Everyday I go through all of the new listings on the MLS looking good design. I share all of my favorite new modern and mid century modern listings on my Austin Modern Homes blog. You can check them out there, or if you are looking for something specific, you can search for certain areas or styles on my modern home search page. Of course, if you need any help, feel free to contact me.
If you don't already know that East Riverside and Montopolis are the new east Austin (as far as investment goes) then you are already too late. This is a prime example of some of the gems that are over there. A few things on this one: yes, it needs updating. That's good because that means someone hasn't screwed it up yet. Besides that kitchen is still better than 90% of the spec/flipper kitchens. Second, yes $500k is a lot for east of I35, but let me ask you this where else can you get a 1/4 acre and a 2,500 sqft home within 5 minute of downtown, east Austin and South Congress for that price?
Details: 2,574 sqft, 3 Bed, 3 Bath
When I posted this house two years ago it was the thought of margaritas by the pool that won me over. I'd still be down for a margarita poolside, but those more practical may be interested in the low property tax rate, amazing schools and other such silly things.
Details: 3,406 sqft, 4 Bed, 5 Bath
It's been a minute since I've shared what I like to call a hill country modern home. It's a classic Texas vernacular (limestone, exposed beams, ranch style) with a modern twist. While it's never 100% my cup of tea, you have to admit it wouldn't suck to live there.
Details: 5,049 sqft, 5 Beds, 6 Bath
Design principle number one is K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid. Though the architecture on this one may err a bit on the simple side it's still so much better than those modern houses that over complicate everything with extra tiny windows and 4 different roof lines. (see the sadly defunkt @uglyaustinhouses for some prime examples)
