Westlake Real EstateWestlake Hills is a small, affluent community of some 3,000 residents located about 6 miles west of downtown Austin. Many of the residents are employed in scientific and technological fields. A great place for families and retirees alike, Westlake is an area with some of the most beautiful and sought-after real estate in Austin.
Education holds a very high standing in the Westlake community. The local Eanes Independent School District has the distinction of being regarded as one of the top 25 districts in the entire state of Texas. Furthermore, many of its schools have achieved either recognized or exemplary ratings as evidence of the high quality education they provide. The excellence of its schools makes Westlake immensely popular among families with children.
Being an affluent community, Westlake offers residents easy access to an extensive list of amenities, including miles of hiking/biking trails, boat docks on Lake Travis, the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and the well-known Zilker Park. Golf is also a great attraction; the Barton Creek Resort and Spa has four 18-hole championship-style golf courses, designed by the likes of Arnold Palmer and Ben Crenshaw.
Both MoPac Expressway and the Capital of Texas Highway, two major thoroughfares, run close to the Westlake neighborhood. These, combined with a location close to downtown, ensures that Westlake residents won't miss out on any of Austin's famous culture and nightlife. Like Austin itself, Westlake boasts an eclectic collection of eateries and shops selling everything from fine cuisine to pink flamingos.
