The neighborhoods that surround Austin’s core share this in common: location, location, location. With easy access to downtown, and just about anything else in Austin, it’s no wonder that demand for housing in these charming neighborhoods tends to remain high, regardless of the market.
The areas just north of the University of Texas campus have a wonderful neighborhood feel. Students, families, and retirees coexist in this tree-lined setting where you can find old Victorian homes mixed with 1950s cottages.
The interesting juxtaposition of modern architecture and trendy design against historic buildings and long-established neighborhood businesses helps to create a rich, authentically Austin vibe.
Depending on where you work, these neighborhoods will likely offer shorter commutes, and that means more time to hang out at Hancock Golf Course, the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, or explore the cultural and athletic scenes on the UT campus.
