Location

The Allandale neighborhood is actually composed of three parts:  (1)  Older Allandale, (2) Allandale, and (3) and Allandale North.  When most folks think of Allandale they are referring to the part that is bounded by Anderson Lane on the north, with Burnet Road as its eastern boundary, and Mopac as the western boundary.  Exactly where Allandale ends on the south side is often up for debate, but it’s generally considered to be Shoal Creek at 45th Street.  

Homes in Allandale

The Allandale neighborhood is comprised mostly of mid-century ranch style homes and bungalows – although many are being replaced with contemporary homes.  Be prepared for some potential foundation issues here.  Parts of Allandale sit along a fault line so there is frequent soil shifting that can cause cracks in interior sheetrock – those that live there like to think of them as character lines.  

About the Allandale neighborhood

Allandale is a mature neighborhood with towering oak and pecan trees. The streets are wide and winding, making it a frequent choice for runners, bike riders, and walkers alike.  There are plenty of activities to choose from in Allandale with nearby use of an off-leash dog park; Northwest District Park with its tennis courts, pond, playscape, and swimming pool; baseball fields; and a running track.   With easy access to the restaurants and other activities along Anderson Lane and Burnet Road, Allandale is a vibrant part of Central Austin.  It’s also convenient to Mopac so navigating around town is relatively simple.

Allandale home values 

Allandale property values have appreciated in recent years, but compared to some of its neighbors like Northwest Hills or Rosedale, prices tend to be a little lower.  That’s why Homesville founders Marquette and Paul bought their first home in Allandale.  Paul says, “I fell in love with Allandale on a walk with my wife. As we approached Gullett Elementary we watched parents from the neighborhood walk their kids to school. It felt a bit like we were in the 1950s.  It was nice, sort of old-fashioned, and cool in so many ways.  I will always associate Allandale with that laid back, family vibe.”  In 2016, Austin Monthly rated this the fifth hottest zip code in Austin.  

History of the neighborhood

The Allandale neighborhood dates back to the 1930s. The area was initially owned by George W. Davis, who was given the land in 1841 by the President of the Republic of Texas for his service in the battle at San Jacinto. For history buffs, the Davis family cemetery, a Texas Historical Cemetery, can be found within the borders of Allandale.
