Travis Heights Homes For Sale

by REATX Realty in Neighborhoods

travis heightsTravis Heights is located in the heart of Austin and situated high on the bluffs overlooking the Colorado River and downtown Austin. While it was once the place where Austin’s wealthy business class entertained, it later became a transient neighborhood of students, artists and liberal activists. Recently, it has transformed into an exclusive enclave of the people who love Austin enough to preserve its character and integrity at all costs, including the “keep Austin Weird” vibe.

But don’t think the liberal activists and artists have gone anywhere. Since they grew up and made some serious money in Austin’s high tech boom, they’ve created an urban Utopia that surprises you at every turn. The population of Travis Heights is highly educated, liberal and professional. travis heightsHome prices in Travis Heights range from the 300’s to well over a million dollars where one bedroom bungalows built in the 1920’s sit comfortably next to antebellum mansions breathtakingly restored.

Don’t like the purple house? Then look next door at the gorgeous stone work on a home that looks like it was plucked from a fantastical village in Germany’s Black Forest-cuckoo clock included. Or maybe you prefer something that Frank Lloyd Wright may have envisioned or a Craftsman style home with a big front porch and a rose garden. And yes, that was a giant tree house you just passed.

The landscaping is gorgeous on many of Travis Heights’ homes and the love for the area is evident in the tender care given to the gardens and architecture. Gnarled live oak trees, some 500 years old, twist from between the homes and shade the streets from the Texas summer sun. And don’t be surprised to hear a rooster greeting the dawn. In fact, don’t be surprised at anything you might see or hear in this stunning and eclectic one-of-a-kind place found only in Austin and in the desirable 78704 zip code. travis heightsTravis Heights is truly an Austin treasure with Big and Little Stacy Park, a sparkling clean pool and lots of open space and walking trails.

It is a hilly neighborhood bordered by IH-35 on the east, Congress Avenue to the West and the St. Ed’s neighborhood to the north. The Zilker Park hike and bike trails and Austin’s vibrant South Congress and downtown entertainment districts are an easy stroll or bike ride away. If you’ve never taken a walk through Travis Heights on a beautiful Texas day-you just haven’t lived. So come on up for a visit or park your car and take a walk to see beautiful old Austin as it was meant to be. And if you stay out past dark, you can still hold your lover’s hand or steal a kiss under the light of one of Austin’s legendary 120-year-old moonlight towers located just off East Side Drive in beautiful Stacy Park. Explore this unique part of Austin today.
