Circle C Ranch Homes For Sale
Circle C Ranch is one of the most popular master-planned communities in Austin. With over 5,000 homes, Circle C is only nine miles from downtown and comprises the southwest Austin region near Slaughter Lane and MoPac. The first homes were built in 1987, and new construction continues to date. Circle C is prized for its community amenities, such as a golf course, an extensive park and trail system, and a community center. Circle C is in the Austin Independent School District and boasts highly ranked neighborhood schools.
Jeff Cozad moved to Circle C 10 years ago because of its suburban feel and proximity to numerous natural amenities. “It only takes us ten minutes—on a day with no traffic—to get downtown, where we spend a lot of time on Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake.) Then, farther south is hill country, which we have easy access to as well,” he said.
Properties in Circle C Ranch
Most homes range in size from 1,500 to 5,000 square feet with an average of four bedrooms. Homes have at least three sides masonry and two to three car garages. Many Circle C homes have large lots with established trees and landscaping.
Cozad claimed, “Everything is greener down here. We have larger, more plentiful trees, and the sun doesn’t scorch our grass as much thanks to ample shade.”
Circle C has experienced construction for over 20 years, and the community is divided into sections. Some of these sections include Circle C Alta Mira, Circle C Hielscher, Circle C Muirfield Somerset Estates, Circle C North, Circle C Ranch, Circle C Ranch Lacrosse, Circle C Ranch Park Place, Circle C Ranch Park West, Circle C Ranch The Woodlands of Hielscher, and Circle C Somerset Estates.
