Farnsworth Inspired, Modernist Architecture, Austin Home - OPEN SUNDAY 2-4

Here are some preview pictures of the newly offered 701 Mary modernist Austin home, located in Bouldin Creek neighborhood, 78704 zip code.

Inspired by Mies van der Rohe's 1951 Farnsworth house in Plano, Illinois, this modernist Austin home is clean and sleek with gleaming concrete floors, 12 foot ceilings, and loads of floor to ceiling windows that allow natural light to fill the entire home.


The open kitchen has stainless steel appliances, concrete counters, a subway tile back splash, and plentiful stainless steel cabinetry.


The Austin home also features an inviting interior courtyard, with a plush green grass floor, tall graceful palms, and towering bamboo. One wall of the interior courtyard is a soothing glass wall water feature. The current owner has created a seating area in the courtyard which is so inviting and zen, it nearly works as a 2nd living area.


At just over 2000 square feet, 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths, this modernist Austin home has a warm, liveable feel.


A creation of gifted Austin real estate developer Priscilla Glover of Urban Nature, Inc. - this resale Austin home is offered at $619,000. Not yet on the Austin MLS, you can contact me directly for more details or to make a viewing appointment. You can also visit the home's open house this Sunday, February 22nd, from 2-4.

This looks like fun... Contemporary but almost retro... the 60’s shine in this house. Noah Awl...
