Tarrytown Homes For Sale
Tarrytown embodies old Austin charm. Development of this high-end, west Austin neighborhood began around the turn of the century. Some of its grand Craftsman-era bungalows still stand. However, Tarrytown has continually evolved, leading to a mixture of mid-century modern, Tudor Revival, Spanish Revival and neo-traditional architecture – and just about everything in between. The result is an eclectic, architecturally diverse community where you definitely won’t mistake your neighbor’s driveway for your own.
Bordered by Lake Austin Boulevard to the south, Mopac Expressway to the east, 35th Street to the north and Lake Austin to the west, Tarrytown is where the city meets the lake. Tarrytowners gather at restaurants and cafes along Lake Austin to relax, grab a bite and enjoy the watery view. Boaters appreciate the public boat launch in Tarrytown. The neighborhood also boasts the Austin Museum of Art and the Mayfield Park and Nature Preserve, 20 acres of lush flora, including Texas Palmettos Palms and Texas Mountain Laurel.
Golfers enjoy Tarrytown’s Lions Municipal Golf Course and the course at Westwood Country Club, which also offers tennis, a fitness club, dining and social activities. The Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail, Zilker Park and the natural spring-fed Deep Eddy Pool are easily accessed by foot or bike. Yet, for its lakeside location and sleepy, suburban feel, Tarrytown is surprisingly close to downtown. One of the neighborhood’s main arteries, Enfield Road, hits downtown about a mile from Tarrytown’s eastern border, making commuting a breeze.
Part of the Austin Independent School District, Tarrytown students attend some of the best public schools in Austin. Casis Elementary is the envy of Austin, with robust art, music and technology programs and a highly active PTA. Older students attend O. Henry Middle School – where the community gathers in the evenings and on weekends to play tennis and run on the track – and Austin High School. Location, lake and lovely homes – Tarrytown has it all.
