Welcome to Tarrytown
Historic homes nestled in a private, walkable, and charming community
Touted as one of the most well-known neighborhoods in Austin, Tarrytown exudes history, beauty, and charm. The remarkable story of Tarrytown dates back to 1934 when two founders of the development, Paul Crusemann and Carrie Margaret Graham, felt it was so peaceful they named it after their summer home location in Tarrytown, New York. Formerly acres of farmland, Tarrytown holds a quiet essence while keeping up with today’s sought-after modern amenities.
The neighborhood is known for its boutique shops, incredible dining options, and outdoor activities. Intentionally designed to evoke the charm of Lake Como retreats, the stunning houses perched along Lake Austin offer a beautiful array of architecture and complement the community’s connection to nature. Thanks to early urban planning, today, neighborhood residents enjoy a secluded and walkable community with access to ample amenities.
