This Bouldin contemporary both stands out for the fine quality of its design—by Nana Kim of 9 Square Studio—and, due that same quality and smart layout, blends well with the eclectic neighborhood surrounding it.
Located in a sweet spot of South Austin, it’s just a couple of blocks from South First Street, where entertainment spots, restaurants, and shopping options continue to multiply.
It—or at least its kitchen—is also famous, in its way; it’s where the award-winning Love & Lemons cookbook and blog were born.
The frame home features plenty of glass, including clerestory windows right below many of its high ceilings on the second floor. Measuring 2,663 square feet, the two-story home has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
A large, open living and kitchen area look out on to a private courtyard with a pool, cabana, hot tub, and covered deck and entertaining areas. Upstairs is currently an office, which looks to be convertible to a bedroom or for some other purpose, as well as a laundry room.
