These bungalows, defined as a low house with no complete upper floor and a broad front porch, may look small, but don't write them off: there are often plenty of secrets hidden inside.
Here are three different bungalows that on the market in Austin:
This centennial treasure is a trip back in time to a younger Austin and has held onto the features that make it unique—wavy glass windows, beadboard ceilings, pinewood flooring and plenty of natural light.
A pleasant butter-yellow exterior sets a sunny tone for the rest of the Hyde Park house, which comes with two bedrooms and one bathroom across an unpretentious 832 square feet. A petite living room gives way into a kitchen that embraces southwestern vibes with saltillo tile floor and natural wooden cabinets. French doors in the kitchen lead to a raised deck in a large backyard, perfect for a springtime garden party.
This house was updated with a new steel pier foundation and stucco skirt in 2015, a new hot water heater and stove in 2020 and will have a new roof by this month.

Though 1170 Angelina Street has been updated since it was built in 1910, the two homes that sit on the lot seamlessly integrate the charming historic features that still remain.
With four bedrooms and three bathrooms across two houses on the property, altogether the homes span 2,104 square feet and boast even more when you count the 9,365-square-foot lot they sit on.
Inside, the East Austin-nestled home's retro wood paneling fits with the green space surrounding the homes and the vintage cabinets are back in style. The beauty in this home is the opportunity it presents to make it all your own—maybe you use the smaller house as a studio, rent it out, add a pool or even open a bed and breakfast.

In the heart of quiet, cozy Tarrytown, 2405 Westover Road is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow that carries over the 1950s charm it was built with.
After you park in the covered carport, stop and admire the resort-style backyard complete with an outdoor kitchen, lounge space, putting green, saltwater pool and hot tub. The interiors of the house are modestly spacious at 2,447 square feet and designed with readers in mind—built-in shelves line a wall in the living room to show off your collection of tomes.
The home has a host of rustic, yet modern finishes: solid wooden doors, refinished hardwood floors, a gas log fireplace, marble bathroom counters and massive walk-in closets for all your dress-up dreams.

Despite a 2-0 deficit, there was a pot of gold for Austin FC after all as it celebrated its annual Pride Night with rainbows and a 2-2 comeback draw to FC Dallas Saturday night.
After three FC Dallas losses last season, the Dallas derby draw marks the first time Austin FC has tied against its Copa Texas rival. Austin continues to edge over FC Dallas as it sits at 3rd in the MLS West.
Here are the biggest takeaways from the match:
A somber start
Decked out in colorful hues for LBGTQ+ Pride, Verde fans started the match on a somber note as they held up banners to take a stand against gun violence before the match.
As the national anthem began, fans held up banners with the names of each child that was killed in the Uvalde school shooting and a plea to "end gun violence."
The supporters' section was also dotted with Pride flags and a "Bans off Our Bodies" banner in protest of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
FC Dallas earns a 2-0 lead
That sober tone continued onto the pitch. With midfielder Daniel Pereira's absence due to a red card, the Verde and Black lost two goals to FC Dallas by the 70th minute of play.
FC Dallas played it sneaky for the first half of the match, giving Austin FC plenty of room to hold possession as it waited to strike on a Verde error. That mentality proved dangerous for Austin as Dallas' Paul Arriola took advantage of Brad Stuver's deflection to score the first goal of the night in the 57th minute of play.
Dallas struck once more as Brandon Servant pushed past the Verde line to score the second goal of the match.
Austin FC strikes back
But energy quickly returned to Austin's favor thanks to Designated Player Sebastian Driussi, who scooted past several FC Dallas defenders alongside Moussa Djitte to snag an unlikely first goal for Austin.
A full Verde comeback
Austin's subs proved deadly as momentum returned to the home team toward the end of the match. A well-placed cross from Nick Lima—and a diving header from a fresh-legged Danny Hoesen—helped the team secure the draw with a second Verde goal in the 84th minute of play.
Hoesen, who was Austin's first starting striker last season, has now scored two goals with the team after a yearlong injury stuck him on the bench.

Hours following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that guaranteed a constitutional right to an abortion, on Friday, about 1,000 people gathered in Republic Square with signs calling for change.
The rally, organized by the group Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights Texas, started at the federal courthouse on Republic Square on Friday at 5 p.m. before the crowd marched to the Texas Capitol. More protests are expected to ensue over the weekend.
People showed up with all types of signs like Mindy Moffa holding up, "Keep your filthy laws off my silky drawers."
Austin joined cities across the country that saw protests for a women's right to an abortion after the ruling.
According to a recent UT poll, 78% of Texas voters support abortion access in most cases.
Sabrina Talghade and Sofia Pellegrini held up signs directed at Texas laws. A Texas trigger law will ban all abortions from the moment of fertilization, starting 30 days after the ruling. When state legislators passed the trigger law last summer, it also passed laws for more protection of firearms, including the right to open carry without a permit.
