Built in 2013, this two-story contemporary located in the master-planned Sol community, specifically designed for net-zero energy consumption and sustainability. Sol’s modern homes were designed by lauded local firm KRDB, which means the homes are stylish and forward-thinking.
Located in the Johnston Terrace neighborhood of East Austin, the 1,671-foot house is made of stucco and steel (another KRDB design trademark), and thoughtful design specifically suited to Sol, one of the country’s first developments designed to have net-zero energy capability. The house has three bedrooms and two and a half bedrooms, as well as featuring a wrap-around exterior upstairs deck, large interior spaces, and a double-height floating stairwell.
The home also features custom finishes including integral stucco, built-in office-space cabinets, and banks of skylights. The yard is xeriscaped and features steel-and-cedar pergolas as well as large concrete pavers, which fit the setting well.
