We don't see property like this in Midtown very often. Which is why this rare opportunity is already UNDER CONTRACT! The owners and I put together a strategy that started back in December. They executed on the touchup items and our amazing stager Brian David Design put on the finishing touches to really showcase this property. Hats off to Travis at Twist Tours for years of incredible photography that captures the best of my listings, but doesn't over promise!



This was a great opportunity for someone to live in what appears to be an Uber cute original bungalow in Crestview, but is actually a well designed duplex + detached apartment with versatile options. The main structure is a duplex consisting of a 2/1 front unit (~ 1100 SF) and 1/1 back unit (~ 850 SF). Then a separate 1/1 apartment - garage conversion (~ 625 SF) with full kitchen / bath.


The current owners have lived in the front 2bed / 1bath portion of the duplex. They've made valuable updates from a newer roof, energy efficient windows, to a recent hvac and duct work (additional improvements include copper supply lines, updated sewer line and electrical panel). Buyers will find beautiful wood floors throughout the main living and bedrooms. The kitchen cabinets were recently painted + a new range in the past 6 months. The blue bath tile maintains original character and this unit has its own laundry room with w/d connections.


There is minimal shared wall with the back unit, and a side driveway that carries you around to the private entrance . We love many of the MCM features (olive green stove and vent hood), and the luxury vinyl planks compliment the modern look and allows for easy maintenance. This unit also has it's own laundry room and oversized bedroom with built-in work station PLUS sliding glass door for added sunlight and access to the back patio.


Then you have the garage which was converted into a 1/1 apartment (by a previous owner) with a full kitchen / bath and has laminate flooring throughout. Use this as a home office, guest quarters or a mid term rental for those traveling to Austin for work projects. Such a great option for the buyer looking to offset their mortgage, or investor looking for strong rental income in various forms.

Hello John - it's easy to see the appeal of this Crestview neighborhood home in Austin.  Obviously, it made a big first impression for the buyer who stepped forward with an offer the seller could accept.  Good luck as closing day approaches.
