Lake Austin is a constant level lake that winds its way down from Lake Travis at Mansfield Dam to Lady Bird Lake at the Tom Miller Dam. Its appearance more vividly recalls a river than a lake as it is actually part of the Colorado River’s Highland Lakes system, formed in the 1930s and 1940s for electrical power generation, flood control and recreation. Fishermen enjoy catching largemouth bass in Lake Austin’s waters (which is usually after dark in the summer since daytime boating activity on Lake Austin is significant in the warmer months). Canoeing, kayaking and rowing are also popular on the lake, but thanks to its water source from the bottom of Lake Travis, Lake Austin is so cold that if you are in the water, a wetsuit is likely in order. Lake Austin waterfront homes range from modest three bedroom homes to impressive nine bedroom estates. With its long, wandering path from Hwy 620 through Westlake Hills to Redbud Trail, there is sure to be a Lake Austin home with a quick commute to downtown, but the price of Lake Austin waterfront is certain to give pause. Lake Austin homes for sale range in price from $250K to over $1M. Proximity and access to Lake Austin makes the demand high for these homes. As of September 2013, the last tract of undeveloped land was put on the market, which means buyers can expect to see new Lake Austin lots and homes just to the west of the Pennybacker Bridge.
