Westlake mom Mia Holden works in the tech industry. “I moved here in 2002 for work. I met my husband while he was getting his degree at the University of Texas,” shared Holden. “On our second date, he took me to Austin City Limits music fest. I was sold—on him, and on living in Austin."

Holden and her spouse enjoyed living in a downtown condo before starting a family. “Downtown life and culture were great, but when it was time for a dog and a big backyard, we moved to Westlake Hills.” Now they are ten minutes from downtown with 2.5 kids and a third garage for the family boat. “We still have a clear view of the Capitol, but now we have wild birds, deer, and foxes, too.”

Location

luxury home in west lake hillsAustin luxury homes can be found in many parts of town, most within 10 miles of downtown Austin. Waterfront homes along Lake Austin and Lake Travis are perhaps most well known for their upscale appeal. Westlake Homes, along with many homes on the southwest to northwest side of Austin also fit into this category, many offering hill country views, downtown Austin views, acreage, lake access, or other notable features.

Holden prefers living in Westlake. "We wanted to be close to downtown. Every weekend there's something fun happening in Austin: a concert, a festival, a 10K … Living here, we can hit the farmer's market on Guadalupe, take the kids out on the lake, and still be home before brunch.”

A few of Austin’s most expensive neighborhoods are Rob Roy on the Lake, Costa Bella, Lake Ridge Heights, Bluffington, Laguna Loma, Comanche Trail Estates, Barton Creek, Summit Park, Watersedge at Rough Hollow, and Davenport West.

While luxury condos in downtown Austin have the zip code 78701, Austin-area luxury neighborhoods are located within the following 14 zip codes: 78730, 78738, 78654, 78731, 78734, 78746, 78735, 78732, 78733, 78703, 78704, 78759, 78705, and 78739.

swimming pool at 360 tower condosAmenities for luxury homes can range from personal boat docks and infinity edge pools with downtown views to wine cellars, guest casitas, and opulent ballrooms. Some homes even offer vineyards, equestrian facilities, helipads, and landing strips. For more about the types of amenities and features Austin luxury homes may provide, read our Luxury Home Lingo page. Also, read about the difference between a luxury home and a mansion .

Austin includes its share of country clubs: Austin Country Club is the oldest golf club in the city, founded in 1899. The club includes a 180-acre, 18-hole Pete Dye design golf course, a Harvey Penick learning center, 10 lighted tennis courts, a heated swimming pool, a fitness facility, boat slips, and a large clubhouse. Other popular country clubs include Barton Creek Country Club, River Place Country Club, and Lost Creek Country Club.

Austin’s hill country setting creates an ideal environment for challenging and beautiful golf courses, including the University of Texas Golf Club, Avery Ranch Golf Club, Spanish Oaks Golf Club, Grey Rock Golf Club, Lions Municipal Golf Course, Harvey Penick Golf Campus, Hills Signature, Flintrock Ralls, and more.

Austin also offers an abundance of spas and resorts. Lake Austin Spa is one of the top U.S. spas, with extensive grounds along the shores of Lake Austin, plus pools, spa treatments, overnight accommodations, fitness classes, and wellness classes. Other well-known pampering stays are available at Travaasa, Barton Creek Resort and Spa, and Lakeway Resort and Spa.

Water-lovers of all varieties will enjoy a day of fun in the sun on one of Austin’s three lakes : Ladybird Lake, Lake Austin, and Lake Travis.

Austin Parks

lush outdoor backyardThe Austin area abounds with lakes, creeks, greenbelts, and parks. “When I came to Texas, I expected cowboys and dust bowls,” joked Holden. “I was enamored. I didn't expect so much green! Austin’s an oasis."

Zilker Park, with its playground, miniature train, dog park, and greenspace, is well known to lovers of the annual kite festival and the world-famous Austin City Limits festival. It is also home to Austin Botanical Gardens, Umlauf Sculpture Garden, the Austin Nature and Science Center, and Barton Springs Pool: a 1,000 feet-long, spring fed lap pool that stays open all year, and boasts a constant 68-degree temperature. Zilker Park also offers access to the 10+ miles of gravel jogging trails encircling Lady Bird Lake.

For camping, hiking, boating, and picnicking, Austinites head to Emma Long Metropolitan Park. One of the largest parks in Austin, it features facilities for RV camping and tents, 12 miles of hike and bike trails, picnic tables, BBQ pits, fishing piers, swimming areas, volleyball courts, a splash pad, a basketball court, bathroom facilities, and more.

Just west of West Rim are the 227 acres of Wild Basin Preserve, with three miles of winding hiking trails that course through hill country woodland, across streams, and over grassy terrain.

Then there’s Red Bud Isle: a 13-acre, dog-friendly, leash-free, sylvan oasis that juts out into Lady Bird Lake just south of the dam. Red Bud Isle, also popular to canoers and kayakers, offers a fishing pier, picnic tables, and cypress-shaded walking trails.

Mayfield Park and Preserve crowns Tarrytown. This beautiful, turn-of-the-century property spans 22 acres and is home to lush gardens and ponds, roaming peacocks, and deer.

Mountain-bikers, dog-walkers, hikers, and outdoor climbers flock to 400-acre Barton Creek Greenbelt. In southwest Austin, it entails 4000+ acres of preserve. Barton Creek Preserve offers a protective habitat for wildlife, including endangered songbirds and the rare Barton Springs salamander.

Culture

For a cultural outing, Austinites visit The Contemporary Austin’s art museum at Laguna Gloria and the Texas Military Forces Museum on the grounds of Camp Mabry. Or, they can head into downtown to visit the Blanton Museum, Elisabet Ney, or the Bullock Texas History Museum.

Families with children flock to the Thinkery, Austin’s prized children’s museum. The Live Music Capital of the World, downtown Austin is also famous for its live music, colorful festivals, and nightlife.

“Last week it was the kite festival. This week it's South by Southwest. Austin's just a great place to work, play, and raise a family,” said Holden.

Shopping and Restaurants

“Austin's a foodie haven—there's always a new restaurant people are raving about. Our go-to is the downtown Whole Foods,” confessed Holden. “The kids adore it and we feel better about what they're eating. And, there are lots of places to shop nearby."

Austin’s urban core does offer a plethora of shopping and dining offerings. Historic Clarksville and the high-end Market District are home not only to Whole Foods Market but to a variety of retailers including lulemon athletica, Whole Earth Provision Company, Anthropologie, REI, Title Nine, and West Elm. Dining options include Corazon, Z’Tejas, and Swedish Hill Bakery.

The eclectic stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and cafes of South Lamar Blvd. (aka Sola) and South Congress Avenue (aka SoCo) are also a must-see. Shop ‘til you drop, then grab an exquisite brunch at South Congress Café or sushi at upscale Uchi. Or, get dinner and a movie at iconic Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.

2nd street district shopping austinThe bustling Second Street District boasts six blocks of vibrantly Austin restaurants, day spas, upscale boutiques, bars, and museums. Meet friends for brunch at lovely La Condesa, enjoy a cupcake at Delish, then window shop at Estilo, Etcetera Etc, and Finch.

For upscale dining, shopping, and entertainment, residents also head north to The Domain: an outdoor mixed use development near Braker Lane. Stores like Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, and Coach stand alongside fine restaurants from Fleming’s to Whole Foods Market. Afterward, they may enjoy a cinematic luxury dining experience at iPic theatre, or an evening of fun at TopGolf.

The Hill Country Galleria is another recently developed outdoor shopping complex in West Austin that offers 1.2 million square feet of high-end department stores, fine restaurants, and entertainment. The Galleria includes a movie theatre, a Whole Foods Market, a salon and spa, a beautiful pavilion, and an outdoor waterpark. Enjoy a meal at Buenos Aires Café, then window shop at LOFT, Banana Republic, or Gatsby’s Men’s Wear.

When the weather is hot or rainy, Austin residents visit the 180 specialty retailers of indoor Barton Creek Square Mall. With a gourmet foot court and a movie theatre, it’s one of the largest malls in central Texas.

Luxury Homes in Austin, Texas Brought to you by Regent Property Group

Austin is the power seat of the great state of Texas and is known for its dynamic downtown, live music, arts, and sports like F1 racing. Located on the cusp of the Texas Hill Country, Austin enjoys scenic hills created by the flowing waters of the Colorado River, and its picturesque surroundings are matched by beautiful luxury homes, mostly in four regions: central Austin, within the Eanes Independent School District, in West Austin, and along the lakes.

Central Austin

Many luxury homebuyers choose central Austin in order to live near the downtown business and entertainment districts, the Capitol, the University of Texas, and Lady Bird Lake. Homeowners can purchase modern high-rise condominiums with dramatic views of the Austin skyline – or character-filled historic homes in neighborhoods such as Tarrytown, Hyde Park, and Enfield.

Eanes ISD

A popular choice for luxury homebuyers is within the acclaimed Eanes Independent School District, which includes the central-west suburbs of West Lake Hills and Rollingwood. Near downtown and bordered by Lake Austin, homes are in a wide range of ages and styles and enjoy hilly, wooded topography.

West Austin

More luxury homes can be found in west Austin, from northern 2222, down to Barton Creek. 2222 neighborhoods, such as Cat Mountain, Jester Estates, and River Place, can offer incredible views and hilltop privacy and are zoned for Austin or Leander ISD. Homes in master-planned Barton Creek offer gated options and proximity to Barton Creek Resort and Spa and are zoned Austin ISD.

Lake Austin and Lake Travis

Austin is home to two lakes that are technically segments of the Colorado River. Lake Austin is central to west along 20 miles of constant water level shoreline and offers some of central Texas’ most prestigious real estate. Lake Austin borders the Austin Country Club and four school districts: Austin, Eanes, Lake Travis, and Leander. Further west is 200-mile Lake Travis, where more stunning luxury homes await.
