Enfield Road Efficiency Condo a ‘Rare Find’ in Central Austin

Share News:

Small but mighty! Listed at $279,000, this sparkling efficiency condo at 1603 Enfield Road in Austin packs a wallop! With one bedroom and one bathroom in 461 square feet, it offers an stellar investment in a hard-to-beat location.

Built in 2012, this condo sits in close proximity to downtown Austin, the University of Texas, prominent hospitals and popular restaurants. “It’s the perfect urban retreat,” said Realtor Ryan Rogers of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty. “Just two blocks walking distance to my personal favorites and Austin’s best: Fresh Plus, Galaxy Cafe and Cafe Medici.”

Enfield Road Condo a Smart Investment

And if the location fails to woo you, consider its attractive investment potential. With prices in the area increasing at an average of 11 percent year over year, this condo stands out as a smart move.

“This property is a great investment,” said Rogers. “A low HOA fee and efficient features make the monthly electric and HOA fee under $200. The opportunity for advanced technology, such as solar panels, is also available for installment. This is a perfect property for someone who wants to enjoy the accessibility of city life, but with a secluded and private setting.”

Upgrades Make an Urban Retreat

Upgrades to the unit include a new HVAC unit in 2019, plantation shutters, quartz counters, and all wood floors throughout. One-inch thick windows make this a quiet, urban retreat in the heart of Old Enfield! Take a look!

The bright, functional eat-in-kitchen *might* have benefited from some slightly different staging. Because, I think in this case, the room is actually bigger than it looks in the photo. Those chairs take up quite a bit of space.

Imagine that kitchen with a wheeled island and a pair of sleek counter-height stools in their place. And *chef’s kiss* perfection!

Just behind the door sits a washer and dryer, rounding things out nicely.

Cozy and Practical

The bedroom offers plenty of cozy and a nice little balcony with a tree-top view. While there’s no door, the bed area is tucked back from view, making it plenty private. Because it’s an efficiency apartment, there’s no separate living space. So if you happen to like watching TV in bed, you’re golden.

A perfectly bright and neutral bathroom completes the condo. I do love a white-tiled bathroom. I like my bathrooms to sparkle! And this one certainly sparkles. It also provides more storage, which in a small unit, is a deal maker.

Ooh, I love a sparky white bathroom!

      Yeah, it seems like Austin is headed the way of some bigger, badder cities. Your comment made me want to look up what my NYC apartment sold for after I moved out some years ago. Over two THOUSAND dollars a square foot. Makes that Austin efficiency seem downright bargain basement!
