Some contemporary house designs can seem a little untouchable — sleek and chic, but looking more like they should function as a museum instead of as a home for actual humans.  

Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a Bluffview Austin stone contemporary that shows off exquisite design and practical function to work for real people. 

Karen Eubank staged the house at 4421 Bluffview Blvd. so it would be seen as a comfortable place to live, in addition to showing off its gorgeous architecture, compliments of Phillip Jennings Custom Homes. 

“When I was staging, a mom came by for a sneak peek with her little boy of about eight,” Eubank said. “When he threw himself on the large sectional and said, ‘All my brothers and sisters could fit here, this would be great!,’ I thought that was the best stamp of approval because that’s exactly what is going to happen — a family is going to gather here and watch TV, enjoy the fire, and hang out.” 

There’s plenty of space for a family to stretch their legs with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, three dining areas, two offices, and 6,011 square feet on two stories, built in 2014 and sitting on 0.42 acres. The floor plan also lends itself to entertaining and we can imagine some killer parties for human big and little.
