations & other interior upgrades already in place include a recently-replaced roof, double pane windows added in 90% of the home in 2015, a new air conditioner, new attic insulation, a repaired foundation (including a lifetime warranty), custom kitchen cabinets & hand-poured concrete countertops. Additional upgrades like an attic ethernet line & surge protection for the entire home bring you out of the 1960s into a slightly more modern era, but the preserved look and feel of this residence speaks for itself. Its quirky sunken Great Room, reminiscent of the famous & now-revived “conversation pits” of the midcentury era, sports new ceilings and walls, providing a natural gathering place with its gas-burning fireplace as a comfortable centerpiece. In this location, you’re within a 5 minute walk (or bike ride) to a free pool, free gym & new playground at Givens Park! Owners began renovation of home but a new baby and job opportunity took them home to Louisville.
