Master Planned Community Lakeside at Tessera on Lake Travis Has a Lakeside Setting, a Beach, a Boat Launch, a Waterfall Edge Pool and Handsome Brick Homes
Pretty Lago Vista is on the north shore of 19,000-acre Lake Travis in the Texas Hill Country, about 20 miles from downtown Austin, and is the site of Lakeside at Tessera on Lake Travis, a waterfront master planned community popular with families, empty nesters and baby boomers. It should have 2,000 homes at build-out.
The development sits on nearly 900 acres between the lake and the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Preserve, creating a scenic, soothing ambiance. Five single family home builders, including Lennar, Coventry Homes and Highland Homes, are making their mark here. Floorplans range from three to four bedrooms with two to three baths to four bedrooms with three to four baths. Homes may be one or two stories, and nearly all are made from brick. A front-facing garage is standard. Some residences sit along the lake.
Prices begin in low-$300,000s. The HOA fee is $64 per month. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices may change.
Amenities include the Lakeside Club, which overlooks Lake Travis and has a waterfall edge pool, a sun deck and a fire pit. There is also a private community boat launch and a beach with a mile of shoreline. Four miles of greenbelt trails give residents plenty of places to walk, run and bike.
Lago Vista is an attractive town with two golf courses, numerous lakeside parks, marinas, wineries and a number of annual events, including Casino Nite, a Cajun Cook-Off, the La Primavera Bike Race and more.
Lago Vista does not have a hospital, but Austin has several, including Seton Northwest Hospital, which is accredited by the Joint Commission and is the closest to Lakeside at Tessera.
Summer temperatures in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 40s, 50s and 60s. On average, the area receives 45 inches of rain per year.

Two Spanish explorers in the 16th and 17th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area and settled near El Paso in 1682. A French colony also existed for a time at Matagorda Bay. Americans started to settle at the edge of the Brazos River in 1821. Mexico, recently independent from Spain, controlled Texas at this time.
The American settlers eventually rebelled against Mexico and fought for their independence in the Texas Revolution (1835 to 1836). Legendary battles included San Jacinto and the Alamo. The U.S. annexed Texas in 1845, and the Mexican-American War began in 1846 as Mexico fought to keep Texas.
The U.S. captured Mexico City in 1848 and ended the war. The subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo not only kept Texas in the U.S. but gave the Americans ownership of California, half of New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Texas has been a part of the U.S. ever since.
The Lone Star State is the second biggest in the country in size, after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil, as well as cotton. Geography ranges from arid, flat plains in the west to the thick piney woods in the east.
Texas also boasts 100 state parks, the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the Alamo and Big Bend Mountains National Park. In September, 2017, one of its major cities, Houston, received 51 inches of rain during Hurricane Irma.
What are the Benefits of a 55+ Development?
Developments designed for the 55+ crowd offer a lot of benefits. The main ones are security, plenty of recreation opportunities and a sense of community with people of similar backgrounds, but the benefits do not end there. Nearly all 55+ single family home communities, particularly newer ones, have single story homes, whether single family homes, town homes or condominiums. No more having to go up and down stairs all day long. Many have a homeowners' association that take care of the exterior maintenance, including mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow. Others have rental programs so that if you decide to go on vacation for six months, the association will find a qualified renter for you. There are even communities that will, for a monthly fee, provide meals, housekeeping and 24/7 emergency services.
