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.
A freshly remodeled 1968 ranch house in Northwest Hills, this roomy home (2,748 square feet) has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, an open floor plan, white oak floors, stainless steel appliances, modern fixtures, and a stone fireplace. There’s also a detached garage and a private backyard with large shade trees. It’s priced at $895,000.
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.
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.
