Condos have underground parking, while the town homes and single family homes have an attached garage. Condos have one to two bedrooms, while townhomes have two bedrooms and a den. Villas may have up to four bedrooms and three baths.
The condominiums are the only new homes available. Prices for these start in the $200,000s. Prices for resale town homes begin in the mid-$300,000s, and prices for the single family homes start in the mid-$400,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices may change. The HOA fee covers lawn care, road repair, exterior pest control, concierge services and more.
The village center, Club Salus, has a fitness room, yoga studio, indoor/outdoor pool, bistro, and bar. Outside are walking trails and the two-acre Central Park. A full time Good Life Director fills the social calendar with activities and events.
An on-site public library manages book discussions and guest speakers. The Rough Hollow Yacht Club and Marina has a boat launch, grill, and full-service ship store. Membership is included in the HOA.
Tucked into the south shore of the 65-mile long Lake Travis, Lakeway offers 600 acres of parkland and greenbelt. Although its levels can vary dramatically, Lake Travis is the state's clearest reservoir and a major recreation hub. Fishing, boating, camping, and zip lining are all popular pastimes. Austin's Texas Performing Arts Center offers the best in live music and theater. The University of Texas at Austin is a great resource and a fun place for a concert, lecture, symphony or more. It also has an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
With 12 major hospitals and medical centers, at least six of which are award-winning, the Austin area is a good place to age. Nearly all facilities are accredited by the Joint Commission, and several are Primary Stroke Centers.

Two Spanish explorers in the 17th and 16th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area and settled near El Paso in 1682. A French colony also existed for a time at Matagorda Bay. Americans started to settle at the edge of the Brazos River in 1821. Mexico, recently independent from Spain, controlled Texas at this time.
The American settlers eventually rebelled against Mexico and fought for their independence in the Texas Revolution (1835 to 1836). Legendary battles included San Jacinto and the Alamo. The U.S. annexed Texas in 1845, and the Mexican-American War began in 1846 as Mexico fought to keep Texas.
The U.S. captured Mexico City in 1848 and ended the war. The subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo not only kept Texas in the U.S. but gave the Americans ownership of California, half of New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Texas has been a part of the U.S. ever since.
The Lone Star State is the second biggest in the country in size, after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil, as well as cotton. Geography ranges from arid, flat plains in the west to the thick piney woods in the east.
Texas also boasts 100 state parks, the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the Alamo and Big Bend Mountains National Park. In September, 2017, one of its major cities, Houston, received 51 inches of rain during Hurricane Irma.
