April 18, 2020 – Classic homes have their own unique appeal that is undeniable and all they need at times is a hint of modernity to turn them into more efficient and eco-friendly contemporary residences. Originally designed by Roland Roessner, a University of Texas professor and architect in the 1950’s, the Balcones Residence in Austin, Texas was given dashing new makeover by Clayton & Little. The grand home sitting on a gently sloping hillside offers lovely views of the neighborhood even as its view for a distance instantly grabs your attention. Nestled on Balcones Drive, the exterior of this midcentury home was altered and brick walls along with a curated garden now welcome you into the spacious living area.
