Older Homes from the 1970s and 1980s in Austin
The small pocket of older homes in 78729, east of 183 and north of Anderson Mill, is commonly called Anderson Mill East. This area has small pockets of newer homes (built after 1990) mixed in with the subdivisions of Anderson Mill Village, Forest North Estates, Springwoods, Village Oaks, Northwest Woods and Jolly Oaks.
When you drive around this neighborhood, you see trees. Lots and lots of towering trees. Some lots have so many tress, you can barely see the houses.
In the mornings, even in the hot Texas summer, you will often see people out for a walk, for a run, or working in their yards. You might notice how many streets don’t have sidewalks.
