Rob Roy Real Estate
Rob Roy is an established luxury development in the heart of West Lake Hills, sited along a bend in the Colorado River (Lake Austin) between the river and Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway), just north of Bee Caves Road. (There are several sister subdivisions in the area in addition to the “original” Rob Roy, including Rob Roy on the Creek, Rob Roy on the Lake, and Rob Roy Rim Condominiums, which are described elsewhere on this website.)
Rob Roy is Situated in the Heart of the West Austin Hill Country
When Austinites dream of laid-back, luxurious West Lake living, they’re thinking of a place like Rob Roy. By choosing to live here, residents are making a clear and resounding statement about their values: these are demanding people who prize comfort and peaceful surroundings, good taste and elegance, but also place importance on living in harmony with nature, with easy access to the best that Austin and Central Texas have to offer. Living in Rob Roy, you’re 10 minutes from downtown, five minutes from schools and golf courses, and 10 to 15 minutes from Lake Travis. Some of Austin’s best shops are close at hand in upscale outdoor malls like The Arboretum and The Domain. The magnificent Wild Basin Wilderness Park nature preserve, ideal for hiking and biking, is just minutes away on the other side of Loop 360.
The Rob Roy Community Smacks of Luxury
Homes in Rob Roy, a gated community, were typically built in the 1980s and have been impeccably maintained and improved upon by their owners. The homes are built to impress on your first sight of a grand façade set back amid tall shade trees. The good impression continues beyond curb appeal when you tour inside, with typical features like cathedral ceilings, parquet floors, open kitchens with granite counters, a breakfast bar and top-end appliances, jetted tubs in the bathrooms, and plenty of spacious rooms available for whatever suits your pleasure – guest rooms, game rooms, media rooms, wine rooms. Step into the backyard and marvel at the unspoiled Hill Country views, and closer in, perhaps an in-ground pool with impeccable landscaping. The homes make extensive use of native stone, the better to help it blend seamlessly into the landscape. Many homes feature large, sun-washed atriums and enclosed porches (with great views, of course) which raise spending a lazy Sunday afternoon at home to a high art form!
Rob Roy Children Attend the Acclaimed Eanes ISD
Residents’ children attend schools in the prestigious Eanes Independent School District, widely acknowledged as one of Austin’s finest. Schools include Bridge Point Elementary, West Ridge Middle School and Westlake High. St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, a highly regarded private preparatory school for grades 6-12, is also located right in the neighborhood.
