About the neighbourhood
This beautiful property, while spacious and private, is not remotely located. Perfectly nestled in the scenic hills of Lakeway just west of the Austin City limits (central downtown Austin is approximately 18 miles), this property's location is ideal for a vacation home getaway. It's westside (of Austin) venue makes it higher and dryer, with splendid views, cleaner air, plenty of natural setting, and more average days of sun than central Austin. The area also has great dining, shopping, entertainment, music, recreation, lake, and leisure activities (many under 5 minutes away)! Regular guest favorites include the outdoors, dining out, shopping, wineries, craft beer and BarBQ excursions, exploring Lakeway-Austin, and enjoying Lake Travis.
Getting around
You should definitely have a car in order to fully enjoy all that the area has to offer. Driving is a wonderful experience in the hill country (with hills, winding roads, and beautiful scenery).
