Property description

Light-filled family home in desirable Tarrytown neighborhood 5 minutes from downtown Austin. Originally built in 1937, this spacious property is almost 3,000 square feet and features large windows and hardwood floors throughout. With at least three windows in each bedroom and living space, and a property lined with trees, you will enjoy the light and airy tree house feel of this charming home.

The home features a main living space that opens onto the dining room and kitchen, all that showcase the eclectic art collection of the owner. Vintage French doors in the dining room open onto a small back porch that leads down steps to an outdoor table, chairs and grill.

There are 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in the home, including a window-filled spacious garage apartment complete with kitchen and bathroom. The main house has three bedrooms including a master with a king bed, a second room with a queen bed and a third room with a full bed. The second and third bedrooms are off of a hallway separate from the master, with a shared bathroom. There is also a small study off the bedroom hallway. The garage apartment can be accessed through the main house, or through a separate staircase entrance in the back of the house. The garage apartment has a queen bed, full kitchen and bath and an AC system and water heater separate from the main house. All beds are extremely comfortable Simmons Beautyrest pillow-tops.

Including the garage apartment, the house sleeps seven people comfortably. There is a fold-out queen sleeper sofa in the living room for an extra guest if needed, bringing the total to eight. In addition to the vintage charm of an old home, this property has many modern amenities, including wifi throughout, cable with tivo, updated kitchen appliances, coffemakers, microwaves and a washer and dryer. There are flat-screen TVs with cable in the living room and three of the bedrooms. We will provide coffee and filters, and can arrange to have a few items in the fridge when you arrive. We will also provide fresh high-thread-count sheets, new towels and organic soaps for your stay.

For fun, enjoy the ping pong table in the carport, or the large trampoline near the outside seating area (liability waiver must be signed). Children are welcome in this family home!

The house is within walking distance to several neighborhood restaurants and coffee shops, and a short hike to the Ladybird Lake hike and bike trail. It is also right off the CapMetro line that will take you the short 3-mile distance to the Austin Convention Center downtown. If you choose to drive, there is plenty of parking space in front of the house, with room enough for four cars.

Enjoy this cozy, sophisticated home in the heart of Austin, one of the most beautiful cities in America!
