You’ll have to wait until 2020 to buy a condo in Province, described as a “gated collection of estate villas,” currently under construction in Tarrytown. Asking $895,000 they are inspired by Alsatian urban houses, according to the listing. That explains the alternating pattern of chimneys and window bump-outs if not the earth tones and lack of half-timbering. Three-story units have two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as stone courtyards with private plunge pools, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and high-end appliances and fixtures.

There’s also a detached garage and a private backyard with large shade trees. It’s priced at $895,000.

4503 Oakmont Boulevard

Curbed Austin recently featured this 2,070-square-foot single-family home in Allandale, asking $889,000. It’s a fairly new house with a modern, midcentury-influenced look, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, hardwood and tile floors, vaulted ceilings, a gourmet kitchen, and a small detached studio in back.

1101 Canyon Edge Drive

Located in the still somewhat under-the-radar Cuernavaca area (in this case the Austin Lake Estates neighborhood), this 2,316-square-foot, single-family home is about 15 miles from downtown and was designed by award-wining local architect Tom Hurd. Sited on a private, wooded hillside overlooking a dry-creek canyon, the house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as energy-efficiency features including solar panels, heat-reducing thermal mass retention walls, and an electric-car charging outlet. It’s asking $899,000.

A condo with views in the Four Seasons Residences sounds both traditional and exciting, especially for those wanting to live Downtown in a long-established luxury building. Asking $899,000, this 806-square-foot unit has one bedroom and one bathroom and features hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, high-end appliances, and a balcony that looks out on the river. HOA fees are $538 per month.
