Neighborhoods > Central Austin > Balcones Park

Balcones Park is situated alongside scenic Lake Austin, just ten minutes northwest of downtown. The elegant trees that shade both the houses and the roads help create an established and historic feel. Bordering the west side of the neighborhood, sits the untouched and pristine Bright Leaf Preserve. One of Austin’s best-kept secrets, the preserve offers free, monthly tours to anyone interested in learning more about the area. Balcones Park homes are also near Camp Mabry, one of Texas’ oldest active military installments, which is home to a museum and re-enactments of Texas’ military history, as well as a mile long track where both soldiers and civilians can enjoy a walk or run.  A short drive from the neighborhood, Balcones Park homeowners can hike up the Mount Bonnell overlook, which rests on a cliff that displays both beautiful homes and breathtaking views of Lake Austin. Afterwards, residents can stop by Austin favorites like Russell's Bistro and Chez Zee - an American bistro known for its quirky/romantic atmosphere and delicious food.  With such a great location, rich history, and beautiful scenery, it's no wonder that homes for sale in Balcones Park are often priced close to $1M, with special properties fetching far more.
