Sitting in the West Hills of Austin between Bee Cave and Lakeway is another one of the top master-planned communities in the Lake Travis area known as Falconhead. Residents also know the neighborhood as Spillman Ranch, but you might recognize the name from the Falconhead Golf Course, expertly designed by PGA Tour Design Architects and one of the top courses in Austin.
Families looking for that special mix of adventure, community and the views of the Texas Hill Country will find Falconhead the perfect choice to settle down. With close proximity to Lake Travis, the Texas Hill Country and Lake Travis ISD schools, picturesque greenbelts and nature trails, you might move here and never want to leave.
As the Lake Travis area has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, so too has the Falconhead community since the neighborhood began development in 2003. Within a 30 minute drive to downtown Austin and a 45 minute drive to the airport, you can savor the peace of the countryside and still enjoy the vigor of city life.
Families and residents interested in the Falconhead community have several choices of home styles — from Craftsman styled to Mediterranean villas, from garden houses to luxury homes, there is a little something for everyone.
The average home is about 3,600 square feet but there are several other options for home size, features and location — all factors that determine the wide range of prices throughout the neighborhood that begin in the $300’s and top out at a million or more.
Restaurants & Shopping
Residents are within a five minute drive to the Hill Country Galleria, which has tasty offerings from Cafe Blue, Chisos Grill, Pei Wei, Verts, Madam Maams, Maudie’s and several others that make up a growing list of choices for eating out in the area.
Even more choices become available as you head into Lakeway with several restaurants located at Lakeway Town Center II. It’s safe to say there are plenty of choices (maybe too many) all within 5 to 15 minutes of your front door.
When you are in the mood for shopping, the Hill Country Galleria has you covered. Dillard’s, Whole Foods, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sunglass Hut, Bath & Body Works and more are all within a five minute drive from home. The H-E-B in Bee Cave is a good option for grocery shopping or you can head north to Lakeway for a trip to Randall’s.
