Tucked under centuries-old oak trees surrounded by rose bushes and mature landscaping, this contemporary home blends surprisingly well with the more traditional elements of its site and its Galindo neighborhood—a quiet pocket of South Austin that is deceptively close to downtown and convenient to eateries, parks, music, shopping, and other points south.
Built in 2015, the house has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and measures 2,872 square feet. Its contemporary design is cool and crisp but remains inviting, comfortable, and family-friendly (it has big laundry room, for one thing). Large windows and glass doors bring in lots of filtered sunlight into expansive rooms, giving the whole space an airy, bright feel. The main level has a master’s suite with bonus room, giant walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom.
Outside, meanwhile, is an ironwood courtyard deck, privacy fence with electric driveway gate, and more great, landscaped places under the towering oaks.
