If you want a subdivision that, in places, feels more like the Austin of old, replete with gorgeous Hill Country views, Cardinal Hills might be for you. Located on the east side of Ranch Road 620, across from Lakeway, and bordered by Gebron Drive and General Williamson Drive to the north and south, respectively, it has access to all of the amenities that Lakeway provides, but enjoys limited authority from the city itself. While there are plenty of new developments within Cardinal Hills, like The Canyons at Cardinals Hills, there are still plenty of unique, older homes with acres of land attached to them. Cardinal Hills is impressively affordable compared to Lakeway, and homes, depending upon their location, age, and acreage, vary in price from the mid-$200s to nearly double that.
The golf courses of Yaupon, Live Oak, and the Hills are but a short drive away as is the renowned World of Tennis complex. Falconhead Golf course is the only public course in the neighborhood and it is just 5 minutes away. Cardinal Hills’ proximity to 620, makes life easy when running errands, with Randall’s grocery chain, major banks like Chase and Bank of America, and more shopping and restaurants, just a quick zip down the road. School-age children living in Cardinal Hills would attend Lake Travis Elementary, Hudson Bend Middle School and Lake Travis High School, all part of the acclaimed Lake Travis Independent School District.
