This home by European-influenced Austin design-build firm Spaller Glover presents an interesting blend of Tudor elements (with perhaps a Hill Country twist), modern farmhouse touches, and the light-bright contemporary thing (along with obligatory staging of vinyl records a very cool stereo cabinet to provide that vital sense of place).
Located in South Austin’s Zilker neighborhood, the 2013 build has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and measures 2,759 square feet. Its open floor plan, vast white walls, and high ceilings are balanced by homey touches including interior barn-style doors, dark wooden floors, elaborate (and beautiful) tile, and a clawfoot tub in one bathroom. Industrial, modern, and traditional, oversized light fixtures add to the eclectic mix.
The two-story home also has a stone veneer that’s somewhat unusual for Austin. There’s also a screened-in back porch with tiled floor, a fairly large back yard, and sweet picket fence with attractive but understated landscaping in front.
