It's hard to beat the location of this East Austin cottage. Situated at 1209 Salina St., the renovated gem is walking distance to top restaurants and bars — and only a bike ride away from Franklin Barbecue. 

Built in the 1930s, the cottage was taken down to the studs and updated with a fresh look that maximizes its small space. A bright living area with high ceilings opens to the kitchen — complete with breakfast bar, sleek cabinetry, modern tile, and stainless-steel appliances. There are two bedrooms, with new flooring and lots of natural light, and a bathroom featuring new modern fixtures.

The refreshed space is part of a three-condo regime, but you'd never guess it. It has no shared walls and, best of all, offers a huge yard with a deck for entertaining. New electrical, plumbing, HVAC, insulation, tankless hot water heater, and windows round out its perks. 

Listed by Katie Jackson of GoodLife Realty, the cottage was recently reduced to $324,900. See it for yourself during an open house on Sunday, December 13, from 1 to 4 pm.
