CONTEMPORARY MASTERPIECE IN TARRYTOWN
An exquisite contemporary masterpiece on a .42-acre corner lot in Tarrytown. This long-established neighborhood is one of the most desirable in the city, with streets gently winding through towering mature trees shading gracious, elegant homes. The quiet surroundings belie the nearness of the city; you can be downtown in minutes, enjoying all that Austin has to offer without ever traveling on a highway. The home is within walking distance of a grocery store, Starbucks and Casis Elementary School – a public library is just a short stroll in the opposite direction. Middle and high schools are also less than three miles away.
ARCHITECTURAL DRAMA AND INTERIOR LUXURY
The home was designed by the renowned Ryan Street Architects and built with precision by Michael Deane Homes. Setting the tone for the exceptional design to come, arriving guests will pass through a dramatic limestone arch flanked with gas lights before entering a courtyard dominated by a century-old heritage oak tree. Inside, every room is flooded with light through the striking blackened steel windows framing spaces with verdant views both front and back. Hand-selected luxury materials grace every room, from the rich travertine floors and burnished Venetian plaster walls to the show-stopping backlit-onyx fireplace in the great room. Hermès and crocodile wallpapers complement stunning designer light fixtures and hand-crafted hardware.
DRAMATIC ENTERTAINING INDOORS OR OUT
Designed for dramatic entertaining, the floorplan offers multiple places to host guests. The office/study could be converted to an additional bedroom in the main house. An intimate dinner party may start in the lounge with a bottle selected from the impressive glass-enclosed wine cellar before adjourning to the richly paneled dining room. A large gathering might see guests flow from multiple living areas out to the covered terrace to sit around the fireplace with a glass of wine. A second firepit sunken next to the pool and spa offers additional places to converse and relax. Some guests might choose to stay overnight in the privacy of the backyard casita. At the end of the evening, you will enjoy retreating to the sumptuous primary suite which includes a luxurious marble-clad bath and two walk-in closets. For those who want to enjoy the best of Austin, this is home at its finest.
