Rosedale is the perfect combination of rustic and convenient, with peaceful air and a tightly-knit community. The neighborhood is nothing short of historic either.
What we call Rosedale today, was once the property of the Ramsay Family, who purchased much of the land at the beginning of the 20th Century for a nursery and arboretum. Today, there are many old trees that decorate the historic streets of Rosedale. Ramsay Park, with swimming pools, green spaces and picnic areas, still contains ash trees that were originally planted by the Ramsays, over a hundred years ago.
A lot of the homes in the area were built during the 1930’s and 1940’s, and now feature an older allure. On the other hand, the countless new custom home builder projects and renovations offer the neighborhood a refreshing and young taste. And that’s because the population of Rosedale consists of a wonderful mix of young families, single professionals, and generations of owners passing on the stories to their kids.
There’s so many things you can do in Rosedale. The neighborhood is close-knit and everyone plays an active role in maintaining the authentic historic feel of the neighborhood. Residents have access to major parks that have pools, playgrounds, tennis courts and athletic fields. The 1200+ homes built in the area are within walking distance of a wide variety of business and medical facilities, including the Seton Hospital and the Heart Hospital.
Families with kids love Rosedale because it is a particularly safe neighborhood, with 40% less crime than the rest of Austin. And that peace of mind is matched by the high-standard schools, like The Liberal Arts and Science Academy High School that ranks as the number one public high school in Texas! With all this in mind, it’s clear to see why residents love the Rosedale neighborhood, situated halfway between historic and modern.
