There is just something about modern homes and swimming pools that go so well together. Finding a modern home in Austin for under $400k can be a challenge to say the least, but an architect designed home with a pool for $360,000, that's almost unheard of. But here it is:Read More
If you know Agave, you already know that the neighborhood is a one of a kind. There is nowhere else in Austin where you can find an entire community of well designed modern homes at such a good price point.
I'm super excited to give a sneak peek of my newest listing coming soon in Agave. Among all those great houses there is only one with a pool, and it will be for sale early next week. It's a pretty great pool too. The kind you would want to throw a summertime soiree at or film a commercial. The rest of the house doesn't disappoint either. Designed by Earl Swisher of the Lawrence Group it has a fantastic layout with an open kitchen / living room area that makes it perfect for entertaining and has the added bonus of some breathtaking views.Read More
A home is so much more than just four walls and a roof. It's a place where you carve out your little space in this world and fill it full of memories. It's where you return at the end of a work day or the end of an adventure. It's where friends meet, glasses clink and laughter comes easy. Where you choose to carve out that space is one the biggest choices we make in life.
This is the first in many future posts that peels back the curtains and takes a peek inside not just someone's space, but someone's life. This one happens to be inside the home for sale at 5413 Agatha in Agave, where the adorable couple that lives there have managed to create a place that truly represents them and their lives. The next chapter in their life is taking them away from this fine city. What would your life look like in their space?Read More

If you have been following me for a while, by now you have surely heard me rave about Agave. If you are new here, let me summarize. Agave truly is Austin's only modern neighborhood. Sure there are pockets of modern homes in other parts of the city, but here you can walk for blocks and only see modern homes. In 50 years people will look at Agave like we do Eichler neighborhoods now. The homes are all amazing, architect designed, and best of all affordable. Located just 6 miles from downtown, or even better a short, easy (no traffic) 10 min drive to all the good stuff on the east side.Read More
If you are looking for a modern home at an affordable price, it's hard to beat Agave. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of turn over out there, so that means inventory can be a bit limited, until now. If y'all remember, there are lots of vacant lots out at Agave. The original developer has financial issues, so those lot have been held by the bank until recently. Now a new developer has stepped up and is getting ready to break ground on a new round of homes. The first 6 should begin construction in the next month or so, and depending on sales hopefully there will be many more to follow. There are still nearly 200 empty lots out thereRead More
Today I'm sharing a sneak peek of my new listing that is dropping tomorrow. Hopefully by now you know how much I love the Agave Neighborhood, so I'm delighted to be listing this amazing 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home designed by Emily Little.
This little gem has a little bit of everything you need. The ground floor features a open floor plan kitchen and living room that opens up to an amazing outdoor patio. The main floor bedroom would work equally well for either an office or bedroom. The living room space is flooded with light from all the windows in the double height room. Upstairs features two extra bedroom, one with en suite bathroom. The catwalk that wraps around two sides of the living room space ensure that each bedroom feels separate and private.Read More
This week I feature a home in Agave on my Austin Modern Homes blog. The pictures were honestly pretty lousy, and it was hard to even get a feeling for the layout of the house, but you know what? I know it's a cool house. Why? Because pretty much all the houses out there are cool. Sure there are some that are better than others, but all of them are solid. Thinking about this got me motivated to add my second neighborhood guide, Agave. While the heyday for Agave was a few years ago when development and press was still going strong, great things are coming in the future. Additional lots that have been bank owned have now been sold to a developer, and I've go fingers crossed for lots of great new houses being built out there.Read More
If you are looking for a reasonably priced (many in the $200-$300 range) modern home in Austin, in a neighborhood full of kick ass people, it's pretty hard to beat Agave. That being said, not all homes in the neighborhood are equal. Good modern is more than just a look, it's the marriage of form and function. This house at 5349 Agatha Circle manages to check both of those boxes. The interior space flows well, and it thoughtfully put together. The bonus is over 1,000 square feet of outdoor deck space just waiting for you and your friends and a few of your favorite drinks.
