The 1930s seem to be having a moment in Austin real estate. Home of all sizes and types from the era are popping up on the market, this home on the southern end of Tarrytown being one of the more gussied up and stately.
Located within walking distance to Lady Bird Lake and its hike-and-bike trial, the .67-acre site features a two-story, 4,508-square-foot main house five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Built in 1938, the home has been restored for contemporary living but in a manner that honors its original design.
The newly constructed guest house over the garage—sited across a parklike yard with pool, spa and lighted sport court—has vaulted ceilings, wood floors, a full bathroom, a utility closet, and an exercise room. The side entry, three- car garage has ample storage and a walk-in, climate-controlled vault, and the property also has an usual feature—a well, presumably operational—that is perhaps a remnant of its origins.
The main house has living and dining spaces, kitchen, breakfast room, and a mud room.
The second floor has a media room accessed by a private staircase and three spacious bedrooms.
In addition to a guest house, sport court, pool, spa, and three-car garage, there is room for three more cars in the back.
