The modern farmhouse trend might have peaked on the upper end of the market, but the style can work really well for lower- (though not necessarily low-) cost urban infill in older neighborhoods.
This new build in Central East Austin certainly fills the bill for convenience to downtown and Eastside access, with a high walkability score and a fairly easy bike ride to most places in the area.
The home, designed by local firm un.box studio, also has a number of green features, including Nest climate control, high-performance insulation, and the like. Measuring 1978 square feet, it has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
The smart floor plan, high-quality materials and workmanship, and light-harvesting features make it feel modern and clean. It features stained concrete and eucalyptus floors, custom cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless appliances, and high-end finishes and features as well.
The best part, though, is the lovely, cozy outdoor living space with nicely designed privacy fence, built-in seating, and twinkly lights over the patio.
