West Lake Hills TX Real Estate Overview

About West Lake Hills

West Lake Hills (also referred to simply as “West Lake” or “Westlake”) is a beautiful town just 10-15 minutes from downtown Austin. With a population of about 5,000 residents, it’s one of the smaller suburbs of Austin but growing at a steady pace thanks to its location and highly desirable luxury properties.

You’ll love the thoughtful layout and upscale feel of this quiet suburb, and you can’t beat the proximity to downtown Austin! At any given moment you’re just a quick drive from all kinds of fabulous entertainment, shopping, and dining experiences yet you’re far enough away to leave behind the hurried pace of the big city. And because of the closeness to Austin, there are thousands of job opportunities nearby, and any commute you have will likely be very short.

Homes For Sale In West Lake Hills

Many of the homes in West Lake are older. Some have been updated over the years, and some are ripe for a remodel, but almost all of them are on generously-sized lots and feature luscious old growth landscaping. The housing styles vary and include contemporary, ranch-style, villas, modern, and some very unique custom homes. West Lake is one of the most sought-after suburbs of Austin for wealthy singles and families alike, and the value of properties reflect that. Prices for single family homes start around $700,000 and go well beyond $6 million for the most exquisite estates.


West Lake is known for its exceptional schools and top-rated ISD. Because it’s so close to the city, residents can send their children to some of the best schools in Texas both within West Lake proper and in neighboring Austin.

  • Eanes Elementary

  • Barton Creek Elementary

  • Valley View Elementary

  • Cedar Creek Elementary

  • Hill Country Middle School

  • West Ridge Middle School

  • Westlake High School


Not only is West Lake Hills near all the activities that downtown Austin has to offer, but it’s also close to some of the best regional attractions as well.  There’s the West Lake Beach on Lake Austin (formerly Lake McDonald), which is a local favorite for recreation and family time. Those looking to relax and unwind can head over to the Lake Austin Spa Resort, and families will enjoy being so close to many kid-friendly hotspots such as the Austin Nature & Science Center. When you live in West Lake, everything is at your fingertips. Virtually any place in Austin is only 30 minutes or less away, so you can take your pick of fantastic attractions!

Nearby Shopping

As a West Lake resident, you can shop until you drop. There’s local shopping centers like The Village at WestLake and the WestBank Market in town. And if those options don’t have what you need, you can drive to downtown Austin at a moment’s notice and all the city’s quirky shops and national brand stores are at your disposal.
