Dawson is the more laid back subdivision of the highly sought after 78704 district. Known more for their neighborhood dive bars and modest homes, Dawson is a quiet neighborhood in an urban environment. St Edwards University brings a youthful energy and quirky vibe to this older community. Homes in this area are usually less expensive than properties north of Oltof in Bouldin, Zilker and Travis Heights. Property type varies between condo communities, bungalows, million dollar homes and multifamily. It’s hip without trying too hard, which is why young professionals, empty nesters and small families buy and rent in Dawson.
