Nestled between some of Austin's most manicured streets and the hustle of downtown, Clarksville offers an energetic urban feel with a mellow style distinctive to Austin.
One of Austin's most historical neighborhoods, Clarksville is bordered by Lamar Boulevard on the east, MoPac Boulevard on the west, Enfield Road on the north and West Sixth Street on the south. The cozy, tree-lined streets host a diverse neighborhood that helps create Austin's unique atmosphere. Tidy homes that date back a century share fences with modern houses built within the past decade. Small, funky apartment complexes filled with students are on the same street as spacious condos home to young professionals. Children play in the neighborhood park, while longtime residents that have lived in Clarksville for 50 years sit in the shade and trade stories.
Clarksville's close proximity to downtown gives residents ample opportunities to sample Austin. Dozens of restaurants and shops are within walking distance, and several grocery stores and coffee shops are in the neighborhood. The flagship Whole Foods Market, Waterloo Records and Book People are among the thriving local businesses next to the neighborhood, and residents can walk to Austin's famed downtown entertainment district.
Town Lake, the stretch of the Colorado River that cuts through the heart of Austin, is less than a mile away from Clarksville. Residents can access the Town Lake trails by a trail that runs alongside Lamar Boulevard, and several boat ramps and canoe docks offer quick access to the cool waters of the river.
The neighborhood is served by some of the best schools in Austin, including Matthews Elementary, O. Henry Middle and Austin High.

I have to admit that when I first reached out through Yelp to set up a meeting with Eric I was a little skeptical. I was reading reviews of his service like you are right now, and as Eric knows well from our time working together, I'm a person who likes to research and organize just about everything. The fact that I couldn't find even a couple of negative reviews among the hundreds of reviews Eric has across Zillow and Yelp seemed to me to be too good to be true. Fast forward six weeks and one successful closing later, I'm very pleased to report that the service I got was exactly the service I read about if not better. Eric and Bailey Bowden who's Eric's right hand couldn't have been better to work with. This was my first time buying a home, so I had a lot of probably very stupid questions. Despite this, they cheerfully and promptly answered them...
Meredith Alderson is AMAZING! We have worked with many realtors, and Meredith is one of the best. She was very respectful of our budget and what we were looking for in a house. She quickly figured out the key items we wanted and helped us narrow down our search. We were relocating from Arizona and had our two young children with us - she was great at being attentive to their needs and also letting them join in with their opinion. She made house hunting (and buying) a fun experience - with minimal stress! You cannot go wrong with Meredith as your realtor!
Eric Bramlett is an incredible realtor. When my wife and I were looking for a realtor to help us relocate from California to Austin, Texas, we were impressed by the quantity and quality of the online reviews for Eric... and let me tell you, they were not incorrect. Eric is very knowledgeable of the entire Austin area, but he was also very accommodating of our timeline and our need to work feverishly to find a home quickly (as it's not easy to go back and forth from CA to Austin multiple homes).
I cannot say enough fantastic things about working with Tara McGuire at Bramlett Residential. When I reached out to Bramlett via the online contact tool, I had already spoken with several realtors in the Austin area. My inquiries were met with lackluster responses, likely because my husband and I didn't plan to purchase for several months. But when I contacted Bramlett Residential at 10pm on a weeknight, Tara called me first thing the next morning. She encouraged us to visit Austin soon, since we are relocating from Dallas, to get an idea of the neighborhoods and market. During this exploratory trip, we felt no pressure to buy ahead of our schedule. She gave us a great overview of central Austin neighborhoods and helped us narrow down the best areas for us.
