West Lake Hills Homes For Sale
Luxurious, charming, and planted alongside one of the area’s sparkling waterways, West Lake Hills exemplifies everything we love about Austin real estate. Because it was founded in the mid-twentieth-century, this neighborhood enjoys a highly coveted location at the intersection of the city and the Hill Country. Homeowners enjoy natural boundaries like Lake Austin, but can still hop on major roads to access the urban buzz of The Live Music Capital of the World.
Because West Lake Hills is more of an established small-town than a formal subdivision, the local amenities are less “clubhouse” and more “country club.” Residents of this Austin neighborhood enjoy close proximity to the Austin Country Club, a world-class facility with a 180-acre, 18-hold golf course, plenty of tennis courts, a large heated pool, a marina and boat club, and a clubhouse with dining and meeting rooms and a large ballroom.
Homebuyers seeking real estate in West Lake Hills should be prepared for a luxury price tag: though properties in this neighborhood can occasionally start in the $500-$700k range, homes below $1 Million are the rarity. Most range somewhere between $1.2 Million and $1.5 Million (with some launching up as high as $15 Million). For these exclusive prices, however, buyers will find a diverse inventory of one-of-a-kind luxury properties with historic vibes and ultra-modern conveniences.
Perhaps one of its most alluring features, West Lake Hills enjoys impeccable school zoning. The entire neighborhood is zoned to attend the highly ranked Eanes Independent School District, including Eanes Elementary School, Bridge Point Elementary School, Barton Creek Elementary School, Cedar Creek Elementary School, Forest Trail Elementary School, Valley View Elementary School, Hill Country Middle School, West Ridge Middle School, and Westlake High School.
