Located between Highway 290 to the north, East 51st Street to the south, Northeast Drive to the east, and Interstate 35 to the west, it is conveniently located in the central east part of the city. Adjacent to the University Hills subdivision, the two areas share many similarities such as winding, tree shaded streets, ranch style homes and a popularity with first time buyers who are attracted to the spacious yards and proximity to inner city living.

Windsor Park History
Developed from 1954 to 1968, Windsor Park is one of Austin’s earlier planned communities. The streets wind irregularly through the sloping hills and have a decidedly English flavor to their names: Ravensdale, Westminster, Dorchester, Brunswick, Wellington, Darlington, Trafalgar and Suffolk to name a few. The area encompasses over 2.5 square miles and the median age of the population is around 30 years old for both men and women.
