About Villas on Town Lake
The Villas on Town Lake is an older, somewhat hidden Downtown Austin condo development that sits right on the Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trail. Just pop out the back gate and you’re about where Waller Creek meets the Trail. Towers of Town Lake is made up of various buildings connected by stairs and deck walkways. Due to the lush, almost nautical feel to it, it’s like no other Downtown Austin condo.
The Villas on Town Lake was completed in 1982. While there may have been a standard finish out, there generally isn’t now. Many people have upgraded their units in one way or another. One bedrooms at the Villas on Town Lake start at a fairly compact 675 square feet. 2 bedrooms are at least 1271 SF. While you can definitely find that square footage in other Downtown Austin condos, many of the newer developments start their 2 bedrooms around 900 SF. There are elevators in the three-story complex but not all units are reachable by elevator. If that might be an issue for you, pick your unit carefully.
Villas on Town Lake Amenities
The Villas on Town Lake has gated parking that sits underneath the units. A favorite amenity is the back yard that has picnic tables and a grill for cooking out. Beyond the fence, residents watch the view of Lady Bird Lake and Hike & Bike trail walkers going by. The pool and hot tub is nestled in the midst of the complex and is surrounded by banana trees. There’s also a gym and racquetball court. Yes: a racquetball court.
Villas on Town Lake Lifestyle and Location
Villas on Town Lake has fantastic access to the Hike & Bike Trail. People walk the trail as a quick route to the Four Seasons, the restaurants there and the rest of Downtown. While once a bit off on its own, the Villas is now in the midst of all sorts of development occurring in the eastern side of Downtown Austin. There’s the anticipated Waller Creek Tunnel and all the development along the Creek that might occur because of it. Since 2006, the Shore and Milago Condominiums, the Legacy Towers apartment building, the Mexican American Cultural Center and all the Rainey Street restaurants and bars have arrived. All pretty positive development from the looks of it.
