Rosedale Homes For Sale
The Rosedale neighborhood is a pulsing area of North Central Austin. Much of the neighborhood used to be farm land with little evidence remaining besides a privately restored log cabin at 4811 Sinclair Avenue. It’s surrounded by colorful pier and beam homes which cause you to miss the fact that you’re standing next to a historical marker unless you know what you’re looking for. If you keep wandering through the neighborhood, eventually you’ll walk into Draught House Pub. It’s filled with students and professors, doctors and lawyers, as well as artists and architects. When it’s crowded enough that the patrons spill outside you’ll find everybody talking to someone they didn’t know five minutes earlier.
The population of Rosedale is skewed towards professionals, some with families, but many with a graduate student living in their garage apartment. Boutiques and Bakeries dot the north part of Rosedale while old houses converted into restaurants and offices dot the south. Austin Independent School District serves the area with Highland Park Elementary School, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School. Rosedale is bounded by 38th and 35th street to the south; MOPAC to the west; Hancock, Burnet and 45th to the north; and North Lamar Blvd. to the east. Running down the middle of Rosedale is Shoal Creek.
The Shoal Creek hike and bike trail will take you to Ladybird Lake through downtown. The east side of Rosedale has Austin Metro bus routes 1, 3, and 5 which run past the UT campus continuing to downtown. Rosedale is also home to Austin masterpiece Kerbey Lane Cafe. Located at Kerbey Lane and 38th Street, it’s a 24 hour restaurant with pancakes that cause people to fall in love, queso that makes people fall in love again, and local art hanging on the walls that make people fall in love a third time.
Rosedale is a neighborhood filled with ambitious, driven people who are highly educated. You won’t see a swing set in every yard if you go for a walk but you’ll see someone creating a low impact flower bed, welding a wrought iron sculpture, or installing solar panels on their roof.
