Dwell: An Art Collector's Home Near Austin Asks $3.79 Million
Swaths of sweeping glass windows are juxtaposed with grey Leuders limestone walls on a contemporary single-family home in Sunset Valley, a 660-person enclave located six miles southwest of downtown Austin. At 2,717 square feet, the property slopes gently down a half-acre lot and features a sculpture garden and several Heritage Live Oak trees.
Designed by the owners, Myles and Jo Fox, along with Austin-based firm A Parallel Architecture, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom house is a modern ode to Sunset Valley’s rich history of ranches. The seven-year-old structure comprises two A-frame buildings, one long and one short, set beside each other and covered with metal gable roofs. Oversized, triangular clerestory windows at the entrance allow light to trickle into the space throughout the day.
"You can practically tell time by the way the light moves around the walls like a sundial," says Compass agent Mike Mogavero who has the listing. "It’s magical." Click above to read more.
New York Times - March 4, 2022
Mike Mogavero, a 54-year-old Austin-based agent with Compass, said he was making more than he expected within his first year. When the pandemic hit, he was working remotely in sales for a Silicon Valley-based tech company and his job shifted from a staff position to a contract job...His timing was fortuitous. Austin’s home prices rose nearly 40 percent between 2020 and 2021, making it one of the hottest markets in the country. Buyers were flooding in from California, where he’d grown up and spent most of his life and career before moving to Austin in 2013. He said he did $30.8 million in sales in 2021. "The amount of satisfaction you got from selling technology to helping people buy and sell real estate is vastly different," he said.
