The SoCo District is the most sought-after area in town. If you you could pick just one neighborhood that best exemplifies the vibe Austin is famous for, it is here in Bouldin Creek.

Venerable NW Hills area on oversized lot (sold)
4108 Farhills. Price is $625,000
Here is a tempting price if you will do the updating. On a quiet, picturesque little street, this four bedroom home has about 2,790 sq. ft. This is an ideal residence for a number of reasons. The floorplan has a good "flow" of rooms, and it is sitting on an unusually large piece of land--both wide and deep. The back yard goes back just over 60 feet--plenty of space for a garden, pool or playground. Most importantly, the large lot creates enough impervious cover to allow for substantial size to be added to the existing residence (per the City's permitting codes). You could end up with a house just over 5,000 sq. ft. If not important to you, it could add a large bump in value in any future resale. Click the link above to read all about it.

Two more benefits--the gardens and shade trees are out of this world, and it is all sitting next to the Blanco River. It is about a 45-minute drive (non rush hour) from the Oak Hill "Y".

Very private villa on a hilltop setting, close-in NW Hills (sold)
$949,000 (Area 1A)

The 5000 sq. ft. villa has two master bedrooms, elevator, putting green and studio space. One of the owners is a New York Interior Designer which means the home looks like something you'd see in a magazine. Just listed, the seller made an eye-popping decision about this price.
