Allandale is one of the more desirable neighborhoods in Central Austin because of its active (voluntary) home owner’s association, walkability, quiet setting and low traffic streets. The bulk of the neighborhood was built in the 1950s and 1960s, so you can expect single story homes on large lots with mature trees. Recently, we have seen some infilling with everything from one story, Craftsman style new homes to luxury, custom homes you’d expect to find closer to Downtown. Plus, Allandale is becoming a walkable neighborhood, giving it more of an urban feel. Burnet Road has seen several restaurant openings – with hot spots like Bufalina Due, Chi’Lantro, Noble Pig, Peached Tortilla and Barley Swine. Alllandale’s proximity to major transportation outlets like MoPac, IH-35, 183 and 360 that make it convenient to commute to almost anywhere in Austin.
