We saw this adorable home on Preservation Austin’s 2009 Atomic Tour and hung out as long as we could, pretending we lived there. (It was also featured on Blanton Museum Driving Tour and in Atomic Ranch magazine.)
Designed by prolific local modernist developer A.D. Stenger—some refer to him as “Austin’s Eichler,” although Stenger was an architect, not just a developer—and it’s in terrific shape.
Built in 1958, it has been meticulously preserved and has tons of original features, including window walls and a cut-stone fireplace, as well as period reproductions of the kitchen and bamboo floors.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home measures 1,501 square feet and is on a private lot with a drought-tolerant landscape and heritage oaks, within walking distance of Barton Springs.
There’s also a lovely patio and a cute box of a studio, made of redwood and glass, in the back, along with some more be-here-now features (new HVAC, Google FIber).
