Oak Hill Homes For Sale
Oak Hill is one of the largest neighborhoods in Austin. West Oak Hill is a long-established area near the intersection of U.S. 290 and SH 71, known as the "Y" in Oak Hill. West Oak Hill is actually the western part of a large region that includes older forested home sites, newer master-planned communities, shops and strip malls, and many amenities.
Originally a separate town called Live Oak Springs, Oak Hill was annexed by the city of Austin in 2000. The area now called West Oak Hill was long considered the rugged outskirts of the city; but as the population has grown, it has become more urbanized with new malls, restaurants, and megastores being built. The semiconductor company AMD has moved its local headquarters to this area. Still, people who want to stay close to nature and hear the coyotes at night can get a relatively large lot for a reasonable price. There are plenty of backroads in West Oak Hill leading through largely unpopulated wooded areas.
Residents consist mainly of couples and small families. The neighborhood is very kid-friendly, with pools, fields, quality schools, and summer camps in the area. Austin Community College has its Pinnacle Campus here. Although West Oak Hill is part of Austin, it very much retains its independent feel.
Oak Hill Park and Ride serves as a commuter hub for Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority, providing flier service from southwest Austin into the center of Austin. As of December 2013, the Park and Ride is located at the Austin Community College District Pinnacle campus.
The Oak Hill area is within the Austin Independent School District.
