We can always count on real estate agent and modernism fan Creede Fitch to ferret out the niftiest midcentury homes on the market—like this Coldwell Banker listing for a classic by legendary architect, builder, and developer A.D. Stenger.
Built in 1950, the home is located on a cul-de-sac Barton Hills, one of the Austin neighborhoods where Stenger was a developer and where several of his original houses can be found. The one-story frame house looks like a bit of a fixer-upper, cosmetically speaking, but seems to have its original bones intact for the most part.
As with most Stenger-designed homes, there are some distinctive touches, such as the curvy built-ins. The 1,916-square-foot home has a large brick fireplace, wood floors, walls of windows and French doors, and its original Chambers stove, as well as some upgrades, especially on the energy-efficiency front.
The home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Positioned on a generous lot (0.39 acres), it’s surrounded by large shade trees and looks ripe for some new landscaping but still quite inviting.
