Architecture & Design of Central Texas
“Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context – a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.”

That is a mistake on the listing to say this is a teardown, right? Because it looks like it’s in perfect shape!

I think that is simply Zillow and their usual outdated info. The house was built in 2011 but all the data in the info below is from 2010.
However, not sure what the full story is on this one. It isn’t in the MLS or on the realtor website.

They leveled that house a year or so back and have been building on it. I live a couple of blocks away. Its fairly unattractive from the street for one of the highest valuations in Bouldin.
Its also 2 homes off commercial, which seems pretty close for what amounts to a million dollar home.

This is another Spaller-Glover project, the people who did the “Bouldin Castle” and the Marlin House on Live Oak. Love it or hate it, at least these people are trying to stretch the design language in Austin in a way that most architects don’t seem to get. Maybe it’s a bit unschooled but I like the quirkiness of their projects. I think these will stand the test of time, from a design standpoint, much better than all the boxy “moderns” all over Central Austin (construction…not so sure).
