While the price tags might seem a bit high for the Austin area (median selling price for a home in the popular city of Texas is $ 547,975, Austin CultureMap reported) there is a reason for this.

“The future of residential construction has changed, ”states the ad on East 17th Street Residences. “This is your opportunity to own a part of history with the first 3D printed home for sale. ”

That’s right – two stylish homes in the nation’s first 3D-printed home neighborhood are up for grabs, with a 1,928-square-foot gem for $ 795,000, along with another more modest 1,572-square-foot beauty at the price of $ 745,000.

The neighborhood is the original idea from real estate developer 3Strands and ICON, a technology company.

“We want to change the way we build, own and live together as a community,” said Gary O’Dell, co-founder and CEO of ICON, according to 3Strands. “This project represents a big step forward, pushing the limits of new technologies, such as 3D printed houses. ”

The neighborhood is located a few miles from downtown Austin, which makes it very convenient for someone who works downtown or just likes the lively vibe.

“3Strands prioritized architectural and interior design to demonstrate that this new approach could be as beautiful as it was innovative, leveraging the design team at Logan Architecture and Claire Zinnecker Design“3Strands said.” The interior finishes are a modernized West Texas design with a streamlined palette of natural woods, similar metallic finishes, and earthy tile colors. ”
