Neighborhood: Travis Heights
Square footage: 3,174
The lowdown: This classic brick two-story home, arguably one of the grandest in Travis Heights when it was first built in the 1940s, has not only been meticulously maintained but also recently updated — including adding a pool. A front porch on the first level overlooks Alta Vista Avenue, while the second-floor terrace offers views of the downtown Austin skyline. Charming features such as original wood flooring and arched doorways are complemented by upgrades such as new windows and mechanical systems. A private, fenced-in pool and patio area sits between the main house and its detached guest casita, with an outdoor shower already set up pool-side. There's also an unfinished, well-kept, 848-square-foot basement that's not included in total square feet.
