Bartons Bluff - Spyglass Austin Area
This area is not an official neighborhood but is a popular area to live. This narrow band of land that runs between MoPac and Barton Creek south of the Colorado River along the western bank of Barton Creek is home to one of the largest concentrations of town homes, condos and apartments in Austin.
The views of the creek and the city skyline are great, the easy access to MoPac and nearby Loop 360 make it a convenient address, plus downtown Austin is just minutes away. The shopping centers along Bee Caves Road just West of Mopac in Westlake Hills provide all of the conveniences you need. But one of the most compelling reasons to live in the area is its location along the Barton Creek greenbelt and its proximity to Zilker Park.
Some people may throw this area in with Barton Hills but officially Barton Creek is the Western border of that neighborhood. The reason for the name is because the two primary, and pretty much only, roads in the area are Barton's Bluff and Spyglass. Barton's Bluff is just a short artery off Mopac's feeder road and Spyglass makes a loop next to Barton Creek and hits the same Mopac feeder road twice just South and just North of Barton Skyway's Western section. Barton Skyway, however, does not connect to its Eastern brother because of the greenbelt.
