Emma Stone is Austin’s newest A-lister—joining names like Joe Rogan, Jonathan Van Ness and James Marsden—after she reportedly traded in Hollywood glamor for a cushy Tarrytown estate.
The 33-year-old “La La Land” actress reportedly relocated to the capital city last May, according to a report from Dirt.com, after quietly purchasing a 1.2-acre property, which was never listed.
What we know about the home:
- At 6,200 square feet, the home has four bedrooms and six bathrooms.
- The home was sold by real estate tycoon and Texas native C. Patrick Oles Jr., of Austin-based Barshop & Oles Co., who bought the dwelling in 1997.
- The home was last listed in the $4 million range but is likely worth about $7-8 million now.
- Kendra Scott is reportedly one of her new neighbors.
This is Stone’s fourth and by far most expensive property; aside from her new Texas digs, Stone owns a stylish New York City apartment, a $3.25 million mid-century home in Malibu and a $2.3 million Los Angeles Westwood home. Stone sold her $3.9 million Beverly Hills home in 2019.
Luxury real estate is booming in Texas, meaning no matter what you see in your dream home, you can likely find it right here in the Hill Country.
Whether it’s a movie theater, recording space, wine sanctuary, dumbwaiter kitchen, rain shower, large lot for landscaping, outdoor kitchen or sunroom you’re after, you can find it in at least one of these listings.
The houses, held by Compass agents, are located all over the Austin area and are on the market now.
