Rob Roy on the Lake's boundaries are; to the east, Original Rob Roy, Bee Cave Road to the south, Riverhills Road to the west and Lake Austin to the North. Developed a short time after original Rob Roy in the early 1980's and continuing today.

There is also a section along Lake Austin that offers waterfront lots with easy access to the water directly across from Travis County's City Park. Many homes have Lake Austin views from different streets in the area. Homes in the area have sold from the high $400,000's to over $5,500,000.

Hi Russell!

Craig & Paula Thanks for dropping by, I really got the Localism bug and the Rob Roy neighborhoods are areas I've worked since I started in the business 20 years ago! I also live in the Eanes school district and the neighborhood is only 5 minutes from our home!

Russell, Rob Roy looks like a wonderful place to live.  I had good intentions on this contest but real estate got in the way (lol).

Russell, I commented on your Rob Roy on the Creek post and just wanted to add that all of the neighborhood information is so well presented and you did a great job including some very good pictures!

Marchel I know what you mean, the same thing happened to me last time around but this time I decided to finally get busy posting about the places i work! Good to see you my friend!

Scott I appreciate your compliment, I decided to write about these three areas of Rob Roy because I have sold homes in all three neighborhoods and stay busy there!

Dale All three of the Rob Roy areas I've mentioned are very good neighborhoods and an added bonus is that they are located in the Eanes School District!

William Thanks, we obviously think alike and I appreciate the compliment on the post!

Karen I really thank you for stopping by! You are one of the acknowledged BEST localism bloggers  and I want to thank you for always sharing great tips on how it's done!

Dorie Like Karen, I have always liked the way you creatively write about the neighborhoods where you work! Thanks again for helping me with the Kompozer program, hopefully I will "get it" soon!

Hi Rebecca Yes, it took awhile to get me going on Local posts and I have to say that I am a enjoying writing about the areas where I live and work!

Pippa Glad to hear it because you could do some great posts about The Woodlands!

Allysoun Thanks and thank you for urging me to get busy on these posts!

Thank you for sending a link to your blog. Your neighborhood articles are far better than many of the generic things we find on the internet! We will be in touch soon!

Posted by Zach & Claire over 8 years ago

Zach and Claire, you are very welcome and thanks for the compliment!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 8 years ago

Russell, I am just looking over your different neighborhood profiles and you have done a very good job. People looking for homes in your neighborhoods would do well working with you because of your extensive experience!

Posted by Scott Harvey over 8 years ago

Scott, thanks, I have made every effort to post about the areas where I actually live work and play. Westlake is a wonderful place to live!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 8 years ago

Russell, great summary of Rob Roy on the Lake. Update it when you can to tell prospective buyers about the wonderful Hill Country Galleria which is even closer than Barton Creek. That is a huge plus in my book!
