Lake Austin is a 22-mile stretch of the seven Highland Lakes, gracing the area just west of downtown Austin.
Lined by prime waterfront real estate, this long narrow lake winds through some of Austin’s finest residential areas. Homeowners enjoy consistent water levels and unbeatable proximity to all things Austin. Waterfront homes in Central Austin and off Westlake Drive are mere minutes from downtown and the heart of the city. Farther west, residents of The Courtyard and Westlake have easy access to Loop 360 and 2222 by way of Austin’s world-famous Pennybacker Bridge.
From weekend boat docks to palatial estates, Lake Austin is home to the many who enjoy the laid-back charm of waterfront living. While a good portion of waterfront homes are located in small, tucked away pockets of land, larger subdivisions like Steiner Ranch and RiverPlace do offer waterfront lots as well. All featuring access to several great independent schools districts, including Austin ISD, Eanes ISD, Lake Travis ISD and Leander ISD. And, all featuring the convenience of leaving the car behind, boarding a boat and heading down to a local waterfront gem like Hula Hut, The County Line or Ski Shores. It is no wonder, with such great location, a limited supply of roughly 750 home and low turn-over, these highly sought-after residences are hard to come by.
