806 Bouldin Ave
AUSTIN • TX • 78704
With the way the home is sited in the forest and with all the windows, it is like living in a tree house, yet feels protected and private. The shade and the Bauhaus design with broad overhangs keep it very cool in the summer. The Bouldin neighborhood has an eclectic mix of old and new.

Bauhaus design is very rare in Austin, with only a handful of buildings that were ever constructed. The home was framed using salvaged pine timbers from the 1800’s that were milled into 4x6 studs and covered with stucco both inside and outside. 

Originally designed as a single family home, it was turned into two units (main floor and top floor) before the original owners ever moved in in 1952 so they could earn some income on the property. A third unit was excavated below the home about 5 years after it was completed.

Harold Blackshear built the home as a residence for his parents while he was a student studying engineering at UT Austin.
