Why We Build in Crestview
There’s an undeniable charm in Austin’s Crestview neighborhood. From the original architecture of its mid-century cottage homes and iconic hotspots like Top Notch Hamburgers, to the big backyards and family-friendly streets, this area is bursting with small-town ambiance.
In such a cozy corner of the city, it may be easy to forget you’re so close to downtown. But because Crestview is centrally located, you’re surrounded by the best of all the city has to offer. Nestled between North Lamar Blvd. and Burnet Road, Crestview is bordered on the north by West Anderson Lane and on the south by Justin Lane. This places it alongside the entertainment hub that sits at Burnet Road and Anderson Lane, as well as the city’s most beloved restaurants, dining, and shopping on North Lamar. With an ideal location that makes it the best of both worlds, Crestview is the perfect place to lay your Austin roots.
Life in Crestview
With its friendly neighbors, abundance of green space, and convenient location, the highly coveted Crestview neighborhood offers the perks of small-town life with all the amenities Austin has to offer. Whether you’re buying your first home, looking for a place to raise a family, or getting ready to retire, Crestview is calling your name.
If you’ve got a growing family, Crestview is a great place to raise your brood. The school system is nationally recognized, with McCallum High School bearing the distinction of being one of the city’s best schools for fine arts. The neighborhood is also home to Brentwood Elementary School, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School — all part of the Austin Independent School District. And with the playgrounds at Sheffield Park and the hiking and biking trails around Shoal Creek, the opportunities for outdoor fun and exercise are endless here.
If you’re a young professional, life in Crestview has everything you need. Located just north of the city center, you’ve got convenient access to the downtown start-ups and Austin’s technology employers up north. Crestview also boasts convenient access to Capital Metro’s MetroRail, which makes traveling to the northern or southern outskirts for work a cinch. And since the central location cuts down on your daily commute, you’ve got more time to enjoy what you love doing most. You can namaste at Black Swan Yoga, catch a flick and a brew at Alamo Drafthouse Village, or take your pup for a stroll at Great Northern Dog Park, all within minutes of your Crestview home.
Crestivew is also an ideal spot for retirees to make their nests. The serenity you’ll find here — from the majestic oak trees and wide and welcoming porches, to sunset views over the city skyline — simply can’t be beat. Bibliophiles will find themselves in literary heaven, being in walking distance of Austin Public Library’s Yarborough Branch as well as various small bookshops. Shoal Creek and Sheffield Park Pond offer plenty of green space for relaxing the mind and keeping fit. Plus, close proximity to major hospitals and health centers gives peace of mind for staying healthy.
