Crestview Real EstateCrestview is an older, centrally located neighborhood with reasonable real estate prices and a wonderful community atmosphere. Bounded by Lamar Boulevard to the east, Burnet Road to the west, Anderson Lane to the north, and Justin Lane to the south, Crestview is a remarkable neighborhood which has managed to preserve a family-friendly environment even as steady growth has brought the urban center of Austin to its doorstep.
Crestview was first developed in the early 1950s on land that was once agricultural property. Today, many of its homes reflect the practical, utilitarian mindset of the early developers. Floor plans average around 1100 to 1200 square feet and usually contain 2-3 bedrooms and a bath. These accommodations are perfect for homebuyers seeking a centrally located residence without the high prices of many other central Austin neighborhoods. Furthermore, Crestview, unlike many other older neighborhoods, is still evolving. Construction on the so called Crestview station, a transportation-based complex which will include retail, office, and residential space, has recently begun.
Despite the approach of urban Austin and the associated developments, however, Crestview still deserves its reputation as a great family neighborhood. A quiet, peaceful feeling pervades the area; Crestview is a place where neighbors greet each other on the street, get together for fun events, and help each other out in times of need. It is no surprise that the Crestview Neighborhood Association is a very active organization, sponsoring events year-round. Beverly Sheffield Northwest Park is a wonderful location for residents to gather, boasting sports fields/courts, playgrounds, hiking trails, a pool, and even a fishing pier in its 30 acres of land.
Nor have the local businesses been adversely affected by modern developments. Many of the stores in the decades-old Crestview Shopping Center have been there for years. The neighborhood itself is dotted with a variety of locally owned shops, offering everything from haircuts to groceries.
If a community-oriented yet centrally located lifestyle appeals to you, Crestview may be a great real estate choice. For assistance with your home search in Crestview or any other Austin neighborhood, contact an Austin real estate agent from the Carvajal Group by clicking here.
