A new contemporary condo in the sought-after, central South Austin Bouldin Creek neighborhood is fab in a couple of ways. It’s fab, as in short for "fabulous," of course. It’s also designed by local firm For a Better Architecture (aka FAB), which consistently comes up with fresh approaches and gorgeous design for both residential and commercial properties around the city.
Comprising one side of a new, two-unit condo building, the home offers an open floor plan, high-end finishes, a lush back yard with mature trees, and alley access to garage parking.
The home is on a 10,000-plus-square-foot lot and measures 2,284 square feet. The two-story house has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms and large, light-harvesting windows in the treetops. The building’s two units create privacy with a back yard fence and use a connecting entry space for one of the homes that allows them to share no common walls.
