Tarrytown house description

You'll get more than meets the eye in this home, situated on possibly one of Austin's most beautiful tree-lined streets in upscale Tarrytown. 1940s charm has been updated and expanded to offer a warm, modern family home in the heart of Austin!

A 1940s cottage has been expanded and updated to a 3100sf+ home featuring 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, executive office, large playroom, 2 living, dining and lovely screened porch. Downstairs is open concept and bright with multiple entertaining areas with great flow and natural light galore. A great spot for photo shoots!
Downstairs/Main Level you will find a guest bedroom with queen bed, guest bathroom, office with 2 desks, and large, luxurious master suite. The spa-like master bathroom features deep jetted soaking tub and large separate shower. King pillowtop mattress with Belgian linen bedding, organic bamboo sheets and muted peaceful colors makes for a peaceful stay.
The sweet screened back porch is a great place to start the day with a cup of coffee while you listen to the birds sing. There is a modern, custom designed swing set for the kids.
Upstairs there are 2 ample bedrooms, each with an organic queen latex mattress, organic bamboo linens, a full bathroom and a large playroom with TV and DVD player and queen fold-out sofa. Mature oak trees are the view from the multitude of windows, making it feel like a treetop hideaway. Casual yet elegant furnishings have been chosen with the help of a reputed local designer.
Clean and well-kept, non-smoking household. Reverse osmosis drinking water filtration system in kitchen.

This short term rental home is licensed by City of Austin and the rate per night includes 6% City of Austin and 8% State of Texas hotel tax as required by law. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Guest Access
Guests will have access to the entire home with the exception of a few locked closets where we store personal items. This includes off street parking, wifi, all kitchen appliances, LG front loading washer and dryer, outdoor gas grill, private backyard & organic vegetable garden.
Kitchen includes gas Viking stove, All Clad Copper Core cookware, Shun knives, Vitamix, Cuisnart food processor, Juicer +.

Interaction with Guests
Guests are greeted upon check in with keys and information. Hosts are available via cell phone/text for the entirety of stay. Cleaning/linen service available - please inquire.

The Neighborhood
The home is located in sought after Tarrytown, an elegant, quiet, tree-lined quintessential Austin neighborhood. Only a few minute drive to downtown or Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trails. Walking distance to Lyons Golf Course & Lake Austin boat ramp & restaurants - Hula Hut, Mozarts & Abels. There are many parks in the neighborhood including Reed Park and pool, Tarrytown park (great playground and field), Mayfield Preserve - with amazing hiking trails, water lily ponds and peacocks roaming the premises!

Getting around
There are bus line drop off/pick ups a few blocks away. Easy bike access to Zilker Park and trails. Cars to Go is another great option. Inexpensive cab/Uber/Lift ride to downtown.

Other Things to Note
We have amazing neighbors! Please be respectful of them, especially in the evenings.
Generally, that means keeping the noise down. Sometimes that means pouring a glass of wine and chatting on the front porch under the gas lamps.

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, listening to live music...

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.
