One of Austin’s little gems, Crestview is home to people of all kinds – educators, artists, families, and those who have seen Austin grow throughout the decades. Located north of Burnet Road between Justin Lane and Anderson Lane, Crestview has seen a recent surge in growth and reconstruction while still managing to keep its 1950’s charm. With broad, tree-lined streets, Crestview is a peaceful neighborhood that lends itself to taking an evening stroll or visiting with your neighbor in the front yard. Though a diverse community, homeowners come together for neighborhood festivals, art shows, and potlucks, and have even worked together to build a neighborhood mosaic wall. There is an active neighborhood listserve for pertinent neighborhood information, as well as a monthly newsletter.
Most of the homes were constructed in the 1950’s “American bungalow” style and boast beautiful hardwood floors. Many homes have been remodeled recently, including adding a second floor or extending the back portion of the house, given the relatively large sized lots. Central to almost everything (15 minutes to downtown, 10 minutes to Gateway/Arboretum), Crestview allows for convenient living while still feeling secluded in the middle of the city. Homes range from the lower 200’s to the upper 300’s.

“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.
