Rob Roy on the Creek Real Estate
Life lived between a stream and a golf course – what could be better? Then there’s the view…and the view…and the view.
This secluded West Lake Hills development’s name refers to Barton Creek; the waterway defines the neighborhood’s southern border, with Bee Caves Road at the northern boundary. The Camelot and Knollwood neighborhoods (profiled elsewhere on this website) are immediately adjacent. Driving through the winding lanes of West Lake, your overriding impression is that of tranquility. Stress fades away as you turn the corner and approach your spacious home in the hills. Here, as nowhere else, is where you can truly relax.
Rob Roy on the Creek Homes
While some homes here sell for up to $3.5 million, others can be had for as little as $400,000. Living spaces range from a spacious 3,000 to a huge 10,000 square feet.
Typical amenities include large wraparound back decks with pool and spa, media/game rooms, top-end appliances, granite countertops, cathedral ceilings, very large yards (up to an acre), and mature shade trees. Many homes have open plans, with one room flowing into the next with naturalness and ease. The highest-end properties are true country estates in look and feel, with breathtaking panoramic Hill Country views and handcrafted construction methods meant to last. These homes feature kitchens fit for a professional chef; executive libraries with a fireplace; expansive, professionally landscaped grounds; highest-quality hardwood floors; and a thousand little details that make all the difference. Exteriors take full advantage of native Texas limestone to help the homes reflect light and blend into the landscape.
Location, Location, Location
West Lake Hills is about as ideally situated within Greater Austin as any neighborhood can be. A quick zip across Bee Caves Road and a straight shot north up Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway) brings you to some of the Austin area’s best shopping at upscale malls like The Domain and The Arboretum. Follow Bee Caves Road west and pick up 620 North, and you’re soon exploring the recreational delights of Lake Travis, both on the shore and in the water. And downtown Austin, whether your intent is business or pleasure, is only 10 minutes away.
Golf At Crenshaw Cliffside
If it’s golf you’re after, the highly regarded Crenshaw Cliffside golf course (designed by well-known professional golfer Ben Crenshaw, a native Austinite) at the Barton Creek Resort & Spa is just the other side of the creek. The private, family-friendly Lost Creek Country Club (offering golf, tennis and swimming) is also just minutes away.
Renowned Schools Are Just a Minute Away
Residents’ children attend school in the highly desirable Eanes Independent School District, widely praised as one of Austin’s best. The schools include Forest Trail Elementary, West Ridge Middle School and Westlake High School, all of which have been recognized for superior academics.
That’s life on Barton Creek, in a quiet, peaceful spot where streets rise to panoramic vistas, the backyards have even better views of the creek and the Hill Country woods, the living is easy and a lucky few can have it all. It’s a rare quality, but Rob Roy on the Creek has it: When you’ve arrived, you can at last settle in and feel at home, in your Hill Country retreat, so removed, yet so close by.
