Homes in Austin

There is a wide variety of homes on the Austin real estate market. Character homes, built in the late 1800s, are famous in the city. Homes in the historic Hyde Park district are part of an annual tour, and one of them was recently featured on PBS's This Old House. As major development in the urban core began in the 1940s, many of the homes are cute, single-family bungalows. The architecture of the city is like a metaphor for its culture: old meets new. Victorian homes, many converted into businesses, stand side by side with the glass and steel of modern high rises.

Austin Real Estate

Close to work, shopping, restaurants, theaters, live music venues, parks and bike trails, the easy living offered by a loft or condo is hard to resist. This is probably why the downtown Austin real estate market has boomed in the last decade.

Lofts offer open, airy suites with an artistic flair. Some have a second level, a mezzanine, usually used for a bedroom. Hardwood floors are common, though some have concrete flooring, described by one loft-dweller as more warm and comfortable than she'd expected. Most lofts have little finishing besides a bathroom and open kitchen at one end. This gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with the interior, or leave it raw, with brick walls and ducts exposed. Loft-dwellers often cite the sense of peace that comes from living in such an open environment, with floor to ceiling windows — it's like enjoying the outside environment in the comfort of your own home.

If a loft isn't your style, there are plenty of traditional condos in downtown Austin. Many feature private balconies, a pool, a fitness room, high-end finishing details and quality appliances. If a downtown lifestyle is for you, don't hesitate to contact us to find your Austin home today.
