Austin Lakefront Properties

Austin is well-known for its beautiful surrounding lakes. Many years ago, the Colorado River was dammed up in several places to create six beautiful lakes that surround Austin. This series of lakes is known as the Highland Lakes. The six lakes : Lake Austin, Lake Travis, Lake Marble Falls, Lake LBJ, Inks Lake, and Lake Buchanan.

In addition, Lady Bird Lake runs through the heart of downtown Austin, and is surrounded by a hike and bike trail where you can run, bike, walk your dog, or just feed the ducks. You can also go kayaking, canoeing or sculling on Lady Bird Lake.

Lake Austin runs through the very affluent west part of Austin. People who live on Lake Austin are only a twenty minute drive from downtown Austin. Lake Austin is long and narrow and looks more like a river than a lake. This is because Lake Austin was originally the Colorado River. Many people who have riverfront property on Lake Austin say they live on the “river.” These Lake Austin riverfront properties are some of the most beautiful in all of Austin.

A bit further west is Lake Travis, which is only a thirty minute drive from downtown Austin. Watch the sunset from The Oasis while sipping a margarita and enjoy the view! Lake Marble Falls, Lake LBJ, Inks Lake and Lake Buchanan are approximately one hour from downtown Austin.

All of these six area lakes provide abundant real estate investment opportunities.

Austin has always been an environmentally conscious city. Therefore, there are many protected “greenbelts” and wildlife conservation districts in the Greater Austin area that provide access to many constantly flowing springs and creeks. There are many spectacular waterfront properties available in Austin for those who want waterfront property but don’t want to live on a major lake.

Waterfront, lake front and river front properties typically are the most expensive properties in Austin. However, there are some lake view properties with heart-stopping views that rival the lakefront, waterfront and riverfront properties in price and value. Additionally, because of the fluctuations in the housing market, there may be Austin lake front, river front and water front homes in foreclosure and which may be able to be acquired at a great bargain.

Most of the Highland Lakes are stocked with several different species of fish for fishing and game enjoyment. If you’re a fisherman you will be pleased to find that the largemouth bass plentiful.
