Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Family of 5 - we love to travel, hike and bike, especially on the trails around Lady Bird Lake, which is a short walk from our house.

Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown:
We love our 'tree house.' Modern design, classic materials of maple and stone, large windows looking out to oak trees give it the feel of a tree house. We love walking to urban parks, trails, pools and cafes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location is the best - in the heart of Austin, close to Live Music and all festivals, ACL, SXSW... University of Texas Easy access to MOPAC (loop 1) means easy access to the city. We are close to all the things we love about Austin: Town Lake/Lady Bird Lake, Lake Austin, great restaurants, Zilker Park, Deep Eddy, UT.
