The mish-mash of industrial, modern, and farmhouse style on this home’s facade doesn’t show off its best features, though it’s certainly more than tolerable. Rather, it’s the interiors and the surrounding property that make it distinctive and a bit enchanting.
Designed by longtime Austin favorite and dedicated modernist Steve Zagorski, the 3,013-square-foot, two-story home is compact by suburban standards but packs a lot of punch in its highly central Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Located on a lot that measures more than a quarter of an acre, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom house features large, sliding glass walls, white oak cabinets and Carrara marble counters in the kitchen and master bathroom, and white oak hardwood floors throughout.
The kitchen also features Thermador appliances, and there’s a mod, 60-inch linear fireplace in the main living area. Outside, there’s a private, fenced yard with room for entertaining as well as an adorable, forested path with a stone half-wall that borders Bouldin Creek.
