This brand-new duplex in South Austin offers impressive and thoughtful design as well as currently in-demand features. Unlike many new duplexes and freestanding condos, it looks as if careful attention was paid to allowing privacy without compromising the integrity of the design.
Each 2,117-square-foot, two-story unit has three 3 bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. There are large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, providing natural light throughout. The modern finish-out includes an open floor plan with high ceilings, stained concrete floors, sleek bathroom and kitchen finishes, and open stairs.
Constructed of stucco and steel, the units have separate, two-car carports with access from a side alley, and drought-tolerant landscaping has been installed on the large lot for easy maintenance. A partial wall divides the outdoor living space without obstructing the function and open feel of the yards, which also feature wooden decks.
The units can be bought separately or together.
