The Sweetbriar neighborhood in Austin is located south of Town Lake and it’s bordered to the east by Interstate 35. This far south Austin neighborhood has a suburban feel to it with an Hispanic twist. A bit far from the center of the city, but close to some of the many amenities of south Austin, this is a great neighborhood for families who are looking for less expensive housing options. Most homes here were built in the 1970s, so it is an established neighborhood, but not an old one. The ranch-style homes are shaded by large trees, and most have sizable yards, making them particularly appealing to families with children.
