Once a sleepy haven for retirees, Lakeway TX has in recent years blossomed into a vibrant and growing community of almost 14,000 residents. If real estate is about location, Lakeway has just about everything you could want. With its close proximity to Lake Travis, residents can experience some of the best boating and golfing in Central Texas, set within the beautiful Texas Hill Country. If that weren't enough, homes in Lakeway are just a short 30 minute drive to downtown Austin.
Homes in Lakeway offer a range of options from cozy cottages to the magnificent estates of the newer, exclusive Lakeway neighborhoods such as Rough Hollow and The Preserve at Lakeway. Property values are not surprisingly high, with lower-cost condo options starting in the low $200,000's to homes and estates that top 2-3 million. However, with an average home cost of around $450,000, Lakeway real estate is considered by many to be a bargain for all that it offers.
In addition to the obvious lifestyle benefits of living close to Lake Travis and its opportunities for boating, skiing, kayaking and swimming, Lakeway also features a 64-acre city park with plenty of hiking trails, sports fields and a dog park. In addition to grocery shopping and a Regional Medical Center, Lakeway residents can find upscale shopping less than a ten minute drive away at the Hill Country Galleria. Amenities such as these, combined with a small town population size can make owning a home in Lakeway feel like living in your own cozy resort town every day.
