SOLD: Classic 1960s Crestview cottage
There’s so much to love about this 1960s brick cottage in Crestview. For starters, it’s in a fantastic location. Crestview is a beautiful neighborhood with tree-lined streets in the heart of Central Austin, and this home is ideally situated within the neighborhood. Brentwood park, pool, and Brentwood Elementary School are both located at the end of the street within easy walking distance where you can enjoy the community pool, tennis courts, and basketball courts.
The home is also convenient to Anderson Lane and Burnet Road making it simple to navigate around town. Hop on over to Taco Deli for your taco fix, have some pizza at Little Deli, grab a drink at Lala’s, or enjoy a fine meal at Barley Swine. Everything that Central Austin has to offer is only moments away.
The home itself is charming. Tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street, a heritage oak tree in the front yard shades the home from the elements. The covered front porch is an ideal perch for visiting with neighbors. Its cheerful brick exterior lends a warm welcome and is consistent with the traditional architecture found throughout Crestview.
The 1200+ square foot cottage has two living areas, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. A formal living area at the entry of the home has a large picture window and features the original hardwood floors. These beautiful hardwood floors continue in the two bedrooms of the home, giving them effortless ease.
The rear bedroom includes a walk-in closet and small en suite bathroom with a shower. The front bedroom has two closets and access to the large guest bathroom. Both bathrooms feature the original retro tile in mint condition. You’ll love the character the gold tile accents add to the bathrooms. It’s retro chic!
A second informal living and dining room connect to the kitchen in the popular 'great room' style. The flexible space allows distinct zones for relaxing, dining, and meal prep.
Beautifully remodeled with fantastic attention to detail, the updated kitchen includes open shelving for display, as well as deep drawers and Shaker-style cabinets for storage. The engineered stone counters shine, and a subtle grey subway tile adds depth in the backsplash. The open concept allows for formal meals at the dining table or informal meals at the built-in bar.
The large back patio and yard expand the living space of the home. Host a grill-out with the neighbors, install a playscape, or plant a garden. The options for this backyard are endless, and the tall privacy fence ensures that you have your own private oasis.
Even though the home has a small footprint, there’s no shortage of storage. In addition to the bedroom closets, there’s a storage closet and utility room in the house. The laundry room is located just off the garage making an ideal drop zone as you enter the home. A roomy two-car garage includes built-in shelving and its own sink. An additional storage building in the backyard ensures that all of your belongings can be conveniently tucked away. And with an adorable porthole window, the storage building would make a fantastic studio or workshop too.
The pier and beam structure of the house is also big benefit. The crawl space underneath the house ensures that you can easily access plumbing and other mechanicals.
This classic Crestview home has been beautifully maintained so that the old Austin neighborhood feel lives on. Offered for sale for $449,000. Please reach out with any questions or to arrange a showing before it goes on the market. Know someone else who might be interested? Pass it along!
