Minimalist Old West Austin condo wants $1.05M

Mod detached home on wooded lot

Two story white stucco house with flat roof and extended, flat porch roof covering first floor patio
1305 West 29th Street Unit A
Via Berkshire Hathaway Texas Realty

Perched just up the street from the historic Bohn House, easily Austin’s best example of an Art Moderne residence, this two-story, stucco home was built in 2008 but harks back stylistically to International Style minimalism, which preceded and influenced the Moderne style. On the other hand, as modernist comrade Creede Fitch pointed out, it looks younger than its decade-plus age. It’s also nicely proportioned in a way that makes it stand out from most of it contemporary peers.

Set back from the street on a leafy Old West Austin lot, the 2,720-square-foot, two-story home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has limestone and wood floors (as well as carpeted bedrooms), high ceilings, skylights, recessed lighting, and pocket doors that all add to the light, streamlined effect.

The private courtyard has updated landscaping and a covered patio as well a set of tiered spaces for entertaining. HOA fees are $425 per month. The listing is held by Berkshire Hathaway Texas Realty.
