SOLD: 1307 East 29th Street
This delightful 3 bedroom cottage in Austin's hip French Place neighborhood has been freshly remodeled with all the modern amenities you expect without sacrificing the charm and character common to homes of the 1930s.
The front porch of this Central Austin home is perfect for greeting neighbors, and the home’s cheerful colors beckon you in. Just inside you are greeted with on-trend patterned tile in the foyer. The adjoining great room includes both living and dining spaces, making it ideal for entertaining guests. The cozy fireplace with its attractive, natural stone hearth is the perfect accent to the hub of the home.
The nearby kitchen has a clean and smooth feel thanks to a new stone and stainless steel tile backsplash, stainless appliances, and a graphite-colored counter that is great for hiding spills and messes. The kitchen opens onto the adjacent breakfast nook, providing another place to enjoy meals in addition to the formal dining room.
At 1476 square feet, the home’s three bedrooms are spacious and can be used for a variety of purposes. The bathroom has been upgraded in keeping with the time period of the home. White mosaic flooring and classic subway tile are the perfect neutral backdrop for elegant stainless silver accents. The Kohler pedestal sink and recessed medicine cabinet make efficient use of the space and enhance the retro-chic style of the room.
Period details like vintage-style glass doorknobs continue the cottage vibe throughout the home. Beautifully refinished wood floors are also true to the era. With large windows throughout, this attractive home is light and bright. The house is also equipped to accommodate a full-size washer and dryer, with extra storage space in the laundry closet.
Situated on a roomy corner lot, the backyard is just begging for you to build a man-cave or she-cave, or maybe even an accessory dwelling unit. And you’d still have ample off-street parking to spare…
Not only is the house itself a gem, it’s also in an unbeatable Central Austin location. Enjoy walking to popular restaurants along Manor Road like Hoover’s, El Chile, East Side Café, or Sugar Mamas. And no fighting for parking spaces at UT events! You can easily walk to the UT Law School, the stadium, and the rest of campus from this home’s convenient location near the Northeast corner of the University of Texas campus. It also has great proximity to Manor Road, I-35, and Dean Keeton Street. This is urban living at its best.
