Westlake Hills, Texas Neighborhood Homes for Sale

A stone’s throw from downtown Austin and yet miles apart in some ways, Westlake Hills is as lovely as the rolling hills for which it is named, with mature trees and greenery in abundance. The high-income neighborhood is peppered with elegant luxury homes that were built in the 1970s and 1980s but have been continually updated to remain enduringly on-trend. The area is served by the award-winning Eanes Independent School District, and come autumn, you’ll find a large percentage of the area’s residents under the Friday night lights at the high school’s impressive football stadium, cheering on the Chaps.

As the city of Austin has grown up around Westlake Hills, the area finds itself in the middle of it all, with easy access to major thoroughfares that make getting around the greater Austin area a cinch. Many large employers are nearby, making for an easy commute. And when it’s time to relax, Westlake Hills residents enjoy proximity to the Barton Creek Wilderness Park, an 800-acre nature preserve that contains Austin’s beloved Barton Creek Greenbelt. Westlake is also close to Red Bud Isle and the breathtaking Pennybacker Bridge. Golfers appreciate the numerous courses in Westlake Hills, and everyone loves the many shopping, dining and entertainment options in the area.
