Southern-style Bryker Woods house is reinterpreted through a contemporary lens

This home located in the Bryker Woods subdivision of Old West Austin has a sort of unadorned Southern style, with a front porch and balcony/veranda running the width of the house, narrow French doors with matching screens, and plantation shutters. Built in 1929, the wood-frame house also features some characteristics of its vintage, including high ceilings, crown molding, and hardwood floors.

Although a recent remodel retained these features, it did so with a contemporary bent and, in some cases, went whole hog with those features. The two-story, 2,502-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms—two redone in a modern-tile-and-pebble fashion, one with fixtures and tile floors more in keeping with the original time period.

The home also has stainless appliances in the kitchen, a breakfast bar as well as a formal dining room, and a nice-sized, apparently working fireplace with a mantel that incorporates old and new in the living room.

Bedrooms on both floors feature plenty of windows and open on to decks or balconies.

In addition to the front balcony and porch, the home has a fenced yard, patio, and deck in the back, as well as a two-car garage.
