Flintrock, located eighteen miles northwest of Austin, is one of the newer neighborhoods in the Lakeway/Lake Travis area that touts beautiful views of the Texas Hill Country. The notoriously winding and steep Flint Rock Road leads you to the gated community of Flintrock Falls (on your right) and Bluffs at Flintrock (on your left) and then it winds through the Hill Country which lends itself to spectacular views of the homes and the hillside.
The Flintrock neighborhood is home to large individual estates as well as a beautiful gated community, Flintrock Falls. Flintrock Falls is home to subdivisions like Villas at Flintrock, Vistas of Flintrock and a secluded enclave surrounded on all sides by the Nicklaus-designed Flintrock Falls golf course, Escavera at Flintrock Falls. Located across from Flintrock Falls and backing up to Falconhead West is the Bluffs at Flintrock. From sprawling Hacienda style homes with gorgeous courtyards and elaborate outdoor kitchens to Tuscan-inspired one-story homes with hand chiseled travertine tile, the elegant style of Flintrock is undeniable.
Flintrock Falls (including the golf course) is situated on what was formerly the Hutto Ranch, which was also shared by The Hills of Lakeway. One of the things that makes Flintrock unique is its world-class golf courses. In fact, it’s the only private country club in central Texas with two side-by-side Jack Nicklaus designed golf courses. Flintrock Falls, which opened in 2002, features an 18-hole golf course co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Jack Nicklaus II.
A membership at Flintrock Falls Country Club also includes a membership at the adjacent Hills of Lakeway, which is home to Jack Nicklaus’ first signature course in Austin. There is a reciprocal relationship (membership) between The Hills and Flintrock, so both neighborhoods share golf courses and amenities.
In Flintrock’s Backyard
Lakeway Medical Village, which is still in development, is anchored by the community’s large hospital, Lakeway Regional Medical Center. Additional tenants will include senior living facilities, The Goddard School of Lakeway, La Quinta and Marriott, as well as other medical-related services and retailers.
A few miles down RR 620 is the Oaks at Lakeway– which is anchored by a 90,000-square-foot H-E-B grocery store and restaurant– and when fully-developed will feature a “Main Street” vibe with an entertainment district, shopping, dining, and hotels. Another project being proposed for a huge tract of land near Lakeway Elementary school is creating an Arts District to support the arts and culture that exist in this thriving community.
Flintrock is in the Lake Travis Independent School District. Students attend Lakeway Elementary, Lake Travis Middle School and Lake Travis High School, known nationwide for its stellar football program, a stand-out in Texas high school football.
