If you left off landscaping on this house for too long, it’s possible you might have to do some bushwhacking to reach it again. That’s how much foliage it’s nestled in; it’s also surrounded and already half-hidden by tall, mature shade trees.
Given Austin’s climate, those are all good things. Unlike much residential infill of fairly recent vintage, the three-story, 2,549-square-foot home really doesn’t seem to loom over the surrounding houses in its classic South Austin Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Still, its tiered levels manage to top off with a deck that has some nice downtown views.
The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Built in 2006, it was designed by local firm Antenora Architects, which appears to have brought some of the industrial leanings popular during that time to the table. The effect is restrained, though, and balanced by warm wood elements, the rustic exterior, and a lovely-looking screened-in porch in back.
The master suite encompasses the whole second floor and includes a study and living area as well as the master bathroom. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a living area on the third floor.
A roomy, screened-in porch acts as an outdoor living space on the ground floor, while up top there’s a Downtown-facing deck with nifty views.
