Great Hills, located in northwest Austin between Hwy 183 and Loop 360, has become a coveted location characterized by its quiet, family-centric culture, mature trees, hilly terrain, scenic views, and sprawling homes.
Great Hills is an established community, full of families and singles alike. It offers the perfect mix of seclusion away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, views for days, and the convenience of living in a city. It is located near the Arboretum and The Domain, offering residents plenty of dining, entertainment, and shopping options.
FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT
This neighborhood butts up against the Arboretum, which is home to stores including Trader Joe’s, Williams-Sonoma, Sephora, and other big box retailers as well as a handful of local boutiques. Head to the Austin-staple, Chuy’s, to get your fill of Tex-Mex or keep it classy at Juliet Italian Kitchen.
Great Hills is home to many green spaces for its residents to enjoy. The Great Hills Park covers over 80 acres and includes a 1.7-mile hiking trail, playscape, pavilion, picnic tables, exercise equipment, and more. The 48-acre Bull Creek Park is a stone’s throw away and features limestone boulders, natural springs, waterfalls, and a hiking trail. Golf enthusiasts flock to the Great Hills Country Club which is home to an 18-hole course, tennis courts, a junior Olympic-sized pool, fitness center, and a clubhouse.
SCHOOLS AND HOUSING
Great Hills is served by Austin ISD and Round Rock ISD, including the nationally-ranked Westwood High School.
The neighborhood mostly consists of older, two-story homes built in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Since the terrain is hilly, split-level builds are incredibly common and are built on large, sprawling lawns. The median listing price of a home in Great Hills is $850k.
