Circle C • Oak Hill
Circle C Ranch has proven to be one of the most prized master-planned communities in the metro area with its wide boulevards, lush landscaping and Hill Country ambiance. More than 5,000 homes have been built on the seven-square-mile parcel near Escarpment Boulevard and Slaughter Lane. Despite the density, there’s no sense of crowding. It’s an intrinsically relaxing neighborhood that oozes with easy Texas hospitality. HEB Grocery Co. built one of its largest upscale stores in Circle C and prompted the development of boutique retail to serve the area. Another draw is the Swim Center Aquatics Center, which boasts an Olympic-size pool, competitive swim events, swim school, toddler pool with water features, sand volleyball and other sports courts.
Oak Hill, where Texas Highway 71 and U.S. Highway 290 meets at the gateway to the Hill Country and Dripping Springs delivers a sense of being way out of town but not really. It’s an easy and pleasing drive into the heart of Austin from this prime location. Check out the description of Far West Austin for more on this neck of the woods.
