Cat Mountain Homes For Sale
Cat Mountain is a tranquil, private neighborhood with high-end homes and nice views of the Hill Country and Colorado River. The neighborhood was originally developed in the 1970s and 80s and has seen continual construction through the following decades as more people moved to the area. The community is attractive to many single professionals and upper middle-class families.
Cat Mountain homes are in a very wooded part of town with shaded trees and easy access to outdoor recreation. Stillhouse Hollow Nature Preserve is just two miles away and offers residents a place to disconnect by hiking through mossy woods. After a quiet walk, Chez Zee American Bistro is a 2-mile drive for a tasty brunch with whimsical and eclectic décor. Right across the street from the bistro is Randalls where residents do their weekly grocery shopping or pick up a bottle of wine on the way home from work.
The neighborhood has a clubhouse, tennis and basketball courts, playground, picnic area, and swimming pool, all of which are within walking distance for most residents. The homeowners association provides unlimited access to these for a low monthly fee. Hikers and bikers can explore miles of trails in the neighborhood and enjoy up-close views of the surrounding hills and woods. For boaters, the neighborhood is a five minute commute from the nearest boat ramp. Many homes in the neighborhood have good sunset views and also panoramic views of the Hills, the Colorado River, or the Austin Country Club Golf Course. Many homes have upgrades to take advantage of the natural scenery such as enlarged windows, decks and terraces, outdoor kitchens, and private gardens. Some have multi-acre lots.
