Properties in South Austin

South austin Home buyers will find a lot to choose from in South Austin. (See Austin homes for sale.) The district offers everything from stately pre-World War II homes to eclectic loft housing to comfortable suburban homes with garages. Older neighborhoods like Travis Heights and Zilker Park/Barton Hills represent South Austin's vintage side, with Victorian, Craftsman, and Mid-Century Modern styles, while newer, more modern areas like SoCo and St. Edwards offer more recent homes in mixed commercial-residential settings. St. Edwards is the slightly more affordable of these two neighborhoods and tends to attract a more adventurous artistic crowd, while SoCo is known for its great independent shopping scene.

South Austin Amenities

Zilker Park is considered Austin’s most loved park. Located on the south side of Town Lake at 2100 Barton Springs Road, this 351 acre park features athletic fields, a nine-hole disc golf course, sand volleyball courts, a playscape, the Zilker Zephyr miniature train, canoes, hike and bike trails, andBarton Springs Pool, a spring-fed pool that maintains a temperature of 68 degrees all year. It is home to the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, which is 10.3 miles and always filled with joggers, runners, cyclists, and walkers.

The park also is home to the Zilker Botanical Gardens, which includes the Taniguchi Oriental Garden and the Austin Area Garden Center, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, and the Zilker Hillside Theater. The Zilker Tree lighting ceremony is held annually on the first Sunday in Dec. at 6 p.m. The Zilker Holiday Tree stands 155 feet tall and is composed of 39 streamers, each holding 81 multicolored, 25-watt bulbs, totaling 3,309 lights. The annual Zilker Park Kite Festival is held the first Sunday in March each year.

The Long Center for the Performing Arts (701 West Riverside Drive) is home to the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Austin Lyric Opera, and Ballet Austin, while next door, the Palmer Events Center (900 Barton Springs Road) is used for trade shows, consumer shows, concerts, and other public and private functions. Directly across the street on East Riverside Drive is Auditorium Shores, a popular outdoor concert site that also features a statue of Texas guitar legend and Austinite Stevie Ray Vaughan, who was killed in a plane crash in 1990.

At 3001 South Congress, you'll find St. Edward's University, a Catholic liberal arts university that has for years received high rankings from such magazines as U.S. News & World Report and Forbes for its academic excellence, affordability, masters and adult education programs, and other qualities.

Shopping and Restaurants

Three of South Austin's most important shopping and entertainment streets are parallel: South Congress (SoCo), South First, and South Lamar.

South Congress begins on the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge, the underside of which is home during the summer to the world's largest urban bat colony. At dusk, visitors can gather on this bridge to watch a million Mexican Free-tailed bats as they wake up and fly off to hunt insects.

A mile south, just past the Texas School for the Deaf, is the entertainment district of South Congress (known as SoCo.) Austinites and tourists alike can easily spend a day wandering among thrift stores, antique shops, chic boutiques, cafes, restaurants, dive bars, and music venues. Start the day with a cup of java at Jo's Coffee, lunch at Guero's Taco Bar or Fran's Hamburgers, enjoy a stylish Italian dinner at Vespaio, a cool dessert at Amy's Ice Creams, and finish a late night of shopping and sight-seeing at the 24/7 Magnolia Cafe South. And be sure to check out the food trucks, which can be found in parking lots all up and down South Congress!

Buy a whole cowboy outfit—from hat to boots and everything in between—at Allen’s Boots. If your clothing tastes run more to vintage, or you just want a costume for Halloween, check out Electric Ladyland/Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds. Shop for antiques and funky collectibles at Off The Wall, Uncommon Objects, and the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store.

Rock the night away at the Continental Club, one of the oldest and most respected music venues in town. After a busy day, enjoy a well-earned rest at the Austin Motel, Hotel San Jose, or the Hotel Saint Cecilia, all of which have been renovated and attract a celebrity clientele.

South Congress is known for First Thursday, a street party that occurs the first Thursday of each month. Businesses stay open until 10pm or later, free samples of food and drink are handed out, and bands perform in the parking lots. It's a great excuse to see what SoCo has to offer.

Hill's Cafe at 4700 South Congress, south of Ben White Boulevard, has been around for over half a century, and is known for its hearty, American-style fare, and for being a regular venue for country music acts.

For Sunday brunch, wedding breakfasts, anniversaries, and other special occasions, Green Pastures (811 West Live Oak) offers French and regional upscale fare in a rambling Victorian mansion, set in a shady Southern garden presided over by peacocks.

South First Street is known for a mile or so of Tex-Mex restaurants, including Polvo's, Torchy's Tacos, El Mercado, Jovita's Mexican Restaurant, La Reyna Mexican Restaurant, La Mexicana Bakery, Little Mexico Restaurant, and Taqueria Arandas.

South Lamar is also a popular shopping and entertainment destination. Plus, the ZACH Theatre is on nearby Toomey Road. Popular bars include the Saxon Pub, the Horseshoe Lounge, and the Broken Spoke, a venerable Texas honky-tonk and dance hall. Dining choices include Mr. Natural, the Paggi House, Maudie's Too, Matt's El Rancho, and the 24/7 Kerbey Lane Cafe South. Phoenicia Bakery and Deli sells Middle Eastern foods to-go. South Lamar's shopping options include Lamar Plaza, which features an Alamo Drafthouse Lamar 6 and The Highball.

Barton Springs Road , just south of Lady Bird Lake, is the epicenter of a restaurant district that includes such restaurants as Threadgill's World Headquarters , Green Mesquite BBQ , Shady Grove, Baby A’s, Chuy's, Romeo’s, and the organic and vegan Casa de Luz.
