Though located in the central-city Bouldin Creek neighborhood, this farmhouse-style home reads more “classic” than “modern.” The latter is a style that’s been popular, and perhaps overdone, in the past few years, but this gorgeous house gets it right,
Designed by Austin architect Steve Zagorski, the 2,750-square-foot house is also offers refreshing visual relief from the minimalist-leaning contemporaries that have been popping up in South Austin for a while now.
Landscaped by Mark Word, it rests—behind a picket fence!—on a leafy lot with three huge heritage Live Oaks and features a giant wraparound porch for enjoying them.
Inside, the home is airy, bright, and functional, with soaring ceilings and an open floor plan. It features four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms as well as two living areas, a study with built-in shelves and French doors, a gas fireplace, a beamed ceiling and whitewashed “barn-style” walls in the great room, and many more custom and lovely details.
