Homes Tour | November 2013

Studios, garages, and back houses (oh my!)—a look inside interesting additions to stunning main houses.

Travis Heights Art Studio

A combo art studio/garden shed rests beside a grand Victorian house in one of our favorite South Austin ‘hoods. Designed by Clayton Little Architects, wood shingles and siding paired with a metal roof make up the perfect material pairing in this dream of a studio. For more information, click here.

A Car Collector's Dream Garage

Avid car collector Rick Payton of Turnquist Partners was inspired by the Cadillac dealerships of the 1950s for the sprawling garage at his home near Spanish Oaks. He’s owned over 400 automobiles over the years, including rare finds like a 1958 El Dorado Seville. For more information about this property, click here.

A Modern Mayan Utopia

Artist Charles Trois had the vision for this sprawling estate nestled close to the Colorado River. With over 6,000 square feet of unique spaces, the art and recording studios on property are two of the highlights. For more information, click here.

The Underground Apartment

Architect Nick Deaver turned a 1919 Craftsman bungalow with a compact 1,100 square feet into a 3,100-square-foot home, work studio, and rental apartment. The original structure was preserved and a new modern concrete and glass studio and apartment are discreetly placed beneath the antique house. For more information about the house, visit or see it in person on this year’s AIA Homes Tour on November 2 and 3.

Listener's Hill

There is much more to this privately-contained and gated estate than the impressive main house. Think an entertainment annex with a state-of-the-art recording studio, a media room, three guest houses, and a five-stall horse paddock and arena. For more information, click here.

Hundreds of people are moving to Austin each day, and downtown is one of the major hubs of growth for the city. Local real estate expert Jude Galligan discusses smart urban growth and what to expect this year as the skyline continues to evolve.

From my point of view, the most exciting development is the Waller Creek District Master Plan. Decades in the making, this transformative project came to life after designers competed for the contract. It is finally coming to downtown, bringing an imaginative chain of parks,...


As you flip through the pages of our February Love Issue, one thing you’ll notice is the beautiful blooms that pop up throughout the magazine.

Instead of letting all that inspiration go to waste, we tried our hand at flower arranging to see what we could create. Since we consider ourselves floral design novices, we asked a few top designers...
