Congrats on your exciting relocation opportunity to Austin. I am confident that you will find the area to be everything you expect from a "cool" place to call home. If acreage is the driving force and you want close proximity to quaint "old town" environments- shopping, dining, etc. then I would agree with my peers that Georgetown and Bastrop would be greeat opportunities for you. I would also throw in Salado, TX which is about 10-15 minutes north of Georgetown. It is also a great ecclectic area offering acreage lots and a tremendous downtown atmosphere consisting of artist, antiques and great food- EVEN A WINERY. Feel free to visit our site - http://www.CornerstoneNewHomeSolutions.com where you can shop hassle free for homes based on your preferences and convenience. We would love the opportunity to earn your business.
Our best to you,

There is a bedroom community just east of Austin that is 30 minutes from the Airport called Bastrop. The commute is all highway and very relaxed. There are a couple of estate communities that offer a lot of what you are looking for as well as several acreage properties that you would love. Bastrop has a growing artist community, a great venue for live music, quaint little downtown with antique shops and neat specialty shops.
I personal live in Bastrop and love all the little town quirks with the convenience of being able to be in the heart of Austin in 45 minutes for anything the bigger city has to offer.
When are you relocating?
Contact me and let me start looking for you. I have a couple of places in mind already.

I will say that most of the Texas hill country, while beautiful, doesn't have a plethora of tall trees. We have a variety of Oaks that are typically less than 80 feet tall. If you would prefer a tall forest, rather than the hill country, Bastrop would be a great choice east of Austin.

Looking for water: want reasonable proximity to antique shopping: prefer west (not southwest) or north of Austin for proximity to Dallas: want to be an hour away from the airport but no more than 3: want to be in woods near water (how about on water?) - winner is - Marble Falls.
1 hour from the airport (not including traffic issues). 1 hour from Fredericksburg - best antique shopping in Central Texas. Easy trip to Dallas on 281 (about 3 hours). Small town, but lots of people from Austin frequent Marble Falls because of all the water (Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls). Some of the best values in the hill country.
But, this is not Austin, it's the hill country. Hip is downtown Austin, but that may be too "hip" for you, not a lot of "forests", and unless you have a couple of million, getting to water is going to be difficult.
Your requirement for being near water means you're going to be somewhere along the Colorado river (this is the one that runs west to east, not the one you often hear about that runs from the Rockies to California). Affordable land near the river is very expensive as you get closer to Austin.
Going east of the airport, you should consider Bastrop - water, pine trees, great value, small town, 30 minutes to the airport pretty much regardless of traffic, not known for antique shopping, easy trip to Dallas though.
But your price point also needs to be known, and the style and size of home you're looking for, along with any particular amenities you're wanting.
Feel free to call or email me for more info.

While you provided a lot of information an in depth conversation is needed to narrow the window.
My best friend moved to Columbus a few years ago. I recently helped another family from Cincy, the Schottenstein family. There are several areas to consider. I live in the West/Southwest of Austin in the Dripping Springs - Bee Cave - lake Travis area. We also wanted a little space. Our neighborhood has 1.5 to 5 acre lots. Many areas to consider.
I'd like to talk with you and get a better idea of what you are looking for.
Feel free to give me a call anytime from 10 AM to 7 PM central standard time seven days a week, and we can discuss your move and I'll do all I can to assist you!!
