We provide some basic information on Austin neighborhoods below, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for — just ask!
From 1940’s bungalows to new sprawling mansions to high rise condominiums, central Austin has something for everyone. Austin’s diverse character is clearly displayed in its central neighborhoods, which include Tarrytown, Hyde Park, Rosedale, Old West Austin and downtown’s new vibrant condo communities. Central Austin living continues to become more vibrant with the addition of new services, including a terrific farmers’ market and Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, to already popular restaurants and stores like Hyde Park Grill and the Parlour.
Central East Austin
Considered by some as one of Austin’s most eclectic neighborhoods, artists, musicians, families, and urban farmers (including Boggy Creek, Springdale, and Rain Lily farms) all call the area east of I-35 home. This area of urban renewal offers a full range of homes — from more affordable condos and smaller bungalows, to large new homes built in the bungalow style, to new modern green homes. East Austin is a haven to local businesses, incluing hangouts like El Chile and East Side Café, and newcomers like Justine’s Brasserie and East Side Show Room. The development of the “old” airport at Mueller is a collaborative effort between developers and the city to create a new type of urbanism with large parks, a lake, and mixed use housing.
Central North Austin, including Crestview and Allendale, are booming — and with good reason. New transit centers in Crestview and Hancock center, and services to go with them, mean that there are both great spots for families to hang out — like Hey Cupcake and Phil’s Station — and beautiful tree lined streets to walk. Many first time home buyers start in smaller cottages and then move up to build custom homes on the bigger lots of Allandale. Central North Austin features some of the most affordable close-in living in Austin.
Easy access to the lake, awesome city views, and established schools make this area of Austin popular with families. The Domain is Austin’s newest shopping destination and officially anchors North Austin as an upscale living destination. Sprawling ranch homes with stone facades are a plenty in Northwest Hills, while multi-level homes with city and lake views dot Cat Mountain. Many cyclists love the amenities (and hills) of this area.
Central South Austin
South Austinites are proud to be just that – and with reason! Boasting Zilker park, Barton Springs, trendy SoCo shops, and Town Lake within its borders, it is hardly necessary to get in a car to reach a great destination. Condos provide the high life for young working urbanites, while the newer custom homes nestled in the hills of Barton Springs and Travis Heights allow room for growing families. This area is also home to many traditional bungalows and ranch style homes, as well as new green construction. South Austin is also home to some of Austin’s best-loved music venues, like the Continental Club and the Broken Spoke, and an eclectic mix of restaurants and stores.
West Austin is a popular spot for people seeking the peace and quiet of a rural setting, with the convenience of city living only a hill and a valley away from downtwon. Access to 360, MoPac, and the well regarded public schools make West Austin a magnet for newcomers and families. Homes range from older ranch style homes in Rollingwood to luxury living on the lake in Westlake. Easy access to Austin’s lakes and the Hill Country make this area attractive to nature lovers, while the Hill Country Galleria and the Back Yard give access to shops, movies, and wonderful concerts.
South of HWY290, you will find stunning master planned communities nestled near neighborhoods built in the 1970’s and 1980’s. It now feels like these communities have always lived side by side. These neighborhoods offer convenient access to major thoroughfares, clustered shops, services, parks and greenbelts and are a gateway to the Hill Country. Many of the planned communities include pool and golf course access. Residents enjoy easy access to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, the Veloway for biking, the Salt Lick Barbecue, and the Hill Country’s burgeoning winery businesses.
Many Austin families call Southwest Austin home. Its suburban feel, master planned communities, and proximity to acclaimed schools attract families seeking a more suburban lifestyle. Neighborhood pools are full during the summer, streets fill with strollers during the day, and carpools are easily formed. Southwest Austin is another gateway to the Hill Country, providing easy access to such attractions as Krause Springs and the wonderful lavender farms near Blanco.
