Chances are you know KRDB, the Austin-based design-development firm, especially if you frequent Austin’s Eastside. The firm’s first few residential projects were in the area, and it went on to collaborate with the Guadalupe Neighborhood Development Corporation on the SOL sustainable development community. It designed the Heywood Hotel, and one if the partners, Chris Krager, is responsible for Ma Modular, which creates affordable modern modular design.
The firm still takes on plenty of single-family residences, including this one on a corner lot in the rapidly transforming Holly neighborhood in East Austin, close to loads of new restaurants, the lake, farmer’s markets, and the like.
Built in 2002, it has soaring ceilings, lots of natural light, a gourmet kitchen, built-in walnut cabinetry, and in general sleek, modern finishes all around. It measures 2,614 square feet, and has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, in addition to a pool and casita that has served as a short-term rental.
The master bedroom, on the main level, has a bathroom with a double vanity, garden tub, and walk in shower, as well as a walk-in closet.
While the neighborhood where the home is located has been booming for a while, and is not far from pending multiuse projects that will transform it even more, we’ll be curious to see if this single-family home gets its asking price, as it’s well above what’s typical for the area.
The home’s casita has been an AirBnB but could also be a studio, long-term rental, guest quarters, or whatever else comes to mind.
