Residential Living

Situated just west of downtown Austin, the area known as Westlake is a perfect fit for those wanting to enjoy a more rural lifestyle but not stray too far from the city’s urban core. Known for its rolling hills, close proximity to the lake and the award-winning Eanes ISD, the Westlake area is desirable for both families and single executives alike.

The incorporated cities of West Lake Hills and Rollingwood work to maintain the rural atmospheres established in the 1950s with businesses tucked along tree-lined streets and where signage and artificial lighting is kept to a minimum. The Westlake neighborhoods of Lost Creek, Barton Creek and the hilltop communities on Mt. Larson with their panoramic views of Lake Austin and the downtown skyline offer a relaxing lifestyle in a close-knit community.

While some of the region’s most expensive waterfront and resort-style homes can be found in the communities of Rob Roy, Barton Creek, Davenport Ranch, Westview, West Rim, Austin Country Club and Barton Creek Resort, there are also many neighborhoods in the greater Westlake area with price points as diverse as the residents. New custom homes in a variety of architectural styles often sit next to mid-century bungalows in neighborhoods with greenery and beautiful landscaping. For those wanting to rent, luxury apartment buildings can be found along the Capital of Texas Highway along with duplex and condominium units throughout the area.

Living in the Westlake area provides residents with a cozy small-town, rural feel, with the bonus of being located only minutes away from downtown Austin.
