About Granada Hills
Granada Hills is one of those neighborhoods that provides its residents with a sense of country living while being close to everything. The neighborhood, developed mostly in the ’70s & ’80s, features large estate-like lots and beautiful, mature trees. The homes were all custom built by local builders and range from sprawling ranchettes to multi-level traditional, with a few Spanish or contemporary homes mixed in.
Granada Hills lies outside the Austin city limits but within the Austin ETJ which gives its residents a lower tax rate than within the city. The Granada Hills neighborhood has a voluntary HOA which is very affordable. The HOA maintains the entrance sign, landscaping and the community pool and park area. The close proximity to the acclaimed Austin Waldorf School makes Granada Hills a choice neighborhood for many families with school age children. The neighborhood is served by the Austin Independent School District. The sense of community runs strong in Granada Hills with area residents participating in a number of community events throughout the year. Shopping is close by with the continuing developments around the Escarpment and Slaughter Lane area. Seton Southwest Hospital is just a stone’s throw away and medical offices and services continue to grow around the hospital area.
