Tarrytown Residence, Austin, Texas
The two-story addition was placed in front of the home instead of the back, making this an unusual renovation. The front of the home welcomes you with a formal grand piano room, which opens to the foyer. The Master bedroom has its own adjacent private garden and the Master bathroom includes a unique "floating mirror" suspended above the vanity. Upstairs includes their daughters' bedrooms along with a dramatic playroom that includes a chalkboard wall and reading loft. Other special features include: a barn door in front of the laundry room; a Carrara marble fireplace mantel; and a screened patio with a view of the professionally landscaped backyard.
