We featured this lovely midcentury home when it was on the market in August for $835,000. For reasons unknown, it was withdrawn shortly thereafter, but now it’s back, asking $15,000 more.
Located in the central Hancock neighborhood, the house was designed by the Austin-based Page architecture firm—one of the city’s oldest and most esteemed.
Founded in 1898 as Page Southerland Page, the company designed everything from downtown’s Littlefield Building to a United States embassy in Mexico City. The firm remains important and active in Austin and in many other cities today.
This particular residence was designed in 1951 by Louis Southerland, who also designed the nearby Hancock municipal golf course.
Sited on approximately half an acre along the banks of Waller Creek and surrounded by many mature oaks and elms, the home has been updated in a manner that highlights its original design.
The 1,909-square-foot house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and features oak flooring, period light fixtures, recessed lighting, views of Waller Creek, a fireplace, and abundant natural light.
The kitchen features a breakfast bar, natural stone countertops, and a pretty groovy vent fan.
It’s a study/office/media room to make midcentury fans swoon.
The floors are hardwood and hard tile throughout the home.
The home’s site measures approximately half an acre and looks out over Waller Creek.
