BLACKSHEAR / PROSPECT HILL HOMES
Blackshear / Prospect Hill Homes
“I came to Austin to rent while I went to UT but in Blackshear I found the cutest home at a great price and got my parents to buy and rent to me. My roommates rent helps pay the mortgage and I ride my bike to school, the coffee shops, and of course, I can get to downtown and 6th street in a heartbeat!”
Families, students, and hard-working Austinites choose Blackshear/Prospect Hill to be close to downtown, University of Texas at Austin and Houston Tilliston College without sacrificing the community and amenities they crave.
