Cypress Creek: A Little Bit of Country in the Big City

Available real estate in Cypress Creek.

A small but vibrant community on the border of Texas Hill Country, Cypress Creek has seen significant growth in recent years due to its convenient location and country charm. Nearby Austin offers employment opportunities and a world-class spectrum of entertainment, while at home residents enjoy the quiet life, with deer and armadillos occasionally spotted in passing. Active and responsive, the Cypress Creek Homeowners Association (CCHA) is devoted to keeping Cypress Creek a warm and welcoming community while ensuring property values in this area remain stable. The CCHA has funded several neighborhood improvements and beautification projects in recent years. In addition, volunteer committees organize Neighborhood Watch Groups, participate in adding and upgrading landscaping and fencing in public areas of the neighborhood, and ensure open lines of communication between the CCHA and homeowners in Cypress Creek. Annual Greenbelt Clean-Up events bring the community together to clear brush and promote a cleaner, healthier environment.

Home prices start at around $200,000. Split levels and two-story homes dominate the market, while the Austin-style open floor plan remains popular as an interior layout choice. Cypress Creek homes offer many of the same amenities of pricier Austin area properties while costing much less. Granite countertops, custom windows and luxury floor treatments are just a few of the available options for home buyers. Lots vary in size, but are generally larger in size than the average for the Austin area, due in part to the influence of the working ranches that once occupied this area. Whimsically named streets and tree-lined cul-de-sacs provide a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in this mature neighborhood.


Cypress Creek children attend the prestigious Leander Independent School District (LISD), recognized for excellence by the Texas Education Agency. Younger children attend Naumann Elementary; parents are encouraged to play an active part in their children's education through numerous activities and parent-teacher interaction. Older students attend Cedar Park Middle and Cedar Park High Schools. Sports events and extracurricular activities provide an opportunity for community building while supporting local students and their achievements.
