West Lake Hills

Low Tax Rates, Highly Ranked School District, & Austin's Most Luxurious Homes

Welcome to West Lake Hills

Distinct and exclusive communities with breathtaking homes.

West Lake Hills is one of the most desirable communities located just west of Downtown Austin between Highway 360 and Interstate 1, a.k.a. "MoPac." West Lake Hill’s exquisite estates boast beautifully landscaped lots and a varied mix of breathtaking architecture. Unique features include backyard waterfalls and guest suites, with interiors showcasing exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Incorporated as an independent suburb in 1953, Westlake Hills, with its hilly terrain and tranquil residential streets, only feels far-flung from Austin’s bustling core. A mere six miles west of downtown, this family-friendly pocket is a highly sought-after community sprinkled with some of Austin's finest luxury real estate.  Nestled in Westlake Hills you'll find an array of restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and community parks.  Additionally, families are drawn to the highly rated, exemplary public school system, Eanes Independent School District

What to Love

People & Lifestyle

Once considered the outskirts of town, West Lake Hills feels like an escape from the city, albeit one with the conveniences of a bustling suburb. And while you may not find any late-night spots, there are plenty of cherished eateries, like Texas Honey Ham and Blue Dahlia, and an array of independent boutiques dotted amid national chains.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Davenport Village has a great selection of retail and dining options within a five-minute drive from West Lake Hills along Highway 360. There is refined farm-to-table Southwestern cuisine at Jack Allen’s Kitchen 360 and delectable Tex-Mex at Maudie’s Milagro. In addition to restaurants, there are coffee shops, fashion boutiques, and businesses offering a wide range of services. West Lake Hills is just a 6-minute drive from The Village at Westlake, 10 minutes from Barton Creek Mall, and 15 minutes from Hill Country Galleria.

Things to Do

Barton Creek Country Club features four exceptional championship golf courses: an Arnold Palmer-designed course overlooking Lake Austin, two beautifully landscaped Tom Fazio courses, and a links-style course designed by Austin native Ben Crenshaw. Barton Creek’s other members-only facilities include lighted tennis courts, a state-of-the-art fitness center, children’s programs, and a dining room. Austin Country Club, established in 1899, is Texas’ most historic country club. Among its many amenities are an 18-hole Pete Dye golf course, lighted tennis courts, a boat club with 57 private slips, and a clubhouse with a ballroom and several dining spaces. Covering 227 acres with 2.5 miles of trails, Wild Basin Preserve is the perfect place to explore the majestic Texas Hill Country at its most unspoiled.


West Lake Hills is zoned to the Eanes Independent School District and is consistently ranked one of Texas' top school districts.
