Just to the west of Mopac running all the way to the river, and south of 35th street down to Lake Austin Boulevard, Tarrytown is perhaps one of Austin’s most prestigious areas to call home.

Features: Home to politicians, professors and entrepreneurs of all sorts and their collection of beautiful houses that range from cottage to estate-size.

Favorites: Zoot, Magnolia Café, Hula Hut, Mozart’s Coffee, Laguna Gloria Art School and Museum, Reed Park, Lion’s Municipal Golf Course, Mayfield Preserve and a refreshing plunge in Deep Eddy Swimming Pool.
