2111 E 9th #1

I’m going to go ahead and call this bungalow remodel a success. They’ve clearly stuck to the KISS rules (keep it simple stupid) and managed to tastefully update this 1930’s home. I’m suspecting by the #1 designation there is a secondary structure going somewhere, but kudos to the developer for keeping the original home. More of this please!

1100 E 8th

Ok, so this one is clearly not modern. I grew up in a home that was also built in the 1890’s so there is a bit of nostalgia here for me, plus modernist or not you have to admit that this is a beautiful property. Plus who ever would have guessed that this was on the east side?

I’ve always thought that the SOL houses offer a great compromise of price, design and location. We have seen an increase in pricing as that location becomes better and better but they are still a good deal. As far as the design goes, I’d say it’s holding up great for a 7 year old home.

This will be a very interesting one to watch. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a very well done east Austin compound. Both the 1,600 sf main house and the 1,100 sf secondary house are well done, better than most in fact. The whole thing was actually for sale this spring for $850k (and didn't sell) so I don’t understand why the new price increase.
