rough hollow homeThe Austin Business Journal recently ranked each Austin zip code based on 12 affluence factors, including household income, per capita income, and home values. The 78746 zip code, which includes West Lake Hills, took the top spot for affluence, with a median house value of $634,000. The largest homes, however, were not found in West Lake Hills but down in 78739, which stretches from about Slaughter Lane near MoPac to south of Highway 45 and includes the neighborhood of Circle C Ranch. Forty seven percent of the homes in Circle C were found to have nine or more rooms. This compares to, for example, 2.5 percent in trendy 78704.
