1920s Texas House Gets A New Addition

A Central Austin, Texas, bungalow dating back from the 1920s got a brand new addition through the work of Murray Legge Architecture that wraps around an oak tree that is 150 years old. Thanks to the addition the existing house is double in size while preserving the charm of the twenties. The house that exists is untouched and the addition includes a study, a master bedroom suite and a modern dining area.

In the addition’s upstairs the master bedroom suite was added with really large angled windows looking out towards the tree mentioned, together with neighborhood views. Move towards the downstairs area to see a wonderful dining room close to the house’s original entrance. Floor-to-ceiling windows show views of the garden and the deck.


In one part of the study we have a door leading to a deck that is partially covered and that runs over addition length. The result is a large inviting outdoor space. Wood lengths were cut in the exterior in order to create an appearance that is staggered, an artistic architecture touch.
