Davenport Ranch Real Estate
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.
