George L. Walling, Architect | The Tisdale Residence, 1950. On a quiet tree-lined street in Hyde Park, close to UT, minutes from downtown, and a block and a half from the newly-renovated Commodore Perry Estate, this historic property is extraordinary for a variety of reasons. With expressed post-and-beam construction, floor-to-ceiling glass, site-gathered masonry walls and fireplace, tongue-and-groove ceilings, horizontal wood paneling, and board-and-batten siding, this vintage mid-century modern home is preserved in time. With these bona fides, it should be possible to register the home as a Historic Landmark for property tax savings. Second, this home sits on a huge lot with 2 separate parcels, almost 2/3 of an acre in Central Austin, presenting a handful of unique opportunities. Constructing an ADU, adding a pool, and completing new landscape and hardscape will complete a contemporary compound. Alternately, it may be possible to sell the back lot separately for a new single family home, to offset the cost of the overall purchase. Finally, it may be possible to combine, subdivide, and re-plat the two parcels into as many as four new lots, providing an exceptional development opportunity for four new single family homes and four ADUs, for a total of eight units. Combined list price: $1,590,000 (front house: $1,195,000; vacant lot in back: $395,000).
