Ask any native Austinite where Allandale is and they’ll tell you, “northwest Austin”. Not anymore. That was then, this is now, and Allandale is very much in the heart of “central Austin”. Built in the 1950’s, Allandale is bounded by Anderson Lane on the north, by Shoal Creek at 45th Street to the south, by Burnet Road to the east, and MoPac to the west. It has become a very desirable area to live with its tree shaded lots, good-sized homes, and proximity to downtown. It seems like there is a park every time you turn a corner in Allandale, making it a wonderful neighborhood for families. If you drive through Allandale before dinnertime during the week, you may feel like you are living a few decades back when life was a bit simpler - fathers playing ball with their sons, neighbors talking to one another as they water their plants, and kids riding their bikes on the sidewalks. And the residents of Allandale work hard to keep it that way through a famously active, get-it-done neighborhood association that distributes monthly newsletters and maintains a very informative blog with neighborhood news and safety updates.
Homes in Allandale are typically mid-century style with nice curb-appeal, and many have been recently updated or re-modeled to offer modern amenities like stone counter-tops, stainless appliances, and hardwood floors. At Christmas time, neighbors uniformly display large red and white striped candy canes in front of their homes – a tradition that has continued since the 1950’s. Central to almost everything, and idyllic as America, motherhood, and apple pie, Allandale is a great value.
