This mid-century modern abode is the epitome of laid-back Austin living. The property’s recent renovations focus on natural light ­— complete with a wall of windows in the kitchen and living area — making it a perfect fit for the sunbather in all of us. 

Built in 1949, the 2,556-square-foot home is a groovy, one-of-a-kind property in the heart of one of Austin’s hippest neighborhoods. The home’s backyard features a lush green space complete with ample patio space and a pool rivaling any boutique hotel in Austin.

The home’s hip, Hotel San Jose vibe gives this home major Austin cool points. Inside, an open floor plan, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms ensure there's enough space for your family and any visitors. Within walking distance of South Congress and a quick five-minute drive to downtown, the property’s location is ideal for the buyer who truly loves to live local.  

Cultivate your green thumb in the pergola or host friends in the charming casita. The home’s several outdoor areas give you plenty of options for parties, intimate cocktail hours or peaceful time to yourself.
