Want easy access to scenic Lake Austin? How about a spot in one of the best school districts in Texas? If so, the burgeoning community of Bella Lago in west Austin offers a prime spot to live.
Located on a wooded peninsula on the southern edge of Lake Austin, Bella Lago boasts plenty of roomy homes built within the last five years. The neighborhood is located in the Cuernavaca Drive area off Bee Cave Road, and it rests in the prestigious Eanes school district just west of Austin.
The spacious houses and large lots (most are at least one acre) provide plenty of room for a growing family. The area retains a Hill Country feel despite its location just a few miles west of Capital of Texas Highway, and deer still outnumber subdivisions.
Although the secluded lots and walks to the lake suggest otherwise, Bella Lago is within minutes of big-city amenities. The burgeoning Village of Bee Cave, a quaint town that features a lively shopping center, is located just a few miles west on Bee Cave Road. Austin 's vibrant downtown is just a 20-minute drive away.
Education remains of the top draws for Bella Lago. The Eanes school district, an independent school district that covers 31.2 square miles west of Austin, provides Bella Lago families with some of the best public education in the state. Consistently ranked as one of the top 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.
