Within Austin’s West End, about 1 mile from the heart of Downtown Austin, there is a community known as Clarksville. Upon approach, the city becomes more mixed-use, and houses give way to commercial and professional offices. What high-rise buildings there are tend to have shops on the first floor and apartments or condominiums stacked above them. In an eclectic mix of old and new architecture, buyers will find beautifully maintained older homes from the 1900s as well as more contemporary renovations of Victorian and bungalow-style houses. Real Estate in Clarksville is at a premium because of its envious proximity to the heart of Downtown Austin. The neighborhood is stable with few homes coming onto the market. When Clarksville homes for sale are listed, they often sell quickly. The average size of these homes is approximately 1700 square feet with 2 to 3-bedroom floorplans. Some multi-family housing also exists and because there is such architectural diversity, all of these styles seem to work well together in this well-established neighborhood with mature trees and sidewalks.

A cosmopolitan lifestyle is within walking distance from Clarksville homes for sale. The flagship Whole Foods Market is within a few blocks of the neighborhood. Many Austinites partake in a relaxing daily ritual of jogging on the hike-and-bike path around Lady Bird Lake before returning to the area’s exceptional food, music and culture scene. Living so close to the heart of downtown creates the opportunity for a daily discovery of something new to love about the ever-changing heart of Austin while the historical charm of Clarksville remains the same.

Clarksville homes for sale are part of the Austin ISD and students in this community are assigned to some of the most exceptionally-rated schools among the entire Austin independent school district. Elementary school students attend the comparably small Mathews Elementary (PK-5). Older students attend the O Henry Middle School (6-8) and Stephen F. Austin High School(9-12).
