Onion Creek Real Estate

Onion Creek is a quiet, idyllic community in south Austin located just east of IH-35 around Onion Creek Parkway and Pinehurst Drive. Built in the mid-1970s, Onion Creek is tailored to the needs of large families and retirees searching for a safe, peaceful neighborhood with an active community and plenty of green space. With home prices ranging from $200,000 up to $700,000, Onion Creek real estate has something for almost everyone.

Life in Onion Creek is lived in what is best described as a resort style, often centered around the sprawling Onion Creek Country Club. Founded in 1974, the members-only club is home to a unique 27-hole course with design input from Jimmy Demaret, Ben Crenshaw, and Bill Coore. Also available to members are tennis courts, an expansive clubhouse, a Junior Olympics-sized pool, exercise facilities, high-class dining, and more.

The Onion Creek community, led by the Onion Creek Homeowners' Association, is active, organized, and responsible. In addition to holding events (such as neighborhood garage sales), the HOA also arranges for garbage pick-up, maintains neighborhood landscaping, and funds a 24-hour security patrol around the neighborhood. It is no surprise that crime rates in Onion Creek are very low, a significant factor in boosting the intrinsic value of Onion Creek real estate.

Though the Onion Creek area promotes a secluded feeling, the neighborhood is hardly isolated. IH-35 to the west is one of the most important traffic arteries in Austin, connecting Onion Creek residents to the retail centers on William Cannon, as well as the bustling streets of downtown Austin.
