Great opportunity! Check out this east Austin treasure located on Hamilton Ave a.k.a “Richard Overton Ave.” The seller is first cousin of Richard (their mothers were sisters) who is also a centenarian of 100 years old. Not only does the home have a ton of history, it also sits on an amazing lot with tons of potential! The home needs major renovation plus expansion/additions to capture the panoramic downtown views of the Frost Bank, Capital and UT Tower. If you look out the kitchen window, you’ll see downtown building tops, so imagine what a second level will reveal. This is a full renovation or a tear down to build new. The lot features alley access, corner lot, SF3 zoning, walkability, close proximity to downtown, restaurants, parks, etc. Home has a lot of charm and mid-century modern vibe to it with the decor and wood paneling. Keep the charm and add contemporary/modern elements will make this a one of a kind! This street especially has a great sense of community. Some neighbors have continued the tradition to hang out on the porch as Richard did. You’ll want to do the same at this home too! Bring your GC and /or architect when you visit to come up with a great design. No survey, as-is, Per TCAD lot is 45 X 120 about 5,400 SF. #richardoverton home is 12 houses down, which is in the process of becoming a museum.
