Waterfront Homes - Austin TX

Waterfront homes are very popular in the Austin area. Some people just think of Lake Travis when they think waterfront but Lake Travis is only one of a string of 7 lakes cumulatively called the Highland Lakes of Central Texas which includes Lady Bird Lake, formerly known as Town Lake, Lake Austin and Lake Travis as well as Inks Lake, Lake Buchanan, Lake LBJ and Lake Marble Falls.

Closest in to downtown Austin is the Ladybird Lake. Many condo projects offer waterviews and the Westlake Hills area is a very central location to enjoy waterfront. Lakeway off 620 remains popular as well as the new Rough Hollow Lakeway lakefront community and Yacht club. A new Lakeway Regional Medical Center is going in nearby. Some people love Apache Shores with its lower prices and Indian Creek Preserve with hiking trails.

Waterfront SOUTH LAKE

The Reserve at Lake Travis and Barton Creek Lakeside are in the south lake area of Lake Travis in Spicewood,TX. Briarcliff, TX is a great waterfront area. Briarcliff has a marina with boat slips and Willie Nelson's Golf Course is nearby. Spicewood TX has many luxury homes, many with boat slips. Lakeway,TX Costa Bella, Thurman Bend Estates, Vineyard Bay and Flintrock Falls. Hudson Bend. Popular Steiner Ranch has a gated waterfront community of Bellagio Estates on Lake Austin.

Lake Travis Waterfront - NORTH LAKE

For the North Lake area try Volente,TX and Leander,TX for waterfront home areas. Next by driving would be Jonestown TX for the Hollows or gated waterview neighborhood of Northlake Hills off Reed Parks Rd. and then waterfront communities around Lago Vista TX and Point Venture TX. The Highland Lakes Country Club in Lago Vista is great. You will enjoy the Highland Lakes Golf Course at 20552 Highland Lakes Dr. Coplin's Cove in Jonestown is waterfront and allows horses too. Turn down Singleton Bend and there are great waterfront homes in Paradise Cove on deep water.

From Lago Vista take scenic 1431 over to to Marble Falls TX and the Max Starke Dam.

Next is Horseshoe Bay on Lake LBJ, Granite Shoals and Sunrise Beach Village going all the way up to Kingsland,TX. Lake LBJ was named after President Lyndon Baynes Johnson. Beginning at Highway 29 with the Buchanan Dam is Lake Buchanan, the second largest and furthest upstream of the Highland Lakes. Enjoy catching some Striper (Striped bass) in Lake Buchanan. The Peninsula on Lake Buchanan is a beautiful development on the shores of Lake Buchanan with a marina.
