Possibly Austin's most prestigious and historic neighborhood, many of its residents - politicians, artists, businesspeople, and blue-blooded patrons - form the backbone of the city. You won't find many businesses in the main part of this gorgeous neighborhood, but there's no doubt that the populace want it that way.
However, that's really not an issue, since it's so close to downtown. The neighborhood is situated west of MoPac, east of Lake Austin, north of Enfield, and south of 35th street. The main street, Exposition, runs North and South through the middle of town.
Local parks make for a nice walk and an excuse to, Tarrytown Park is just west of MoPac between Westover and Windsor, and nearby Reed Park is just off Pecos. The Tarrytown Pharmacy off Exposition is like a small town pharmacy stuck in time, which really reflects the whole feel of the neighborhood in a way. But the Randall's off Exposition still makes for easy trips to the big grocery store. And if you want to dine nearby, Nu Age Cafe in the Tarrytown Shopping Center serves up delicious vegetarian (and vegan) comfort food as multifarious as its funky interior design.
But if you're not in the mood for herbivorous cuisine, you've got a number of options off Town Lake Boulevard. For instance, Hula Hut is an extravagant seafood hot spot right on the lake. Afterward, you can just saunter next door to Mozart's for coffee and dessert on their lakeside patio. But if you're in need of late night grub, Magnolia Cafe will make you nearly anything, anytime. And the Thundercloud Subs next door is always a great choice for an afternoon soup and sandwich.
Being close to the lake has always been important to Austin's residents. Consequently, many important sites are in the area, including Laguna Gloria, a Mediterranean villa on the shores of Lake Austin, which was built on a site where Stephen F. Austin himself once planned to build a home. The historic villa was the original Austin Museum of Art, and although the museum moved to its downtown location, special exhibits still come out to the lake occasionally.
Tarrytown real estate consists mostly of very large, old homes. But some high-end apartments are to be found as well. Many of the Tarrytown homes are characterized by unusual architecture, making for a pleasantly eclectic milieu. To be sure, Tarrytown properties are among the finest you'll find in the city.

I have to admit that when I first reached out through Yelp to set up a meeting with Eric I was a little skeptical. I was reading reviews of his service like you are right now, and as Eric knows well from our time working together, I'm a person who likes to research and organize just about everything. The fact that I couldn't find even a couple of negative reviews among the hundreds of reviews Eric has across Zillow and Yelp seemed to me to be too good to be true. Fast forward six weeks and one successful closing later, I'm very pleased to report that the service I got was exactly the service I read about if not better. Eric and Bailey Bowden who's Eric's right hand couldn't have been better to work with. This was my first time buying a home, so I had a lot of probably very stupid questions. Despite this, they cheerfully and promptly answered them...
Meredith Alderson is AMAZING! We have worked with many realtors, and Meredith is one of the best. She was very respectful of our budget and what we were looking for in a house. She quickly figured out the key items we wanted and helped us narrow down our search. We were relocating from Arizona and had our two young children with us - she was great at being attentive to their needs and also letting them join in with their opinion. She made house hunting (and buying) a fun experience - with minimal stress! You cannot go wrong with Meredith as your realtor!
Eric Bramlett is an incredible realtor. When my wife and I were looking for a realtor to help us relocate from California to Austin, Texas, we were impressed by the quantity and quality of the online reviews for Eric... and let me tell you, they were not incorrect. Eric is very knowledgeable of the entire Austin area, but he was also very accommodating of our timeline and our need to work feverishly to find a home quickly (as it's not easy to go back and forth from CA to Austin multiple homes).
I cannot say enough fantastic things about working with Tara McGuire at Bramlett Residential. When I reached out to Bramlett via the online contact tool, I had already spoken with several realtors in the Austin area. My inquiries were met with lackluster responses, likely because my husband and I didn't plan to purchase for several months. But when I contacted Bramlett Residential at 10pm on a weeknight, Tara called me first thing the next morning. She encouraged us to visit Austin soon, since we are relocating from Dallas, to get an idea of the neighborhoods and market. During this exploratory trip, we felt no pressure to buy ahead of our schedule. She gave us a great overview of central Austin neighborhoods and helped us narrow down the best areas for us.
