Fans of A&E TV's show 'Sell This House' know that its host Roger Hazard lives in Austin with his partner in both business and marriage, Chris Stout. The couple resides on the east side of town, in the Agave subdivision. The idea behind Agave was to have a community of well-priced, super-cool, green, modern homes.

Agave was the answer to his prayers: the two-story, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath house he chose suited his quest for 'modern,' but it also accommodated his love of furniture and detail.
