Homes for Sales in Canyon Creek in Austin, TX
Why do people live here?
What is now Canyon Creek was once the ranch and hunting land of former US Congressman Jake Pickle and the now established neighborhood has preserved much of the natural beauty the area has to offer (1). The picture at the bottom was taken on my drive down Boulder Lane and gives you a good feel for what the drive through neighborhood is like. Large oak and pecan trees form a near canopy in some areas. The lanes are wide and winding and the easements are expansive and well maintained. Many of the homes in the area back up against the rare, protected greenbelt area. It really is a pretty area and the homes are built to match.

Best of all, you're just a short drive to a few Austin originals; Torchy's, Dos Chivos, Noble Sandwiches and Jenna's Asian Kitchen...and I'm going to include Spec's since they're from Houston!
