Bouldin Creek Real EstateBouldin Creek is a truly historic neighborhood in south Austin, with roots stretching back as far as the 1920s and 30s. Area landmarks include the once-residence of McCarthy-era activist John Henry Faulk. Once considered the southernmost neighborhood of Austin, today, Bouldin Creek is characterized by an eclectic mix of old and new architecture which sits adjacent to the very heart of the city. Bounded by Oltorf Street on the south, Town Lake to the north, and South Congress Avenue to the east, Bouldin Creek is a neighborhood which combines hip, gentrified influence with the famous, diverse Austin culture.
If the United States is often described as a "melting pot" of cultures and peoples, Bouldin Creek ought to be called one as well. The area's many small shops, restaurants, and galleries display influences from many different walks of life. Though Bouldin Creek is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin, it is also next to the South Congress, or SoCo, one of the most well known, celebrated, and eccentric areas in the city. With a short commute downtown, Bouldin Creek real estate occupies a nearly ideal, centralized location.
Not only do Bouldin Creek residents enjoy proximity to downtown, but also to less urban locations. The West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Park offers easy hiking trails with great scenery. A bit further south, Ricky Guerrero Park includes BBQ pits, picnic tables, playgrounds, and even a wading pool.
