Cat Mountain Homes

Take a look out of the window of almost any home in Cat Mountain and you’ll forget momentarily that you are in Texas. Views of the unmistakable Loop 360 bridge, Austin Country Club’s rolling golf course, glorious Mount Bonnell, Lake Austin, or Shepherd Mountain leave you feeling like you are on vacation some place where the pace of life is a bit slower, the air is a bit fresher, and the sunset is just a bit better. These are a few of the many reasons why residents of Cat Mountain love it there and why so many choose to stay. West of Mopac along Lake Austin, Cat Mountain sits atop, well, a mountain, at least by Austin standards, and includes several neighborhoods in the hills of northwest Austin such as The Overlook at Cat Mountain, Cat Mountain Villas, Mesa Valley and Northwest Hills Lakeview.

Established in the late 70’s and early 80’s, Cat Mountain offers a variety of styles of homes, almost all of which include a patio, deck, or terrace, tailored to enjoy the stunning lake and city views. Wooded lots, mature shade trees, and pet deer may bring about a feeling of seclusion, but residents of Cat Mountain are far from isolation, and have any and every convenience at their fingertips, with the Arboretum less than ten minutes to the north, and downtown right at fifteen minutes to the south. Nature lovers, hardcore cyclists, boaters, and those who simply like to take a morning jog or evening stroll won’t have to venture far to find what they seek with Bright Leaf Park, boat ramps to Lake Austin, hills galore, and Mount Bonnell, all in their backyard – literally. Residents who prefer more organized activities can use the neighborhood association’s clubhouse, which includes a swimming pool, basketball court, tennis court, picnic area, and playground. Home to empty-nesters who have been in the neighborhood since the 70’s, as well as young families who are just moving in, Cat Mountain continues to charm – and will - providing an urban refuge for generations to come.

Tom (Sunstrom) is the best agent I’ve ever worked with. Not only did he manage taking me to see 37 houses in the 2 ½ days I had available, he handled getting a fabulous inspector, recommended great contractors to work on the remodel, and basically attended to every detail as I was out of state. He then did the same for my mother! We’re both very pleased with his representation and have recommended him to our friends as well. - Regina I.
