Bouldin Creek Homes For Sale
Known for its live music scene, coffeehouse culture and artistic flair, South Austin is synonymous with hip. The Bouldin Creek neighborhood comprises the heart of South Austin.
Bouldin is bordered by the lively South Congress Avenue to the east, the railroad tracks running parallel to South Lamar Avenue to the west, Barton Springs Road to the north and Oltorf Street to the south, while the eclectic South First Street cuts through its center. Just about every home in Bouldin is walking or biking distance to restaurants and cafes, food trailers and coffeehouses; locally owned boutiques, art galleries and vintage clothing shops, and music venues.
Bouldin may boast a central urban location, but just beyond its bustling commercial districts, the neighborhood’s inner, residential streets are peaceful to the point of Mayberry-esque. Urban life juxtaposed with residential calm – that’s why Bouldin has become one of Austin’s most desirable communities. Developed in the 1920s and 30s, many of the neighborhood’s pre-war cottages have been remodeled and expanded, while some have been razed to make way for new constructions. Yet, for the most part, Bouldin residents have successfully strived to preserve the area’s original quaint character. Nature calls here, too.
The neighborhood boasts five parks, and the Barton Creek Greenbelt and the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail are an easy bike ride away. Looking for culture? The Long Center for the Performing Arts and the Dougherty Arts Center are just a few blocks away.
Bouldin lies within the Austin Independent School District, and public school students attend Becker or Travis Heights elementary schools, Fulmore Middle School and Travis High School. The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders lies just over a mile from the neighborhood’s southern border. Fun and family-friendly, Bouldin offers the best of both worlds.
