Lago Vista Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Texas
Lago Vista, Texas, is a serene lakeside community located in the Hill Country of Central Texas. The expansive, natural beauty of Hill Country continues to attract homebuyers who are looking for a rural lifestyle that is both calm and convenient to the city and all its major amenities. Real estate options consist of single-family detached homes, condominiums and townhouses as well as residential land lots for custom building.
Lago Vista was a planned waterfront development along the shores of Lake Travis in the mid-20th century as a resort community. Residents and visitors could spend their time camping, swimming, boating, fishing or just enjoying the scenery. Though incorporated as a city in the 1980s, Lago Vista has held on to its resort-like personality. Golf, tennis and water sports are the activities of choice for the community's 6,000 or so residents. And when a change of pace is in order, the bustling metropolitan city of Austin is only 20 miles to the south. Other nearby communities includes Briarcliff, Hudson Bend, Jonestown, and Lakeway.
The surrounding area boasts several impressive attractions as well. Notably, Lago Vista is adjacent to the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge, a protected area that is home to two endangered species. Also nearby is the Flat Creek Estate Winery, offering wine-tasting and guided tours of the historic site. Families with school-age children will appreciate the convenience of a locally based school system, the Lago Vista Independent School District. The district has three campuses, 80 classroom teachers and about 1,000 enrolled students.
