Bouldin Creek, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin, Texas, offers an artistic, bohemian vibe in a sublime suburban setting of streets shaded by Heritage Oak trees.
“With its cool shops, it’s the perfect embodiment of hip Austin,” says Shay Millheiser, a global real estate advisor with Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty. “The residents are well-off, but the atmosphere of the neighborhood is understated, not ostentatious.”
Founded around 1900, Bouldin Creek is named after Col. James Bouldin, an early settler, and the creek that runs through it. Unlike other communities in the city, it’s designed for walking, whether you’re wearing cowboy boots or Christian Loboutins.
It’s a place where longtime residents, young professionals with families, and the occasional celebrity co-exist as equals. “Bouldin Creek,” Millheiser says, “has a little bit of something for everyone.”
