Westminster Glen Estates features more than 200 single-family homes on lots ranging in size from 1 to 5 acres. Our quiet neighborhood has a small-town atmosphere, nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Spectacular views are enhanced by thousands of oak trees and many different types of birds and other wildlife. Our children can attend the nearby, award-winning Leander ISD schools, including River Place Elementary, Four Points Middle School and Vandegrift High School.
The subdivision is located just outside Austin’s city limits in Travis County and are not subject to City of Austin taxes. Portions of the subdivision are in Austin LTD and ETJ jurisdictions.
Located along City Park Road just west of Capital of Texas Highway near RM 2222, we are about 30 minutes from downtown Austin, and conveniently located to the Arboretum, the Domain, Four Points, Lake Austin and Lake Travis.

Austin Water has installed advanced digital water meters in our neighborhood. Among the advantages for homeowners are very detailed analyses of water usage that can help you reduce your bills. Water leaks and unusual usage patterns can be seen on a daily basis, and you can set billing and usage notifications to let you know when something is out of the ordinary. Details of the rate structure and how it affects your bill is also available.
The software that does all of this is easy to access, just go to Austin’s WaterSmart portal and sign up.
Westminster Glen is currently under City of Austin Water Restrictions. Please be sure you are following the rules to conserve water (and to reduce your water bill!).
Please be sure to check the current Travis County burn ban status before using firepits or outdoor fireplaces.
Westminster Glen Estates is in a wildland-urban interface zone, with natural areas within and surrounding our subdivision. Wildfires are a common occurrence in such areas and made worse by alternating years of plentiful rainfall followed by drought.
Click here for information about the Westminster Glen Firewise® Initiative and see what you can do to reduce the danger to you and your neighbors.
To help mitigate a potential wildfire disaster, the Austin City Council voted on April 9, 2020 to approve the new 2015 International Wildland-Urban Interface Code (WUIC), making Austin the first major city in the state of Texas to adopt such a code; implementation is slated to begin on January 1, 2021.
The City can identify areas of wildfire vulnerability beyond just the structures that are adjacent to wildlands, but embers can travel up to a mile and a half from their point of origin. If the only folks who hardened their homes against wildfire were the ones who lived next to the woods or parks, a large wildfire would just skip over the street and burn down the rest of the neighborhood. The Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety recorded a fantastic case study where they engineered an ember storm in a controlled setting to test the resistance of home-building materials to a fire nearby, which supports the rationale for the WUIC.
