Welcome to Independence Park. It’s a little bit of Americana in the heart of funky South Austin, located just south of Stassney with the main entrance off of Manchaca.
Everything you need is just a short trip away from Independence Park. Downtown is just six miles and it’s only 11 miles to the Austin airport. There is a quaint and charming feel to Independence Park and here you’ll get to know your neighbors. The neighbors are always out, visiting with each other, having block parties, walking the dogs, or simply gardening. This community is small and less than 250 homes, built between 2007 and 2012 by two area builders.
All of the homes were built in the contemporary craftsman style. This means they have inviting front porches where you can sit and read the newspaper, beautiful columns and enchanting curb appeal. These homes range in size from 1,200 to 2,500 square feet, the largest having tons of space, storage, four bedrooms and plenty of office space. There is plenty of room for your friends and family.
Independence Park is an easy living community where the HUA takes care of the common areas and landscaping. The amenities also include a wildlife refuge and duck pond as you drive into the neighborhood. What a treat it is to see migrating birds stopping to visit your neighborhood lake as they travel south for the winter. This community also has tons of walking trails tucked in behind the homes for everyone who loves to run.
If you’re looking for schools, Independence Park is part of the Austin Independent School District. Your kiddos have access to Cunningham Elementary, Covington Middle School and Crocket High School. Like being outdoors? Well, one of my favorite things about this community is that Garrison Park is located directly across the street. If you’re in the mood to shop, West Gate and Brody Oak Shopping Centers are a five minute drive away. Here you can find Central Market, Toys-R-Us if you have kids, Neiman Marcus Last Call for that little bit of bling, as well as Cavender’s Boots if you want a little more Texas in your life.
Looking for something sweet? We even have an Amy’s Ice Cream close by. If food is your thing, Hide Park Bar and Grill, known for its famous French fries, and if you love coffee, try Radio where you can grab a cup of Joe and Amigo’s Taco from Veracruz Food Trailer. After work, looking for a great happy hour, try our local Pint House Pizza.
Whether you’re an urban professional, young family, or empty nester, you will absolutely love Independence Park.
