The lowdown: Designed by Antenora Architects, this contemporary house was built to be much more than just a place of residence. It was intended to serve as a retreat, with light-filled living spaces, a flexible layout, and an undeniable sense of peace. The design features a Zen courtyard — complete with the soothing sounds of a trickling fountain — sweeping views of Austin from the rooftop deck, and a relaxing front porch with a swing. Don't let the "retreat feel" fool you though; the house is ideally located close to the city's best restaurants, shopping, and music venues on South Congress, plus other hot spots on South First.
This home is on the market with Kris Sorenson-Hyatt of Eva Street Properties and Lori Galloway of Kuper Sotheby's International Realty. Click here to see more photos, details, and to contact the agents.
