Your dreams of hosting dazzling parties in a sweet spot beneath the oaks in South Austin could pretty much be met completely by this low-key but stunning house. The new-built modern, designed by MF Architecture, rests under a huge Live Oak on Lindell Street, steps from South Congress and South First streets.
The sleek design of the spacious, low-slung 4/3.5 is breathtaking at every turn, with lighting, design, and materials all enhancing the airy, open rooms. Such little touches as an oversized two-car garage with alley access and an electric-car plug-in outlet, all hidden from the street, give the design a practical aspect.
The capper, of course, is a 27-foot, floor-to-ceiling glass pocket door that opens the main room to the outdoor pool and yard, creating a great indoor/outdoor forum for entertaining.
