This treasure of a Tarrytown midcentury modern home will likely make fans of the genre swoon, as it retains many of its original features. That it was designed by the Austin firm Fehr & Granger might cause more extreme reactions in local fans.
Perhaps we exaggerate, but the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is quite the rare find. We did not learn of this particular listing from the reliably mod Creede Fitch's Skout realty site, but we that is where we found the best summation of Fehr & Granger (F&G) and its significant influence on Austin architecture in the late 1940s through the early 1960s. In addition to its stylish residences, the firm designed commercial projects, including the former Robert Mueller Airport, which received numerous design awards in its day and is now the site of the Mueller planned community.
The 2,247-square-foot home is in its "original condition," according to the listing, which looks to mean that it hasn't been heavily renovated or had its floor plan changed.
It is on a large lot with mature oaks and room for other structures. There is also a creepy-looking greenhouse we want to know more about.
