This stunning home incorporates European- and midcentury-modern elements, contemporary features, and formal landscaping, but it blends influences and surroundings in a way that unmoors it from its particular time.
The property was listed in March, disappeared in January, and has returned at the same asking price.
Built in 2009, 5,462-square-foot home on 1.23 acres is described as a modern villa, a term that suits it. The formal grounds play with the villa concept, but they also suit Austin architect Brian Dillard's contemporary home design, which strategically incorporates bold color in a way that brings to mind such Mexican modernists as Luis Barragan and Ricardo Legorreta.
Organizing the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath house around a courtyard, meanwhile, echoes traditional Mexican architecture but adds an infinity pool to the mix, and terrazzo floors and murano light fixtures pick up the feel with an Italianate twist (as well as being beautiful).
The gated property also features a guest house with a wall of retractable glass, wet bar, and full bathroom.
