Established in the 1950s, Brentwood was developed on a cotton farm that was annexed by the City of Austin to build Brentwood Elementary and Brentwood Park. Like many other Central Austin neighborhoods, Brentwood experienced a huge population explosion when GI’s came back from WWII. Those 1950s and 1960s bungalows are still there today, with some new construction intermixed. Brentwood is a poplar area for UT grad students and professors because of the close proximity to campus. It’s also a popular choice for residents who want to live close to Downtown or take advantage of the bars and restaurants that have opened on Burnet Road. If you’re looking for Central Austin living, Brentwood is a great place to start your search. Scroll down to Read our Brentwood Neighborhood Guide.
