The delightful neighborhood of Highland Hills has something to offer almost everyone. Highland Hills is an older, established neighborhood in Northwest Austin, located just north and west of the intersection of MoPac and 2222. Homeowners here enjoy picturesque scenery with large home-sites set in hilled, heavily treed surroundings.
Highland Hills offers its residents convenient access to downtown Austin, the University of Texas, the tech corridor, and the lakes. Residents get all the benefits of living downtown without the negatives. The stunning views, the rolling hills, the wide tree lined streets, and large lots are just some of the amenities Highland Hills homeowners come to love. Professionals and academics enjoy a quick commute (ten minutes or less) to downtown, Seton Hospital and UT.
Most of Highland Hills’ charming homes were built in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and vary from established family homes (some completely renovated; others ready for remodel) to newer houses with all the amenities. The average sized home in the neighborhood is around 3,200 square feet, featuring 4 bedrooms and 2 baths.
