What does it cost to buy a home in Tarrytown right now?
Tarrytown is bounded by either Enfield Boulevard or Lake Austin Boulevard on the south (depending on whom you ask), West 38th Street on the north, Lake Austin on the west, and Mo-Pac on the east.
While not the most affluent neighborhood in town (that would be West Lake Hills), Tarrytown holds its own as an monied central-city enclave that dates back to 1915. While it’s near downtown, its massive canopy of oak trees gives it a quiet, inviting character that makes it seem miles away.
The housing in the neighborhood tends to be older, and bigger, than in most parts of town, but there are also small, older cottage and large new mansions, as well as apartment and condo complexes in the area.
The average asking price in the neighborhood is $445 per square foot (2410 McCall Road, a 1950 modernist house with a distinguished architectural and design pedigree), but the individual properties range from $249 (1905 Mountain View Road, a large, remodeled home built in 1940) per square foot to $879 per square foot, according to NeighborhoodX.
To put these prices in context, on a per-square-foot basis the asking prices in Tarrytown are the second-highest in Austin, behind only Downtown (averaging $590 per square foot), and just ahead of West Lake Hills ($439 per square foot).
