Nestled in the warm coves of Lake Travis sits one of Lakeway’s newest master-planned communities, Rough Hollow. This waterfront neighborhood which prides itself for embodying the “casual elegance” of lake life, is a perfect place to settle down and enjoy the Lake Travis Lifestyle.
The vision of Rough Hollow came from a local developer that knows the Lake Travis area well, Legend Communities. They have teamed up with Crescent Communities, which is based out of Charlotte, NC., to give residents a place where luxury meets adventure with a feel of “roughness” that the landscaping around the lake is known for.
Residents enjoy the breath-taking views of the Texas Hill Country while indulging their love of Lake Travis, the 65-mile reservoir that is the prize of the greater Austin area.
The 1,800 acre community set along over three miles of Lake Travis shoreline will feature approximately 1900 home sites in thirteen unique neighborhoods when complete. Home builders in the neighborhood are constructing quick move-in homes or build on your lot single family homes.
If you’re looking to build custom, you can do that too. Select lots are available for custom home sites. You can also choose from available resale or to-be-built offerings from custom builders who have already chosen home sites and design options that are ready for your finishing touches. Prices of custom homes on premium lots with lake views are in the $1 to $3 million range.
Restaurants & Shopping
Residents enjoy fantastic eats without traveling out of the neighborhood. The Grille at Rough Hollow, Lakeway’s newest lakefront dining experience is located above Rough Hollow Yacht Club. The restaurant features continental American cuisine and spacious outdoor patios with grand views of the Hill Country. Enjoy a drink or two and take in the gorgeous Lake Travis sunsets.
