You’re relaxing on a sandy beach as the gentle, warm breeze blows off the clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Your kids are off in the distance building a sand castle — and playing together peacefully. The friendly staff member from the all-inclusive resort approaches and asks if you need a drink refill and fresh towel. Your phone is off and your work is done. All you need to do is sit back and let the sound of the ocean waves wash over you. As your body sinks into the soft sand, you relax and drift away …
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.
Christmas is a special time of the year. The time when gorging on Santa themed sugar cookies isn’t cause for alarm and a family intervention. A month-long celebration of holiday traditions, mugs of hot cocoa, family get-togethers and unlimited shopping sessions.
But when you want to get back to basics and get into the true spirit of Christmas, just get into your car! Living in the Lake Travis area is such a great reason to take a day trip out to one of the many colorful towns surrounding us, and what a better place to visit than Fredericksburg, Texas?
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.
