Westview on Lake Austin Homes For Sale
The gated community of Westview combines urban living with gorgeous views of Lake Austin and nearby Mount Bonnell. The subdivision, established in 1996, is tucked into the hills of Westlake and puts residents just eight miles from downtown Austin.
For those who enjoy shopping, there are plenty of popular retail locations nearby. The Davenport Village shopping center is less than five miles away and offers a variety of restaurants, specialty stores, and even a pharmacy. Randall’s Food & Pharmacy and Central Market are ideal places to shop for groceries and are both within four miles of the neighborhood.
The neighborhood sits just minutes from the shores of Lake Austin, which provides plenty of opportunity for recreation. Popular area activities include swimming, fishing, camping, and much more. Several restaurants line the lake and are just a short walk from the neighborhood. Austin favorites like Mozart’s Coffee Roasters and Hula Hut make their home here, both of which are known for their stunning views of the Texas sunset.
The Red Bud Trail will guide residents to the downtown area and is ideal for walking or biking. Along the way is Red Bud Isle, which is known as the most elite dog park in the city of Austin. The peninsula is a leash-free zone and is ideal for fetching because it provides dogs easy access to the water.
