The Park at Walnut Creek: a Smart Place to Buy a Home?

North Austin is experiencing a low inventory of homes, and it is no doubt why so many people want to live in this area: you can be not too far from downtown Austin and close to all the great shopping, dining and entertainment found at the Domain and Arboretum!  There are many communities and neighborhoods in North Austin, but only a select few have extremely low inventory coupled with heightened buyer demand.

One neighborhood in particular that I’d like to highlight is tucked away near the Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park, appropriately named The Park at Walnut Creek.  (The Park at Walnut Creek is a semi-private enclave of homes listed in the north Austin subdivision of Village at Walnut Creek).

I bring up that it is a small neighborhood because that is one of the reasons why residents love to live there – they like its park-like setting and that no through streets run through the neighborhood, truly giving it a small feel right in the middle of North Austin!

The homes were built in the mid-1980’s and this is an HOA community. It is a great community for either finding a home to remodel or, if you prefer, a home that has already been beautifully remodeled!

What do you get for your HOA payment? Well, other than the benefit of having the HOA guidelines to help keep the integrity of the neighborhood, there is a community pool with volleyball net, BBQ pits an a pergola, playground and parks. Driving around the community I saw many people out walking with their families or with their dogs and I could definitely see how outdoor-lovers would love this place!

Another thing I love about this neighborhood is that it borders the Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park – nearly 300 acres of picnic areas, playgrounds, places for your dogs to run free, trails, a swimming pool, sports courts and softball fields!

For these reasons, we feel that The Park at Walnut Creek is indeed a smart place to buy a home.  If you would like to learn more about this wonderful community and how you can call it home, contact me today!

  1. This community is one of those hidden gems in North Austin for sure. To get there, simply exit MoPac at 1325 (one exit south of Parmer Ln), and follow the access road as it curves and becomes Gracy Farms Ln. Make a left on Swearingen and you’re there! If you are looking for a close-in home that still feels tucked away, this is THE place!
