Lake Pointe Real Estate
With its convenient location a dozen miles west of Austin, Lake Pointe provides an appealing gateway to Lake Austin and the Texas Hill Country.
Lake Pointe developed near Bee Cave Road and Highway 71 a decade ago. With its attractive location and affordable but spacious homes, the neighborhood quickly became a popular choice for families seeking a little more space without drifting too far from urban amenities. Lake Pointe’s location in the stellar Lake Austin school district doesn’t hurt, either; the local Lake Pointe Elementary regularly receives an exemplary rating from the state’s education agency.
The area’s numerous recreational options make Lake Pointe a popular spot with golfers, boaters and others who enjoy the outdoors. The nearby town of Lakeway has earned its reputation as a haven for addicted and weekend golfers alike. Numerous boat launches provide easy access to the rocky coves of Lake Austin, and several beaches make for a quick getaway on the lake. In addition, scenic parks such as Hamilton Pool and Reimers Ranch are just 15 minutes down the road.
The area has grown dramatically in the past few years, but the influx of shops and restaurants hasn’t diminished Lake Pointe’s rural charm. The new shopping centers in the neighboring Village of Bee Cave have given residents plenty of options when it comes to entertainment. Food choices range from barbeque to Vietnamese, and the nearby music venue The Backyard regularly hosts some of the most acclaimed musicians in the country.
Residents also have plenty of reasons to spend free time in their neighborhood. The community features a private pool for residents as well as plenty of hiking and biking opportunities.
