Highland & Northwest Hills’ biggest asset is its close proximity to downtown while being a self-contained neighborhood in a hill country setting. Nearby Mopac/Loop 1 provides easy access for traveling north or south. Many homes in this area were built in the mid-late 1970’s, with a variety of ranch styles and soft contemporary. Some modern architecture can be found as well. Bull Creek greenbelt offers amazing hiking opportunities with miles of trails dotted with swimming holes and waterfalls. Several large shopping centers are close by, including The Arboretum at Great Hills.
