If you love Eichler but want it newer, larger and I dare say better, check out Austin City Homes 5-acre masterpiece in the west Austin hill-country. An architect and I visited Dan at the house this last week for a private showing and I was flat-out impressed. The attention to detail, the craftsmanship, the materials sourcing, the lot orientation, the impeccable Eichler-ism, the lush landscaping, the proportioning and scaling, oh, and it has two outdoor showers...meee-ow. Here is a link to the listing: http://www.austinmodernliving.com/mls-6781079-13100-trails-end-78620-mcm-mid-century-home-austin.htm#1
While you need a booklet to go over all the construction, energy efficiency, features and design details of this wonderful home, here's a quickie over-view: massive 5-acre totally private lot with hill-country views and tons of room for a pool, floor to ceiling glass walls, 6 foot overhangs (see my additional photos, awesome!), elegant epay wood decking, 5 beds plus a guest casita, indoor and outdoor fireplace, game room and exercises room, office, acid sealed-waxed-and-honed concrete floors (hot), custom mahogany Eames-style cabinets, two-10-foot Golden Travertine kitchen islands (imported from Pluto I figure), double stainless steel ovens, 36″ gas downdraft cooktwalk-in pantry, breakfast nook, open-ultra-gourmet kitchen, galvalume standing seam metal double-lock roof, well, I could go on and on. What you should really know about this house is that it IS AVAILABLE and you can get it for under $200/sf...which, in Rollingwood, this house would easily be $3 to 4 million...EASY. Excellent MCM. I mentioned the two outdoor showers, right? At the time of this posting the house is available at just $650,000. Call me at 512-413-0870 for a showing, I have a ton of extra photos if you're interested.
