Classic mid-century cottage in Crestview, one of Central Austin’s most desirable neighborhoods. Valued for its wide, shady streets, mix of vintage charm and contemporary new construction and a friendly, casual vibe, Crestview is the perfect place to enjoy the Austin lifestyle. Bike lanes traverse the area, and you’ll see dozens of walker morning and evening. Walk up to the local Fresh Plus for groceries and stop at Little Deli pizza for dinner before enjoying a leisurely stroll through Brentwood Park on your way home. When you want to enjoy urban Austin, you’re just 10 minutes away from downtown in one direction and shopping and dining at the Domain to the north.


This delightful home has recently been updated, retaining its original charm with updated amenities. Mid-century tile and warm hardwood floors mix with modern lighting, appliances and new cabinetry to create a wonderful place to call home. The lush property is a gardener’s paradise with plenty of sun in the front yard for flowers and a huge back yard for vegetable gardening, playing and entertaining. Enjoy dinner on the large, shady back deck as you listen to birds chirping in the trees. A workshop at the back of the one-car garage will hold your gardening equipment at the ready. Walking distance to the brand-new Brentwood Elementary School, as well as Lamar Middle School and McCallum High School/Fine Arts Academy.
