Situated in the hills along Lake Austin just off City Park Road, north of Emma Long Park and west of Loop 360, sits Westminster Glen, a 250-acre, master-planned community of 175 luxury homes. A picture perfect development, residents here enjoy the peace and quiet of the country – deer and all- as well as beautiful views of the Hill Country and Lake Austin. The sky seems to come alive at night in Westminster Glen since there are minimal city lights, causing you to forget that you are only 15 minutes from downtown or the Arboretum.
Most of the homes in Westminster Glen are “Texas Tuscan”, a style that combines the grandeur of Italian architecture with Hill Country elements such as native stone and wood. These homes blend seamlessly into the wooded Hill Country landscape, creating a feeling of relaxed luxury and quiet charm.
Families are especially drawn to this area not only for its safety and security, but also for its social offerings. A home away from home for many residents, River Place Country Club is Westminster Glen’s private, members-only neighborhood club that aims to keep every member of the family happy with its endless amenities - an 18-hole golf course designed by U.S. Open champion and Austin native Tom Kite, a swimming pool, eight outdoor, lighted tennis courts, a full fitness facility, summer camps, dining facilities, and social activities for the kids throughout the year. With all of this, it is no surprise that Avid Golfer magazine voted River Place “Best Family Club in Austin” in 2006. The kids won’t just be well rounded socially either. Residents in Westminster Glen love that their children attend schools in the award-winning Leander Independent School District. Homes are anywhere from 3000 to 7,000 square feet, and range from $500,000 to $1.5 million.
