This home tucked into the woods in the Balcones Park neighborhood has been updated in a manner faithful to its original design. It was featured on the 2009 AIA tour of midcentury modern homes, and it’s a good example of how that style transitioned into its later 1960s and 1970s manifestations. The fact that its essence is intact is probably due largely that it has been owned and occupied by only one family since it was built.
The 3,122-square-foot house is designed as a classic split-level, and its front entrance is tucked behind dense Hill Country greenery. The main living areas and bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and sliding-glass glass doors that open it up to a deck and and filtered sunlight from the woodsy surrounds, which provide privacy as well as scenery. If that’s not enough wildlife for the new owner, Bright Leaf Preserve starts conveniently right across the street.
The master suite has a unique, open layout as well as a stainless garden tub and double vanity and an office/study area.
