Discover ‘The Rough Life’ in Lake Travis

March 31, 2019 GMT

Voted Austin’s Best Master-Planned Community two years in a row by the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin, Rough Hollow is known for its resort-style amenities and direct access to Lake Travis. Featuring 22 neighborhoods with semi-custom and custom homes ranging from the $300,000s to $3 millions, Rough Hollow provides diverse home options in a lakefront setting.

Within proximity to downtown Austin, Rough Hollow is in the community of Lakeway, which offers a variety of entertainment options such as fine dining, luxury shopping, wineries and golf courses, and is part of the acclaimed Lake Travis Independent School District.


Rough Hollow residents enjoy more than 3 miles of Lake Travis shoreline, including direct lake access and member access to Austin’s Yacht Club & Marina. Other award-winning amenities include a water-themed community center, a full-time activities and lifestyle director and 22 miles of hike-and-bike trails. Rough Hollow is currently adding a tennis court, basketball court, pickleball court, an outdoor fitness station and a day dock with kayak launch to their list of resident amenities.

For buyers looking for the privacy of a gated community and the serenity of lakefront living, The Peninsula at Rough Hollow makes for the ultimate lakeside hideaway that feels like a top-tier vacation home. At 65 percent sold, The Peninsula has just released its final phase of estate-sized lots, and only a few waterfront dockable lots remain.

The best way to discover Rough Hollow is to visit the community’s Welcome Center, which is open daily. Or, plan a road trip to attend Rough Hollow’s annual event “A Day in the Life” on Saturday, April 6, from noon to 4 p.m. Buyers can tour up to 11 model homes and explore “The Rough Life” with free food, drinks and family fun throughout the community.
