Austin has plenty of homes rendered in Spanish Colonial Revival and Italianate styles; there’s no doubt of that. Just take a swing around the suburbs west and southwest of the city, and you’ll find plenty—most, if not all, built in the past three decades or so.
This 3,671-square-foot Tarrytown home, in contrast, was built in 1930, toward the end of the style’s California heyday. It has, of course, been restored and updated with the most contemporary of features since then, but the overall form and feel are true to its time and its vintage.
Located on 0.446 acres in Tarrytown, one-story home has a gated entrance that opens on to a courtyard with a fountain, surrounded by mature, landscaped grounds. The one-story house has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. It features standout architectural elements and classic materials, including beamed ceilings, arched colonnades, wood floors, and French doors opening to a private courtyard.
The kitchen opens to the dining room and living area via a wide archway and is bright and open, with vintage-appropriate Saltillo tiles and narrow, wood-framed windows.
A separate living area features a fireplace and arched windows and passageways, while another leads to bedrooms, bathrooms, and a study.
There is a covered loggia and second courtyard with a fireplace, a pool, a spa, and an outdoor grill area in back.
