Looking for a beautiful neighborhood to live in Austin, Texas? The south Austin area has a lot to offer. My favorite area south of the river is called Travis Heights.
Framed in 100-300 year old graceful oak trees, Travis Heights features a beautiful park, creek, walking trail, play ground and swimming pool located throughout the middle of the neighborhood. Homes in the area are craftsman style homes built primarily between the 1890’s-1940’s. Residents of south Austin take great pride in living in this area and typically boast a bumper sticker on their car that says “78704 not just a zip code but a way of life".
Having lived in the area myself, I loved walking in the park, swimming in the pool year round and enjoyed the ambience the area exudes. Nearby Congress Avenue features fantastic eclectic shopping, restaurants, music, clubs, walk-up dining trailers, a monthly thriving flea market, and a street life that is unique to the south Austin.
There are several neighborhood schools located in Travis Heights. Students can typically walk, bicycle or ride the bus to school. Home prices in this neighborhood range from $275,000.00 on up to several million dollars. Here you can find a range of single-family homes, condos, a few duplexes and homes with historic designations. Having sold homes in this area for the last 26 years, I would love to take you on a tour of this vibrant, thriving neighborhood.
Located just a stones throw to downtown Austin and the 6th street music scene come see me and enjoy an introduction to an area that has so much to offer.
