There’s certainly no dearth of renovated midcentury-modern homes in Austin—especially if one stretches that stylistic designation. This one-story house in Tarrytown is one of the smaller number of those renovations that, for the most part, get it right.
Built in 1947, the 1,821-square-foot home has three bedrooms and the proverbial pink-tiled bathroom (just one, and looking good), as well as a detached storage space that was added later.
The several living spaces and bedrooms retain or reproduce such features as large and clerestory windows that bring in light and open to the private backyard, which looks somehow lush, despite the lack of grass (in this case, a very good thing). The home also has stone, hard tile, and wood floors, along with a stacked-stone fireplace that echoes the exterior nicely.
