Once a sleepy little retirement village, the Lakeway/Lake Travis area has quickly become a thriving community with a healthy mix of young working families, retirees and second-home weekenders.
A recent demographic study shows 40 is now the median age of this vibrant area where local residents now enjoy access to all the amenities of big city living, award-winning school districts and state-championship athletic programs. The Hill Country Galleria and other retail projects in the area meet the shopping demands of the growing population and support a number of the growing list of dining choices. From cute little food trailers to fine dining establishments, this area boasts favorites such as Hudson's on the Bend, Carlos-N-Charlie's, Mizu, Maudie's and more. The completion of St. David’s Healthcare ER in Bee Cave and the Lakeway Regional Medical Center (opening this year) will satisfy the area’s long awaited need for a local hospital. Parks and preserveland abound and The Backyard hails as one of the most highly sought-after live music venues in all of Austin. Now with even more restaurants, retail, and even a Whole Foods planned to open in 2012, this Lake Travis area leaves little to be desired.
Diverse neighborhoods from Briarcliff to Vineyard Bay allow homeowners in the Lakeway/Lake Travis area easy access to the lake and hill country surroundings. The entire area boasts either direct water access or just a short drive to paradise. Several highly recognized communities such as Falconhead, Rough Hollow and The Hills of Lakeway offer a diverse choice of homes, amenities and property pricing. The master-planned community of Steiner Ranch in Leander ISD sits just north of Mansfield Dam and offers residents easy access to Austin via FM 2222, as well as both Lake Austin and Lake Travis.
With breathtaking views of Lake Travis and the surrounding hill country, this recreational mecca is truly a sight to behold. Whether your passion is hiking, biking, horseback riding, boating, tennis or golf, this is the ideal area to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
