It’s not clear if architect Alan Gonzalez Garcia specializes in distinctive, artful remodels of East Austin homes that tend to fall on the teensy side, but this is the second home with a connection to his Aguacate Studios we’ve seen in for sale in the past month.
This lovely, 526-square-foot residence has a more direct pedigree to Garcia, as he only recently restored and remodeled it. Drawing on “Marfa-style” design, according to the listing, Gonzalez completely gutted and reinvented the place (leaving the floors and plank ceilings intact), and it indeed possesses the rustic minimalism found so often in Far West Texas.
Pretty much everything inside the home is new but custom-made in a fashion that makes it seem timeless. The bathroom includes an open-air, walk-in shower, and the layout of the studio/office, kitchen, and living area is arranged with a momentum toward the back of the home, where there’s a hospitable, covered deck. Located at 1187 Coleto Street, the home is listed by Luisa Mauro of Marathon Real Estate.
