Crestview Homes For Sale
It’s about six miles from downtown Austin and is bounded by Anderson Lane on the north, North Lamar Blvd. on the east, Justin on the south, and Burnet on the west. Major Austin Metro routes 1, 3, and 5 serve the area allowing quick and easy access if you want to leave your car at home.
Crestview is also bike friendly and very walkable. Hidden in the middle of Crestview is a commercial zone with Austin’s best kept secret, Little Deli. The mall also houses an IGA grocery store, dry cleaners, acting studio, barbershop, jewelry manufacturer, salon, and a pharmacy. This is how a neighborhood mall should be! It doesn’t dominate the surrounding houses and it’s filled with independent businesses. From this center point leafy streets stretch out through rows of remodeled and original bungalows from the 1950s. Compared to neighborhoods closer to downtown, Crestview isn’t full of modern, minimalist, glass walled multistory homes.
Crestview’s age demographic is wide; from band mates sharing a house, to young families, to retired couples who have been residents for decades. Austin Independent School District (AISD) serves the area with Brentwood Elementary School, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School. However, the North Central area of Austin is speckled with alternative education options as well.
Anderson Lane, the Northern boundary of Crestview, is the main commercial area. It’s a departure from the calm neighborhood streets and small local businesses with a few exceptions like Genuine Joe Coffee House. The main attractions are within, not on, Crestview’s boundaries. But its proximity to main thoroughfares with quick access to commercial zones simply enhances it’s quality of being tucked away from the rest of Austin.
