Rollingwood is one of Austin's most affluent and sought-after neighborhoods. Technically not part of Austin, it is actually a separate town which was formed in 1955. Conveniently located just off Hwy. 1 (MoPac), and north of Bee Cave Road, close to Lady Bird Lake, Rollingwood is an exclusive neighborhood of 1,500 residents. The people form a close-knit community where people know one another, and they all meet up at the neighborhood's private athletic club. 

Other amenities include the neighborhood playground and swimming pool, peaceful neighborhoods with mature trees and well-manicured lawns, and proximity to some of Austin's most popular recreation and shopping venues. Zilker Park, Lady Bird Lake, and Barton Creek Greenbelt are just a few minutes' drive away. Nearby Bee Caves also offers high-end shopping and dining. The active neighborhood association sponsors regular events to bring the community together.

Rollingwood is an attractive location for families. Western Hills Athletic Club offers tennis and swimming lessons for children of all ages. Much of the neighborhood is located within the Eanes school district, one of Austin's top-rated school districts. There are also several top private schools in the area.
