Why Lake Austin?
The number one reason people choose to make the Lake Austin area their home is because of the lake itself, for water sports, boating, recreation, and the serenity of being in nature. Lake Austin’s constant water level, as a result of flood control from Lake Travis, means there is always a perfect level of water for recreation. It also means homeowners do not have to deal with the fluctuations that can cause difficulty with boat docks and other lakefront property items – a big plus for quality of life.
It’s proximity to downtown Austin is another important factor. Depending on which nook and cranny of the lake a home is in, commute times can be as short as ten minutes, with most under 20 minutes. Making a short trip home each evening to a peaceful retreat only moments from the hubbub of downtown Austin? Oh, so nice …
Homes on the lake also can be supremely luxurious, for those who are looking for an impressive estate to call home. With everything from multi-level party decks to the most stunning of upgrades, select Lake Austin homes are made to amaze.
An opportunity exclusive to Lake Austin residents is the ability to skip the traffic and instead hop in a boat and jaunt over to Walsh Boat Landing, which offers the popular Hula Hut restaurant, Abel’s on the Lake restaurant, and Mozart’s Coffee Roasters.
The area is the closest for those who would like to patronize the Austin Country Club, one of Texas’ most prestigious country clubs and also one of the oldest, dating back to 1899. Set alongside the waters and cliffs of the lake, the club provides members opportunities for golf, fitness, tennis, swimming, and dining and also offers boat docks.
