We seem to have a bumper crop of gorgeous midcentury modern homes on the local market right now, as befits the season, and this 1965 home is a perfect example.

A single-story home located on almost half an acre on prestigious Scenic Drive, the house is thoughtfully sited among now-mature trees and not at all far from Lake Austin.

The house recently received a bold and beautiful interior redesign by longtime Austin-based favorite Fern Santini’s Adobe firm, which added fun and high-end details to the classic form. (Fun details that came with the original include a sunken conversation pit in front of the fireplace and requisite wet bar, among other items.)

As befits its vintage, the home features an open-style living plan looking out through wall-sized windows on to pool and patio. The Tarrytown home, larger than many Austin midcentury builds at 2,853 square feet, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The updated kitchen features a marble waterfall island along with the separate, aforementioned entertainment bar, and the remodel retains an appropriately airy, open feeling while deploying color and other elements of visual interest that keep it from veering into the overly spare.

The spacious master bathroom that includes a separate, walk-in steam shower and a closet with an additional study.

A second living area, separated from the main space at the end of a hallway, offers additional entertainment options.
