Treemont Real Estate
Homes in Treemont
You can discover the relaxed West Lake life at its best in neighborhoods like Treemont, where you'll find your money still buys quite a bit in the way of comfort and amenities. Family-friendly, laid-back Treemont lies near the Austin-Rollingwood border, at the eastern end of a triangle bordered by Bee Caves Road, Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway) and Loop 1 (MoPac). The development (including the Villas at Treemont and Oaks at Treemont subdivisions) is a relatively new neighborhood with homes priced between $200,000 and $1 million, with interior living spaces of between 2000 and 5500 square feet.
Befitting its name, you’ll find thousands of mature native shade trees in Treemont's landscape, which add considerably to the gracious atmosphere. Many homes back onto a greenbelt, for added privacy and calm. Typical amenities include cathedral ceilings, Palladian windows, gourmet kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances, center islands, custom cabinetry and granite or marble countertops, covered patios, sprinkler systems, walk-in closets, covered patios, and all the space you and your loved ones have always wanted to set your dreams in motion. The builders have taken great care that these homes not only blend into the surrounding landscape, but work well as a congenial whole.
A Stones Throw from Downtown
Proximity to downtown Austin is one of Treemont's great draws. Zilker Park, Town Lake, and the downtown core itself are just minutes away – commuting could only be easier if you lived at the office! And some of Austin's best shopping, at malls like the Arboretum or the beguiling recent additions of The Shops at Arbor Walk and The Domain, is 10 minutes away. Of course, if you just feel like shopping in the neighborhood, the Barton Square Mall is mere blocks away.
West Lake is the gateway to a Central Texas recreational paradise, with its many parks, private and public golf courses, and wildlife preserves; Lake Travis itself, with its bounty of water sports and waterside diversions, is about 10 minutes away. (And if you want to catch a play or a concert in Austin, that's as easy as your downtown commute.)
Schooled in Eanes
Residents’ children attend schools in the Eanes Independent School District, which is well known not only as one of the best school districts in Austin, but in the entire state of Texas. Schools include Cedar Creek Elementary, Hill Country Middle School and Westlake High School. (Westlake is a US Blue Ribbon School and has won many awards for academic and athletic excellence alike; the elementary and middle schools are equally notable for their quality.)
Come into the hills and take a deep breath. Gaze up at into the branches of the tall oak trees, 40 feet high or more, and sense peace and serenity around you. There is no better place to raise a family in Central Texas than this quiet, elegant neighborhood, where people who have worked hard and are doing rather well for themselves can stake their claim to a piece of the good life. No, Treemont isn't removed from the world – it just feels that way.
