Bryker Woods Real EstateBryker Woods, located south of 35th Street between MoPac Expressway and Lamar Boulevard, is a quiet neighborhood dating back to the early-to-mid 20th century. Today, Bryker Woods is known for being a community of small, cozy houses and warm interactions. Narrow, tree-lined streets encourage neighbors to meet, greet, and get to know each other. Residents welcome this impulse; many frequently cite the peaceful, neighborly atmosphere as the single most attractive characteristic of the area. The active Neighborhood Association and local Parent Teacher Association are testaments to the strong community feel of Bryker Woods.
The majority of homeowners in Bryker Woods are families and young professionals, who enjoy the surprisingly quiet ambiance of a neighborhood no more than 10 minutes away from downtown. Though close in proximity to Austin's urban center and one of its major thoroughfares, Bryker Woods has only recently begun to see intrusions by modern real estate developers and motorists. Another positive characteristic for families is the stellar reputation of local schools such Casis and Bryker Woods Elementary Schools.
In addition to the attractive seclusion of Bryker Woods real estate, residents also have access to several nearby parks and outdoor recreational facilities, including Shoal Creek Park, which covers part of the Shoal Creek Hike - Bike Trail; Seiders Springs Park, named for the natural springs still flowing from its limestone rock formations; and Bailey Park, with features such as a wading pool, lit tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, and a large covered pavilion.
In 2007, the American Planning Associate named historic Old West Austin, a region which includes Bryker Woods, as one of the Great Neighborhoods in America.
