North Central

Some of the most charming neighborhoods in Austin

Welcome to North Central


Featured Neighborhoods: Allandale, Crestview, Brentwood


What to Expect

  • There is plenty of charm throughout these neighborhoods with mature, tree-lined streets filled with a mix of longtime residents and young families.  
  • Hyde Park has predominantly historic homes made up of cute bungalows, with more of an eclectic vibe. Allandale is a quieter neighborhood where many ranch-style homes sit on larger lots. The Brentwood/Crestview neighborhood is a hipper area with colorful homes and plenty of character.
  • One thing is certain, the convenience is hard to beat with these neighborhoods sitting just north of The University of Texas at Austin and Downtown, and with easy access to major highways Mopac, 35 and 2222.
