Preserve at Lake Travis
Tucked into the Hill Country south of Ranch Road 620 and adjacent to the three thousand acre Balcones Canyon Conservation Tract, the largest contiguous nature preserve in Central Texas, is the one hundred acre community of The Preserve at Lake Travis. Just east of Lakeway Boulevard, the entrance to The Preserve can be found at Dave Drive, and rests just behind a wall of businesses, which protect it quite nicely from all the noise and traffic associated with 620, while still allowing for easy access to all of the shops and restaurants along the highway, including The League, Roccos, and Artisan Bistro---all of which are five minutes away. The Preserve is also near to the new Lakeway Regional Medical Center, which is scheduled to be completed in early 2012. Built after 2006, The Preserve was designed as a master planned community with both Andalusian-style townhouses and single family homes---providing a little something for everyone, in many different price ranges, generally starting in the $300s and going as high as the $600s. Only four builders have built in this subdivision: Sendero Homes, David Weekly, Village Builders and Plantation Homes.
As The Preserve is built into the hills, views are definitely a highlight on the menu. You can see for miles either into the Balcones Canyon Preserve or toward Lake Travis, Mansfield Dam and Lake Austin, depending on where the home is located within this subdivision. Students living in The Preserve can take advantage of the nearby and rapidly growing Lake Travis Library, and would attend Lake Travis Elementary, Hudson Bend Middle School, and Lake Travis High School.
