SOLD: cute 2/1 cottage in Ridgetop
You'll love the turquoise door on this colorful cottage located in Austin's quaint Ridgetop neighborhood. Hear firsthand from the homeowner about this cute home within walking distance to some of Austin's most popular restaurants along Airport Boulevard.
Located at 900 East 52nd Street, this approximately 1200 square foot home has two bedrooms and one bathroom, spacious living room, roomy laundry area, and workshop.
The cheerful exterior hints at the charming details you'll find inside. The original long leaf pine floors in the main areas of the home are a treasure. Built in 1922, the cottage features other period touches like an exposed brick column and carved door molding. The exposed brick adds character and texture to the space. Hidden beneath the sheetrock you'll find the original shiplap walls -- perfect for an HGTV Fixer Upper-style reno. You just don't see architectural elements like these anymore.
The living room opens to the kitchen and the bathroom that also has access into the large master bedroom. The master has a very large closet that will take care of all of your storage needs. In the bathroom, the shower has sleek, large-format subway tile with penny tile accents.
The kitchen is bright and offers an airy feel to the rest of the home. Through the kitchen you can find a large combined laundry room and mud room that opens onto the enclosed back porch. An adjoining workshop awaits your next project.
The home also features several outdoor spaces to enjoy. We are envious of the long front porch where you can enjoy your morning coffee, chat with your neighbors, or unwind with a glass of vino in the evening. Situated on a corner lot with alley access in the rear, this home has many unique development opportunities. Not only does the covered carport offer parking, but there's also room for additional storage.
The home's location near Airport Boulevard is fantastic. Consider it an investment opportunity with the renaissance development of Airport Boulevard. Interstate I-35 and 290 are very close and can get you across town in minutes. Casey's New Orlean's Snowballs is literally steps away. You can also easily walk to Homeslice Pizza, Turntable, Sa Ten, Kome, Sala and Betty, and more.
Offered at $375,000, this home went under contract with multiple offers the first weekend it hit the market and sold for over the asking price.
