Great Hills • Arboretum
The hilly terrain in Northwest Austin is some of the most picturesque real estate in the country. Driving west on RR 2222 is a pleasure all its own that may only be surpassed by the thrill of driving down the steep incline of Spicewood Springs Road as it connects with Capital of Texas Highway. Many homes in the Great Hills and Arboretum are enhanced by stunning hillside views. The highly coveted housing stock spans the gamut from contemporary glass jewel boxes to split levels to townhouses.
The Arboretum is a popular — and heavily shaded — shopping area that has maintained its cachet over the years. Nearby, Gateway Shopping Center and Target provide more consumer options. The Domain regional shopping center and Domain Northside are a hop, skip and a jump away, too.
One of Austin’s most beloved shopping areas is The Arboretum about 10 miles northwest of downtown. Shops are woven into the dense foliage in a thoughtful, appealing way. A wide array of stores greet shoppers — from a huge Barnes & Nobles Booksellers to Williams Sonoma and Pottery Barn. There are plenty of food options, too, including Honest Mary’s, a new natural food eatery that is packed daily.
