If you’ve got a big family, with a bunch of kids, and are looking to send them to some great schools, this is the place for you. Here’s a 7 bedroom house in Westlake that goes to Eanes Schools. Your high school kids could even walk to Westlake as it is only a few blocks away from the High School. (more…)
The last two houses that came on the market are what original houses look like. Sure they are liveable, but generally they don’t suit the lifestyle of today’s familites. The house that just came on the market today, is what a remodeled house in Lost Creek Looks like. (more…)
This Lost Creek house in Westlake was built in 1979, and looks the part. It needs a lot of updating, plus it has foundation issues. But when the average home in Lost Creek sold in November of 2015 for just under $700,000, this is quite a bargain at $499,900.
Sure it’s gonna take $10K to make the foundation right, and you could easily dump another $100K into the kitchen and bathrooms, but when you were done, you would have a great 2100 square foot house with views, and your kids would go to the top rated Eanes Schools (click here to see other current homes that go to Eanes ISD).
Not all homes in Austin have foundation problems, and generally houses in this part of town are OK, but sometimes a builder didn’t use enough concrete, or the right kind. For some people this turns them off right away, but others aren’t scared. They know that they are going to do some work to update the house anyway, and a new foundation with a lifetime transferable warranty (provided by many foundation companies) is a big plus when it comes to resale.
If you are interested in this home in Lost creek, or another if this one is no longer on the market, let me know. I’m here to help.

Did you see this newly listed house that goes to Eanes ISD? I’ve got one for you today in Lost Creek. Built in 1977 (and it shows), with 4 bedrooms and 2 and a half bathrooms this 2 story house is ready for updating.
This place has some cool features: a bridge-like front walkway leading to a split level like home. The main living areas and master bedroom are on the main level with all the kids bedrooms and a large playroom space on the “ground floor”.
But there is a lot of work that would need to be done if you ask me – just look at the kitchen, the wood paneling, and the drop ceiling in the gameroom below the garage. But it does have 3,150 square feet, a formal living room, and dining room, and is liveable now.
If you are interested in this house in Lost Creek, let me know and I’ll arrange a showing if it is still on the market (otherwise I can probably find something else similar for you)
