In the hill country just west of downtown Austin is the area known as Westlake, a perfect community for those wanting to enjoy a more rural lifestyle coupled with convenient access to the city’s urban heartbeat.
Known for its rolling hills, close proximity to Lake Austin and the exemplary Eanes ISD, the Westlake area has become a desirable location to plant family roots. The City of West Lake Hills has worked diligently to maintain the area’s rural feel where residents enjoy a peaceful, close-knit community. From the incorporated City of Rollingwood (bordering Zilker Park) to Lost Creek and Barton Creek to hilltop communities on Mt. Larson with their panoramic views of Lake Austin and the downtown skyline, a relaxing lifestyle rich in tradition is enjoyed by Westlake area residents of all ages.
Luxury homes, waterfront property and resort-style living is abundant within many of the Westlake area communities like Rob Roy, Barton Creek, Davenport Ranch, Westview and West Rim. Austin Country Club, Lost Creek Country Club and Barton Creek Resort and Conference Center afford members and guests some of the finest golf in the area. Locally-owned boutiques, restaurants and state-of-the-art medical facilities, as well as grocery stores and libraries are conveniently located within Westlake.
While some of the city’s most expensive properties are located in the Westlake/Barton Creek area, there are also many neighborhoods with price points as diverse as the residents.
