Homes for Sale in West Austin, Texas

Homes for Sale in West Austin, Texas

When traveling west out of Downtown Austin, Texas to check out some of the homes for sale in West Austin, make note of the gradual transition from an urban landscape to suburban communities and the lush, scenic countryside of the Texas Hill Country.

The geographic area that locals refer to as West Austin contains a number of smaller neighborhoods, myriad points of interest and at least two communities that, not too long ago, were obviously autonomous cities, but are now essentially large Austin neighborhoods: Rollingwood and West Lake Hills.

West Austin is defined by its relative undefinability. If you were to ask most residents where West Austin's borders begin and end, you would probably discover that the most common answer would be from the western edge of Downtown Austin all the way to South Lake Travis, about 20 miles northwest of the city. So, of course, homes for sale in West Austin cover a wide range of styles and prices, all living together in perfect harmony. The area offers University of Texas at Austin student rental units, tastefully updated and modern family homes, as well as some of metropolitan Austin's most exclusive addresses.

Some of the smaller neighborhoods within West Austin include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Barton Creek
  • Davenport
  • Seven Oaks
  • Rob Roy
  • Lake Pointe
  • Beecave Woods
  • Ridge at Alta Vista
  • Spanish Oaks
  • Davenport Ranch
  • Lost Creek

West Austin's points of interest include the Austin Country Club, 360 Bridge, Barton Creek Greenbelt, Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, Zilker Park, Barton Creek Resort and Spa, and Barton Springs' naturally cool, spring-fed pool.

Austin itself is home to more than 820,000 people, making it the state's fourth largest city and and the United States' 13th most. On a grander scale, the five-county Austin–Round Rock–San Marcos metropolitan area - commonly referred to as Greater Austin - contains a population of more than 1,780,000, according to the U.S. census.
