A mile northwest of bustling downtown Austin, the enchanting neighborhood of Pemberton Heights looms above shady Shoal Creek. Praised for its location, magnificent homes, and sylvan streets, Pemberton Heights is a favorite for upscale Austin homebuyers, and its 354 homes reflect a variety of 19th to mid-20th century architectural styles. While children enjoy the myriad parks and green spaces of Pemberton Heights, adults appreciate its rich history and peaceful quiet. Minutes from St. David’s and Breckenridge Hospitals, the State Capitol Complex, UT campus, and downtown, Pemberton Heights is a popular neighborhood for local business owners, politicians, professors, and professionals. 

Pemberton Heights rests in the middle of the Old West Austin Historic District. OWAHD was selected as one of “10 Great Neighborhoods in America” by the American Planning Association in 2007. Along with Old Enfield and Bryker Woods, it was one of Austin’s original automobile suburbs. Now dappled under the shade of majestic Live Oaks, the agricultural history of Pemberton Heights often comes as a surprise to newcomers. “Pemberton Heights was such a different place in the beginning of its development in 1927,” said resident Suzanne Deaderick, who co-wrote a book about the neighborhood. “The land was covered in fields of corn and spinach, and there were very few trees. It sat upon a bluff, considered quite a distance from downtown, and there was no easy way to reach it.”

Well manicured two-story house in Pemberton Heights

The family that inherited this farm descended from Samuel Rhoads Fisher, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. The Fishers established Austin Land Company and named the neighborhood after a famous ancestor, politician James Pemberton. Pemberton Castle (once a water tower) became the land office. In 1928, the company built Windsor Road Bridge to carry potential homebuyers across Shoal Creek to Pemberton Heights. Within just 12 years, the neighborhood grew into 12 developed sections.

Single story house in Pemberton Heights

More than 25 places in Pemberton Heights are now designated historic landmarks, including Windsor Bridge. According to Deaderick, “Splitrock, the oldest surviving house in Pemberton Heights, was built in 1892 and actually faced east toward town. In about 1927, as Wooldridge Drive developed, the front door was moved to the other side of the house to face the new street.” One of the ten largest trees in Austin is found on this property and is over 700 years old!

Among the prominent architectural styles found in Pemberton Heights are Spanish Colonial, Art Modern, Tudor Revival, Stucco Dutch, Colonial Revival, Italian Renaissance, Georgian Colonial, Ranch, and Craftsmen-style homes, many designed by leading architects of the time.

Neighborhood Location


View Pemberton Heights, Austin TX in a larger map

Tucked between Old Enfield to the south and Bryker Woods to the north, Pemberton Heights is in MLS area 1B, an area just northwest of downtown Austin in 78703. The neighborhood grows like a tree from its eastern border, the banks of Shoal Creek. The trunk, Gaston Avenue, starts at Shoal Creek Greenbelt and extends northwest toward MoPac, which forms the tree’s top and the neighborhood’s western border. The two sides of the tree are outlined by a short zigzag of streets (including Westover and W. 29th St.) to the north and Windsor Road (W. 24th St.) to the south.

North to south corridors include Jefferson Street/Hartford Road, Jaratt Avenue, Harris Blvd., and Woolridge Drive. East to west corridors connecting the top of the tree (MoPac) to the bottom (Shoal Creek/North Lamar Blvd.) include Gaston Avenue, Ethridge Avenue, and Preston Avenue.

Pemberton Heights’ adjacency to MoPac and North Lamar Blvd. makes it ideal for commuting. The commute to downtown is less than two miles and approximately 10 minutes. Pemberton Heights is eight miles and 20 minutes away from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Homeowners’ Associations

For $30 each year, residents can join the Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association. “Pemberton Heights has a very active neighborhood association, which oversees neighborhood beautification and various social activities,” said Member-At-Large Sasha Edwards. “Residents have formed various informal groups such as a Garden Tour and ‘Gals in the 'Hood,’ which is a group of women who meet regularly.”

Dues go toward an annual picnic, garage sale day, holiday carriage rides, upkeep of the Triangles (various triangular park areas found within the neighborhood), and publication of The Pemberton Journal, a monthly printed newsletter. Membership entitles residents to voting rights on neighborhood issues and inclusion in the board’s emailed updates and announcements. One available extension of the PHNA is the Security Program. Donors can join its “away from home” list; empty residences (on a secret list) are patrolled by hired security officers until the owners return.

Residents also may choose to join the Old West Austin Neighborhood Association for $20 annually, which is open to all residents in Old West Austin (Pemberton Heights, Bryker Woods, and Old Enfield).

Pease Park offers 42 acres of playgrounds, trails, restrooms, green space, and a splash pad.

Shoal Creek near Pemberton Heights

Just across Loop 1 (MoPac) from Pemberton Heights is West Enfield Park. Its 11 sunny acres provide area residents with a basketball court, a multi-purpose field, a swimming pool, two tennis courts, a playground, picnic shelter, and clean restrooms.

For Pemberton Heights’ fitness-oriented, the Austin Recreation Center (which has seasonal rec leagues) and House Park are less than a mile south of the neighborhood across Lamar Blvd. Nearby gyms include Pure Austin at 5th and Lamar, Castle Hill Fitness, Reform Pilates, Mecca Gym, and a YMCA.

Bike-lovers will love the shady BMX course in nearby Duncan Park. Runners, walkers, and bikers appreciate the 10+ miles of trails around Lady Bird Lake, just a mile south of Pemberton Heights, along with Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool.

A mile to the south is Clarksville District . Founded in the 1870’s by freed slaves, Clarksville has been on the National Register of Historic Places since the late Seventies. Many of the historic houses remain, though it is well-known today as a shopping area, with stores like Lush Cosmetics, The Khazana, Lulemon Athletica, Haven Gallery, Waterloo Records, Whole Earth Provision Co., El Interior, Sledd Nursery, and others. After an afternoon of shopping, grab a bite to eat at Clarksville’s Galaxy Café, Zocolo Café, Josephine House, or Jeffrey’s.
