Dear BDeFayette,
There are a few neighborhoods that could work for you. I suggest Shady Hollow as they have larger lots and homes from the 1970's-1990's. Many homes have been updated and its in the southwest part of Austin. Most lots in the original sections of Shady Hollow are at least a half acre, some are as large as a full acre. The schools are all exemplary and its only 15 minutes to downtown in off-peak times. Shoot me an email at BetinaForemanRealtor@yahoo.com and I can send you a few homes that might just work for you.

The 15 miles outskirts opens up your options to meet your Deciding Criteria. I've my eye on some land myself with similar criteria and would love to share it with you. If I were to post the hidden treasures then we'd miss an opportunity, eh? Please feel free to call Douglas Ray Goff to discuss @ 512-284-3930.

My house is for sale at 11720 Gaelic Drive, Austin Texas 78754. I have priced it to sell as I have moved out of state. It is a great location with quick access to all major roads, and downtown. It has 70ft yard behind the house which backs up to a protected greenbelt. The nearest house across the greenbelt is 150 yards. It has 4 bedrooms + game room, painted garage floor, and sears cabinets in the garage. Irrigation system, storage shed, and a pet friendly neighborhood and great neighbors surrounding the house. The house is move-in ready and can offer a quick close. It is also VA assumable to other veterans.

Please contact my realtor Nicole Fousek for viewing at 512-554-1706.
