Long Canyon Real Estate
Just off Route 2222 in northwest Austin, between Loop 360 and RR620, Long Canyon is a small, exclusive neighborhood that has the best of both worlds: a private, secluded feel, and easy proximity to the city bustle. The rural delights of the Hill Country are also within easy reach, but you just might find that the panoramic canyon views to be had here bestow the feel of a vacation getaway without leaving the comforts of home – in fact, many residents consider Long Canyon to be just about the most beautiful neighborhood in Austin. It’s a place where Hill Country luxury living finds its full expression, where people live in harmony with nature and at peace with themselves; simply put, you might find that life in Long Canyon is life the way it’s supposed to be lived. And you’ll also find that it’s surprisingly affordable.
Houses in Long Canyon
Long Canyon’s elegant homes are situated on large lots (typically one to two acres or more, with spacious front lawn and patios), allowing for plenty of room to spread out and live the good life outdoors as well as in. Mature trees, including plenty of live oaks, give the area plenty of shade as well as character.
Homes in Long Canyon range from about $500,000 to upwards of $1 million, with from 2000 to 6000 square feet of living space. Many higher-end houses have the feel of a country estate or luxury retreat, with such desirable features as travertine floors, cathedral ceilings, gourmet kitchens with center islands and marble countertops, in-ground pools, jetted tubs and much more; outdoor amenities may include in-ground swimming pools, hot tubs, gazebos, and decks with spectacular sunset views! Many homes also back up onto a greenbelt for added beauty and seclusion. Plenty of light, open floor plans, and, of course, those great Hill Country views are hallmarks of Long Canyon homes.
Long Canyon Location
As it’s convenient to Loop 360, MoPac and Highway 183, downtown Austin is an easy commute, and Lake Travis and Lake Austin are both practically in the neighborhood. Local retreats like Emma Long Metropolitan Park, Bull Creek District Park, and several area golf and country clubs are also just minutes away.
If you want to talk shopping and dining opportunities, besides the many shops and fine restaurants of downtown Austin, Long Canyon is also close to the upscale Arboretum, Davenport Village and Gateway shopping centers, as well as the large Lakeline Mall complex and the Shops at Arbor Walk.
Long Canyon is also convenient to many area employers, including Dell, IBM and Freescale. The attractive 32-acre, three-building Park 22 office complex is also right in the neighborhood.
