Large mid-century rancher FOR SALE in Austin Texas’ Hyde Park neighborhood on huge lot with towering trees. This home has real hardwood floors that could be refinished numerous times, unlike the modern engineered hardwoods and laminates of today. There are also glass door knobs and cool retro push button light switches. This vintage home was built in 1953 by Mr. and Mrs. Howard E. Johnson of Mrs. Johnsons Bakery which has been an Austin Texas institution serving Austinites bakery goods since 1948. Just look at this old 1960’s movie reel of Mrs. Johnson’s Bakery featured on the Texas Archive of the Moving Image. Go try some of today’s fare at Mrs. Johnsons Bakery at 4909 Airport Boulevard, Austin TX. This beautiful Hyde Park home has many features that reflect the Johnsons Swedish Heritage. The kitchen has knotty pine, solid wood cabinets and the kitchen tile is yellow and blue- the colors of the Swedish flag!

The Central Austin location off of Eilers and 45th is really close to everything including Downtown, UT, Hyde Park Grill, The Triangle, and other popular parks, shops, and cafes. Both Eilers and 48th are not through streets so there is not much traffic. There are two tiny pocket parks on Fairfield, the next street over, one on Eilers and the other on Evans.

Here’s a link to my Mid-Century Home Pinterest Board. It has some great Mid-Century furniture and decor ideas for the perfect accents for this cool retro home.
