About Westlake, TX
Westlake is the perfect place for a family in the Austin area to buy a home. Due to stringent bylaws limiting advertising signage, business districts have maintained an understated appearance. Homes here have been built over the last 50 years, and range considerably in style and size, giving this community a lot of personality. Newer, custom-built homes here are large and very luxurious. Many homes boast beautiful city, lake, and hill country views.
Due to the indirect access to major arteries, through traffic is limited to either end of the primary north/south route. While this may be inconvenient at times, it vastly reduces traffic flow through the community. Nestled along the West Lake Hills corridor, pockets of smaller gated communities of custom, luxury homes have sprung up. Predominantly private residences line the shore of Lake Austin.
