Balcones Woods, established in the mid 70′s, in Austin, Texas is a sought after community wedged between Mopac and 183. The homes are situated on large lots with mature trees and lush landscaping. Homes in Balcones Woods are typically priced from the mid to high 200′s to 300′s; the price is often driven by the updates in each home.
The homeowners have “fought” hard to have one main entrance/exit to the community, thus cutting down on pass through traffic in such a busy area of Austin. Not too long ago, I received a call about the neighborhood and the woman described Balcones Woods as “the neighborhood with all the rooftops she saw while driving home on Mopac everyday but the one she could never find.”
