Curbed Austin featured this gorgeous contemporary home in August, when it was priced at $1.55 million. Luxury home buyers who love excellent design might be happy to know that it has returned to the market with nothing changed (save some staging) but the price; it’s now asking $1.475 million.
The 2,583-square-foot home, located in the South Austin’s sought-after Bouldin Creek neighborhood, has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as an office. Built by locally based Abode Homes and designed by North Arrow Studio, perhaps best known for its commercial buildings such as Container Bar in the Rainey neighborhood and the Violet Crown Cinema downtown, the multilevel residence uses its sleek, contemporary form to maximize the benefits of its site.
Glass walls and large, open spaces throughout bring in natural light, while multiple outdoor living areas—including a rooftop balcony with downtown views—allow easy movement between indoors and out. At the same time, wood floors and paneling soften the clean-lined structure, making the interiors warm and inviting.
The home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Upstairs outdoor spaces offer views and shade from the lot’s mature oaks and other trees.
