Barton Creek

This area just 15 minutes away from downtown Austin takes its name from Barton Creek, which winds through the verdant 4,000-acre landscape of gently rolling hills.

Located on the edge of Texas Hill Country, Barton Creek combines a scenic setting and tranquil atmosphere with an easily accessible location, making it one of the most desirable places to live in Greater Austin.

Barton Creek is in an environmentally sensitive area and has been developed with conservation and sustainability in mind. Residents are also encouraged to adopt eco-friendly practices such as water conservation, the use of native and adapted native landscaping, and integrated pest management.

Then there are the amenities, which are exceptional. Most of the homes here already come with social membership. Enjoy four golf courses, a world-class spa, superb dining, and more at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa. Shop at Barton Creek Village, hit the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and reconnect with nature at the over 4,000-acre Barton Creek Habitat Preserve.

Parents who want only the best education for their children will be glad to know that Barton Creek is within the Austin and Eanes independent school districts, both of which have many quality schools. There are also several private schools in the area, including the prestigious St. Michael’s Academy and St. Gabriel’s School.

Real Estate

Housing options are varied as well as luxurious. Aside from newly built homes, Barton Creek has plush condos with panoramic views and easy access to main thoroughfares. Choose from executive homes right on the golf course, sprawling hilltop estates, build-ready home sites, and so on.

Barton Creek’s over 5 square miles of land is strewn with almost two dozen smaller, highly exclusive subdivisions, each with its own distinct style.

Hill Country and Mediterranean-style villas sit on one-half to over one-acre lots in The Woods, some with views of the Fazio Foothills Golf Course. The Woods II’s estate homes are between Fazio Foothills and the Crenshaw Cliffside golf courses and those in The Woods III are up in the hills and next to Barton Creek itself.

Newer neighborhoods such as Amarra Drive and Verrano Drive offer new construction and may still have home sites available. Then there are neighborhoods like The Fairways and Calera Court, which feature detached Craftsman-style and Mediterranean-style condos, respectively. Barton Creek also offers interval ownership options at The Owners Club.
