Smack dab in the middle of Central Austin, Mount Bonnell Terrace is an eclectic neighborhood offering a mix of modern and traditional architecture.  Running along Mt. Bonnell Road, the neighborhood abuts Mount Bonnell Park to the west and north, and many of the homes have immediate access to the park’s famous overlook, which provides unobstructed views of the city skyline and the Hill Country.  A limited number of houses also include lake front lots with direct access to the water.  Other properties may include unobstructed views of the downtown skyline, Lake Austin, Pennybaker Bridge or the UT Tower.
