If you’re looking for an Austin-area neighborhood that’s close-in, attractive, and still affordable, you might consider moving to Oak Hill or Travis Country (and no, that’s not a typo – the name really is Travis Country).
Located in Southwest Austin, these two communities offer a range of housing in pleasant, natural surroundings. Buyers can get an older home built in the 1980s starting around $180,000. More luxurious homes start around $600,000.
Unincorporated Oak Hill is a series of related neighborhoods with active homeowner associations. The Oak Hill Association of Neighborhoods (OHAN), for example, helped to persuade the City of Austin to build the Will Hampton Branch Library.
Capital Metro provides shuttle bus service to the area for those who commute to downtown Austin. Oak Hill sits within the Austin Independent School District, and residents in Austin’s city limits use City of Austin services and utilities, while those in the Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) use Pedernales Electric Cooperative and other sources of water, such as Hill Country Water Supply.
Travis Country started as a sleepy neighborhood in the 1970s that was revitalized when it was rediscovered in the late 1990s. Buyers can find both new and older homes in the area, as well as condos and garden homes. Located north of the Southwest Parkway and west of MoPac, Travis Country is close in, with protected natural greenbelt areas all around it.
Because it was built over the Edwards Aquifer, the designers planned to leave large green space throughout the area to meet environmental concerns. As a result, there is much dedicated parkland, with plenty of room for play. There are also facilities such as a community center, swimming pools, tennis courts in different locations throughout the neighborhood, and nature trails.
Travis Country also sits within the Austin Independent School District, and is serviced by all City of Austin utilities. Travis Country’s location appeals to folks who work south, and is easily accessible to downtown Austin or The University of Texas at Austin. Average home prices are about $250,000, with condos and garden homes in Travis Country typically selling for less than the cost of a typical single family home.
If you’re thinking of moving to Travis Country, Oak Hill, or anywhere in the Austin/Central Texas area, Elephant Moving & Storage has the expertise, tools, equipment, supplies, and facilities to make it a smooth move — commercial or residential.
