As I travel around Austin, looking at new home builders with my clients (and for you, too), I am amazed at what I see. There are so many great new builders and neighborhoods going in everywhere. Today I’m going to tell you a little bit about Century Homes at Siena.
It seems like every few months another national publication is singing the praises of living in Austin. They put out a 10 best neighborhood list, or the top 5 zip codes in Austin, or something similar. Well, I’ve taken all those lists and put them in one easy to reference place for you. Read more
One of the smallest developments I’ve written about, Rivercrest is a single street (with multiple cul-de-sacs) of beautiful luxury homes. Built in the 1960’s by the Bohn Family, Beautiful, old growth Pecan trees planted over 30 years ago line the streets and create a relaxed, family friendly neighborhood for the residents
River Place is a fantastic place to live. It’s as far away as Steiner Ranch, and also not as large, but with a hill country feel, and incredible views. just of 2222, and about 15 minutes away from downtown, River Place is close to major employers, as well as tons of outdoor activities. One of those little known area that tons of people drive by everyday, but don’t really know much about it.
Just north of the Old Enfield area of Austin is an even more prestigious area called Pemberton Heights. These majestic, older homes are only a few minutes away from downtown, and are highly desirable because of the location, size, and style of the houses.
What makes a home in Pemberton Heights so sought after? First of all they are typically on larger lots. Secondly this neighborhood is in a great, close in, but private location. North of windsor, and south of Westover, between Mopac and Lamar, residents of Pemberton Heights are close to everything. Additionally, many of the streets twist, and turn, and aren’t major arteries leading downtown.
Northwest Hills is a very popular neighborhood centrally located on the west side of Mopac. Adjacent to Cat Mountain, this area doesn’t share the same views, but are equally beautiful, and on incredible tree lined streets.
Development of the 200 acres that makes up Northwest Hills began in the 1950’s and continues today (there are a few small sections of new construction). Most homes are single story, in the popular ranch style, however some have been updated and take on a mid-century modern feel.
Lost Creek is an older upscale neighborhood just west of West Lake Hills on the other side of 360 that has beautiful single and multi-level homes, many with views.
Most of the homes were built in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Some have been beautifully updated, while others are ready for your touch and finishes. Most are 3 to 5 bedrooms and around 3,000 square feet. Read more
