While it’s considered central today, the Crestview neighborhood was developed on the site of an old dairy farm by A.B. Beddow in the 1950s and early 1960s and has the feel of an early suburb. Crestview is bordered by West Anderson Lane to the north, Burnet Road to the west, Justin Lane to the south, and North Lamar Boulevard to the east.
Crestview is a fairly close-knit, solidly middle-class neighborhood fond of its longtime Austin businesses, such as the Minimax grocery store (recently sold) and Top Notch hamburgers. It’s located on a Metrorail stop and is surrounded by businesses just outside its mostly residential core.
The current average listing price for the neighborhood is $321 per square foot., but the individual listings which make up this average range from $206/square foot (1809 Morrow Street, a 1954 duplex on the market for $490,000) to $385 per square foot (1913 Mullen Avenue, an updated 1955 home asking $629,000).
