Lake Austin Real Estate

View ListingsMore Info

Located just west of Downtown and home to some of the most stunning luxury real estate in the area, Lake Austin embodies just about everything we love about Texas’ one-of-a-kind capital city. With its narrow shape and constant water levels, this body of water offers the perks of both a lake and a river, offering sweeping views, towering limestone cliffs, and plenty of opportunities for boating, fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Due to the narrow shape of the lake, there is plenty of shoreline to explore. The surface area is 1,599 acres and the maximum depth is 75 feet. The water is notably clean. From Tarrytown's beloved historic homes and neighborhood businesses to Steiner Ranch's resort-style amenities and West Lake Hills' iconic tree-lined roads, every bit of Lake Austin’s shoreline is peppered with character and charm. Due to the wide variety of home styles and sizes, waterfront properties can range anywhere from $900K to over $9 Million.

 More About Lake Austin Homes For Sale


As one of the few constant-level lakes in Texas, Lake Austin offers homeowners the opportunity to enjoy the perks of lake life every day of the year. Its unique, narrow shape winds through the western section of the city, making its way through downtown and into the Hill Country...meaning plenty of shoreline for luxury lakefront homes. The inventory of architectural style, design, and square footage is incredibly diverse, including everything from townhomes and condos to Tuscan-style villas and sprawling mansions. 

A few of our favorite neighborhoods include Tarrytown, Steiner Ranch, and West Lake Hills. West Lake Hills is a charming, established neighborhood located (you guessed it) on the western banks of Lake Austin and offers prices that tend to hover around $1 Million. Tarrytown offers high-end condos and restored historic homes around the same price. Steiner Ranch, on the northern side of the lake, is a sprawling neighborhood with a Hill Country resort feel. Prices range anywhere between $500k to over $2 Million. 

Though its location is smack-dab in the middle of the city, don’t be fooled: Lake Austin’s family-friendly vibes and towering limestone cliffs still feel like Hill Country paradise. Hikers and bikers love heading to the 360 Bridge suspended over the lake as well for views that can’t be beat. Some of the favorite local lake activities include a leisurely day on the pontoon, heading out on the wakeboard or water skis, or spending a day fishing for largemouth bass. (However, be warned: this lake is cold— which also makes it an incredibly popular relief from the hazy Texas heat.) 

Schools in the Lake Austin area are also a notable draw, with top-rated districts like Eanes ISD (voted the #1 in Best School Districts in Texas by 

As a whole, residents of Lake Austin tend to feel as though they are a part of a small town within a big city. Neighborhoods are tight knit, local businesses thrive on regulars, and the whole area carries a distinctly charming “Lake Austin” culture. Head to Mozart’s Coffee Roasters, Barton Springs, or Abel’s on the Lake to see what we mean.
