Headed for the Hills
Peace and quiet, charm and natural beauty are causing these small towns in the Hill Country to become a little less small
ustin’s exponential growth — for better or worse — is apparent everywhere you look. But the Hill Country also abounds with smaller towns and areas, each with their own identity and charm. While some move to these towns, like Kyle and Buda, and commute to Austin, enjoying the benefits of both, others are seeking a little land and slower pace as well as the flexibility to work from home that has become so much more common. “Dripping Springs and Wimberley have become the hot ticket,” says Allure Real Estate agent Justine Smith. “And since low supply and high demand aren’t slowing down, I’m currently looking at Blanco in addition to Kyle and Buda for more affordable options.” The quality of life in these Hill Country towns is hard to deny, which is part of why those affordable options are getting harder and harder to find.
