Save the wet bar, there’s nothing specific that makes this modern ranch-style home in West Lake Hills that’s particularly party-focused—it just looks like it was designed with some kind of fun in mind.

Designed in 1970 by Austin architect Leon Chandler, the one-story home has late midcentury-modern lines and a fitting stone facade. The 1,939-square-foot home’s interiors are more typical of their era and feature vaulted ceilings, a stacked-stone fireplace, an open-plan kitchen/living area, a “greenhouse room,” and wooden fixtures and wall coverings that split the difference.

The main living area of the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house has a wall of glass doors and clerestory windows leading to a large deck with a modern gabled roof overlooking its fenced, Hill Country backyard. The front of the home, with its curved driveway, covered carport entrance, and giant oaks, is pretty sweet as well.

Located at 601 Buckeye Trail, the home is listed by Preston Severn, Direct Realty.
