On a quiet, tree-lined street in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin, Texas, is where you'll find a midcentury time capsule known as The Tisdale Residence. The 1950 home designed by architect George L. Walling mixes post-and-beam construction with site-gathered stone walls, tongue-and-groove ceilings, and board-and-batten siding. Yet, it's the contrast between the front and rear facades that makes for a surprise.
Located in central Austin, the residence sits on two separate lots—presenting opportunities for forming one large, private compound or subdividing the acreage to create as many as four lots. The various options offer rare development possibilities in this populous Texas city.
The home spans 2,332 square feet and features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, as well as a large workspace. A free-flowing, open layout connects the primary living areas, which are illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors.
