          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: I am a residential real estate agent and my husband is a commercial broker. We have a nerdy love of good real estate. We've moved 4 times in the past few years in order to find this home & neighborhood, where we have felt so fortunate to build our lives and raise our kids. Jon is a rare true born and raised Austinite who has a deep knowledge and love for the city. Fair moved here to attend UT and never left. We love the festivals, many restaurants, kayaking on Lady Bird Lake, walking/running on the trails, going to any of the great Farmers Markets.

          Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown:
          This home has a really great balance of cottage charm and modern appeal. People often comment when they come inside that they are surprised that the house is so large as it isn't 'showy' from the street. The floorplan works great with large, open, sun-lit entertaining area, a master retreat and guest room downstairs, and a kid's haven upstairs! The neighborhood is friendly and sweet. The approach to our home is picturesque- large oak trees bend over the street - it's no surprise there is occasionally a film crew nearby! Tarrytown still has soul. There is an eclectic mix of older cottages, modern new construction... AND it's so close it, we very rarely deal with traffic. It's a great place to call home

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The covered front porch is great for visiting with neighbors and the screened back porch is a sweet spot for more intimate gatherings.
