Description

Own a piece of Austin Music history with this adorable Classic Bouldin Bungalow! This 1930's bungalow was once owned by "Concho", a well known neighbor here in Bouldin who grew up in this home. Concho was also a dear friend to Austin's revered singer/songwriter Blaze Foley. Blaze's life ended all too shortly when he was shot and killed in the front yard of Concho's home in 1989. Ethan Hawke made a film about Blaze's life, you can also find many articles online and in Texas Monthly about the little known singer/songwriter. Kevin Triplett puts it best: "Blaze Foley, part of the "Music Outlaw" scene in Texas, lived a short life full of mystery and whimsical freedom. A self taught musician, his songs have been covered by Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams and Kings of Leon have written tribute songs to Blaze" Many of these classic Bouldin homes are being torn down to build new luxury homes. This is your chance to own a beautiful 1930's piece of Austin history. A 2 bedroom, one Bath in classic shot-gun style features a large all wood screened in porch, a separate carport with shed and a large kitchen along with a laundry area. The original floors are in great shape and all windows have original antique glass. The home was updated with central heating and cooling in the 90's. HVAC was replaced in 2018. This location cannot be beat! Walkable to coffee shops, restaurants and shopping along South First and South Congress. Elizabeth St., Dolce Neve, Patisserie, Thai Fresh, Lady Bird lake, Bouldin Creek Cafe, Soup Peddler to name a few. Bouldin also has a neighborhood library and exemplary schools. With easy access to 35, Mopac and Ben White, ABIA is a quick 20 mins away and Downtown is 10! This location is true 78704 living!
