2002 Rue St. Tropez – Hot Austin Modern Home – Why has no one bought this awesome home yet?

Posted by Tom Bates

 

The fact that no one has bought 2002 Rue de St. Tropez, Austin TX sort of bothers me. And it’s not even one of my listings! It bothers me because it is such a hot modern Austin home. I mean it is smoking hot. It was on the cover Dwell Magazine a few years back…like on the COVER.

Erik, the design-builder, built an amazing home in the Eanes ISD area of Westlake. It has wide open entertaining areas, Scandinavian inspired color palette, tons of custom steel, custom industrial glass and a ton of modern zing.  This home is steel construction too, not timber, no pine 2×4’s…steel and metal bones.  It’s close in, private, gated, in the best school district in central Texas (Eanes ISD), has a Lake Austin waterfront park, pool and boat dock, has a roof top with views, and on and on.

Erik nailed this Austin modern home…it’s currently offered for just $253/sf…in any other modern architecture loving city, this modern home would have been snapped up…so what’s up Austin modern home lovers?! Is it too modern for Austin? Please restore my faith in Austin as a hip, up-and-coming modern architectural trend-setter!!! 🙂 Here is a link to 2002 Rue de St. Tropez listing (again, not listed by us.)

$219/sf for central Austin modern home with 8 beds and 8.5 baths. This is a non-condo-ized-duplex…you could condo-ize it if you wanted to make it 2 single family townhouse style condo-ized duplexes. (I know that maybe seems complicated…thanks City Of Austin zoning!!) This is a really cool central Austin property, very close to UT, great owner occupant property or investment property for a 1031 Exchange.  This is not on the MLS…owner has solid rental income so in no hurry.  Here is a link to more on this Austin modern home for sale
