Rosewood house description

This 1300 sq foot home is located in central East Austin. Built in 2002, it was featured on the cover Dwell magazine in 2003 for its innovative contemporary modern design & use of affordable materials. With an open floor plan, high ceilings, cement floors & solar panels, this home encompasses many 'green' features. Windows along the roofline allows for perfect daytime light. The private yard is beautifully landscaped & has several areas to relax in- including an upstairs covered deck. With use of the upstairs studio, this house sleeps 6 comfortably with 1 & 1/2 bathrooms.
Owned by two native Austinites, this house will ensure a true Austin experience.
