Considered one of Austin’s most prestigious addresses, Tarrytown is one of those neighborhoods where residents buy and stay for a while. Spend 10 minutes there and you can see why. Much of Tarrytown’s charm comes from its prime Lake Austin location, mature landscaping, old shade trees and the many architectural gems. Known for its impeccably clean streets and well kept homes on large lots, Tarrytown’s home values have steadily increased over the years. Homes range from 1920s cottages to modern mansions, with the majority built in the 1950s and 1960s when the area experienced extreme growth. Slowly but surely, however, older homes are disappearing to make way for the larger, modern mansions. But, new construction is nothing but cookie cutter. It blends with the architecture of the neighborhood. Scroll Down to Read our Tarrytown Neighborhood Guide.
