Gorgeous midcentury modern in Balcones Park asks $999K

1965 home designed by UT architecture professor Roland Roessner

Everything’s coming up midcentury on the Austin home sales market these days. This Balcones Park beauty, designed in 1965 by UT architecture professor Roland Roessner, is the latest we’ve seen, and it’s a stunner.

The 2,938-square-foot, split-level home has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. It has had only one owner, and it looks to be in impeccable shape. They might be too ornate or fussy for some, but we love the cutout door details, wallpaper, and, especially the spiral staircase.

Located in hilly and central Balcones Park, the home doesn’t have views to speak of, but it’s nestled in mature trees and other foliage, with a focus on patios, decks, and the pool to provide that indoor-outdoor thing so many modernists were into.
