A++ location! Vintage charm blends with modern updates in this 1930s Hancock cottage. The smart, convenient floorplan provides 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 living areas, an open kitchen with connected dining area, and a dedicated utility room. Exposed ship lap walls, original long-leaf pine floors, and extra-tall baseboards are among the period-style design details found throughout the home. Recent roof. Recent interior and exterior paint. Recent foundation leveling with transferrable warranty. Low-maintenance Xeriscaped front yard. Expansive wood deck and large back yard with raised garden beds and ornamental trees. Outstanding location tucked away on a quiet section of 42nd street, just a block from Hancock Golf Course and the Commodore Perry Estate, and three blocks from Hyde Park hot spots including Antonelli’s Cheese, Hyde Park Bar & Grill, Quack’s, Asti’s, and Fresh Plus Grocery. Less than 2 miles to the University of Texas and 3 miles to downtown Austin. Zoned for Lee Elementary. Pre-inspected. Fantastic value and rare opportunity to own in this sought after location.
