According to the listing, this mid-century beauty was one of the first in its neighborhood, a woodsy area in the western hills of the city that became a locus of the style and an enclave of UT professors and their ilk as the area developed.
The home seems mostly intact, if in need of some cosmetic improvements. The central living area that passes through glass walls to an equally sized outdoor patio is stunning and captures the essence of indoor-outdoor living that is a hallmark of the style.
Other classic features include long, stacked-stone indoor walls and fireplace, Japanese-style room dividers, and prominent ceiling beams and framing in the main areas of the house. The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It measures 1,660 square feet and rests on a quarter-acre lot with lovely mature shade trees and landscaping.
The home sale includes copious plans and drawings from the original architects, which makes sense, as buyers are likely to interested in the homes origins and details. Plus, they’re just fun to look at.
