This progressive East Austin modern was designed to capitalize on a narrow urban lot, capture the beauty of the surrounding Heritage Pecan Trees and bring in tons of natural light.  This was successfully accomplished with what seems like endless angled windows throughout.  We catching tree canopies and casting interesting shadows throughout the day.  The great room features a gourmet kitchen, glass encased wine room and a state-of-the-art Ortal fireplace.  A glass pocket slider wall opens out onto a covered entertainment space with modern pool.  This home incorporates the earth elements of Massaranduba Brazilian wood, steel and stucco.  The flooring throughout are polished concrete and in some areas exposing the aggregate giving a Terrazzo-effect.  A steel mono-stringer staircase leads to the upper level of bedrooms, screened porch and rooftop decks.
