If you were to look up in the dictionary the words, ‘grand,’ ‘impressive,’ and ‘magnificent,’ the homes of Costa Bella would appear as photos in lieu of a written definition. Located on the cliffs overlooking the Hurst Creek Arm of Lake Travis, Costa Bella is a smaller, impressively gated, subdivision of sixty-two homes. While the subdivision may be small, the homes of Costa Bella, however, are anything but. Each home, generally speaking, has at least four thousand square feet to its name; most come with pools and guesthouses (including a few with garage apartments); and every last home is situated on a spacious lot with incredible tropical landscaping. The feel of Costa Bella is that of the Italian Riviera, with the grand Italianate stuccoed styling, swaying palm trees, and cliff-side residence. One can imagine that all this grandeur does not come cheaply and one would be right: houses in Costa Bella average between $1-$5 million, and up.
While some homes have direct access to Lake Travis, others have access through the private marina subdivision maintains. Costa Bella boasts a beautiful clubhouse, a community pool, tennis courts and basketball courts, and regularly hosts events for its homeowners, like Halloween parties and Easter egg hunts. While Costa Bella itself is secluded luxury, given its location at the end of Oak Grove Boulevard, it also happens to be neatly located: it is less than a mile away from Ranch Road 620 and the conveniences offered there. Nearby restaurants include Hudson's on the Bend, Hill Country Pasta House, Flores, Java Dive, Fore, Rocco’s and Carlos and Charlie's on nearby Hudson Bend. Costa Bella is a short drive to Lakeway and the amenities offered there including golf at Yaupon, Live Oak, and the Hills. Students living in Costa Bella would attend Lake Travis elementary school, Hudson Bend middle school or Lake Travis high school.
