1901 Cliff Street, Austin 78705
Calling all midcentury-modern design aficionados and architecturally savvy buyers looking for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Austin history. Welcome to the historic Thomas M. Cranfill House, designed by famed architect Harwell Hamilton Harris in 1952 during his term as The University of Texas at Austin’s first dean of the School of Architecture. It was co-designed by Walter Eugene George, one of the leading architects of the historic preservation movement in Texas. This home, sitting on over half an acre, was built in 1952 for Thomas M. Cranfill, a University of Texas English professor and avid art collector. This hillside home at the end of tree-lined Cliff Street eight blocks from the University of Texas campus is composed of board and batten cypress with a garden courtyard near the front entrance and a back that opens to big views of Austin's spectacular downtown. Modernist architect Harwell Hamilton Harris pioneered California Modern style across the nation, including here in Austin, Texas. The Thomas M. Cranfill house was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. Left in its original condition, this property is waiting for the architecture enthusiast who can attentively modernize the home without compromising Harris and Cranfill’s thoughtful design.
