Considering the location, upkeep, and fetching decor/staging, this vintage home is going for a not-bad price—one asked, in fact, for much less charming houses all over town. The location might be a bit of a love-hate thing: It’s in the neighborhood on Tarrytown’s southern border—one technically called Westfield but also referred to as Deep Eddy. This particular home is a few blocks north of the historic Deep Eddy Park and pool, possibly sheltered from all the hubbub of the surrounding streets while still conveniently located to MoPac, downtown, and Lake Austin Boulevard.

Built in 1930, the 1,618-square-foot house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It looks like updates have been more or less consistent with its craftsman-style origins (with some notable but inoffensive exceptions). The compact, lovely lot features large heritage trees, a private deck, and mature, landscaped gardens. There is also a rear-entry garage and an open-air patio in the backyard.
