    New Designer Studio Homes for Sale in Marfa, TX

    A pair of architect-built studio houses in the notoriously expensive city of Marfa, TX, are now on the market. Located at 1316 W Sacramento Street, these newly constructed homes are being sold together for $465,000. Listing agent Lauren Meader Fowlkes describes the property as unique, as it can be used as two separate residential units or as short-term rentals.

    Each of the homes features a bedroom, bathroom, living and dining space, as well as a full kitchen. Outdoor patios and breeze-block walls offer privacy and a space for relaxation. These low-maintenance houses are ideal for both full-time residents and part-time visitors.

    Unlike many properties in Marfa, which are between 60 and 80 years old, these architect-built homes offer a rare opportunity to own modern real estate in this exclusive artist community. Marfa has gained popularity as a trendy destination, attracting celebrity visitors like Natalie Portman, Matthew McConaughey, and Jake Gyllenhaal. The city, with a population of only 1,750 as of 2021, is home to numerous full-time artists.

    The location of the homes on Marfa’s west end offers convenience, as it is close to popular establishments such as The Water Stop, Alta Marfa Winery, and the UP line walking trail. The property boasts a designer aesthetic, with custom kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, energy-efficient mini split HVAC units, and a drought-tolerant xeriscape. The exterior features low-maintenance finishes, including corrugated steel and a standing-seam metal roof.

    If you’re looking for a unique and modern property in Marfa, these architect-built studio houses at 1316 W Sacramento Street are truly one of a kind.
