Westview on Lake Austin Real Estate
West Lake living doesn’t get any better than at Westview on Lake Austin.
With price tags of $750,000 to $2 million plus, these are extraordinary, grand dwellings (from 3500 to 7000 feet of living space) built with top-of-the-line materials (often to custom specifications), exceptional landscaping and hilltop views, and all the luxuries buyers in this price range expect. Although this exclusive gated community isn’t (by definition) for everyone, the investment potential is superb, and since prices have been rising rapidly over the past couple of years, it makes sense to buy earlier rather than later if you’re looking in this market.
Buyers in Westview on Lake Austin can expect to have room, and rooms, to spare for a variety of pursuits (including exercise rooms, game rooms and wine rooms), hardwood floors, crown moldings, cathedral ceilings, gourmet kitchens with center islands, large backyards with swimming pools and spas, abundant shade trees, gazebos and covered patios. Many of the homes are on culs-de-sac, adding to the sense of privacy and specialness one enjoys. The highest-end properties boast spectacular views of Lake Austin and Mount Bonnell, and may resemble a French country chateau or Tuscan villa, with exquisite finishes and small touches done with the greatest attention to detail and style.
If you can bear to tear yourself away from the delights of your estate and grounds, you would only be about 15 minutes by car from downtown Austin, 25 minutes from Lake Travis, 17 minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and less than 10 minutes from a variety of fine restaurants and shops in the area. (Local shopping malls include upscale Davenport Village, and the many shops and restaurants along Highway 183 in northwest Austin are only a bit farther away.)
Austinites are well-known for their enjoyment of pursuits out-of-doors, and Westview is well-positioned for outings on weekends – or any day – to the many opportunities for camping, golfing, fishing, hunting, boating and scuba diving (on any of the Highland Lakes from Town Lake to Lake Buchanan). Of course, Lake Austin itself is practically in the backyard, and boat slips are just minutes away.
This outstanding neighborhood has schools to match. Westview on Lake Austin is part of the exemplary Eanes Independent School District, well known as one of Austin’s finest. (The ISD’s motto, “Committed to Excellence,” is borne out: Westlake High is a US Blue Ribbon School and has won many awards for academic and athletic excellence alike, and the elementary and middle schools are equally noted for their quality.)
In the end, life on Westview at Lake Austin is about appreciating the best that life has to offer: the song of birds, the soft rustle of breeze through the trees on the Central Texas hilltop, the views of the blue water below. There is great satisfaction in knowing that you’re fortunate enough to live in an abode that was built with the utmost care, that provides room and space enough to enjoy day-to-day life to the fullest. In short, it’s about the art of living. Isn’t it worth looking into?
