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.
