A sprawling compound on just over half an acre of land offers room for a kind of community living—but dismiss any notions of ramshackle communes or earthships. Designed by longtime, award-winning local firm Clayton & Little Architects, this connected set of homes is, first of all, in the popular and central Zilker neighborhood. Second, it’s sophisticated and contemporary, with sleek, understated style.
The brick-clad homes sit behind a gated courtyard and are connected; there’s a main house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a duplex with two bedrooms and one bathroom in one unit and one bedroom and one bathroom in the other, for a total of 3,808 square feet. All of the spaces feature walls of glass, light wells, and covered, screened porches.
The listing, at 1909 and 1911 Rabb Road, is held by Steven Baker of Tribe Realty Austin.
