Midcentury Modern Classic by Famed Austin Architect Asks $1.59M

Northwest Hills Barton Riley home with big views

The masters of midcentury architecture, as far as Austin goes, were few, but their houses seem to be on the market fairly frequently. The ever-reliable Creede FItch highlighted this one on his website recently; it’s an original by Barton RIley, a local contemporary of A.D. Stenger who designed both commercial and residential structures locally, and with no small amount of flair.

Like many of his contemporaries, Riley considered integrating a home with its site of paramount importance. This 2,396-square-foot house in the Balcones area of Northwest Hills is well-integrated with its natural environment and provides both privacy and spectacular views of UT and downtown.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home has received a few updates over the years, but the essential style of its 1956 design—and many of the original materials—are well intact.
