Hi, my name is Mary Jane and I'm with Realty Austin. Today I would like to give you a tour of my personal neighborhood, my home in Central Austin called Westfield. This is an area that is often lumped together with Tarrytown and the Deep Eddy neighborhood. But basically the boundaries are if you are at Mopac you would go west on Enfield to Lake Austin. You would turn and follow Lake Austin to where it turns into Ladybird Lake at the Tom Miller Dam. And on the rest of the way till you came back to MoPac.
We're going to start our tour today at the West Enfield Park. It's a great small neighborhood park with a playground, a swimming pool that's had a major renovation and for the adults there is also a pickup game of basketball most evenings or a fitness class going on. Across the street is the end of the Johnson Trail and I challenge you to take about an eighth of a mile walk down that and come across a restored windmill.
The next stop is going to be at the Lion's Municipal Golf Course. This really is a jewel for our neighborhood. It is an 18-hole public course and it's affectionately called Muni.
As we continue our drive down Enfield to the Colorado River we come to Oyster Landing. Inside of Oyster Landing is the best cup of coffee at Mozart's Coffee Grinders and Roasters. Next door for a casual meal is Abel's on the Lake and the Hula Hut, which is Mexican food with a little bit of a Polynesian twist.
For those of you that like a little fun in the sun the next stop is definitely for you at Deep Eddy Pool and Eilers Park. It's located right on the banks of the Colorado River and has been a swimming hole since 1926 for the neighborhood. In close proximity you have the fabulous running trails all along Ladybird Lake.
For those with little ones there are three great neighborhood schools, Casis Elementary, O'Henry Middle School and Austin High School.
This neighborhood offers a fabulous assortment of homes. There are grand, gorgeous estates, some of which are gated, some of which have sweeping front yards with towering trees on them. There are cute cottages, and multifamily units of condominiums. Because the location is so excellent there is something for everyone's taste.
The attraction to my neighborhood is location, location, location. You're basically five minutes to downtown, five minutes to the lake and just a few minutes to many attractions such as the running trails and various restaurants.
Once again, I'm Mary Jane with Realty Austin, thank you for joining me on the tour of my neighborhood, Westfield.
