West Austin Real Estate
When people think West Austin, they think affluence. Known for luxury homes and lakefront properties, this neighborhood is where the crème de la crème float to the top. Tony subdivisions such as Barton Creek, Davenport, Rob Roy, Seven Oaks, and Old West Austin abound. Quite a few homes sold in this area are second homes for out of state or out of country buyers.
As one of the oldest, and most sought after areas to live in Austin, West Austin boasts some of the best schools in the city. Westlake High School, for instance, was ranked No. 105 nationally out of 27,000 for scholastic achievement.
