Set back from street on a lot that showcases a sprawling oak tree, this stunning home is designed in a way that allows privacy, while its location puts it a block or so from a dense cluster of popular dining spots on South First Street.
The 2,583-square-foot home, located in the South Austin’s sought-after Bouldin Creek neighborhood, has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as an office. Designed by North Arrow Studio, perhaps best known for its commercial buildings such as Container Bar in the Rainey neighborhood and the Violet Crown Cinema downtown, the multilevel home uses its sleek, contemporary form to maximize the benefits of its site.
Glass walls and large, open spaces throughout bring in natural light, while multiple outdoor living areas—including a rooftop balcony with downtown views—allow easy movement between indoors and out. At the same time, wood floors and paneling soften the clean-lined structure, making the interiors warm and inviting.
The open kitchen and living room are tied together with wood floors and paneling, red brick walls, and dark gray accents.
The motifs repeat in the master suite upstairs.
Outdoor entertainment areas include multiple patios and a rooftop deck with downtown views.
