It’s no surprise that Highland Hills is a highly desirable Austin neighborhood. Located northwest of RM 2222 and MoPac Boulevard, Highland Hills offers residents the best of both worlds: a convenient, central location – with easy access to downtown, UT and the tech corridor – and a quiet, family-friendly atmosphere.

Highland Hills’ boundaries are Northland Drive, Mountainclimb Drive, Shadow Valley Drive, Highland Hills Drive and Balcones. Its properties range from older family homes built in the 1950s – 1970s (some completely remodeled, others ideal for remodel) to newer houses. Homeowners enjoy the neighborhood’s wide, tree-lined streets, large lots and rolling hills; many homes have views of nearby canyons or toward Austin’s downtown.

Outdoorsy types enjoy Allen Park, a 10-acre park with panoramic views of the downtown skyline, picnic tables and a loop trail; while shoppers can take advantage of the many high-end boutiques on nearby 35th Street or the Arboretum Shopping Center. Other amenities include Crenshaw Athletic Club, where the swimming and gymnastics programs are popular; several grocery stores; and dining options such as longtime local favorite, Chez Zee.

Nearby schools are also a big draw. Students attend Highland Park Elementary, Lamar Middle School and McCallum High School; both Lamar and McCallum offer outstanding arts programs.
