I am a retired and active woman and live happily on an acre of land just west of Austin, Texas. I've lived on this property for 20 years and I love the community-minded neighborhood and the eclectic mix of neighbors. There are several buildings on my property including a house, a bungalow, and a cottage. My daughter and son-in-law also live on the property.
There is a gated fence that runs around all the property, and the landscape style is "natural." So there are cactus and cedar trees which is what we call "hill country" style. The neighborhood is quiet with mostly blue collar workers for neighbors. There is river front access about 2 miles away, and Lake Travis is about the same distance from us.
The subdivision we live in is called Apache Shores. Its nickname about 15 years ago was Outlaw Shores because of the independent-minded folks who lived out here. However, it is much, much tamer now as more families have moved into the neighborhood.
I would say that nothing is within walking distance, but there are lots of restaurants and shops within a short driving distance (3 miles). See my customized Guidebook on this site for more information.
