East Austin Real Estate

A lively, eclectic mix of housing and culture make Austin's East Side real estate a distinctive choice. Modern architecture, bungalows, and lofts coexist with barbeque joints, experimental theaters, and foodie hotspots. The last decade has brought rapid development to East Austin real estate, primarily because these were the only centrally located neighborhoods that weren’t already fully developed. The resulting construction and refurbishment boom in the area can be seen on nearly every block and in every community.

In East Austin, you'll see lovingly restored small homes, larger new construction ventures, condo communities, and lofts with ground-floor retail. This makes for an exciting collage of options for new homeowners, as they have their choice between modern living or a funky East Side lifestyle.

Some refer to the East Side as any part of Central Austin east of Interstate 35, but we'll define it as the area bordered by Interstate 35 to the west, Springdale Rd to the east, Lady Bird Lake to the south, and Manor Rd to the north. This encompasses the primary residential, retail, and service areas without being too vague. Located near Downtown and the University of Texas campus, East Austin offers everything in the way of social and cultural amenities including great restaurants, nightlife spots, and charming, up-and-coming neighborhoods.
