Clarksville – Austin, Texas

/Clarksville – Austin, Texas


Approximately a mile from the heart of Downtown Austin, there is a community known as Clarksville.  Once there, the community’s houses give way to commercial and professional offices. These high-rise buildings tend to have shops on the first floor and apartments or condominiums stacked above them. In an eclectic mix of old and new architecture, buyers will find beautifully maintained older homes from the 1900s as well as more contemporary renovations of Victorian and bungalow-style houses.  Due to its proximity to the ever-growing popular heart of Downtown Austin, the neighborhood is stable with few homes coming onto the market. When homes for sale are listed here, they often sell quickly. The average size of these homes is approximately 1700 square feet with 2 to 3-bedroom floor plans. 


Clarksville is located just a few blocks north of the Colorado River and it traverses through Downtown Austin. This area is considered to be between 5th Street to the south, N. Lamar to the east, Enfield Road to the north, and MoPac Expressway to the west.


A full metropolitan lifestyle is within walking distance from homes here. The popular and surprisingly multi-purpose Whole Foods Market is within a few blocks of the neighborhood. Many Austinites partake in a relaxing daily ritual of jogging on the hike-and-bike path around Lady Bird Lake before returning to the area’s exceptional food, music and year-round culture scene.  A mix of living history, while each day possibly discovering something new are often what the residents of Clarksville experience in this worldly neighborhood.
