Built in the 1960s and 1970s when this area was essentially a suburb of Downtown Austin, Balcones West is not a prime, central location. Located right off Anderson Lane, west of MoPac, the neighborhood is perfect for someone who needs easy access to commute. And, with mature trees, large lots and a highly rated school district, you can’t really go wrong. The majority of the homes are fairly small at less than 2,000sqft, so if you’re looking for character and don’t need a huge house, Balcones West might be the best place to start your search.
