Watersedge is one of Austin’s most exclusive luxury gated communities. Located on the east side of Lake Austin off of Mt. Bonnell Rd., Watersedge sits on a scenic portion of Lake Austin, providing incredible water views from nearly every property. In addition to mature trees, paved private walking trails, and large lots, each residence also offers a pool and private boat dock. As the only controlled-level lake in the city, Lake Austin remains at a constant level throughout the year. The water level is maintained by the Lower Colorado River Authority through connection with the Mansfield and Tom Miller Dams, ensuring that levels will remain constant, even during drought.
Despite its secluded setting, the Watersedge is located within the Austin Independent School District, and area schools include Highland Park Elementary, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School. Private schools in the vicinity include St. Theresa’s Catholic School and St. Stephen’s Episcopal School. The University of Texas and St. Edward’s University are both within a twenty minute drive.
Watersedge is conveniently located near several local restaurants, including Kerbey Lane, Olive and June, and Dry Creek Café, as well as a Whole Foods and Central Market. The Domain, an outdoor shopping complex, offers mid-range and high-end retailers, including Neiman Marcus and Louis Vuitton, is less than a 15 minute drive north. The Austin Country Club is less than seven miles away. Interstate 35 is a quick drive to the east, providing access to State Highway 290. Downtown is an easy commute via the MoPac Expressway.
Area amenities include Bright Leaf Preserve, a 200 acre nature park offering guided hikes and educational programs in botany and geology. Mount Bonnell Park is within easy walking distance, providing an overlook with stunning views of the city and Lake Austin. Due to its location between Lake Austin, Bright Leaf, and Mount Bonnell Park, the Island is surrounded by green space and open vistas, creating a feeling of seclusion and privacy within the city.
Most properties at Watersedge were constructed between 1983 and 2003. The neighborhood is characterized by larger lots that afford homeowners significant privacy, as well as high-end finishes.
