When the Davenport Ranch neighborhood began to develop in the early 1980s, residents enjoyed a serene feel along with hilltop views of the Austin skyline.
The vistas and tranquility still remain, but the amenities of the city have moved west. Davenport Ranch, an exclusive neighborhood of hillside houses and lakefront patio homes, boasts an impressive mixture of urban amenities and Hill Country appeal. It's located on the scenic Westlake peninsula, which is west and south of Lake Austin and just east of Capital of Texas Highway, also known as Loop 360.
Most Davenport Ranch residents live in spacious single-family homes that dot the hillsides. The area has grown annually since the construction of Capital of Texas Highway and scenic Pennybacker Bridge in 1983, and the neighborhood includes a well-maintained patio-home community of 50 units on the shores of Lake Austin . A new development on the west side of Capital of Texas Highway, Davenport West, features new single-family homes and an upscale apartment complex, along with more shopping and dining choices.
Along with access to one of the best public school districts in the state, Davenport Ranch families enjoy ample amenities. The neighborhood is within 15 minutes of downtown Austin and just two miles north of the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, a wildlife refuge crisscrossed with hiking trails. The Austin Country Club offers a plethora of recreational possibilities, including its acclaimed golf course. Several nearby boat ramps provide easy access to scenic Lake Austin .
In addition, the Davenport Village shopping center on Capital of Texas Highway offers some of the best high-end shopping in Austin .
Davenport Ranch is in the city of Austin but falls within the boundaries of the Eanes school district, an independent school district west of Austin . Consistently ranked as one of the best school districts in Texas , Eanes offers a top-rate education and a wide variety 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.
