Not long after it was established as a suburb in 1915, Tarrytown was being touted as a picture-perfect place “where oak trees charm the eye.” And so it remains today, with its lush canopy shading high-demand homes tucked along a scenic stretch of Lake Austin.
What was once farmland is now one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin, located just a few minutes away from downtown. Devoted residents, who love the community solidarity and the quiet, tree-lined streets, tend to put down deep roots here, so when homes become available, they’re snapped up fast.

You can be out on the water in no time, whether you launch your own vessel from the Walsh Boat Landing or rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard from a nearby outfitter. Tarrytown also boasts two of the city’s most delightful oases: Red Bud Isle, a 17-acre off-leash dog park with a scenic walking loop, and Deep Eddy Pool, a spring-fed (but man-made) swimming hole that’s always a refreshingly brisk 65 to 75 degrees.
