Every once in a while, it seems like we have a run on midcentury-modern houses on the market. Most are in the expected neighborhoods (Barton HIlls, Northwest Hills, Zilker, and more modest ones that pop up in Crestview and surrounding areas). This appears to be a week for just such a phenomenon—one with a very specific location.
Earlier this week, we featured a home in Zilker, designed by legendary local architect/developer A.D. Stenger. Now this large, stone beauty has popped up not only in the same neighborhood but on the same street, Bluebonnet Lane. The Stenger has the advantage of added square footage and contemporary updates. This one, although it does have some updates (and may need others), will likely appeal to those who value original midcentury elements and floor plans—wood paneling, built-ins, exposed ceiling beams, clerestory windows, and mod-looking built-ins.
At 2,799 square feet with a split-level floor plan, the home is larger than many of its period, but it does not appear to have had any later additions. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as an expansive great room overlooking a pool and green, fenced yard.
