FOR SALE: Brentwood bungalow with studio apartment
Bungalow charm and a modern interior all rolled into one! That's what you get at our newest listing at 1304 Alguno in Austin’s sought-after Brentwood neighborhood. This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home -- plus separate studio apartment -- is ideally located in close proximity to the popular eateries, retail, and shopping along Koenig, Burnet Road, and Lamar. The picturesque tree-lined streets, sense of community among the neighbors, and the versatility of this charming bungalow are hard to resist.
Accented with drought-tolerant cacti and succulents, the home is nestled among a lush lawn and shade trees. With ample space for a swing or lounge chairs, the expansive front porch is a wonderful extension of the home’s living space and an ideal spot for chatting with the neighbors.
A bright and airy living room greets you when you enter the front door. Right-sized for everyday living, the living room features large windows that draw your eye to the verdant backyard. Mid-century details seamlessly merge with modern upgrades to create an inviting and livable space. The original hardwood floors shine underfoot and are found throughout the living room, dining room, and both bedrooms.
While fully updated to modern tastes, the Craftsman-style of kitchen feels like a natural extension of the original home. An apron front sink, seeded glass cabinets, built-in wine storage, and concrete counters give the kitchen character and substance. Stainless steel appliances, including a gas range with space for keeping food warm under the vent hood, provide a hint of shine.
Dynamic storage options make it easy to find a spot for everything. An eat-in bar makes a great serving station or a convenient spot for informal meals. There’s also a dedicated dining area positioned between the kitchen and the living room so that you can gather together with ease as you enjoy a view of the backyard.
The two bedrooms are positioned down the hall from the kitchen and living areas, with a full bathroom for sharing. The bathroom features a pedestal sink, hexagon floor tile, ample storage options, and an alcove bathtub/shower.
Both bedrooms are warm and inviting with several windows welcoming in sunlight. One of the rooms has its own covered entrance and private yard. You can truly make this space your own private oasis! Each bedroom features two closets, providing ample storage for each room.
This home has a large backyard that gives you options when it comes to enjoying the space and entertaining. Off the kitchen is a roomy screened-in porch where you can sip lemonade while rocking in the breeze, but protected from the elements. The yard itself features a stone patio with a fireplace where you can gather with friends and make s’mores.
There is plenty of yard space to play catch with your four-legged friends, and there are several spots that would be perfect for herb or vegetable gardens. A storage shed is ready for your lawn equipment and tools, and the covered carport is securely behind the gate next to the house, allowing for more driveway space.
As an added bonus, this home features a fully separate accessory dwelling unit that has electricity, a full bathroom, and laundry hook ups. The space is ready to be used or can be updated to meet your needs.
