Lake Austin is a constant level section of the Colorado River that winds its way 22 miles from the base of Lake Travis, through Westlake Hills to just west of downtown Austin. In 1940 the Tom Miller Dam was constructed creating Lake Austin, now used for flood control, electrical power generation, and recreation. Some of the area's finest waterfront homes reside around this beautiful stretch of lake. Residents enjoy Lake Austin’s tranquil waters that are perfect for enjoying a variety of water sports. Most luxury waterfront homes on Lake Austin have a private boathouse in their backyard making it easy to enjoy the short boat ride to several popular restaurants adorning Lake Austin's shores. Some of these beautiful homes are located in Westlake Hills, and students attend Eanes ISD.
