Enfield Homes For Sale
Enfield is a historic, upscale neighborhood with elegant homes, large, well-furnished parks, top-performing schools, and a convenient location. The neighborhood's appearance harkens back to the early days of the city, and residents strive to maintain the area's unique environment. The area is considered one of the most prestigious locations in Austin because of the historic atmosphere and convenient location.
The Enfield neighborhood is just west of the University of Texas campus and north of downtown, so residents can easily access the shopping and entertainment amenities of those areas. It also borders MoPac Expressway and Lamar Blvd., two major thoroughfares, offering easy access to other parts of Austin.
As one of the most desirable neighborhoods in town, Enfield is home to some of Austin's most distinguished residents, professional singles and families, as well as university faculty. The urban planners of the time emphasized the natural beauty and topography of the land, curving streets to accommodate big trees. Houses and public spaces had grand water features, and most homes are set back from the road. Enfield offers large, well-preserved homes on wide, tree-lined streets; lots of green space; and several parks - a tranquil sanctuary in the middle of the city.
Spanning the eastern section of the neighborhood is the Shoal Creek Greenbelt, a large, natural forested area that stretches from north central Austin to Lady Bird Lake where you'll find an impressive hike and bike trail. Within the neighborhood, the greenbelt expands into Pease Park, with many playing fields and grassy areas and an open leash area for dogs. Pease Park is popular among Enfield residents where a jazz festival is held and families flock to Eeyore's Birthday, a quirky Austin tradition. Other local amenities include West Austin Park and Caswell Tennis Center. Bordering the neighborhood is Duncan Park, which includes a hiking trail and a challenging and popular BMX (extreme biking) track.
Austin ISD serves students living in Old Enfield. Casis Elementary (K-5), O. Henry Middle (6-8) and Stephen F. Austin High School (9-12) are the assigned schools for this community.
