Buying a home in Westlake means luxury, amazing schools, convenience, prestige, and community.
Situated on the Edwards Plateau with 7,566 acres of hills to its west, Westlake showcases gorgeous rolling green landscapes, proximity to downtown, and exemplary schools of the Eanes Independent School District. A tightly woven community, boasting serene peace and rural preservation, Westlake residents enjoy boating on Lake Austin on the weekends and walking the Barton Springs greenbelt trails of Westlake’s proverbial backyard.
Westlake is a separate city nestled between downtown Austin on one side and Lakeway on the other, offering the best between two thriving and distinct communities. Westlake is part of the enviable 78746 zip code, within 4 to 10 miles from Downtown Austin, bordering Lake Austin to the north and east and Barton Creek to the south.
Given the gorgeous landscapes and particularly accessible location, it is no surprise this luxury neighborhood echoes desirability on all accounts. However, the Eanes Independent School District (EISD) is why many families flock to Westlake to snatch up coveted real estate. Westlake Hills is the only city completely within the Eanes Independent School District (EISD).
Ranked one of the best districts in the United States, EISD consists of approximately 7,700 students between six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. Elementary aged children attend Eanes Elementary School, Bridge Point Elementary School, Barton Creek Elementary School, Cedar Creek Elementary School, Forest Trail Elementary School, Valley View Elementary School. They then follow on to Hill Country Middle School and West Ridge Middle School, before graduating from Westlake High School. Westlake High School continues to receive exemplary rankings across many academic and athletic categories.
Housed in the Old Rock School House, in July 1999, One World Theatre opened as an extension of the arts-in-education program with a mission to educate and inspire children and adults with multicultural entertainment programs. Now One World Theatre is a prosperous live music venue and a community gem Eanes students and adults treasure. In 1986, the Eanes History Center was organized to preserve the Eanes community and development history. Planted in the middle of the Eanes Elementary School campus, the Eanes History Center enjoys a symbiotic relationship within the Eanes Independent School District as a learning center and research library, serving more than 1,200 students annually.
