Rosedale, a central Austin neighborhood that started out as a dairy farm, was developed in the 1940s. It’s known for its houses from that area as well as for those that came later, during the midcentury modern era. A style that it’s not particularly known for is modern minimalism.
This two-story stucco home, built in 1941 and located at 4417 Rosedale Avenue, isn’t exactly either (modern or minimalist), but it has been remodeled in a way that leans toward the unfussy, retains virtually no original features, and gives it a generally clean-lined look that’s unusual, in a good way, for the neighborhood.
The 2,410-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It goes big on the open plan downstairs, which culminates in sliding doors that lead to the deck and private backyard. It looks like one of the four bedrooms tallied in the listing is either a downstairs room that could be an office instead or an upstairs bonus room. It has wood and hard-tile floors, recessed lighting, stone countertops, and a detached garage. Betsy Gourley at Team West Real Estate holds the listing.
