About the owner: Our family loves being outside, whether grilling and relaxing at home or taking advantage of the many activities Austin has to offer. We've found that Austin has an abundance of options for visitors and residents alike. The hard part is narrowing down how to spend your time!
Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown: Our family selected this home based on the charm of the neighborhood and the proximity to downtown Austin, Lady Bird Lake, and Lake Austin. It's close enough to be a short bike ride, cab ride or drive to all the entertainment and restaurants downtown, yet distanced enough to provide a quiet respite when you need it. And, for outdoor enthusiasts, our home is also uniquely situated to provide quick and easy access to many activities including hiking, biking, trail running, paddle boarding, rowing, water skiing, wakeboarding...you name it!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Being able to quickly be in an outdoor paradise - whether hiking up Mt. Bonnell, running around Lady Bird Lake, or waterskiing on Lake Austin, is a huge plus. We also enjoy riding our bikes down the trails for safe and easy access to multiple Austin festivals and events at Zilker Park.
