7 Homes For Sale in Travis Heights / South River City, Austin


The Travis Heights/South River City neighborhood is a vibrant and eclectic community in Austin, Texas. The neighborhood is located south of the Colorado River and north of South Congress Avenue. The area has a rich history and was once home to many prominent Austinites, including Governor Elisha Pease, who lived in the area from 1854 to 1857.

Neighborhood history:

It was originally settled by German immigrants who moved here from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and other states. The land was originally owned by Peter Kraemer who sold it to William Swain, a surveyor from New York. Swain laid out the original town plan for South River City which included streets named after his wife’s family members such as Ann, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Mary Streets.

Types of homes in South River City

The first houses were built on Ann Street around 1839 and the neighborhood is a mixed-use residential area. In the early 1900s, South River City was considered a wealthy neighborhood with many large homes that were built on lots that are now only 6 feet wide. In fact, there are still some very large homes in the area today.

What residents love about South River City neighborhood:

Due to its proximity to downtown Austin, Travis Heights is a popular location for young professionals who work in the city center but want to live outside of it. There are several restaurants and bars located within walking distance of each other on South Congress Avenue and Barton Springs Road as well as several shops along East Riverside Drive near Barton Springs Pool.

Travis Heights residents also enjoy easy access to Lady Bird Lake which offers plenty of recreational opportunities including kayaking and canoeing on Town Lake (also known as Lady Bird Lake). The City of Austin’s Parks Department also offers free concerts throughout the summer at Butler Park located just across from Barton Springs Pool on East Riverside Drive.
