Welcome to

Barton Hills


Nestled along the greenbelt of South Austin, Barton Hills offers a lifestyle steeped in natural beauty and all the advantages of city living. It's a neighborhood that effortlessly combines a relaxed environment with an intellectual and culturally rich community.


Why Barton Hills Stands Out

Barton Hills is an oasis for those seeking a quality lifestyle amid natural beauty while still enjoying the vibrancy Austin has to offer. The neighborhood is easily navigable, whether you're heading to Zilker Park or strolling to the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Residents often describe life here as having the best of both worlds—natural serenity and city conveniences, making it one of the most desirable areas to live in Austin.


What to Love

  • Intellectually Stimulating Community: The neighborhood attracts professionals, artists, and academics, leading to an enriching mix of activities and conversations.
  • Nature-Infused Living: With Zilker Park, Lady Bird Lake, and the Barton Creek Greenbelt as your backyard, outdoor activities are endless.
  • Quiet, Friednly Environment: Quiet, leafy streets and top-rated schools like Barton Hills Elementary make it an excellent choice for resident’s with schools as a priority.

Local Lifestyle

Barton Hills has an inclusive community vibe that blends the casual with the cultured. It's not unusual to see a yoga instructor, a tech entrepreneur, and a musician enjoying the same café or outdoor concert. Architectural styles are just as diverse, ranging from mid-century modern homes to new, upscale developments. It's this unique blend that keeps the area energized yet laid-back.


Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

Residents have an array of culinary delights right at their doorstep. Local gems and food trucks are abundant for whatever craving strikes. For those seeking upscale dining, the Uchi offers a modern take on Japanese cuisine.


South Lamar Boulevard, a major artery of the area, is dotted with quirky boutiques and vintage stores. You’ll also find modern establishments offering the latest fashion, making it easy for residents to keep up with trends without leaving the neighborhood.


Things to Do

  • Zilker Park: The "Central Park" of Austin offers botanical gardens, the Austin Nature and Science Center, and the Zilker Hillside Theatre, where annual musicals are a local tradition.
  • Barton Creek Greenbelt: Known as the "soul of the city," this urban oasis offers hiking, rock climbing, and some of Austin's best swimming holes.
  • Live Music: Being in Austin, live music is never far away. The Saxon Pub is a beloved locale for enjoying Austin's live music scene.
  • Art & Culture: Places like the Umlauf Sculpture Garden provide a dose of culture, offering a quiet place to enjoy art amid natural beauty.
