Zilker Real Estate: Charm and Personality on Every Tree-Lined Street
Zilker is a tree-lined neighborhood located in the rolling hills of south central Austin. Bordered by beautiful Lady Bird Lake to the north and bustling Lamar Boulevard to the south and east, this is one of the city’s liveliest, most active communities. A 6-minute drive from downtown and only 18 minutes from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Zilker’s convenient central location is also ideal for residents who work downtown or travel for business.
With so many opportunities to swim, cycle and hike in their own backyard, Zilker residents are often on the move. But when it’s time to slow down and take it easy, some of Austin’s finest shopping, dining and entertainment options are right around the corner.
Residential construction here dates back to the early 1900s, and Zilker’s eclectic mix of new and historic homes make it one of Austin’s most desirable neighborhoods. A testament to Zilker’s enduring appeal, new home construction still continues today, and many of the older homes have been updated and remodeled over the years. From small bungalows of under 1,000 square feet to spacious, luxury homes with more than 4,500 square feet of living space, the Zilker neighborhood tells its own unique story through the charm and personality of the homes on each tree-lined street.
“It’s intellectual, it’s quirky, it’s a place where people of all ages, from all walks of life can be passionate about the future and lead interesting lives,” says Cory Desha, a 27-year-old Austin local who works for Save The Children and volunteers at Zilker Park during large events like Blues on the Green. “It’s Austin at its most Austin, which means it’s Austin at its best.”
