Thirty minutes from the northwest reaches of Austin, this area encompasses the City of Lago Vista as well as outlying rural areas.
A popular lakeside resort destination in the 1950’s and 1960’s, Lago Vista was incorporated in 1984. Situated on 11 miles of Lake Travis shoreline, the 2,200 residents enjoy year round boating, fishing and golfing. A paved, lighted 3,800 foot runway and hangar facilities can be found at the Bar-K Airport.
Acreage tracts are available outside of the city and several very upscale communities are in development. Among those is the 600-acre North Shore on Lake Travis, host to the 2001 Parade of Homes. Working with well-known architects and landscapers, home design standards have been established and restorative landscaping techniques employed.
250 acres are devoted to parks and greenbelts. A 36-acre waterfront park, private boat ramp and a 308-slip marina with full concierge service are some of the features. This area is appealing to those seeking luxury retirement and vacation properties. Convenient standard shopping amenities are limited.
