Rosedale is right in the middle of a large area packed with great shopping and dining options, and it’s also just a short drive from Downtown, East Austin, and Hyde Park, so you'll find tons of choices nearby. Many Rosedale residents enjoy Fonda San Miguel for Mexican food, Maru on Burnet for sushi, and one of several options for Indian cuisine nearby. The Night Hawk Frisco Shop offers great comfort food, and Rosedale residents head to breakfast at Austin’s Diner or The Omelettry, both on Burnet Rd. There are also a lot of family-friendly options along Burnet Rd, including Amy’s Ice Cream (an Austin institution), Phil’s Ice House, and Hangtown Grill.
Rosedale is an old neighborhood about ten minutes north of downtown. It was settled in the mid-1800s originally, and in fact, the oldest house in the neighborhood, the Moore Hancock farmstead, was begun in 1849. Around 1900 and the next few years, the Ramsey family purchased several large tracks in the area. They grew fruit and nut trees as well as ornamental plants that they sold to residents throughout central Texas. Lucky Rosedales, as that means we still benefit these days from the many fine, mature trees that shade our neighborhood and keep it nice and green and leafy and cooler in the summer as well.
So Rosedale is bounded on the south by 38th, and on the west by Shoal Creek Boulevard, and the northern boundary is Hancock and North Loop. On the east, we have Burnet Road and Lamar Boulevard. And the nice thing for Rosedale residents is the Shoal Creek green belt runs on the west side of the neighborhood, and it will take you all the way down to the hike and bike trail on Ladybird Lake. There are about 1,200 homes in Rosedale. Prices vary from low 300s for a very small fixer upper to well into the 700s for new construction, or for a beautifully renovated older home. The neighborhood is home to young families, single professionals, and many longtime residents.
Most of the homes in Rosedale were built in the 1920s to 1940s. There are many quaint cottages and many craftsman type bungalows. Many folks have renovated their homes beautifully, and so you have older homes that still retain their charm but have floor plans and a size that meets the needs of today’s families. The southern half of Rosedale is served by the exemplary elementary school, Bryker Woods, a middle school, the O. Henry, and Austin High School.
The northern part of the neighborhood is served by the exemplary elementary school Highland Park, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School. Lamar and McCallum both have fine arts academies. Rosedale is also home to the Rosedale School, which is AISD’s school for children with special needs. We also have the Texas State School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Though quiet and tranquil, no home is really more than four or five blocks from a great breakfast taco at Taco Deli, a nice glass of wine at the Apothecary Wine Bar, a great social experience at the 40-year-old Drafthouse Pub, a great cup of coffee at Epoch or Houndstooth. You’re also likely to run into neighbors at Central Market almost anytime, but especially on Friday and Saturday nights when they have live music out on the deck.
Ramsey Park is in the heart of the neighborhood where we are now. It includes tennis courts, a baseball field, and two of the favorite destinations of our youngest residents, Ramsey Pool and the Park Place Gates. Yarborough Library is located on Hancock Drive and is housed in a cool old movie theater that used to be called the Americana. For the gardeners out there, we also have Sunshine Community Gardens. Rosedale also is adjacent to a couple of hospitals. A quiet neighborhood oasis mixed with an awesome urban experience is what makes Rosedale a special place.
Rosedale is bordered by 38th St to the south, North Loop/Hancock Dr to the north, Shoal Creek Blvd to the west, and Lamar Blvd to the east. The neighborhood is easily accessible via Mopac Loop 1 and Interstate 35 by way of 38th St or 45th St. Some of Central Austin’s biggest roads run right through the neighborhood, like Lamar Blvd and Burnet Rd, both lined with many dining and shopping options. Rosedale’s fantastic central location also makes it an easy walk, bike ride, or bus trip to Downtown, UT, or the State Capitol. The neighborhood is also surrounded by many of Central Austin’s classic parks, with lovely Shoal Creek bubbling on the neighborhood’s west side.
