Located just west of Lamar Boulevard and between Enfield Road and 24th Street, Old Enfield has long been a haven for Austin residents seeking a tranquil spot in the heart of the city. The neighborhood offers a diverse mix of urban bungalows and exquisite mansions, but all the houses fit into the well-maintained feel of the community. Many of the neighborhood's most majestic houses date back almost a century, and the newer homes were built in the 1950s. In addition, several tidy apartment complexes and condos are along Enfield Road.
Old Enfield has long been home to some of Austin's most prominent and successful citizens, and any evening walk through the quiet streets might lead to a surprising meeting or two.
Residents of Old Enfield rarely have to leave their neighborhood to enjoy the mild Austin weather. Sprawling Pease Park forms the eastern border of the neighborhood and provides locals with a variety of outdoor activities. Joggers and cyclists can follow a trail that borders Shoal Creek while enjoying views of the State Capitol. Disc golfers traverse one of the oldest courses in Texas. Pet-lovers cite the open-leash area, and sunbathers and kite flyers find plenty of room in the park's open fields. The nearby Caswell Tennis Center and West Austin Park also have plenty of recreational opportunities for locals.
Old Enfield residents can also stroll to plenty of shops and restaurants. Bustling Lamar Boulevard boasts a diverse mix of eateries and stores, and the diverse neighborhoods surrounding the University of Texas are just blocks away.

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.
