Living in the North Lake Travis communities of Lago Vista, Jonestown or Point Venture isn’t just about buying a house – it’s about an entire lake lifestyle. With two 18-hole golf courses and lake living, it’s clear that buying a home here offers plenty of recreational opportunities.
The North Lake Travis area has its own property owners association, which owns 10 private waterfront parks, a fitness center, three boat launches, tennis courts, and a pool. The amenities alone attract many new homebuyers, as does the lake with its boating, fishing and swimming.
The Lake Travis lifestyle
Lago Vista is located on a peninsula jetting into Lake Travis. Its boundaries are the lake on the west and the east, the Travis County line, RM 1431 and Boggy Ford, as land continues to be annexed by the city. Houses range in price from the high 100s to well over $1 million, with the median price range about $250,000. Lago Vista is the place for active people and is known for its daylong 4th of July, open to the public event on the shoreline of Lake Travis.
Jonestown is located next to Lago Vista, and this small, rural community is attractive for its tucked-away location. Its rural, friendly atmosphere is very appealing to those who do not want to live in a densely populated area but want or need the convenience of a larger metropolitan area. With its proximity to Lago Vista and the Texas Hill Country, Jonestown has offers lots of amenities for residents, as well as a relaxed lakeside lifestyle.
Point Venture is a gated community at the end of Lohman Ford Road that offers a variety of choices for homebuyers. An established community of houses and townhouses, Point Venture is also experiencing increased popularity as more people become aware of the lifestyle on the lake, which includes boating, fishing, swimming and a 9-hole golf course.
