Austin young professionals clamor for these homes in trendy neighborhood
Austin’s Riverside area has been labeled “up and coming” for a while, but we have news: Riverside already has arrived.
The bustling entertainment district — just a stone’s throw from downtown Austin and Lady Bird Lake — is now a go-to spot for trendy eateries and hip music venues, like Austin mainstay Emo’s and the brand-new Grizzly Hall. It’s also the place where everyone, especially young professionals, is clamoring to live now, with thoughtful housing developments popping up on large lots and offering first-class amenities.
MileStone Community Builders is constructing The Eastwood at Riverside, a collection of modern homes starting in the low $300,000s. Phase 1 began in 2014, and it’s become one of Milestone’s best-selling communities, with more than 100 homes already closed. Phase 3 just opened for sales in mid-July, so the race is on to secure the perfect home before they’re all gone.
Timeless design is paired with tech-savvy and eco-friendly elements — pretty much the ideal combination. Keyless entry, digital programmable thermostats, radiant barrier reflective decking, and insulated double-pane windows are a few of the assets, making for a smart home that reflects today’s smart buyer.
Options range from the three-bedroom, two-bathroom Seaholm, which is cozy at 1,272 square feet, to the more than 2,100-square-foot Benson, which features four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. No matter the floorplan you select, an array of high-end finishes and designer touches are yours for the choosing.
“The No. 1 reason people are buying at Eastwood at Riverside is that it’s a great value — you definitely get more for your money,” says MileStone’s James Carreon. “Private yards and modern yet comfortable homes, all for a reasonable price close to downtown.”
Jumping into the Austin property game might seem intimidating, but MileStone proves there are still homes out there at affordable price points — and in desirable areas like Riverside. Just imagine what’s at your fingertips (downtown, Rainey Street, and the hike-and-bike trail), and what’s waiting for you back at home.
