Legend Oaks Real EstateLocated south of William Cannon Drive between MoPac Expressway and Highway 290, Legend Oaks is a private, master planned neighborhood with a variety of options for homebuyers searching for an area with a secluded feel but convenient amenities.
Compared to many other Austin neighborhoods, Legend Oaks is a relatively recent development. As such, most houses in Legend Oaks are less than ten years old, and construction on new homes is ongoing. Although Legend Oaks may lack the long history of some other Austin neighborhoods, it does provide its residents with the latest modern conveniences and comforts for easy living. For those more interested in apartments or condominiums, several complexes can be found in close proximity to Highway 290.
One of Legend Oaks' great selling points is the beauty of its environment. Found at the "gateway" between urban Austin and the more rural Hill Country, Legend Oaks offers residents easy access to both the city and the country. Popular outdoor attractions found nearby include Krause Springs, a spring and swimming hole; Pedernales Falls State Park, a beautiful site featuring camping, swimming, and hiking; and several private parks reserved solely for Legend Oaks residents.
On the other hand, because of its location close to two major highways (MoPac Expy. and Hwy. 290), Legend Oaks is no more than a 10- to 15-minute drive away from downtown Austin. This means that residents of Legend Oaks can enjoy the wildflower-dotted landscapes of Texas Hill Country without having to endure a long commute to take part in the eclectic culture and nightlife that Austin is famous for.
Legend Oaks is a widely sought-after place to live, particularly among families, for whom the excellent record of local schools is a strong draw. In 2006, homes in Legend Oaks sold for an average of around $230,000, or about $105 per square foot.
