People love this classic neighborhood and it’s one of the more established neighborhoods in the Lake Travis area. Weaving through the golf courses of The Hills Country Club and surrounded by the larger Lakeway community, The Hills is a beautiful and convenient place to call home. This gated community is popular with families, golf enthusiasts, vacationers and retirees.
The Hills of Lakeway, now designated as The Hills (or Village of The Hills), was originally in the extra-territorial jurisdiction of the City of Austin. The Hills became an incorporated city in Texas in May 1997. New construction is ongoing, along with remodeling, because you can find homes in the neighborhood with year built dates going back to the early 1980’s.
The Hills community is in the heart of Lakeway but considered a village. As a resident, you’ll have an exclusive address of “The Hills, Texas 78738” — designated by the The United States Post Office.
This neighborhood consists of over 600 homes, many with spectacular views of the neighborhood golf courses and surrounding Hill Country. The construction of newer custom homes (mostly surrounding Flintrock Falls) continues to add to the number of homes in the area. Homes are architecturally controlled and start on the smaller side at 2000 square feet with some of the larger residences going up to and over 6000 square feet of living space.
The wide range of style and size of homes in this Lake Travis neighborhood come with a wide variety of pricing that starts in the mid $200’s and reaches to well over a million.

For groceries, take a short drive to Randall’s or HEB. And let’s not forget that just down the street is the future site of the Lakeway Town Center set to break ground in 2014.

It’s a given that golf is a big part of this community and you’ll be surrounded by some of the best golf courses in the Lake Travis area.

The World of Tennis Fitness Center has been recently updated to include more amenities such as a new pilates studio and new spin classes. If tennis is your game, try one of the 16 outdoor or 2 indoor and climate controlled tennis courts to practice your swing. And on those sweltering July afternoons, stop in to savor the recreational swimming pool at the fitness center.
