Tucked away on South Fifth Street is a charming midcentury modern home owned by local style icon Sarah Ellison Lewis. Lewis, a creative digital content strategist with clients ranging from Lucky magazine to Barney’s New York, splits her time between the Big Apple and Austin with her companies Bootleg Market and the Bootleg Airstream.

It should come as no surprise then that her South Austin home, which recently hit the market, screams style. The simple, clean design of the open floor plan — combined with natural woods and vintage appliances — creates a contemporary look within a historic home.

The house is a total of 1,288 square feet, with three bedrooms and two full baths. Vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting brighten the space, while smooth textured walls, cork kitchen floors, midcentury finishes, and antique touches add to the home’s allure.

Built in 1956, the exterior features a sandstone façade, a double front door, an open porch, and uncovered patio. Root Design put over $50,000 into the landscape that highlights a xeriscaped layout and private yard. Secluded with a greenbelt view, the property is walking distance to a park, tennis courts, and South Lamar hot spots.

The cool abode at 2803 S. Fifth St. is listed with Den Property Group for $579,000.
