When it comes to the hottest neighborhoods in Austin, Lakeway has consistently snagged the title of MVP on the roster of best places to live in the Texas Hill Country.

The lush rolling hills, picturesque views, native wildlife and, of course, access to Lake Travis are just a few of its selling points. Even if you live in the Austin area, you might not fully understand why folks love to live here.

Is it because there’s a water tower that looks like a golf ball?

Is it because there’s a community pool shaped like a tennis racket with a kiddie pool shaped like a tennis ball?

Is it because Lakeway is playfully described as, “Dazed and Confused meets Ivy League.”

What was once known as a quiet vacation and retirement community has been transformed into a hub of growth and development — which makes living here convenient to everything.


Driving along RR 620, you can imagine why the earliest settlers in the area, most notably the Tonkawa and later the Apache and Comanches, decided to call this breathtaking land home.

If you fast forward to the mid-1800s, that’s when waves of German immigrants poured into the Hill Country and Colorado River area. In fact, from 1820-1860, over 600,000 Anglo-Americans migrated to Texas.

Neighborhoods & Subdivisions

If you start your home-buying tour coming into Lakeway from RR 620 and Highway 71, you’ll see wonderful neighborhoods/subdivisions on both sides of the road.

The homes on your right overlook the canyon and the homes on your left wind into golf courses and rustic Hill Country views. As you make you’re way down RR 620 towards Lakeway Blvd., the neighborhoods on your left wind all the way to the Lake Travis shoreline.

Neighborhoods that surround the homes in the heart of Lakeway include Alta Vista, FlintrockThe Hills of LakewayRough HollowSerene HillsThe Preserve at Lakeway, Yaupon Creek, Bella Montagna and North Lakeway.

Plus, there are what you would call “hidden gems” on the outskirts of Lakeway on streets like Challenger, Robin Dale Drive and Bermuda Street with luxurious homes (old and new) on the lake that boast gorgeous views and lake access.

Small neighborhoods with newer custom homes like Estates Above Hurst Habor off Hurst Creek Road rarely have homes for sale because nobody wants to leave this little slice of heaven.
