Central Austin




Some of the oldest homes in the city are found in Central Austin. This area, which borders downtown, was the original residential district for the city. Neighborhoods like Old Enfield have wonderful estates that date from the early 1900’s.

In addition, Pemberton Heights and Tarrytown both provide a small town feel with many neighborhood activities. These neighborhoods provide a nice mix of commercial, residential and recreational development including Lions Municipal Golf Course and Deep Eddy, one of Austin’s natural spring fed pools.

Just north of downtown, is the eclectic Hyde Park neighborhood and located just west of downtown is Clarksville. Both neighborhoods are popular with artists, professors and families and are prized for their craftsman style bungalows. All of these neighborhoods are convenient to downtown and provide an urban element to daily life.

Includes MLS area 1B and 4.

DON’T MISS: Christmas Lights at 37th Street – For one block of 37th Street every December, residents decorate for the holidays with a decidedly “Keep Austin Weird” flare. This is a sight not to be missed.


Adding to the “small town” feel of Central Austin are the numerous community events that take place throughout the year. Here are just a few to check out:
