Escondera Condominium Real Estate: Gated Privacy in Hill Country Splendor
Located southwest of downtown Austin, this gated collection of condominium homes sprawls over a 60-acre expanse of beautiful, natural Hill Country land criss-crossed by numerous hike and bike trails.
Getting downtown for work or play is easy; Escondera is about 20 minutes from the city center. And getting out of town is simple, too; it’s also about 20 minutes to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
These Mediterranean-style Escondera Condominiums were built from 2005 through 2008, with a variety of floor plans including bedroom flats, townhomes or single level ranch villa plans. Larger than typical condo units, ranging in size from 1,646 square feet up to 2,451 square feet, these units are upgraded with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets and luxurious bathrooms.
Homeowners enjoy a gorgeous community pool and cabana, where they gather on weekends to socialize and swim. Available gas grills add a tasty element to neighborhood gatherings.
“We have beautiful views. The whole property is gorgeous,” says Ernestine Lammers, who’s lived at Escondera for two years. “There are lots of hike-and-bike trails that people use all the time.”

Abundant Outdoor Recreation, Convenient Shopping and Well-Regarded Schools
Escondera Condo dwellers are also fortunate to be very close to a number of conveniences. Shopping and dining options abound. Condo owners are a quick 10-minute drive from Barton Creek Square, a large regional mall filled with more than 180 shops and restaurants. In addition, there are five other major shopping centers within a 15-minute drive, which include over 280 stores and restaurants for residents to choose from.
There are also plenty of convenient options for outdoor recreation. The Barton Creek Habitat Preserve, providing a profoundly quiet and beautiful atmosphere, surrounds the neighborhood on three sides. Nestled along four miles of Barton Creek, Barton Creek Habitat Preserve is a scenic and pristine landscape that protects the habitat of two species of endangered songbirds and helps in preserving the quality of water in the Barton Creek watershed. The exquisite natural area also provides a safe habitat for dozens of native Texas plants and trees. Just a short drive from Escondera, golf enthusiasts enjoy the four courses at Barton Creek Resort, a private club that is among Austin’s most prestigious.
Homeowners are also attracted to the area’s schools. Children of families in Escondera Condos attend Austin Independent School District schools, including Oak Hill Elementary, O. Henry Middle School and Austin High School. Austin High and O. Henry were rated “Academically Acceptable” by the Texas Education Agency, while Oak Hill received an “Exemplary” rating.
Beauty and Convenience: A Perfect Place to Call Home
Austin residents looking for convenience, value and fewer home maintenance hassles find Escondera Condos to be a perfect solution to their housing needs. The attractive, Mediterranean-style condo homes offer all the amenities anyone could want — including upscale interior upgrades such as granite countertops and high ceilings. The natural Hill Country backdrop of the surrounding area compliments the attractive exteriors of the buildings.
Because of the condos’ location, homeowners have a leg up on the rest of the city when it comes to enjoying downtown shopping and dining in the evenings. “Convenience was the biggest selling point for us,” says Lammers. “We can’t believe how lucky we are. If we want to go downtown for dinner, we are going opposite of the traffic, so we can be in the city in 15 or 20 minutes.”
