Highland Park West

Highland Park West, part of the larger Highland Park West Balcones area, is an established neighborhood of charming homes located just west of Mopac Loop 1 and RM 2222. Started in the 1940s and largely built out in the 1950s, Highland Park West features a variety of home styles, from original traditional and mid-century-modern, to updated homes and contemporary construction. Conveniently located a short distance from Downtown Austin and the University of Texas, this neighborhood is perfect for those looking to live in a traditional setting while still being able to enjoy all the perks of city life. With verdant landscaping on large home plots beside wide meandering streets, all backing up to the beautiful Bright Leaf Preserve, the natural setting at Highland Park West can easily make you forget you’re just minutes from just about any destination in Central, North, and West Austin.

Austin ISD schools focus on innovative curriculum, effective instruction, and community collaboration to prepare students for the social, academic, and workplace environments they will become a part of later in life. Strong Parent and Teacher Associations help keep students motivated at home and at school, and great teachers make it a goal to meet the needs of every child. While there are many excellent extracurricular programs that seek to keep students involved outside of the classroom, Austin ISD also features magnet programs for gifted students, such as the Liberal Arts and Science Academy and the Kealing Magnet Program.
Perry Park anchors the community at Highland Park West, with six acres of parkland, basketball courts, soccer fields, and running trails right in the middle of the neighborhood. Add in the Bright Leaf Preserve and its 200+ acres of pristine wilderness, and you’ll see why residents forget just how close they are to the city. Residents enjoy a wide variety of home styles and amenities, from the traditional and preserved to the contemporary and updated.

Today I’d like to introduce you to Highland Park West, a wonderful little neighborhood in Central Austin, Texas. The neighborhood is bordered to the west of Mopac, south of 22-22, north of Perry Lane, and east of the Bright Leaf Nature Preserve Green Belt. The location of this neighborhood offers quick and easy access to Mopac, 183, 360. It’s just minutes from downtown, and it’s about a 20-minute drive to the airport. Construction in the neighborhood began in the ‘40s, but most of the homes were built in the 1950s and ’60s.

You can find one and two story homes with styles including traditional, mid-century modern, craftsman, and contemporary. You’ll find everything from small bungalows to stately homes with views of the city and river. Many of the homes have been remodeled or added onto. There’s been new construction, and you can still find a few homes that are in their original state. Home prices begin the high $300,000.00 price range and extend up to a million plus, with the average homes around 650.

What you’ll always find in Highland Park West are beautiful, mature trees on large lots. The homes in Highland Park West feed into some really good schools. Highland Park Elementary is within walking distance of almost every home in the neighborhood, has an exemplary rating, and earned the National Blue Ribbon award for high academic achievement. The middle school is Lamar, which just became the Fine Arts Academy, and McCallum High School has long been the district’s fine arts magnet program.

In September of 2011, a new state of the art performing arts center was opened on McCallum Campus. Highland Park West is a small, close knit community. At its heart are Russell’s Bakery, Chez Zee, and Crenshaw’s Athletic. Russell’s is an easy stop in for your morning coffee, lunch, or a yummy afternoon pick me up, and Chez Zee offers lunch and dinner inside our out on their beautiful covered patio. Also in the neighborhood are Berry Austin Frozen Yogurt, Crado’s Pizza, P&E Asian Cuisine, and Tino’s Greek Restaurant.

At any of these places, the odds are you’ll run into a friend or a neighbor. Crenshaw’s has been a staple in the neighborhood for years. It has gymnastics, an afternoon school program, and summer camps. Highland Park West is part of the larger Highland Park West Balconies Area Neighborhood Association. The association also organizes events throughout the year, such as movie night at Perry Park, an Easter egg hunt, and a fourth of July parade and picnic. Perry Park is located between Balconies Drive and Highland Park Elementary. It has lighted tennis courts, playgrounds, soccer fields, picnic tables, a running track, and walking trails.

Highland Park West is a very walkable neighborhood, and a destination spot for many is up at the reservoir at the end of Ridge Oak Drive where you can stop and take in the panoramic view of the river and the bright leaf preserve. With the beautiful homes and lots, the great schools and neighborhood amenities, and the central location, Highland Park West is a great place to call home.

Located just off Mopac Loop 1, Highland Park West enjoys a choice setting amidst the rolling hills of Northwest Austin, with incredible accessibility to Central Austin and the Downtown area. RM 2222 runs along the north edge of the community, quickly bringing you into Central Austin or to Lake Austin and out to the Hill Country. On the south edge of the neighborhood is 35th St, a straight shot into the UT area, and Exposition Blvd takes you down to Lady Bird Lake as it winds through Downtown and beautiful Zilker Park.
