neighborhoods with active homeowner’s
associations – the Oak Hill Association of
Neighborhoods (OHAN) was instrumental in
convincing the city of Austin to build the Will
Hampton Branch Library. Capital Metro
provides shuttle bus service to the area for
those who make the commute to downtown
Austin. Oak Hill is located in the Austin
Independent School District, and residents in
Austin’s city limits use City of Austin services
and utilities, while those in the Extra Territo-
rial Jurisdiction (ETJ) use Pedernales Electric
Cooperative and other sources of water, such
as Hill Country Water Supply.
Travis Country started as a sleepy neighborhood in the 1970s that was revitalized when
it was rediscovered in the late 1990s. Buyers
can find both new and older homes in the
area, as well as condos and garden homes.
Located north of the Southwest Parkway
and west of MoPac, Travis Country is close
in, with protected natural greenbelt areas
all around it – because it was built over the
Edwards Aquifer and the designers planned
to leave large green space throughout the
area to meet environmental concerns. The
result is lots of dedicated parkland, with
plenty of room for kids to play. There are
also facilities such as a large community
center, swimming pools, tennis courts in
different locations throughout the neighborhood, and nature trails.
Travis Country is located within the Austin
Independent School District, and is serviced
by all City of Austin utilities. Travis Country’s location is ideal for those who work
south, and is easily accessible to downtown
Austin or The University of Texas at Austin.
Average home prices are about $250,000,
with condos and garden homes in Travis
Country typically selling for less than the
cost of a typical single family home.
