Scenic Place Condos is an ideal setting if you are looking for a quiet and scenic place to stay while still having easy access to downtown Austin or the University of Texas. Tarrytown is a one-of-a-kind location that is rich in history, charm and scenery. It is situated minutes from the heart of downtown and is filled with large trees, lake views, peaceful parks, and historic properties.
The condo is located directly across from the popular Scenic Drive. You can walk along Scenic to experience some of the most beautiful views of Lake Austin. Mt. Bonnell (1.3 mi) is also a popular destination for a vista view of the city, the lake, and the surrounding hill country. Neighborhood shopping such as a grocery store, pharmacy, and coffee house is ½ mile away. You can also enjoy dining or a drink on the lake at nearby Hula Hut, Abels on the Lake, or Mozarts Coffeehouse.
Scenic Place is a convenient location for outdoor enthusiasts, event-goers, music lovers, cyclists, runners, hikers, and anyone visiting town for a University of Texas related event or visit. It is also great if you are in transition between homes, transitioning into Austin from another area, or like to have long family visits.
If your plans will keep you downtown, it is less than 4 miles away or a $15 cab ride. A city bus stop is also next to the property.

I moved to Austin in 1997 from the East Coast. I fell in love with the active outdoor lifestyle and chose to stay. I purchased my home in 2002 and have renovated the entire interior over time. I am not an absent owner or property manager. I live here full-time but will soon be living part-time with my boyfriend so this creates an opportunity to rent my house for short-term rental. I enjoy and love all that Austin has to offer and this condo & location makes it easy to do everything and still enjoy the peace and quiet of the hill country.
I chose this property because I wanted to live in a quiet historic neighborhood with easy access to downtown and Lake Austin. Tarrytown is quiet, scenic, and classy with an ecclectic & wide-ranging mix of homes. I enjoy walking along Scenic Drive, biking downtown, coffee at Mozarts, drinks at Hula Hut, climbing Mt. Bonnell steps; walking to Reed Park; swimming at Deep Eddy, watching the peacocks at Mayfield Nature Preserve, and more.
My property is unique because it is so close to downtown activity, in the hills, accessible to bike routes, and close to the lake -- but still quiet and affordable for a single person, couple, or small family.
