Homes for Sale in Northwest Austin, Texas

Northwest Austin is a primarily residential neighborhood located near the capital city of Austin.

It provides Northwest Austin's commuters not only convenient access to many of the Austin area's other major thoroughfares, but also an easy route into downtown.

Most of the homes for sale in Northwest Austin are highly desirable due to the neighborhood's central location, comparatively larger size and idyllic hill country setting. Home hunters checking out Northwest Austin will also discover newer real estate properties, impressive public school districts and close proximity to the Gateway Shopping Center, St. Edward’s Park, the city's Arboretum at Great Hills, and the popular recreational destinations of Lake Travis and Lake Austin.

About Austin

Austin is the fourth most populous city in the state and the 13th most populous city in the nation. There are more than 820,000 people who call the city of Austin itself home. It also serves as the economic and cultural hub for the greater Austin–Round Rock–San Marcos metro area, which encompassed an estimated population of more than 1,780,000, according to the U.S. census.

During the 19th century, Austin welcomed two additions to its expanding community that would go on to define much of the city's character and aura: the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas at Austin.

The city, however, refuses to be fully defined by any one of its myriad facets, engendering a number nick names and slogans over the years, some of which include, Silicon City for its relatively large number of high tech companies; and the slogan "Keep Austin Weird" for its eclectic and diverse residents, and music, arts and cultural offerings.
