Tarrytown is like no other place in Central Texas! Where else can you dine on lakeside Hula Hut’s Polynesian/Tex Mex Mix and world famous margaritas, then stroll down for after-dinner coffee and music on the deck of Mozart’s Coffee Roasters then top the evening off watching weekend boaters dock at Walsh Boat Landing?
Quaint and established plus deep in the heart of Tarrytown, Reed Pool is home to one of many children’s swim teams, a decades-in-the-making Austin Parks and Recreation Department tradition. Hiking trails and picnic area round out this truly peaceful setting. A short run down Pecos will find you at Camp Mabry, home to the Texas Army National Guard, complete with authentic tanks and aircraft on static display and a jogging trail. Walk to readily accessible amenities such as post-office, dry cleaners, and Tarrytown Pharmacy all of which share space with historic churches, two area country clubs, and boutique specialty shops.
Find your Austin luxury home or get a vision for one you build to suit your needs on wooded lots with room to spare as you stroll tree-covered streets and find no two houses alike: Southern-style renovated cottages, modern one-story homes on huge lots, and palatial waterfront villas are only the beginning of the architectural treasures you will discover here.

“Sarah and I purchased a house and used Tom (Sunstrom) as our realtor. He went above and beyond to help us through the process. We called him about the house on Monday, we viewed it on Tuesday and put an offer that won on Thursday. We really appreciated his help in purchasing our first house and our dream house. Also,before we closed, Tom was able to negotiate with the seller to get a key to the new house and I set up a surprise proposal to my now wife at our new house. Thanks so much Tom.” - Paul G.
