Enjoy a private hilltop retreat.

Welcome to Northwest Hills

Northwest Hills is a high-end suburb just outside of Austin’s more dense urban center. Situated on a hilly expanse with stunning views of the surrounding Hill Country and nearby Lake Austin, this community has quickly established itself as one of Austin’s best neighborhoods for those who want to get away from the bustle of the city and enjoy a more convenient, relaxed, and quiet lifestyle. That said, Northwest Hills isn’t incredibly far from the city’s best attractions when you do need to commute or simply want to visit, with Downtown only about a fifteen-minute drive away. Homes in Northwest Hills are gorgeously designed and offer substantial square footage, with plenty of sprawling land to enjoy. With convenient shopping options nearby, great highway access, and a stunning natural setting, Northwest Hills is one of Austin’s most popular options for high-end suburban living.

People & Lifestyle

Northwest Hills is most popular among families who want space to grow and enjoy their time at home. Large homes and expansive yards with stellar views provide a refuge for residents who want a peaceful and quiet day-to-day living experience away from the stresses of school and work. Those with an active lifestyle will also love Northwest Hills since its long, winding streets full of beautiful trees and scenery are perfect for joggers and those who simply enjoy a casual stroll through the neighborhood. Even though you’re outside of the bustle of the city, you won’t feel too far away, and heading into Downtown for a night out at a great restaurant or to see a concert is never a hassle.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Though Northwest Hills offers a private, suburban living experience, you don’t have to look far to find great restaurants, shopping, and much more. One of Austin’s best barbeque spots, County Line, is located right nearby. Enjoy authentic Texan menu items like ribs, sausages, brisket, and more. You can also try the Tuscan and Italian fare at Siena, which has been a top destination for Austin dining for twenty years, and the unique, Aztec-inspired cuisine at Azul Tequila.

You’ll also find must-have staples like H-E-B and many national retailers nearby, providing everything you need close to home.

Things to Do

One of the best parts of living in Northwest Hills is the connection it provides to the gorgeous landscape of Texas Hill Country. From the lush streets of many neighborhoods to the idyllic shoreline of Lake Austin, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy nature. Residents can explore the nearby Bright Leaf Preserve via their guided hikes, which give you an inside look at 200 acres of some of the region’s wildlife and best untarnished vistas.

When you want to experience some more of what the city has to offer, head to Downtown Austin and check out top destinations like the Museum of the Weird, its many great concert venues, and trendy new restaurants.
