Spicewood Springs/ Balcones, Great Hills, Anderson Mill
Homebuyers who want an Austin metro home in a beautiful setting with excellent schools, recreation, shopping, and employers should look no further than northwest Austin and the Spicewood Springs, Great Hills and Anderson Mill areas.
Homes in all three neighborhoods are generally in the same median price range, starting at around $225,000 and going to more than $600,000. There’s also a mix of older and new homes, offering a lot of opportunities for buyers. Accessible to downtown, the 360 corridor, and north Austin/Round Rock, all three areas are very appealing to those who work in the technology community.
Three school districts serve the neighborhoods, including the Austin Independent School District, Leander Independent School District or the Round Rock Independent School District – and area schools get high marks for a quality educational experience. There are also plenty dedicated parklands, recreational facilities, activities, entertainment, and great restaurants in the Arboretum and Domain area – both of which are minutes away.
The area also offers excellent golf facilities at the area country clubs, including Great Hills Country Club, which has an upper-end course, tennis facilities, a pool and an upper scale golf course; Balcones Country Club, which offers 36 holes of golf, with an 18-hole golf course at Balcones and access to its sister club, Spicewood at Balcones, which has another 18-hole course.
