It might have been a minute since a midcentury-modern home designed by local luminary Roland Gommel Roessner was for sale on the Austin market, but this one is well worth the wait.
Roessner, one of the city’s premier midcentury designers, taught at the University of Texas School of Architecture from 1948 to 1982. As many such professors do, he also had his own architectural practice. He was known for the artful balance of his designs, which navigate public and private space beautifully, as well for imbuing them with a regional feel without being literal about it.
The home in question is located on a quiet Rollingwood street, according to the listing (which also notes that the original architecture has been restored, for the most part, and a pool added). The 2,387-square-foot, one-story house is clad in brick all around, as well as featuring that exquisite modernist habit of continuing some of the exterior walls inside. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, in addition to loads of style and history.
