Welcome to Avery Ranch. Welcome to my neighborhood. I’m Eric Peterson, Broker and owner of Kopa Real Estate and Avery Ranch homeowner since 2007. Today I wanted to talk with you about the top 10 reasons I love living in Avery Ranch.
1. Avery Ranch Community Pool
With 6 pools in the neighborhood living in Avery Ranch is like being on vacation every day. Residents can use any of the pool areas no matter which section of the neighborhood you live in. The pool at the Main Amenity Center is a great place to hang out with friends and family. Residents can rent the pavilion or community center for parties, or just pack a cooler and enjoy the day. One of the great things about Avery Ranch is the neighborhood Avery Ranch Redfish swim team. Kids in the neighborhood are eligible to tryout to be a Redfish member. When you enter Avery Ranch you will likely notice many cars have been painted with Redfish logos showing our community spirit.
2. Avery Ranch July 3rd Fireworks Show
It’s easy to get to know your neighbors with all the community social events including the Annual 3rd of July Fireworks Show. Thousands of people come from around the area to see this popular event sponsored by the Avery Ranch Homeowners Association.
3. Avery Ranch Golf Club
Avery Ranch Golf Club is the premier daily fee golf course in the Austin area. The Golf Club does have different membership levels although you don’t need to be a member of the golf club to play, anyone can use the course and pay per round. One of the best values I’ve found is there membership to use the driving range so I can practice more often.
4. The Best Pizza in Austin
I’m from New York and grew up eating some of the best pizza in the world made by 2 brothers from the Bronx, NY so trust me when I say, Brooklyn Heights Pizzeria in Avery Ranch makes the best pizza in the Austin area. One of our favorite things to do is ride our bikes over to Brooklyn Heights for happy hour. Eat some pizza and watch a game on one of their big screen TV’s. Get there early if you want to take advantage of their half off bottles of wine all day on Wednesdays.
5. Playgrounds, Parks and Basketball Courts
Deciding to move to Avery Ranch is a slam-dunk! There are playgrounds, pools and basketball courts throughout the neighborhood. The Main Amenity Center located at 14100 Morgan Creek Dr features a playground, a Junior Olympic size pool, 5 lighted tennis courts, a sand volleyball court and a full size basketball court to hoop it up. Residents of Avery Ranch are active people and you will see many of your neighbors taking advantage of the amenities in the neighborhood.
6. Coffee Shop Right in the Avery Ranch
Summer Moon coffee shop in Avery Ranch is a great place to meet friends and enjoy some of their famous “Moon Milk.” We often meet with clients at Summer Moon and we also enjoy their outdoor seating so we can bring our Golden Retrievers to take a break when we are out for a walk. When you see us there be sure to stop and say “Hi.”
7. Brushy Creek Hike and Bike Trail
Avery Ranch is adjacent to the Brushy Creek Regional Trail with over 10 miles of hike and bike trails. Trailheads throughout the community provide easy access to the trail by bike or by foot. In addition there are miles of challenging off trail tracks for mountain biking.
You will feel the neighborhood love getting exercise on one of the 5 lighted tennis courts in Avery Ranch. The tennis courts are located at the Main Amenity Center and can be reserved in advance. Join the Avery Ranch Tennis Club that includes lessons, leagues and camps for youth and adult residents.
10. Convenient Location
With a convenient location in northwest Austin Avery Ranch is close to major highways, shopping and excellent employers.
