It would seem like a stone cottage built in unmistakeable British-countryside style would be a poor fit for Austin’s sort of Cali-desert vibe. But this modest but elegant house, nestled as it is in the tall tree canopy of Tarrytown on Enfield Road, looks quite at home and completely part of the surroundings.
The home was built in 1940 and has, of course, been updated in the intervening years. Arched doorways, period-style windows, French doors, wooden floors, and stone fireplaces inside and out blend with the nicely styled, updated bathrooms (the one with the green-and-black tiles is especially covetable) and kitchen with granite counters, a butcher block island, open shelving, and a Viking range.
The home measures 1,816 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The outdoor area is especially compelling and inviting, with a spacious, covered dining porch, outdoor gas fireplace with stone hearth, a fountain, heirloom trees and lush landscaping.
