Amenities for 78726When I first moved to Austin in 2004, the shopping along 620 was pitiful: a few places to buy rocks and swingsets and a handful of other businesses. In the last 8 years, a giant HEB opened up on the corner of Anderson Mill and 620 and a huge Home Depot opened as well. Now the whole corridor has a decent selection of places to buy stuff you need without having to drive "in to town". Stuff like moving boxes, BBQ and even bigger swingsets.

You might be able to park them in your yard, or you might not. It usually depends on two things: 1. The local ordinances (code) for where vehicles can be parked and 2. Whether or not your HOA (Home Owners Association) allows it. In many areas, if you don't have an HOA, then where you can park is usually determined by the city, or town. HOAs can further restrict parking from the rules set by the city or town, but they can't make them more permissive.
Austin Parking CodeA handy dandy search for "Austin Parking Code" yielded this rule: "The City of Austin’s Restricted Front Yard and Side Yard Parking Ordinance prohibits parking a motor vehicle in the front or side yard of a residence except in a driveway or a paved parking space. These areas are designated on the Restricted Parking Area Map." If you click on the link for the ordinance (above), you will find a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) with a lot more detailed information about what is, and isn't permitted for parking areas (old, new, grandfathered-in). Not suprisingly, the area where the photo is taken isn't shown on the map as being subject to additional approved parking restrictions. Although several other homes in the neighborhood had multiple vehicles, included RVs, parked in front and on the side of homes, this one really caught my eye (hence the photo). If you don't want to see yards covered in vehicles like this in your neighborhood, make sure you know what the HOA restrictions are before you buy. And by the same token, if you have a bunch of cars and stuff you want to keep on your property, make sure you buy in an area where it is allowed.

Older Homes from the 1970s and 1980s in AustinThe 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.
