Custom Homes in Austin and Lake Austin
Over the years, Austin has shed its reputation as a quiet “hippie” town and is now one of the most talked about, cutting-edge and thriving cities in the world. Not only is Austin the capital of Texas, it is the 11th-most populated cities in the US, a hotbed for technology hubs like Dell, 3M, and AMD, an example of healthy and eco-conscious living, and its the “Live Music Capital of World,” home to internationally known music festivals like South by Southwest (SXSW) and Austin City Limits (ACL).
The gorgeous Colorado River is the resource that initially attracted pioneers to Austin in the 1830s. The beauty, climate and resources intrigued settlers who decided Austin should be the state capital, not Houston. The city of Austin was originally named Waterloo, but around 1839 the name was changed to Austin in honor of Stephen F. Austin, the “Father of Texas” and the republic’s first secretary of state.
At the heart of downtown Austin is the Texas State Capitol that overlooks the hustle and bustle of Congress Avenue. This gorgeous building is one of the tallest state capitols in the United States making it visible in the distance from almost every vantage point in the city. From shopping and dining at 2nd Street District to catching amazing live music and concerts at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, where the TV show Austin City Limits is filmed, to the campus of the University of Texas, something exciting is always happening.
Austin is situated on the Colorado River, with three man-made lakes created by dams along the Colorado River, all located within the city limits: Lady Bird Lake, formerly known as Town Lake, Lake Austin and Lake Travis. All of these beautiful lakes are not only in high demand for water sports and recreation year-round, but also for their gorgeous lakefront properties and exclusive neighborhoods. At Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes we take pride in building distinctive custom homes in Austin and the surrounding Lake Austin area neighborhoods for our clients.
Ladybird Lake is located downtown and offers recreation from walking, running and bike trails to rowing and boating. One of the largest outdoor concert venues in Austin is located on the shores of Ladybird Lake, Auditorium Shores. Situated a few miles away is Zilker Park, known as the crown jewel of the Austin parks system. The park is home to sprawling fields, playgrounds and picnic areas, botanical gardens, nature and science centers, a hillside theatre, Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum and Barton Springs Pool, a natural spring-fed pool. Zilker Park is home to two of the largest music festivals in the world, SXSW and ACL Music Festival. The area neighborhoods surrounding this area are brimming with possibilities for individuals looking to live close to the hustle, bustle and action of downtown Austin.
Heading west from downtown Austin into the surrounding neighborhoods, the hilly terrain and spectacular views of the city attract many residents. Neighborhoods like Barton Hills, Rollingwood, Tarrytown, Westlake Hills and Northwest Hills can have stunning views of the downtown skyline as well as the hills and surrounding lakes.
