The Lake Area is one of Austin’s best-kept secrets. Decades ago, a string of lakes were formed by a series of dams built along the Colorado River. These lakes, known as the Highland Lakes, provide hydro-electricity, flood control, water storage and supply as well as serving as a year round hot spot for water-related activities. The limestone cliffs and shoreline along Lake Travis are the perfect backdrop for boating, fishing and more. Lakeway is a city along the shores of Lake Travis and features a marina; airstrip, two golf courses and tennis facility that it shares with its gated neighbors in The Hills of Lakeway and Flintrock Falls. Beautiful Tuscan style architecture abounds in Lakeway’s Flintrock Falls neighborhood with homes ranging from the $300’s for villas to $1 million+ for grand estates. The Falls golf course winds throughout the neighborhood where the designers carefully laid out the building sites to maximize as many homes as possible on the golf course. Residents of Flintrock Falls enjoy gated security and golf at two Jack Nicklaus courses, The Falls course and the Hills course plus access to fine dining at two clubhouses and use of the World of Tennis facility featuring a community pool, tennis and workout facilities. This neighborhood is part of the acclaimed Lake Travis Independent School District and is close to Lakeway Regional Medical Center and shopping at the Hill Country Galleria.
