Set in north central Austin, Rosedale has a history that can be traced to the 1860s. Although many of the homes are modestly sized, they are on relatively large lots and have been renovated inside while maintaining their exterior charm.
Because of the neighborhood’s desirable location and amenities, home prices are elevated but homes retain their value. This is a neighborhood not just in style, but function. It is very walkable and convenient to unique small businesses and restaurants.
A highlight of Rosedale is the 5-acre Ramsey Park with a swimming pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, and picnic areas. The neighborhood is also adjacent to the Shoal Creek Greenbelt and its hiking and jogging trails.
Rosedale is bounded by North Lamar/Burnet Road to the east, Hancock Drive to the north, Shoal Creek to the west and 38th Street to the south.
The neighborhood is just a few miles from downtown and the University of Texas. Public transportation by bus and rail is accessible to residents.
The neighborhood has a strong sense of community. The population is a mix of single professionals and young families attracted by the neighborhood’s convenient location and amenities, and longtime residents who are now empty-nesters and retirees.
Children in the Rosedale neighborhood attend Bryker Woods or Highland Park Elementary Schools, O’Henry or Lamar Middle Schools and Austin or McCallum high schools depending on exact location. All are among the highest performing schools in the Austin Independent School District.
Despite it’s secluded neighborhood feel, Rosedale is incredibly convenient to shopping and nightlife. MoPac Expressway is a hop away from the Rosedale border with immediate access to shopping areas including The Domain, Downtown Austin and Barton Creek Mall. Shop for last minute necessities at the Rosedale Market or head to Central Market for gourmet take-away, fresh produce and high end grocery items.
