AUSTIN HOUSING AND NEIGHBORHOODS
Today, the Lakeway area – which
located just 30 minutes from downtown
Austin and only 10 minutes from
marinas and golf courses – is a thriving,
in-demand community that attracts those
who want Hill Country views and who
want to be close to the lake.
Lakeway is also a golf lover’s dream, with
four area golf courses – Yaupon, Live Oak,
The Hills, and Flintrock Falls – plus sailing
and boating, and hike and bike trails.
Waterfront homes in Lakeway start at more
than $1 million, while off-water home prices
start in the low $300,000s and can go up
to the millions.

II, it’s the sister course to The Hills of Lakeway
course designed by Nicklaus in 1980.
Gone are the days when Lakeway was
just another retirement community on the
lake. More and more families are
moving here, and the acclaimed Lake
Travis Independent School District is just
one of the reasons why this community
has grown so quickly over the years.
Those who love golf will love living in
Flintrock Falls. With a golf course designed
Located off Highway 620 and Lohmann’s
Spur, Flintrock Falls is a gated community,
with homesites starting at around
$100,000 and single family homes from
about $400,000. All homes have great
views of the Nicklaus designed golf
course, and the distant hills.
With sophisticated but casual dining,
several nearby private and public golf
courses, and shopping of every sort,
including the Hill Country Galleria,
Lakeway is the perfect alternative for the
homeowner wanting all of the adventure
that Lake Travis provides and the
convenience of all the amenities the city
provides the urban dweller.
What started as Lakeway in 1963 now
includes the gated community of The
Hills of Lakeway with its own golf
course; Flintrock Falls; and The Preserve
at Lakeway, and condos and mansions
dot the hillside. While some of the best
lots are the original ones with homes on
them, the new community of Rough
Hollow offers new construction, a
marina, and a club for those
homeowners who prefer new
construction. Many of the older homes
with fabulous views or waterfront access
have been renovated and remodeled to
take advantage of the views and the
proximity to the water.
The new Lake Travis Regional Medical
Center brings the final piece of the puzzle
to the Lakeway area – a hospital.
Southwest Parkway provides easy access
to downtown as well as Austin Bergstrom
International Airport. Residents can have
it all in Lakeway – and never be more that
10 minutes from home.
