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.
