This stunning midcentury home is one of just a handful of units comprising the landmarked Cranfill Apartments—now condos—tucked away on a tree-lined street in West University. The complex was built in 1959 by architect Harwell Hamilton Harris, who served as dean of the UT architecture school and went on to work under modernist master Richard Neutra.

Spanning 1,394 square feet, the loft-like home features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a wall of windows revealing bamboo landscaping. The hardwood floors, bathroom finishes, and stainless steel kitchen appliances are all new, while the cabinetry, redwood siding, paint colors, and decorative light fixtures remain original, as Harris intended.

The sleek home at 1911 Cliff Street hit the market last fall as a $4,000 per month rental before cutting its price to $3,500 per month in January. It returned earlier this month as a for-sale offering, now listed for $770,000 by agent Brian Linder of Compass. HOA fees will run an additional $385 per month.
