Austin has a little bit of something for everyone. As we have talked about before on our York Real Estate blog, you are more likely to find certain types of housing in some areas or neighborhoods than others. For example, if you are looking for a home in one of the most popular school districts in Texas, you have probably heard of Westlake. All homes in Westlake are in the Eanes Independent School District, a favorite among Austin families. There are also some good private schools nearby. For those religious about high school football, Westlake is a popular choice.
Westlake has a variety of neighborhood communities with diverse home construction. With a strong emphasis on education, many Westlake area homes are ideal for professional couples with young children. Since Westlake is not a far commute from Downtown Austin, this makes it convenient for working parents. Some neighborhoods also offer a scenic view of Austin’s beautiful skyline and close proximity to great shopping, fine dining and fun family activities. Occupations for Westlake residents are diverse, with an average household income about $117,000 as of the last available census figures.
Part of Westlake’s charm is that while some neighborhoods have a more suburban feel, you can still find the scenic hills as a backdrop to homes with a more spacious and open atmosphere. You will find homes with and without pools, garages and fireplaces.
