This small South Austin home might not make the best argument for the idea of accessory dwelling units as one of the city’s density tools that will help bring house price is down, but it certainly testifies to the fact that such dwellings can look great.
Designed in 2015 by Moore Tate, the local design-build and realty firm that has made a mark on Austin with its simple, sophisticated sensibilities, the 850-square-foot, one-story home is technically a detached condo that has has two bedrooms and two bathrooms but no HOA fees.
A glass wall looks out on a small but inviting backyard with medium-sized trees, entertainment areas, including a covered patio, that are ready to go, and strategic, drought-friendly landscaping. It’s located the Galindo neighborhood, a convenient but still low-key area, especially because the home is on a cul-de-sac. It comes with two reserved parking spaces.
