Barton Heights offers a relatively affordable alternative for young professionals and families who want to take advantage of the hip South Austin lifestyle. Barton Heights is now officially the northern half of the Zilker neighborhood.
Most of the homes in Barton Heights were built between the 1930s and the 1950s, and in keeping with that time period most still remain cohesive with the ranch style. Recently there has been an infusion of new builds ranging from Craftsman and Modern architecture. Barton Heights sits between Zilker Park and Auditorium Shores. Barton Springs pool is an Austin staple, within walking distance for some and no more than a mile and a half for the rest.
Local schools consistently get high marks. This, its close proximity to shopping corridors south and in Westlake as well as restaurant row along Barton Springs keep this neighborhood in high demand.
