Central Austin suburbs are all about location. Because of their proximity to downtown and the rest of the city, housing prices in these Austin neighborhoods are usually stable. North of UT’s campus is a pleasant area. In this tree-lined neighborhood, students, families, and retirees live among Victorian and 1950s cottages. The combination of modern architecture and design with historic buildings and long-established businesses creates a uniquely Austin ambiance. These sites are handy for folks who wish to spend more time at Hancock Golf Course, the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, or UT without sacrificing their working commute. Central Austin’s relaxed lifestyle gives it a distinct charm, which, combined with young professionals and the University of Texas, give Austin a “college town” atmosphere, with music venues, honky-tonks, and yoga studios among luxury boutiques and national merchants.
