Luxury Estates in Rivercrest
Adjacent to the Davenport West neighborhood (profiled elsewhere on this website), Rivercrest is an exclusive place. These are showcase waterfront homes with all the amenities buyers in this price class – between $1 and $2 million – expect, including one’s own private dock (or even two).
The Shores of Lake Austin are Home to Rivercrest
Rivercrest is located on the shores of Lake Austin, also known as the Colorado River, just across Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway) from its sister development, Davenport Ranch, and the Austin Country Club. Emma Long Metropolitan Park is close at hand, just across the water.
Eanes ISD Provides Excellent Education
Homeowners’ children attend schools in the highly desirable Eanes Independent School District, widely praised as one of Austin’s best; the schools include Bridge Point Elementary, Hill Country Middle School and Westlake High. (Westlake is a US Blue Ribbon School and has won many awards for both academic and athletic excellence, including a Texas Successful Schools Award for Outstanding Performance; the elementary and middle schools are equally noted for their quality.)
You Can't Beat the Location
As secluded as it feels, Rivercrest’s proximity to Loop 360, FM 2222 and Loop 1 (MoPac) puts downtown Austin only minutes away. The upscale shops and restaurants of northwest Austin (including the Arboretum and Domain shopping malls) and the Hill Country lakes are also equally convenient. And if you ever tire of your waterfront view, the 227-acre Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, with its miles of woodland, grassland and streamside habitats, and hundreds of species of native Central Texas plants, animals and birds, is only about four miles away.
Central Texans are known for their appreciation of nature, and fewer places are better situated for nature lovers than Rivercrest. Many homes were built in the late ‘70s or early ‘80s, and owners have kept up with the times by frequently renewing, refurbishing and adding on. In keeping with true Austin style, the builders and homeowners have taken great care to use native stone whenever possible, and to ensure that the homes blend naturally into the surrounding landscape. The result is a noted harmony with nature that not only applies to the architecture, but soothes the spirits of the people who are fortunate enough to live in these beautiful and gracious dwellings.
