OLD AUSTIN CHARM WITH A CHIC UPDATE Clad in warm vintage brick, this classic 1931 home sits on a large, .51-acre lot in Tarrytown, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city. Walking distance from West Enfield Park and the Lions Municipal Golf Course, it is snuggled in an enclave filled with beautiful homes, large lots and verdant trees shading walkable streets. Tucked in this quiet neighborhood you would never guess that the excitement of downtown Austin and the beauty of Lady Bird Lake are just two miles away; both are close enough to be accessible by bike as well. SUNNY, FLEXIBLE SPACES TO ENTERTAIN AND RELAX The exceptional update to this house has created a residence that honors the elegance of the original architecture and expands on it to create an exciting, livable home for a modern lifestyle. Four living areas—a formal parlor, cozy library, sunny family room and treetop playroom—ensure there are plenty of places to relax, entertain and play. A formal dining room opens to the gorgeous, light-flooded kitchen that is outfitted with gourmet appliances including a Le Cornue range, wine fridge, natural stone and shimmering tile. The sunny, main-floor primary suite enjoys a luxurious bath featuring a freestanding soaking tub accented with artisan tilework. The second floor is a kid’s dream, with two bedrooms flanking a cozy playroom allowing for their own special space. A fourth en-suite bedroom opens up to a turfed rooftop patio with a pergola-shaded seating area and treetop views. RICH TRADITION AND CONTEMPORARY STYLE Throughout you will find a blend of rich tradition and contemporary style; burnished original hardwood floors and detailed mantels are juxtaposed with colorful tile, gleaming stone and whimsical wallpaper. Every room has an artisan touch that makes this home unique and elegant. Outdoor living is equally inspired, with a sparkling pool anchoring plenty of grassy space to run and play. A summer kitchen off the family room provides space to grill up an alfresco dinner. Opposite the patio, a casita is currently being used as an exercise room but could also serve as an office or additional play space. 24-Hour Advance Showing Notice.
