An updated 1933 bungalow in Austin

Posted on Mon, 8 Jul 2024 by KiM

Charlie Rice is the sort of person you’d want for a neighbor. Not only because his bungalow is always brimming with joyful gatherings, freshly cut flowers, and the occasional swing band on the front porch, but also because—if you’re lucky—you might even clinch an invite to one of his famous five-course dinner parties. It was important that the home’s bones be allowed to shine. We let its original spirit guide us. We retrofitted an antique oak-back bar with mirrored glass and lighting to create a cozy glow reminiscent of a 1920s speakeasy. Nothing has ever felt more quintessentially Austin than this entertainer’s jewel box bachelor pad.
Super dramatic and eclectic, this small (768 sq ft) home definitely makes for great fun with friends. And bonus for going dark and moody with the kitchen. By Avery Cox Design. Builder: Richard Gift. Photos: Lindsay Brown.
