Welcome to our beautiful home in the heart of tarrytown, less than 2 miles west of downtown, zilker park, university of texas and the state capitol. Pedal one of our bikes, walk the trails, or hop in a short rideshare to enjoy the city.
We are located just down the street from historic westenfield park, a lovely neighborhood park with a trailhead connecting miles of cycling and running trails from lake austin to downtown to town lake and zilker park.
Built in 1941 as a charming colonial foursquare, our home was expanded and completely remodeled in 2012 into a sophisticated residence complete with modern updates. The entire home is wired with fiber optic infrastructure utilizing the latest gigabit network for both television and internet. Each room features boston acoustic speakers with individual controls connected to a media center streaming music throughout the house.
Situated on a giant corner lot under a stunning canopy of 100+ year old live oak trees, the house offers 3,400 square feet of spacious enjoyment. Much of the original character remains as the 75+ year old oak floors were preserved and refinished.
The first floor features a private master suite wing complete with a relaxing library and luxurious bath oasis. The other wing is open and bright with walls of windows allowing abundant natural light for terrific entertaining over a meal, watching a movie or playing the piano. The living room and dining room are adjacent to an enormous chef's kitchen appointed with high quality appliances and cookware. A central island anchors the kitchen and is an ideal gathering space for hosting a large group. Between the kitchen and dining room, up to 15 guests may sit comfortably.
On the second floor, three large bedrooms are accompanied by two full baths with double vanities and shower/tub combinations. One bedroom features a crib.
A stunning outdoor limestone terrace complete with comfortable living and dining furniture offer a peaceful venue for relaxation under a spectacular canopy of trees. The terrace is connected to a lush, expansive grass lawn and sporting basketball area. A two-car garage is available for secured parking and plenty of parking is available in the large driveway and along the curb.

Wonderful home-away-from-home for a weekend in Austin!
Our group of 7 had a great weekend stay at your very lovely home! We would highly recommend!
Blake was a great host! He was flexible when we changed our arrival time and ensured that everything was set up for us. The home is amazing and very spacious. We had a great time there and would definitely book again!
Great family house in a great neighborhood!
The owners were very kind and accommodating. My two young kids loved the house as did we do. Open, clean and in a great neighborhood!
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay here. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. Blake was very helpful. Would definitely recommend this property!
Located on a tree-lined street in Tarrytown, this home is warm, inviting, and comfortable. There is plenty of room to spread out and it is very close to all of Austin's greatest attractions. The hosts made every effort to ensure our group was comfortable and the house itself is absolutely beautiful. This is a perfect place for families visiting Austin!
Beautiful home and perfect space!
We rented this home so we could be close to family. The house was spacious and exactly what we needed, with four separate bedrooms so everyone could have their individual space. The kitchen is amazing, as it opens up to the living/dining area for a full open-floor concept. Would absolutely love to stay here in the future!
