Search for Barton Hills Homes

The neighbor to the west of the Zilker neighborhood is Barton Hills and is bordered on the west side by Mopac down to Loop 360. Many of the homes were built in the 1970s and 1980s, and quite a few overhang the Barton Greenbelt, which wraps around the western edge. Barton Hills is a close walk to the Barton Springs Pool, which is the fourth largest natural spring in Texas and provides all of Austin a cool place come have a swim. The 358 acre Zilker Park is also a short walk away as is the multitude of restaurants on Barton Springs, including Austin Java, Romeos, Flipnotics, Green Mesquite, and the original Tex-Mex Chuys. Behind Austin Java is slated to be some low-rise condos. It will be an excellent location right on Town Lake, but the down-side is that the RV park there will have to go, along with some of the huge trees.
