If Matthew McConaughey can find Zen in Austin, chances are you can, too, especially amid the sleek lines and no-fuss vibe of this minimalist new-build in hip, eclectic SoCo. Designed Priscilla Glover and Ivan Spaller in 2011, the tasteful three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, nearly 2,500-square-foot Barcelona Modern, as it's called, "is a study in Early European modernism with the intrinsic classical touches of that period," Glover and Spaller once told the blog Desire to Inspire. Cool details include 11-foot ceilings, Circa lighting fixtures, chevron-patterned white-oak flooring, factory-style glass doors, round, weatherized windows, Carrara kitchen countertops, and, in the master bath, onyx tiling (resembling beautifully marbled steaks) and a glass soaking tub (leaving little to the imagination). The property first came to market for $875K but is now listed for $749,950.
