In addition to being in a prime location, two blocks from South Congress Avenue in sought-after South Austin neighborhood darling Travis Heights, this new home pulls off the difficult feat of rendering the Scandinavian-influenced modern farmhouse style in a dramatic and refreshing manner.

Built by Urban ATX and designed by local firm Davey McEathron Architecture, the three-story house is constructed of stucco, metal, and Hardiplank-style siding that has been painted or stained in a way that adds some gravitas to the exteriors.

The home’s tall, vaulted ceilings and expansive windows emphasize verticality and spaciousness (it contains 3,246 square feet in total). There are, of course, high-end finishes throughout, including some impressive custom walnut cabinetry and hand-painted clay and cement tile from Mexico and Morocco. There are also top-of-the-line appliances, plumbing, and lighting fixture. The yard features the requisite pool and patio, and it looks like there’s an ample balcony in front as well.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 508 Leland Street is listed by Spyglass Realty.
