Things we love about this property crush:

This house might look simplistic from the outside—with a sleek white exterior and pretty yellow porch swing—but the inside has a whole lot going on.

The East Austin home was first built in 1900, and still features the original structure, long-leaf pine wood flooring, and wood-beamed ceilings. The spacious living area can fulfill all your art-filled Austin fantasies with loads of space for lounging and dining (and gallery walls, naturally). A dining area leads to a kitchen with funky backsplash tiling and terra cotta floors. The custom details are offset nicely by modern appliances, including a double oven. There’s even a second den in the back that’s ideal for a media room. Two bedrooms complete the downstairs, along with one and a half baths—all with pops of tiling that surprise and delight.

A funky spiral staircase leads to a master retreat with a sitting area, loft space, and downtown views.

Finally, the large outdoor space boasts a back deck that feels like the perfect spot for sipping palomas on those warm Texas evenings.
