This Old Enfield home, which was built in 1960 and extensively remodeled in 2007 by longtime local architect fave Emily Little (now of Clayton & Little), sports an eclectic charm with a fair number decorative hits as well as a few misses. Though traditional in structure, it has some contemporary-looking roof, siding, and porch elements on its exterior and interior updates that speak to its year of origin—including some groovy, geometrical room dividers (a hit) and a diner-style kitchen counter and banquette (possibly a miss, or at least not for everyone).

The location—right on Enfield Road near MoPac—offers convenience, while its tree-covered corner lot means it has the luxury of a side-street driveway entrance that looks more private and less harried than that of many homes facing that busy road. The two-story, mostly brick-clad house is large, especially for the central city, at 3,145 square feet. It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as three living areas, two dining areas, and a . In addition to high ceilings and built-in bookcases, it features a number of custom details, including iron work the on stair rails and banister, antique schoolhouse doors, and a great deal of custom cabinetry.
