Living on Lake Austin
Lake Austin is a constant-level lake, which means that you will have water, drought or no drought. This also makes it a perfect place for wakeboarding, wakesurfing, or water skiing. Its river-style curves mean you can always find a straightaway that’s blocked by the wind and offers calmer water. Kayakers and canoers will love the long expanse, 20.3 miles of water with only a gentle current. With a surface area of 1,599 acres, there is plenty of room for everyone.
Around Lake Austin, you will find several luxury neighborhoods including Tarrytown, known for its historic homes, Steiner Ranch, with its resort-style amenities, and West Lake Hills, an area known for its suburban feel with tree-lined streets and a family-friendly atmosphere.
Lake Austin real estate offers a wide variety of architectural styles, designs, and living spaces. Homes for sale in Lake Austin range from condos and townhomes to villas and even sprawling estates. No matter what your vision of a perfect lakefront home is, you can find it here.
