Homes in Austin, Texas boast some of the state's most beautiful views, with forested hills entwined by three Highland lakes: Lady Bird Lake (formerly known as Town Lake), Lake Austin, and Lake Travis. Luxury properties located near these lakes can offer spectacular lakeviews and accessibility, without the high premium of being on the water.

Jess Tisdale’s Austin condo overlooks Lady Bird Lake. “Blue skies over rolling hills thick with oak and juniper, and the lake carving its path between them—imagine waking up to that every morning. That’s Austin, Texas.”

There are three bodies of water in Austin: Lady Bird Lake (formerly known as Town Lake), Lake Austin, and Lake Travis.

Lady Bird Lake runs laterally through the city, marking the division between north and south Austin. Neighborhoods with views of Lady Bird Lake include downtown Austin, Travis Heights, Bluffington, and Stratford Place. For more adventurous homebuyers, East Cesar Chavez and Riverside may bring some unique opportunities.

Lake Austin begins at Tom Miller Dam and continues through the winding hill country until it reaches Lake Travis. Lake Austin is a constant water-level lake, meaning that the level is controlled by the LCRA. Some of the finest luxury homes in Austin can be found on Lake Austin due to the beautiful scenery and close proximity to the central business district.

Lake Travis is a moderately sized lake 20 miles northwest of Austin. Although it's farther out than Lake Austin, Lake Travis has no shortage of luxury homes or moderately priced homes in rural areas. The stunning Hill Country views will rival anything that can be found on Lake Austin with an added level of seclusion and privacy.

About Lady Bird Lake

aerial view of Lady Bird LakeLocated in central Austin, Lady Bird Lake is the easternmost of a succession of reservoirs located along the Colorado River known as the Highland Lakes. Lady Bird Lake runs laterally through the city, marking the division between north and south Austin.

The lake was created in 1960 for the purpose of cooling the Holly Street Power Plant and providing recreation for the city. Today, with the power plant long decommissioned, Lady Bird Lake primarily is used for recreation and flood control.

Of the three Highland Lakes described here, Lady Bird Lake is the smallest, shallowest, and closest to downtown. Its 468 acres begin at the foot of Lake Austin’s Tom Miller Dam, curve around downtown Austin, and conclude at Longhorn Dam.

Like Lake Austin, it is a constant-level lake. With a maximum depth of only 18 feet, most motorized boating is prohibited, rendering it a key recreational area for fishing, rowing, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing, picnicking, and kayaking.

Interesting fact? Previously known as Town Lake, Lady Bird Lake was renamed after the passing of Lady Bird Johnson, the former First Lady of the United States. She was a longtime Austin resident deeply dedicated to its beautification.

Real Estate Overlooking Lady Bird Lake

Lady Bird Lake Condo BuildingResidential real estate overlooking Lady Bird Lake includes chic urban lofts and downtown condos in luxury high rise condominiums, in addition to a handful of cliffside estates with Capitol and downtown views.

Jess Tisdale and her husband work in the Second Street District downtown and appreciate the convenience of living in a high rise nearby. “Our condo in the W is so close, and it has breathtaking views of the city and the lake. You should see the sun set on the water, or the fireworks on the Fourth of July,” she remarked.

High-end homes and luxury mansions loom along Stratford Drive on the steep southwest side of Lady Bird Lake (in the neighborhoods of Stratford Place and Bluffington), while luxury high rise condos are offered on the north side by Sabine on 5th, 360 Towers, Four Seasons Residences, The W Hotel and Residences, Milago AMD, the Towers of Town Lake, and more.

The demand for exclusive lake and city views and the value of close proximity to downtown Austin living makes real estate with Lady Bird Lake views some of highest priced in Austin. These luxury lakeview properties range from $250K to over $10 million.

The zip codes overlooking Lady Bird Lake are 78702, 78741, 78704, 78703, and 78746. These lakeview properties are served by several acclaimed school districts, including Austin ISD and Eanes ISD.

Attractions Near Lady Bird Lake

Attractions around the lakeshore include the Hike and Bike Trail, which offers 10 miles of crushed-granite trails for runners, walkers, and cyclists. Roberta Crenshaw Pedestrian Walkway, Pfluger Bridge, and Congress Bridge provide exclusive pedestrian and bicycle access over Lady Bird Lake.

Auditorium Shores spreads from the illustrious Long Center for the Performing Arts to the lakeshore and hosts a variety of festivals, triathlons, and other Austin-y events. A larger than life memorial at Auditorium Shores honors late bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughan.

sunset over Lady Bird Lake

Downtown, the Second Street and Market Districts offer a plethora of retail and dining options, while Red River and Sixth Street are rife with live music entertainment. The Whole Foods World Headquarters stands at 5th and Lamar for grocery items.

Shoreline at Lady Bird LakeAlso on the lakeshore, Zilker Metropolitan Park holds fame worldwide for annual events like the Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival. The park also includes a historic moonlight tower (used annually for the Zilker Holiday Tree), Zilker Botanical Gardens, Austin Nature and Science Center, Zilker Hillside Theatre, the Zilker Zephyr miniature train, and aquifer-fed Barton Springs Pool.

On the north side of the lake, historic Deep Eddy Pool attracts locals and tourists for its refreshingly cold spring-fed water, and just next door is verdant Deep Eddy Organic Community Gardens. The city’s 130-year-old Austin High School also fronts the north bank of Lady Bird Lake, as does Festival Beach.

Housed in the award-winning Waller Creek Boathouse, the Austin Rowing Club offers lessons and rentals for all ages. On the west side of the lake, the Rowing Dock and Zilker Park Boat Rentals do the same. Further west, the 13 cypress-shaded acres of off-leash dog park Red Bud Isle are beloved by city dwellers and canines alike.

Finally, the Ann W. Richards Congress Bridge spans the eastern portion of Lady Bird Lake and holds worldwide renown for containing the largest urban bat colony. Over 750,000 Mexican free-tailed bats reside beneath the structure, attracting over 100,000 tourists annually.

About Lake Austin

Sunset over Lake AustinFormerly Lake McDonald, Lake Austin was the first large, manmade reservoir in Texas. It was formed in 1893 after the completion of the Austin Dam, which toppled in a flood seven years later. In 1939, the Lower Colorado River Authority built Tom Miller Dam, which stands to this day.

Part of the Highland Lakes chain on the Colorado River, Lake Austin begins in northwest Austin at Mansfield Dam (Lake Travis) and ends 21 miles downstream at Tom Miller Dam, where it feeds into downtown Austin’s Lady Bird Lake. It has an area of 1,830 acres and a maximum depth of 75 feet.

Unlike Lake Travis, Lake Austin is a constant-level lake filled with aquatic vegetation such as hydrilla and watermilfoil. Like Lake Travis, however, it is deeper than Lady Bird Lake, covered with boathouses and docks, and full of Largemouth Bass, Sunfish, and Catfish.

Lake Austin is used for flood control, water supply, electrical power generation, and recreation. Recreational activities include jet skiing, boating, waterskiing, boat tours, camping, picnicking, and fishing. Because the water clarity is better, scuba divers generally prefer Lake Travis.

Real Estate Overlooking Lake Austin

lake austin housesLake Austin winds through some of Austin’s finest residential areas. Lakeview homes range from palatial estates to luxury mansions, homes, and condos. Cliffside estates may feature high-end trolley systems for personal lake access.

John Hildebrandt lives in the Aqua Verde neighborhood in a high-end home overlooking Lake Austin. “We get all the beauty and none of the bother, or the lake noise,” he confessed. “If we wanted a boat, there are slips available down the hill. But why have your own when the neighbors will invite you along anyway?”

Offering shimmering lake views and recreational opportunities, tranquil surroundings, and a location minutes from downtown, the premiere real estate overlooking Lake Austin can range from the upper $200s to over $14 million.

Lakeview homes on Lake Austin homes are served by several acclaimed school districts, including Austin ISD, Eanes ISD, and Lake Travis ISD. Zip codes with Lake Austin views include 78703, 78746, 78731, 78730, 78733, 78732, 78638, and 78734.

Attractions Near Lake Austin

lake austin boat docksAside from the landmark Pennybacker Bridge, which arcs 350 meters across Lake Austin where it intersects with Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360), attractions of Lake Austin generally revolve around recreation. A three-lane boat ramp beneath this bridge is a popular place for Lake Austin boat entry. Next door, the historic Austin Country Club (Austin’s first) offers a luxury clubhouse, a 180-acre golf course, 10 lighted tennis courts, boat slips, a heated swimming pool, and more. Across the lake, County Line is a local hotspot for BBQ.

Walsh Boat Landing , located by Tom Miller Dam, offers lakefront restaurants like Mozart’s Coffee Roasters and Hula Hut Tiki-Mex Restaurant, in addition to a historic boat ramp. No boat? Nearby Sun & Fun offers Lake Austin boat rentals. Across the lake, Lake Austin Marina offers a full-service, LEED-certifiable marina with 168 slips as well as a ship store.

Mayfield Nature Park and Preserve borders an inlet of Lake Austin and is known for its peacocks and gardens. Just next door, The Contemporary Austin at Laguna Gloria offers art exhibitions and classes for all ages. Mount Bonnell, looming high above the lake, offers a steep hike rewarded by towering sunset lake views and stargazing.

Walsh Boat Landing

For an afternoon of shopping, residents often head to the Arboretum or Barton Creek Square Mall. For a little R&R, award-winning Lakeside Lake Austin Spa is westward and offers specialized spa treatments and a luxury resort.

Emma Long Metropolitan Park , one of the largest parks in Austin, also borders Lake Austin and offers boat ramps, volleyball courts, and several swimming areas shaded by cypress trees. Nearby Ski Shores Café has been an Austin lakefront landmark since the fifties!

About Lake Travis

view from lake travisLocated northwest of Austin in the city of Lakeway, Lake Travis belongs to a group of six man-made reservoirs along Texas’ Colorado River known as the Highland Lakes.

The longest of the three mentioned here, Lake Travis actually begins at Max Starcke Dam in Burnet Country and snakes 63 miles toward Lakeway, where it meets Mansfield Dam and feeds into Lake Austin. Lake Austin, in turn, supplies Lady Bird Lake at Tom Miller Dam.

Lake Travis boasts over 270 miles of shoreline. The surface area of Lake Travis takes up 18,930 acres, making it 10 times larger than both Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake combined. It is also deeper, with a maximum depth of 210 feet. Lake Travis boasts the clearest and coldest water of the three.

Created by the construction of Mansfield Dam in 1941, one of Lake Travis’ primary functions is flood control, characterized by a water level that remains constantly changing. It also serves a vital role in electrical power generation and as the water supply for the nearby city of Austin and the surrounding metropolitan area.

For anglers, Lake Travis has been stocked with several species of fish, including Largemouth Bass, Guadalupe Bass, White and Striped Bass, Catfish, and Sunfish. Recreation on Lake Travis also includes boating, kayaking, jet-skiing, sailing, parasailing, swimming, scuba diving, picnicking, camping, and zip-lining.

Real Estate Overlooking Lake Travis

Lake Travis EstatesWith its laidback lifestyle, rolling hill country beauty, and half-hour proximity to Austin, residential real estate overlooking Lake Travis remains in high demand. Its neighborhoods offer thousands of high-end and moderately-priced homes, with hundreds more on the way.

Karen Weaver lives in Rough Hollow, and her home overlooks the marina. “It’s more than beautiful. The schools are new, we’re minutes from the Galleria, and the country club is right next door. It’s paradise.”

The stunning lake views will rival anything that can be found on Lake Austin, with an added level of seclusion and privacy. Offerings include waterview lots, homes, condos, and luxury estates, and prices range from the low $100s to the multi-millions.

Many feature outdoor living areas, pools, and patios that take advantage of the sweeping lake views. Elite offerings include guest casitas, equine facilities, and private vineyards. Lakeview cliffside homes on Lake Travis also are available.

Prominent neighborhoods with lake views include Northshore on Lake Travis, The Hollows, Reserve at Lake Travis, and Rough Hollow. Zip codes for the area include 78732, 78734, 78726, 78641, 78654, 78645, 78669, and 78638. Lake Travis homes are served by several acclaimed school districts, including Lake Travis ISD, Lago Vista ISD, Leander ISD, and Marble Falls ISD.

Attractions on Lake Travis

Lake Travis offers innumerable attractions, from fine restaurants and marinas to sylvan city parks and premier golf courses.

Well-known lakefront restaurants include Gnarly Gar, The Oasis, and Hudson’s on the Bend. Many of these restaurants are accessible by boat after a fun day in the sun and offer breathtaking sunset vistas. For a movie, a trip to Whole Foods, or an afternoon of shopping, residents often head to nearby Hill Country Galleria.

Lake Travis also boasts over 20 marinas, from Highland Lakes Marina and Commanders Point to West Beach Marina and Sail & Ski Yacht Club. And, renting a boat is easy with watercraft rental sites like Aquaholics, Just for Fun, and Daybreak. The Shore Club, aka Volente Beach, offers live music, beach volleyball, a swim-up bar, and a lakeside waterpark.

With seven golf courses in just two zip codes, Lake Travis offers a remarkable amount of golfing opportunities. These include private courses like The Hills and Lakecliff on Lake Travis and public ones like Point Venture Country Club.

For a day at a lakeside park, residents can head to 323-acre Arkansas Bend. It offers a boat ramp, nature trails, restrooms, and campsites. With over nine miles of shoreline, Pace Bend Park features high limestone cliffs and impressive lake views.

Nude sunbathing and swimming is permitted in Hippie Hollow Park, which holds the distinction of being the only legal clothing-optional park in Texas. Bob Wentz Park at Windy Point is a favorite location for water sports like windsurfing, sailing, and scuba diving.
