Historical Homes You’ll Love

From Taylor to Travis Heights and nearly everywhere in between, I’ve search and here are my top five homes currently on the market that were built from 1900 to 1930. These classic traditional colonial style homes are going to be sure to charm those that aren’t looking for the “modern” trends that we see everywhere we turn in the Austin area. I decided to keep this list to encompass price ranges below and above traditional “modern” homes, with one starting at $365,000 and reaching up to $2.7M.  As always, let me know if we can help you with a custom search to find the home that you are looking for.
