Perched on the water's edge just west of Austin, Austin Lake Estates provides an appealing contrast in styles.
The venerable neighborhood has plenty of cozy homes nestled next to modern, spacious houses. Lake Austin laps softly at the rocky shores, yet Austin 's vibrant and energetic downtown is just a 20-minute drive away. That type of eclectic mix - and access to one of the best school districts in the state - makes Austin Lake Estates one of the most alluring neighborhoods west of Austin.
Located off Cuernavaca Drive in western Travis County , Austin Lake Estates has changed with the times. Once a community of lake homes and rural lots, the neighborhood has embraced its new identity as an appealing retreat for city workers.
Easy access to Austin and the Village of Bee Cave has eliminated the isolated feel of Austin Lake Estates. Bee Cave Road , a large and easy-to-navigate thoroughfare, links Austin Lake Estates to Austin and the Hill Country. Residents can quickly reach the area's wealth of golf courses, shopping and restaurants.
Of course, residents can also pass the time at home, enjoying strolls through the neighborhood and a beautiful lakefront park that includes a beach available to members of the homeowners association.
Families have flocked to Austin Lake Estates, partially because of its excellent educational opportunities. The Eanes school district provides the neighborhood with one of the best public educations in the state. Consistently ranked at the top of public school districts in Texas , Eanes provides a wealth of academic options and plenty of extracurricular activities.

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.
