Spotlight on Lake Austin

Read time: 2 minutes
If you’re looking for a community known for its calm, laid back atmosphere, the Lake Austin community is an excellent choice. Its central feature is Lake Austin, a lake unlike any other in Central Texas, maintaining fairly constant water levels all year long.

Since Lake Austin is a 21-mile body of water that stretches from Mansfield Dam in the Lake Travis area to the City of Austin, there are an eclectic mix of homes that vary in size and style architecturally throughout the surrounding neighborhoods. In fact, there are homes that range from small 1,000 square-foot 1960s bungalows to 15,000 square-foot estates. The architecture ranges from traditional to Craftsman style to ultra-modern.

The Lake Austin shoreline features a variety of great family-oriented and community attractions including delicious eateries and plenty of outdoor recreational activities. Additionally, people enjoy the great school districts that most of Lake Austin feeds into, as well as that beauty of the shoreline that is scattered with beautiful nature preserves.

For dining and entertainment, locals favor waterfront hotspots like Mozart’s Coffee House, Ski Shores Cafe, and Hula Hut. For nature-lovers, nothing beats the view from the top of Mount Bonnell after a weekend morning hike.

Another plus to living in the Lake Austin area is its close proximity to downtown Austin workplaces. However, as Austin is one of the largest hubs for tech jobs in the country, there are plenty of alternatives to working downtown, because many of these employers have offices and campuses located around the Austin Metropolitan area.

The communities on the Lake Austin shoreline combine the advantage of living in the city with the relaxed feel of a lake vacation.  Watch our Lake Austin neighborhood video tour to learn more about living in Lake Austin.

Special thanks to agents Todd Grossman and Michael Said for sharing their expertise on the Lake Austin community.
