Crestview is a north Austin neighborhood that reflects similar characteristics as it’s bordering neighborhoods of Allandale and Brentwood. It’s located between Anderson and Koening Roads and between Lamar and Burnet Roads Because of Austin’s expansion this is a very centralized neighborhood to many attractions including downtown Austin, the University, Town Lake and more. In addition it’s a hop skip and jump to north attractions like The Domain, The Arboretum and more. Crestview was developed in the early 1950’s as a small suburban type community. As you explore Crestview you’ll see many signs of the mid century Austin culture and architecture. Many of the homes are indicative of the mid century styles of the times, some of which run on a the small side and therefore include add ons to accomodate today’s home owner. Some homes have been removed and owners have built on their lots and many homes have simply gone through various updates. There are still many homes that provide opportunities for home owners to put their own current stamps of design on it.
