Highly Rated Schools, Country Club Amenities and Award-Winning Real Estate
In addition to its award-winning builders, people looking to buy a home in Austin are attracted to the quality of life in Circle C Ranch. Whether gearing up for 18 holes at Grey Rock Golf Club or enjoying quality time with children who reap the benefits of the strongest and highest-rated public schools in Austin, with some of the newest campuses, life at Circle C Ranch is one of opportunity.
Area homeowners also appreciate the unique selection of amenities and attractions. Circle C Ranch Metropolitan Park is the cornerstone of this community’s outdoor lifestyle, with 460 acres of real estate dedicated to parkland prairies, wooded hills, and manicured fields that perfectly compliment Circle C’s bountiful array of recreational facilities.
On La Crosse Avenue sits the state-of-the-art Circle C Swim Center with its Olympic-size heated outdoor pool — the only one of its kind in Texas. The Swim Center includes a baby pool, bathhouse, grill area, snack bar, playground, and sport courts for basketball and volleyball. A second swimming complex and community center, which includes meeting rooms and office space, was finished in early 2012. Swim lessons and programs are available for swimmers of all strengths. The Circle C Select Swim Team was organized by the Circle C Homeowners Association.
“We do water polo, swim lessons, competitive swimming, you name it,” says Marcus Miller, a lifeguard and swimming instructor for the Circle C park district who grew up in the neighborhood. “It’s perfect for raising a healthy family.”
From the Great Outdoors to Austin’s Best Shopping and Dining
Nature lovers can travel a quick 10 minutes down the road to The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, where thousands of native plant and wildflower specimens are protected and preserved. Both children and adults can learn more about their natural surroundings by attending the center’s educational programs on Austin’s ecological environment and horticulture.
Cyclists and rollerbladers of all strengths take advantage of the Veloway — three miles of a protected, 23-foot wide track wrapped around the neighborhood in a serene, hill country landscape. This silky smooth pavement is equally suited for training sessions as well as for families looking to enjoy life on two wheels in a safe, controlled environment.
For some of the city’s most celebrated shopping, dining, music and entertainment, residents take a short 15 to 20-minute drive to downtown Austin. Folks who like to stay close to home have plenty of options, too. Just around the corner from Circle C is Escarpment Village, which features convenient shops and popular restaurants like Mangieri’s Pizza Café. The Alamo Drafthouse is also a popular spot where residents can enjoy local beers on tap, and see the latest movie releases, just a short trip from home.
