modern home in the SoCo District
401 W. Johanna. Price is $550,000
SoCo District is the most sought-after area in town. If you
you could pick just one neighborhood that best exemplifies
the vibe Austin is famous for, it is here in Bouldin Creek.
What makes this home alluring is its small size (which helps
keep the price reasonable), and it has a modern design. The
layout has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 1-car garage, wood floors,
high ceilings and a "wow" of a kitchen. Click the link for
NW Hills area on oversized lot
4108 Farhills. Price is $625,000
is a tempting price if you will do the updating. On a quiet,
picturesque little street, this four bedroom home has about
2,790 sq. ft. This is an ideal residence for a number of
reasons. The floorplan has a good "flow" of rooms, and it is
sitting on an unusually large piece of land--both wide and
deep. The back yard goes back just over 60 feet--plenty of
space for a garden, pool or playground. Most importantly,
the large lot creates enough impervious cover to allow for
substantial size to be added to the existing residence (per
the City's permitting codes). You could end up with a house
just over 5,000 sq. ft. If not important to you, it could
add a large bump in value in any future resale. Click the

hill, the privacy will make you feel like you're on
vacation. The 5000 sq. ft. villa has two master bedrooms,
elevator, putting green and studio space. One of the owners
is a New York Interior Designer which means the home looks
