Lake Austin Homes
Lake Austin runs just west of downtown and is one of the most sought after areas for real estate in the Austin Market. Lake Austin winds through some of the city’s most exclusive residential areas and is lined with some of Austin’s most luxurious homes. Many of these beautiful homes include boat docks and lush landscapes making your dreams a reality. Lake Austin is very long and narrow and remains at a constant level throughout the year. LCRA has periodically lowered Lake Austin at the City of Austin’s request since the 1950s to help curb the growth of nuisance aquatic plants and to allow lakeside residents to perform construction and maintenance. This usually will last for a couple weeks of the year and helps keep the lake enjoyable for everyone. Owners of Lake Austin real estate enjoy swimming, boating, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, and fishing in the lake’s clean waters. Lake Austin stretches 22 miles between the Mansfield Dam and the Tom Miller Dam. Some of the restaurants on Lake Austin include Hula Hut, Abels on the Lake, & Ski Shores.
