Technically “East Austin” is defined as the Austin MLS Areas 3 & 5 and includes the following neighborhoods: Rosewood, University Park, Chestnut, Comal, Glenwood, Mueller, Delwood, University Hills, and Windsor Park.
“East Austin has unseated South Congress and Travis Heights as Austin’s newest hipster home base”, so says a recent Forbes article. With redevelopment in every section of housing east of IH-35 and with the likes of America’s best BBQ at Franklin Barbecue (Bon Appetite Magazine), it’s no wonder why.
As lending guidelines for builders and developers continue to loosen up, the development on the east side is back and here to stay. Whether your taste is classic craftsman or sleek & modern, East Austin has it all and is an amazing glimpse into the future of Austin living!
