It’s not uncommon to drive through one of the many residential areas of Austin and finding yourself doing a double-take at a number of the houses you pass. There are some unique, beautiful, unconventional and downright weird homes in our city. For everyone who has ever thought “I’d like to live in a house like that,” this weekly feature is for you.
Once again, here are three homes loaded with character in the Austin area – all loaded with character and all on sale at various price ranges. Enjoy!

If you’ve got the cash and are looking for some flash, Lenape Trail seems to be the area to look in. Last week, we showcased a killer modern home on the side of the hill on the same street. This home doesn’t have as precarious a view, but it’s still pretty gorgeous none the less.
On top of the unique floor plan, this house from award winning builder Hennesse Homes was also built with energy conservation in mind. Factor that in with the low taxes and HOA fees (the neighborhood will be gated before too long) and this gorgeous home begins to look a lot more economical than its list price would indicate.
Unfortunately, there’s no virtual tour for this listing but the fine folks at Bramlett Residential would be more than happy to take you on a tour. Give them a call today.

One of the smaller homes we’ve featured over the weeks, this South Austin charmer packs a lot of character in such a small space. Built in 1932, this little cottage has been complete updated with new wiring, plumbing and foundation. With lots of beautiful foliage and a classic look, the backyard also features a patio and a storage building (gotta put those gardening tools somewhere, right?).
This property has recently been placed back on the market along with a reduced price. The sellers are very motivated and now is a great time to jump on this. Take the virtual tour or contact Spy Glass Realty for more information or to schedule a personal showing.

Now, that’s style. This gorgeous condo near the Greenbelt is part of Hillside, an award winning condo community. The kitchen includes black appliances and cabinets and offers plenty of space to move around. It’s close to schools, parks and shops yet is secluded enough to give you a feeling of comfort and privacy.
This is a home you’ll have to see in person to believe – mostly because they don’t have a virtual tour available. Head on over to the listing, though, and schedule an appointment with Dwell Realty and they’ll be more than happy to show you around.
We’ll be back again next week with more awesome Austin homes on the market. If you’re a real estate agent and would like to suggest one of your properties as part of our weekly feature, use the form below and lets us know!
