Westover Hills Real Estate
If you're fond of a family-friendly suburban lifestyle yet still like to be in the thick of the action, we've got a great neighborhood for you.
If you like homes on quiet streets with lawns, tall oak trees, quality schools, easy access to great shopping, and a safe, friendly atmosphere, and you're looking for your piece of the American dream at an affordable price, we think you'll find Westover Hills, in northwest Austin, an extremely appealing option.
Westover Hills is an established neighborhood of attractive, well-maintained homes, both older and newer models. Since it's close to the intersections of Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway), Loop 1 (MoPac) and Highway 183, the downtown commute is easy (20 minutes in non-rush hour traffic) and major employers like IBM and Freescale are even closer at hand.
Although Austin home prices remain on the rise, you can still find great deals in Westover Hills. Homes are priced to suit most budgets, ranging from $250,000 to $500,000, with living spaces from between 1500 and a very roomy 4000 square feet. Common amenities include large backyards with plenty of shade trees, and interiors with large, sunny rooms, cedar closets, hardwood floors, spacious kitchens with granite countertops and up-to-date appliances, and much more. Westover Hills' older homes have typically been well-maintained and carefully remodeled.
Residents’ children attend schools in the Austin Independent School District. Schools include either Doss or Hill Elementary (both Blue Ribbon schools), Murchison Middle School, and the highly regarded Anderson High School. St. Theresa’s School, a well-known Catholic private institution for elementary and middle school grades, is also right in the neighborhood. Many churches are quite nearby, as is the Dell Jewish Community Center, a major player in Austin's Jewish religious and cultural life.
If shopping is your pleasure, you're in prime territory. Austin's major upscale shopping malls, like the Arboretum and Lakeline Mall, are in close proximity, along with the newest additions to the scene, The Domain and The Shops at Arbor Walk. Mesa Drive, a local commercial artery featuring many fine restaurants (including Mirabelle and Mesa Ranch), fun casual eateries, and eclectic shops, is also only minutes away.
Locals delight in the Westover Hills Club, which bills itself as "one of Austin's best-kept secrets." This family-oriented private club boasts a 25-meter pool with four swimming lanes; tennis courts; indoor basketball and volleyball courts; sports camps for kids; yoga classes; and popular member-only holiday parties with food and live music. Low membership fees keep the club affordable for almost anyone. In addition to the club, local residents delight in weekend recreation at a number of nearby parks and nature preserves, boating on nearby Lake Austin, or the many delights of Lake Travis, only a bit farther away.
