Located just half an hour from downtown Austin, Lakeway is one of the Austin area’s most storied and established bedroom communities. Originally developed as a retirement community of mostly vacation homes in the 1960’s, it has grown and evolved into a thriving city in its own right; as popular with young families as it is with the robust community of empty nesters who still call Lakeway home.
Nestled along the South shore of Lake Travis, Lakeway feels like a world away from the pace of the city, while still being close enough to commute easily, and boasts all the conveniences that make such a journey a choice, rather than a necessity! The area has endless options for dining, shopping, recreation, a lakefront hotel and spa, hundreds of acres of parks, greenbelts, hiking trails and sports facilities.
Located in the distinguished Lake Travis school district, one of the best public school systems in Texas, consistently ranked among the state’s best by both the Texas Education Agency and private ranking systems, and with many prestigious private school options nearby, Lakeway is the perfect place to raise a family with the comforts of the suburbs, but the culture of the city.
With custom luxury homes built over a more than 50 year span, the City of Lakeway is an architecture lover’s dream. Properties here run the gamut from historic “Old Lakeway,” the original development of vintage, mid-century vacation homes for the wealthy and powerful, to custom built modern masterpieces, and everything in between. Tucked into hillsides and overlooking the sparkling waters of Lake Travis, this eclectic blend of old and new speaks to the history and the future of this upscale haven for those looking for a relaxed way of life, with more than a few refined touches.
