About the Property

4br/4ba With Modern Amenities; Fiber Optic Gigabit Network; Music Media Center

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.

Should you need anything to accommodate a baby, we can provide everything from car seats, strollers, high chairs, etc.
