A great place to leisurely stroll the grounds, entertain, relax and enjoy-- A private retreat in the heart of Austin.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown:
                          Our 1941 estate and home has the flair of Old Austin and once hosted great parties with scholars, artists from a grand era. Now in the heart of the city, our home sits on top of a hill overlooking the West Austin sunset. We welcome you to our family home of generations and hope that you will feel the essence of a grand era--an oasis and a vacation in the heart of the city.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We hope that you will enjoy the beauty, the charm, the privacy, the peace and tranquility of our home amongst the beautiful wooded grounds and the surrounding nature. The vast, spacious home with the view of the West Austin sunset from the living room and sun porch is gorgeous and a vacation within itself. The home and the estate capture an era of Old Austin, a rare treasure to find.
