When a mid century landmark hits the market, we’re all ears. This Austin, Texas gem by Harwell Hamilton Harris is no exception.
Pioneering midcentury-modern architect Harwell Hamilton Harris designed only a few Austin residences in his short tenure as dean of the UT architecture school (1952-1955, according to the USModernist website). An acolyte of Richard Neutra, Harris worked on the famed Lovell Health House before starting his own practice and is probably best known for the homes he designed in California—but the quality of his work in Austin is just as appealing and remarkable. The Barrow Residence in Balcones Park is a single-family home, more typical of his work, but he also took an unusual turn with the three-unit Cranfill Apartments, commissioned by a U.T. professor and built in 1959.
The two-story condo is listed for $495K and has historical designation.
