The Courtyard in Austin, Texas
Located just north of Lake Austin and the iconic 360 Bridge, The Courtyard subdivision sits atop rolling limestone hills on one side and winds its way down to the tranquil waters and serene setting of Bull Creek. The private lakeside homeowner’s park, once the beloved Camp Tom Wooten Boy Scout Camp, enchants all who come to fish, picnic, sketch, float, grill and hike. Several of the street names, like Scout Island, Tom Wooten, and Inter Council pay tribute to its scouting origin. One can almost imagine the fun those scouts must have had camping along the shores there. Private boat docks for residents only, are available for lease as space is available. Many homeowners enjoy stunning views of the cliffs and the lake while others have waterfront residences and direct access to Lake Austin from Bull Creek. Soaring birds and abundant wildlife make the area even more appealing.
Developed as a residential community in the late 1970’s, The Courtyard presents its residents with a casual club environment and has both single family homes as well as condominiums and townhomes for those that prefer less maintenance. The Courtyard Tennis Club provides a variety of amenities for the active lifestyle. The Club offers its members 16 tennis courts, a swimming pool, work-out facilities, a pro shop and the Courtyard Grille. The kids can take swimming lessons while adults play a game of tennis or relax on the porch and appreciate the wonderful views.
Venture less than a mile to The County Line on the Lake, one of Austin’s famous barbeque restaurants. While waiting for a table, adults can socialize during happy hour on the dock and kids can have fun feeding the fish and the ducks. Other eateries nearby include Waterloo Ice House for a great grilled burger and Siena for those who want Northern Italian cuisine in a romantic setting.
Only 15 minutes from the heart of the capital city, The Courtyard is conveniently located off major highways, Loop 360 and FM 2222, but at the same time is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Live Music Capital of the World.
Austin Independent School assignments within The Courtyard residential area are: Highland Park Elementary, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School.
