Barton Hills Homes

“Before moving to Austin, Fridays were just Fridays. Now, I come home from work, run to Barton Springs, jump in, then meet my family for dinner at P Terry’s and then Sno Cones afterwards for the kids. During ACL, we have friends over for bar bq’s and beer. I almost forget that I am not on vacation.”

Like many other South Austin neighborhoods, Barton Hills looks a lot different than it did only a few years ago. The neighborhood is the gateway into the hillier areas of southwest Austin and attracts families, students, and downtown workers because of its proximity to Austin’s largest park and natural springs of Barton Springs Pool. It offers original, small homes that date back to the 1940’s and new million dollar homes that afford city views. No need to buy tickets to ACL! Just sit in your backyard to enjoy all the live music that echoes through the neighborhood during ACL’s September bash.

We were referred to Tom Sunstrom by a close friend and he exceeded our expectations. With only a weekend to find a home, he was able to show us a number of options and helped us identify the best fit. As a first time homebuyer, Tom’s expertise and guidance set him apart from the rest. - Scott H.
