Lakeway, TX Real Estate News

Lake Travis Custom homebuilder offers a $42,000 free golf club membership at the exclusive “The Hills” Golf Club & Resort in Lakeway with the purchase of a luxury Lake Travis home. Lakeway, TX – Even though the Central Texas region has weathered the economic storm better than most parts of the nation, the city and its affluent suburbs still have felt the effects of the economy and tightened lending standards. In certain areas and price points, inventory of homes available exceed one year and longer. Home sellers and builders have had to get creative to entice finicky homebuyers to buy. Owner financing and leasing have become an alternative to “just lowering the price.” Although aggressive pricing is still key to getting a home sold, some home sellers and builders prefer to offer “life s...

Lake Travis Community Library BUILDING.  I love those words and the warm memories it conjures up of time spent as a child, youth and young struggling mother, reading and researching at my community library.  Thursday's edition of the Lake Travis View, front page, delivered the grand news!  The Lake Travis Community Library BUILDING was actually, really, more than maybe - going to happen! I "woo-hoo'd" out loud! Here's the opening paragraph: "The dream that has filled the hearts of Lake Travis readers for more than a quarter century is closer to becoming a reality".   (Click here to read the full article)      My heartfelt appreciation to all involved in making this dream a probable reality; and my deepest continued gratitude to those who have worked so hard to maintain and grow the Lake...

Lakeway TX Private Marina? As long as I have lived in Lakeway (20+ years) I have heard rumors of a Lakeway TX Marina at the end of Hurst Creek Road. Since I live just off of Hurst Creek road, I have been always been interested in the subject.  I remember years ago, when plans for a Lakeway City Park were being developed, there was talk of a boat launch being part of the park.  All I could visualize was streams of public cars (non-Lakeway residents) driving along Hurst Creek Road to pay a daily fee and launch their boats in lake.  Yikes!  Not a pretty picture. Obviously that did not happen and the Lakeway City Park - which is located on Hurst Creek Road, has been a wonderful addition for the Lakeway residents - without a boat launch. The January issue of Impact News, has confirmed the La...

Lake Travis High School Lakeway TX football team claimed their fourth 4A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP in a row! HOW ABOUT THEM CAVS?!  Way to go Lake Traivs High School Lakeway TX! The Austin American Statesman wrote a fabulous article about the team, the game and LTISD. We have come a long way since my children attended Lake Travis High School Lakeway TX in the late 90's.  The team spirit was there, but the athleticism and size were not.  The school district was still quite small. We are very proud of those kids, the coaches, the fans and most importantly, the parents. AWESOME!

The Lake Travis High School Football team is headed to the Texas State District 25-4A State Championship game in Dallas Texas to claim their FOURTH STRAIGHT VICTORY AS TEXAS STATE DISTRICT 25-4A CHAMPIONS.  This morning I was in my office at Moreland Properties and heard sirens and hollering.  We ran out the front door just in time to see the a caravan of large buses, police cars (lights going), SUVs, trucks, cars decorated to the hilt, honking their horns, and waiving their arms as they headed north to Dallas for the Lake Travis High School State Championship Football Game.  It was exciting to watch and made me proud to see the parade of players, students, parents and community, hooping-it-up to attend the game and cheer the Lake Travis High School Football Team to another victory.   L...

Each year the City of Lakeway TX builds a Trail of Lights in the center of Lakeway. It is a spectacular display of holdiay lights with walking trails that weave through the magical show. A small scale version of the Zilker Park Trail of Lights (which was disconitued a few years ago), Lakeway has done a fabulous job of bringing the magic of the holdiay to the Lakeway residents. My favorite part of the Lakeway TX Trail of Lights is the tunnel of lights.  It is a light-show of blinking colors flashing over and around you as you wander through.  (Great photo spot - be sure and turn off your flash)  From there you weave through the toy story of displays discovering new details as you move along. It is worth the drive to Lakway TX to spend 30-minutes enjoying the Lakeway TX Trail of Lights di...

Rought Hollow Lakeway has just announced that it will begin consturction on Highland Village, Phase 1 - to the tune of $3.8 million, in Spring 2011. Conceptually, Highland Village Lakeway TX will have the atmosphere of a small town with a town square feel.  It will highlight the history of Lakeway TX including a stagecoach trail that ran through the rugged topography of the western part of what is now known as Lakeway TX. (Which sounds very cool) According to the article, Highland Village Rough Hollow will include: Child-friendly zero depth entry poolsToddler splash pads and water spraysA junior olympic pool and swim clubsWater fallsGrotto poolsFishing pondSpa/Beach ClubSand Volley BallMarke...
