Architectural Gem in Tarrytown

A Modern Cottage Feel Meets Refined Elegance in the Heart of Austin

Completely redesigned with a modern aesthetic, this home speaks for itself. The charming original stone exterior of the home starts the surprise at the front door approach. A modern sidelight window in the foyer offers a look back onto the front garden nook, the first of many views to come. The front living room is open to the functional kitchen, and a window niche allows interaction with the living room and dining room along with views onto the center courtyard. In places where a wall would have sufficed, former resident and renowned architect Arthur Andersson inserted floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

Custom built-in shelving in the study and entertainment rooms maximizes useable living spaces, while each bedroom offers a private haven filled with natural light. Original oak flooring, painted and reutilized, combined with French soapstone countertops gives a modern feel to the interior. Countless fine details such as oak-beamed block stair steps, custom iron stair railings and finely hewn semi-gloss white shiplap walls create an air of modest luxury at this charming home.

Shaded by a gorgeous oak tree, the center courtyard is placed at the heart of the home and offers a protected outdoor living space. Accessible from various surrounding rooms, it is emblematic of the easy-to-care-for style of the home. Once lived in by Charles Umlauf, this masterpiece is ready for the next artist at heart to call it home.
