This classic midcentury modern home is modestly sized by contemporary standards, but fans of the style are likely to find that appropriate—and to appreciate that it was designed and built by local legend A.D. Stenger. The architect and builder has been referred to as a “Hill Country Eichler,” as he designed and built scads of his modern-style homes in Austin during the 1950s and ‘60s—many in the Barton Hills neighborhood where this 1955 home is located.

According to the listing, the 1,240-square-foot home retains most of its original features and is in good condition. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom and features vaulted, beamed ceilings with clerestory windows in the living room as well as large windows throughout the back and bedrooms.

Modifications in done in 2012 include the installation of cork flooring, a kitchen counter top/breakfast bar, the front stone patio and surrounding stone flower beds, and a rear deck, as well as several home systems updates.

Hallways and bedrooms have built-in closets and drawers.

The home has a one-car carport as well as a deck and fenced backyard with access to a utility room.
