With over 40 homes along this gated loop, the Foothills section is one of the older developments in Barton Creek, and one of the few places where an opportunity to get a reasonably priced home still exists. However with this opportunity, there is a cost. The homes here haven’t been remodeled, and many seem dated. But there is a large discrepancy in price between homes that have been fixed up, and those that haven’t.

Living in the Foothills of Barton Creek
In this gated loop off of Barton Creek, you will find four and five bedroom homes of around 4,500 or more square feet. These homes are priced right around a million dollars, and have beautiful kitchens, views of the area, and other features you require in today’s modern lifestyle. As this is one of the older neighborhoods many of the outdoor areas are beautiful landscaped, and the plants and design have had time to take hold and mature, for a more welcoming experience.
Most of the homes are 2-story, however there are a few one level homes in the Foothills. Most have beautiful pools, 3 car garages, and a few even back up to the Crenshaw Course at Barton Creek Resort, however expect to pay a bit more for these premium lots.
