Clarksville is the epitome of front porch living. This quiet community is more like a charming small town than an urban neighborhood. Throughout Clarksville there are several buildings, parks, and homes paying tribute to its historic roots. In fact, Clarksville is the oldest surviving freedomtown west of the Mississippi River. It’s a mix of modern new construction with impeccable landscaping, 1930s and 40’s craftsman style houses, multifamily and low-rise apartments. Clarksville is a highly desirable neighborhood because of its walkability and close proximity to downtown and Lake Austin. There is little turnover, making real estate prices for renters and buyers one of the most expensive in the city.
