Excellence in Austin Real Estate

WEST AND CENTRAL AUSTIN Real Estate Analysis

Jump To:

Immediately west of Downtown Austin and the University of Texas, the  central neighborhoods of Old Enfield, Tarrytown and Pemberton Heights contain the original vintage upscale homes of Austin.  Building began in Old Enfield and Pemberton around 1920, when Austin was a small town growing from the presence of the State Capitol and UT.   Homes in Tarrytown date mostly from the 1930’s to the 50’s.   Many large new homes have also filled in these charming neighborhoods in the last several years as homebuyers seek newer construction and architectural styles with a close-in location.  Modest cottages start in the $400’s while estate homes and new construction properties exceeds $1 million and can top $3 million or more.   The nearby neighborhoods of Clarksville and Deep Eddy are charming and eclectic and are dotted with bungalows from as early as 1910, along with condominiums and more affordable in-fill new construction on smaller lots.  Condominiums are an option in these neighborhoods ranging from the simple and small to the large and extravagant.  Downtown Austin, UT, Lake Austin,  Lady Bird Lake, Pease Park, Muni Golf Course are all at West Austin’s doorstep.

Other Central Austin neighborhoods offer luxury new homes and renovated vintage properties as well.  South of Downtown, in the 78704 zip code, the Travis Heights and South Congress areas as well as the neighborhoods around Zilker Park and Barton Hills have many upscale homes and condos  in a true Austin setting, with abundant local character.  Some  homes are more than a century old, but most date from the 1920’s to 1940’s with a mix of new homes from traditional to modern.  Hyde Park and Aldridge Place are popular neighborhoods north of Downtown and the University of Texas campus.  Homes date from the late 1800’s here, and many have been restored and upgraded for today’s lifestyles.  Beyond Hyde Park, the neighborhoods of Rosedale, Allandale, Crestview, Highland and Brentwood are popular among buyers looking for more affordable homes in Central Austin.  Except for in-fill new construction, homes here date mostly from the 1940’s to the 1960’s.
