The East Austin charmer at 1131 Poquito St. has boundless character and designer touches, and with a brand-new price, it's poised to sell. Originally listed for $685,000, the home was reduced to $600,000 on Wednesday.
Built in 1951, the abode was redesigned and expanded by acclaimed local architect Richard Weiss (known for his work on Alamo Drafthouse, Midnight Cowboy, Thai-Kun on Rock Rose, and more) and now features four bedrooms and three full baths. It boasts almost 2000 square feet and is deceptively larger than it appears from the street.
The first floor contains three bedrooms, an updated kitchen with a breakfast bar and center island, a covered patio, and reclaimed antique doors that add vintage charm. Fun wallpaper, interesting tile design, natural wood, and pops of color give this home — owned by a local designer — a one-of-a-kind feel.
The master suite occupies the entirety of the second level. The beautifully tiled bright bathroom features a zero-entry shower, freestanding tub, his-and-hers sinks, and a walk-in closet. There’s also a private balcony overlooking the home’s large backyard. Surrounded by arching trees, the view gives the sense that you’re living in a tree house.
Listed with Michelle Hendrix of Realty Austin, the home offers proximity to shopping and dining on East 11th Street, East Sixth Street’s entertainment offerings, and nearby green spaces like the Boggy Creek Greenbelt and Rosewood Neighborhood Park.
