For sale: 3 bungalows on the market now in Austin

This two-home hideaway offers over 2,000 square feet while still having that cozy bungalow feel. (Compass)

Despite housing costs steadily hiking, it's still possible to find bungalows—from unassuming modest homes to opulent hideaways—around the Texas capital. a low house with no complete upper floor and a broad front porch


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:

4214 Avenue A | $549,000

The one-bathroom bungalow mixes old with new. (Compass)

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.

1170 Angelina Street, Unit A & B | $1,375,000

Across two homes, homeowners are free to customize this space to their wildest dreams. (Compass)

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.

2405 Westover Road | $1,950,000

The most glam of the three, this bungalow spreads across nearly 2,500 square feet and comes complete with a pool. (Compass)

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.
