Eanes Country Home - Commons Ford Road


Eanes Country Home

Nestled in trees at the end of a long gated driveway, this country home is a wonderful find in the acclaimed Eanes ISD. The updated kitchen, covered front porch, and acre lot covered with Oaks and native landscaping makes this a perfect place to enjoy life in a country style setting. Inside, the flowing floorplan includes a formal dining, study and family room. The private Master suite is downstairs, with 4 large bedrooms upstairs.

A fenced backyard with play area and patio makes outdoor living a part of everyday life. In the front, the stone terrace with iron table and chairs is perfect for outdoor dining and enjoying the rustic fire pit and seasonal creek. A stone rimmed vegetable garden is ready for spring planting! You will appreciate the 2 car carport, 2 car garage, and storage building. A wrought iron electric gate across the long driveway provides security.

The Commons Ford corridor is a part of the very popular Austin Lake Hills area, a well established neighborhood in the Eanes School District. This active association brings together families with a beautiful lakeside park, swimming pool, boat ramp, boat dock, and roped beach area. This is a family friendly neighborhood with a rustic, country feel. Established in 1985, the Lake Hills Neighborhood Association has steadily improved the quality of life of the Lake Hills community.

Downtown Austin and U.T. are about 20 minutes away. Shopping, theaters and restaurants are available within the neighborhood, or along Bee Cave Road. Barton Creek Mall is near Bee Cave and Loop 360.
