Great Hills

Since the mid-seventies, Great Hills has developed into a sizable swath of gated communities and luxury apartments nestled into hillsides. The area may have once felt far-flung, but as Austin’s sprawl continues to spread, it provides easy access to the city’s newest retail hubs.

What to Expect

A diverse community that feels tucked-away.

Great Hills, which is close to a number of large parks, attracts a variety of people, many of whom work for the giant tech companies that have also put down roots in Austin. While more or less sheltered from the city’s hubbub, the neighborhood is edged by US-183 and Loop 360, two primary thoroughfares.

The Lifestyle

Outdoor pursuits that take the edge off longer commutes.

Though anchored by the private Great Hills Country Club, which has a PGA-worthy eighteen-hole golf course, the neighborhood also spotlights its splendid Great Hills Park, a public gathering place spanning more than eighty acres in the Bull Creek Watershed.

The Market

Good-sized homes with ample lawns by custom builders.

Lots offer a little more breathing room here than in Austin’s denser nucleus. Whether Spanish Colonial or neo-eclectic in style, most homes have two stories and two-car garages as well as broad manicured lawns.
