Combining the charm of a Texas farmhouse with the convenience of downtown proximity, this historic home is a truly one-of-a-kind property. Built in 1895, the house is an Austin historical landmark located on East Eighth Street.

Boasting a ton of character only a house that has withstood the test of time can embody, the home has been carefully restored to keep its original features with modern updates. Walking distance to the French Legation Museum, Texas State Cemetery, and the hot East Sixth Street district, the 78702 home is a quiet escape only steps away from restaurants, shops, entertainment, and more.

Sitting on nearly one-third of an acre with cascading greenery and a canopy of trees, the backyard features a lush private garden and a 1930s-style fishpond. Inside you’ll find three enchanting bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 11.5-foot ceilings. Elements from when it was built include the front door, fret work, pine floors, transoms, and hardware.

The master suite incorporates original trim with restored beadboard walls and ceiling, while the master bath showcases an oversized marble vessel sink and shower floor with polished nickel fixtures. Imagine yourself preparing a home-cooked meal in the sprawling kitchen and its stunning custom wood cabinets, farmhouse sink, and granite countertops.

1011 E. Eighth St. is listed with agent Scott Hayes of Realty Austin. It is a 1,916-sqaure-foot home and is on the market for $1,400,000.
