West Lake Hills
Incorporated as an independent suburb in 1953, West Lake Hills, with its hilly terrain and tranquil residential streets, only feels far-flung from Austin’s bustling core. A mere six miles west of downtown, this family-friendly pocket is a sought-after community.

Palatial hillside homes and Friday-night fandom.
Busy days, quiet nights, and ample amenities.
Being surrounded by the natural Hill Country splendor–and those views.
Multi-million-dollar estates but also modest fixer-uppers.

The little more than a thousand homes in this area were largely built in the seventies and eighties, when development was booming, but there are plenty of restored and new-build contemporary stunners tucked into these wooded hills. A one-acre minimum is required to build a home here, and you can expect generous interior floor plans too.
