Shady Hollow is one of Austin Texas's most sought after neighborhoods for a number of reasons. We have excellent schools: Bowie, Barranoff and Bailey. The lots are spacious and the homes are comfortable and inviting. The neighborhood is friendly or private, your choice. There is an eclectic blend of homeowners: retired, self-employed, families, and partnered couples. We have several neighborhood clubs: Gardening Club, Book Club, and Kiwanis Club. The Community Center is a big attraction for those who host large party's. Residents can rent the Community Center for $15 when they need space for 50 or more people. We host a fun Fourth Of July Parade every year that draws a big crowd and there are prizes for the most creative decorated cars/floats!
One thing to remember when buying a home in Shady Hollow. Make sure that it is really IN Shady Hollow. If you want the real thing, you need to look for homes in: Shady Hollow, Estates of Shady Hollow, The Enclave Shady Hollow and Shady Hollow West.
There are a number of newer developers that have tried to cash in on the popularity of this wonderful neighborhood. So when you see homes in: Southland Oaks AT Shady Hollow, Barker Ranch AT Shady Hollow or The Village AT Shady Hollow or The Gabardine AT Shady Hollow, please note these areas are not a part of the actual Shady Hollow community. If you purchase homes in these communities you will not be IN Shady Hollow. These newer communities are nice to be sure, but typically the lots are smaller and these home owners do not have access to our pool or community center. For example The Gabardine is a free-standing condo community. They will have their own park and pool once the development is finished. These are lovely condos that are great for a person that does not want to maintain a yard but still wants to have access to a large park-like area with BBQ grills and plenty of space to enjoy the out doors.
