Check out this location just 11 minutes to Downtown if that is one of your priorities in an Austin home.

This neighborhood has it all from a wide selection of housing options to the close proximity to Lake Austin. You’ll love having everything on site such as top-rated schools, retail, and dining.

 You’ll be right by a private golf club and community pools too. Spend the weekends hitting the local bike trails, parks, or enjoying water sport on Lake Austin. This is an excellent master-planned community that will easily fit in your $700k budget and get you one of the best options in Northwest Austin.

Great Hills

Another Northwest Austin gem is Great Hills, known for its rolling hills and convenient location.

Spend your free time at the private country club working on your golf game and enjoy the lush greens and mature trees on your daily neighborhood strolls.

Barton Hills

You’ll enjoy both the proximity to downtown as well as beautiful rolling hills and that residential feel. This one will be right at the top of your budget but you’ll get homes from the 50s and 60s in original condition, or even brand new construction, and an overall neighborhood with character, access to new restaurants, and nearby shopping.

Beecave Woods

Beecave Woods is a beautiful neighborhood that is one of the most desirable in West Austin.
