Only house I'd consider Moving to.
The other day, Julie and I went to an estate sale. Thought maybe I’d pick up something cool, but we got there too late for the good stuff. The upside was the estate sale was in this wicked 1957 modern home on Balcones Drive, that is currently under contract.
Julie kept saying, “This house would be the best place to have a party.” Too true. This pool was actually in their front yard, but you couldn’t see it from the street because the house is up a hill, and the pool was blocked with shrubs.
They had these atomic bullet sconces EVERYWHERE in the house. Man oh man. I love those things… and the light switches were all push-button style.
I actually snagged these pics from Modern Austin, where I heard someone bid $100,000 OVER the asking price of $760,000.00… that person didn’t get the house. HOW MUCH DID SOMEONE BUY IT FOR? Lucky bastards. Invite a bald man over for a dip, would ya?
