By the 1980s, Austin’s population had spread north along major highways such as US-183. Developers created subdivisions with 3 and 4-bedroom houses averaging over 2,100 square feet in size. Elevations in brick and siding are common as are large windows and leaded glass front doors.
For the most part, 1980s architecture celebrated traditional design with formal living and dining areas but added the all-important family room with fireplace. Interiors, decorated in dark wood, wallpaper, and kitchens with laminate countertops and oak cabinetry, were typical of this era. These are highly functional floor plans that work because they provide separate spaces for activities. Most Highlands at Oak Forest homes for sale are updated with fresh paint, wood floors, new carpet and upgraded lighting and kitchen fixtures, yet their classic design remains popular in today’s market.
