The home at 2416 S. Second St. boasts more than just coveted location — it's brimming with history and charm.

The three-bedroom, one-bathroom house dates back to the late 1800s, when it originally stood in Clarksville as the home of a freed slave. Eventually it was moved to a half-acre lot in sought-after South Austin. 

A quaint screened-in porch warmly welcomes guests. Inside, a foyer leads to the formal living and dining rooms, connected by pocket doors. Wood accents, stained glass, transom windows, high ceilings, and unique hardware are found throughout.

The spacious backyard boasts plenty of green space — and beautiful raised garden beds for those with a green thumb. 

Owner Pam Jaroschy is selling this piece of history after spending many years in the home with her late husband, local theater legend Michel Jaroschy. This South Austin gem is listed with Michelle Hendrix at Realty Austin for $800,000.
