Southwest Austin house in country-like setting

low, one-story white brick house
4107 Alexandria Drive, Unit B
Via Redfin

This story was originally published on March 2, 2018, and has been corrected to reflect the property is a single-family home and not a freestanding condo, as we previously described it.

This very long home is located in the Maple Run neighborhood in Southwest Austin between MoPac and Brodie Lane, not all that far from Downtown, but the large lot, big trees, and surrounding area make it look fairly countrified.

The house has a mod-ranch vibe—sort of a bunkhouse/hacienda that’s been stripped down and remodeled in a Crate-&-Barrel-friendly style, like something one might find in Marfa. Built in 1967, it has low, long lines; a slate/imitation slate roof that mimics the red clay tile roofs found throughout the Southwest; and a row of windows that takes up more than half of the front of the structure.

The appealing but quirky design makes it not all surprising that the 2,640-square-foot home was originally a dairy barn on a larger ranch that has now been subdivided (the “Unit B” in its address refers to the fact that its on a subdivided lot, but it’s not a freestanding condo, as we previously described it). Now it’s privately situated on a gated lot that measures well over half an acre. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a couple of living areas, one of which is an enclosed sunroom that looks like it could alternate as a great studio or office.

The open kitchen features Carrara marble, a Wolf range, a wine refrigerator, and a built-in microwave.

An enclosed sunroom runs along the front of the house.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are off a long hall in the back of the house. The master suite has a walk-in closet, a double vanity, a full bathtub, and a walk-in shower.

The fenced yard features a large deck with a mosquito misting system and mature trees. Water comes from a private well. There are no HOA dues.
