Stunning new modern above Austin’s Lady Bird Lake asks $2M

There is an elusive quality in its diverse, beautiful and reputable home decor that makes an Alterstudio house recognizable to anyone who has seen some. That they are almost always surprising in some way – each very different within a coherent aesthetic – is part of it. Dramatic, almost oversized vertical elements are another common thread – even if they are used in radically different ways. Then there is embedding structures in the construction site that look effortless and natural, but are undoubtedly finely crafted. Then there are the materials – always rich, varied and surprising, especially in combination.

Rollingwood Residence at 1 2707 Stratford Drive is the last property on a street of traditional houses – a modern outpost that connects to nature from its public spaces while using landscaping to create a private family space in the center of the home . With ubiquitous greenery on all sides, the house almost looks like it’s built into the landscape instead of just resting on it.

While living oaks and Egyptian desert limestone soils draw attention to the surrounding landscape, the finely detailed walnut shades and custom-made furniture, calacutta quartzite countertops and floating Venetian plaster (embedded in mica) and a waxed steel fireplace ground the interior. (What did we say about materials?)

The 2,913-square-foot, two-story home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms – including upstairs treetop views and a bathroom made of travertine slabs by Silverthorn, countertops in Calacatta Lincoln marble, and a planted micro-courtyard behind the shower room that offers both luxury and privacy. The listing for the home is being held by Christine White with The Boutique Real Estate.
