3006 Scenic Drive
STEP BACK IN TIME
Welcome to Sunnyside – a historic gem nestled on a sprawling 1.776-acre estate lot in the idyllic neighborhood of Tarrytown. This captivating property, built in 1931, boasts a rich history as it once served as a quintessential Sunday House built by German settlers as their weekend retreat to get away from city life in downtown Austin. It’s hard to believe Tarrytown was once considered “the country,” but even today, when you step on the grounds, you experience the feeling of stepping back in time.
Enter the property off a hidden path on Scenic Drive crossing a railroad tie bridge over a tributary off Lake Austin. Once inside, a breathtaking entrance welcomes you to this captivating Victorian home, showcasing its enduring elegance and timeless character.
