Austin Neighborhood Spotlight: Crestview & Brentwood

Austin was given the nickname the “City of the Violet Crown ” in the early 1890s to describe the color of the sky as the sun slid behind the hills.  When development first began in the Crestview and Brentwood communities, that beautiful violet glow of the sunset could be seen for miles, giving this area of Austin the notoriety of “The Violet Crown.”  This classic central Austin community has nostalgic 1940s bungalow-style homes known for their covered porches, with large backyards and quiet streets. Brentwood Neighborhood Park offers a pool, sports fields, a covered pavilion, and a walking path for all ages to enjoy.  With several urban markets nearby, Crestview residents also enjoy excellent food, shopping, and entertainment options.
