Updated 1959 home with essential bones

Barton Hills home
Via Twelve Rivers Realty

It seems we are awash in midcentury-modern homes this month, although our experience of them must be virtual for the moment. The listing for this one-story number in Barton Hills also indicates that it was an A.D. Stenger build—although the location and some of the details would be “unusual” for the midcentury master, according to modernism expert Creede Fitch—which would make it the second to hit the market this month (also the second with a $1 million asking price, but who’s counting?).

Whatever the case, it’s a groovy design, well updated and/or well-kept, even if the furniture and staging are a bit on the nose. Built in 1959, the one-story home is clad in in stone and wood and measures 1,572 square feet. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a fireplace and bamboo, terrazzo, and vinyl tile floors.

Large picture windows look out on a big, multilevel deck in the backyard, which has views of the Barton Creek greenbelt. The property is listed at $999,900 by Twelve Rivers Realty, and the address is currently undisclosed.
