Living close in to Austin has many advantages, especially when looking at increasing drive time as Austin’s population continues to increase. But for those who want the joys of rural living, buying a home close to downtown and the university area means buying a home in West Lake Hills.
“The reason why we moved here was that it felt like we were living in the country, but we were only five minutes from downtown. West Lake Hills has such a nice quiet feeling that it’s almost like living in the country, even though it’s pretty much in the middle of town.”
In addition to its close proximity to Austin, another reason many families are attracted to living in West Lake Hills is that it is part of the outstanding Eanes Independent School System, which has received the rating of “exemplary” by the Texas Education Agency. Currently, there are six elementary schools, Hill Country Middle School and West Ridge Middle School, and Westlake High School.
