A Look at the Great Hills Subdivision in Austin, Texas

A Look at the Great Hills Subdivision in Austin, Texas

The beauty of Austin, TX does not lie solely in the bright lights of the city. It is found, also, in the communities surrounding the bustling downtown area. These communities are small subdivisions that offer large benefits for the interested homebuyer. They are quiet havens in a noisy metropolis. Such is the case for Great Hills, located in Travis County in Northwest Austin.

History

Great Hills’ past is the past of Austin. As the city grew subdivisions arose. They, in this instance Great Hills, housed the Texas urbanites that could not or would not live in the most crowded areas of the capital. With time, Great Hills became more than a subdivision. It became a community, beckoning to hikers, mountain bikers, families and individuals. A country club and golf course were erected, and residents and visitors alike flocked to it for social interaction.

Development is a constant in the area. New homes are transforming this subdivision from a small community in which to live into a popular place for all. It could be only a matter of time before Great Hills’ history outpaces Austin.

Economy

Much like its history, Great Hills’ economy is rooted in its city. Therefore, many of the available jobs are in the technology and research industries. As science and manufacturing continue to advance, so does Austin’s economy. However, technology is not the only employer in the area. Universities and schools offer numerous opportunities, not only for work but also for further education. Large organizations, which are coming to Austin with more frequency as of late, are options as well.

Real Estate

Great Hills is a rapidly growing subdivision of Austin. Continual development has created a flux of available homes – homes, which given the location, variety and quality, won’t be on the market for long.

The houses range in style from 1,500 square foot ranchers to 5,000 square foot custom estate homes. They are priced anywhere from 200,000 to 800,000, meaning whatever your budget you are sure to find a house that can be your home in Great Hills.

Attractions

The obvious attractions of Great Hills are the popular destinations of Austin – stadiums, music halls, shopping centers, etc. But you needn’t journey out of Great Hills to find enjoyable pastimes. An 18-hole golf course serves as one of the community’s favorite locales (and wildlife’s, too!). A pool, tennis courts and playgrounds keep those who aren’t devoted to the nine-iron active, and miles of greenbelt trails and picnic areas ensure that every nature lover is kept happy year-round.

Great Hills is a place to live, play and raise a family. It is one of the best ways to live in the city yet maintain a slightly more natural feel. Its budding developments open the door for numerous possibilities, encouraging you to dream of what your family home should be and making that dream a reality.

Put Great Hills on the top of your list as you scour Austin for the perfect house at the perfect price.

The Allandale Neighborhood in Austin Texas

The Allandale Neighborhood in Austin Texas

Allandale is one of the most relaxing and comfortable communities within the city limits of Austin. The residents take pride in their community, with a very active neighborhood association that strives for community improvement and provides ample opportunities for activities and involvement. Allandale provides for its homeowners and their families a suburban feel within a thriving urban area.

History

The Allandale community has roots that extend back to the 1930’s, but at that time it was considered a suburb and outside the city limits. The area that is now known as Allandale was at one time owned by George W. Davis, who was given the land in 1841 by the President of the Republic of Texas. The grant of 3,154 acres was given to him for his service to the then-Republic in the battle at San Jacinto. While the family has long since sold the majority of their land holdings; a few descendants of Davis still live within the area. The historic Davis family cemetery can be found on Vine Street.

Economy/Jobs

As a part of the city of Austin, the community of Allandale has the benefit of the current area growth in the economy and job market. The city has seen steady economic growth, while the rest of the country is in a decline. Unemployment in the region is at an impressive 3.3 percent, within the month of April 2008. The top industries in the area are services and trade, although some of the major area employers are within the computer technology sector. Austin has many major computer and technology corporations in the area, including IBM, Dell, and AMD.

Real Estate

Real estate in the neighborhood of Allandale is a bit pricier than some areas in the city of Austin, on average, with a median listing price of around 4,000, as of mid-May 2008. Even with this high median price, affordable homes within the ,000 price range can sometimes be found. Existing area homes are mostly older structures, with updated features and renovations. As the area is very community minded, upkeep of the homes is very consistent, keeping property values stable. New homes are being built in the area, as well, though these tend to be a bit higher in price than existing homes.

Attractions

As Allandale is situated within the City of Austin, residents have access to all of the attractions and amenities of the city. Known for its live music, the nightlife in the city is unsurpassed. The city has wonderful shopping and dining selections, pleasing every taste and palate. There are outdoor activities, such as botanical gardens and hiking trails, as well as culturally rich museums and festivals throughout the year. The lakes in the area allow those who love water sports and fishing to fully enjoy their leisure time. Even families with small children have plenty of options with a wonderful zoo and city parks to take advantage of.
