The district is consistently recognized for having some of the most innovative campuses in the country.

Texas Hill Country homes of the 90s, to today’s more contemporary and modern styles.

Residents of Lakeway also have access to some of the finest boutique and community shopping and dining in the area.

Within this community, residents have access to amenities such as several community parks, a yacht club, and a gym with a salt-water pool. The recent addition of the Highland Village offers nearby residents a much larger community pool, complete with a lazy river, full bar, meeting rooms, and event spaces. Rough Hollow’s Yacht Club and Marina are located in one of the deepest coves on Lake Travis. So deep in fact that even during the strongest droughts in recent history, the marina continued to remain afloat.
