Hello all. I'm looking to move to the Cedar Park area. Does anyone know anything about Coventry Crossing? The houses there are pretty cheap compared to the rest of the area. Is this an "undesirable" place to live? Anyone know about the demographics, etc. of the neighborhood? Also, I'm going to be working right off of 183 in North Austin. Any info about the commute time or routes to take? Thanks!

Coventry Crossing is right on the edge of the Cedar Park/Leander border. It's kind of a fringe community with really nice neighborhoods nearby and not so nice neighborhoods nearby as well. My husband has shown a lot of homes in that neighborhood and all of his clients like the homes but have not been 100% sure about some of the neighboring areas and have therefore gone to other areas of Cedar Park.

But, it's all a personal feel. You should check the crime websites to get an idea of what the crime levels are really like in comparison to any other areas you might be looking at. Good luck!

Cedar Park and Leander are fast growing cities that are improving as they grow. They have new landscaping and sign ordinances for businesses, lot size and masonry requirements for new construction, and are adding sidewalks. What this will do to older neighborhoods, I don't know but the area is definately not going to get worse. In Leander, some of them are being torn down for commercial growth. (A Leander city councilman got the new ordinances passed partly by saying, "We don't want 183 to look like Burnet Road." )

Thanks for the info so far. Are there any other neighborhoods that are comparable in price that would be considered on the better side of Cedar Park? I'm looking for under $200k for at least 2,000 sq ft and a decent-sized yard. I can't stand being totally on top of my neighbors. Some houses in Coventry Crossing for 2500 sq ft are selling for $140,000-$160,000. They were built around 2000. Also any commuting time replies to the original post would be appreciated. Thanks!

We live out in Leander (renting) right now and will be buy next year sometime and I have drven through CCrossing but the area does not seem bad at all. Now the houses themselves could be of better quailty I think but I am sure you can find the right one for you.

Try Cypress Bend, Ranch at Cypress Creek, Anderson Mill West....all of these areas are near the Cedar Park High School Area. My husband works near the Domain area and it takes him about 20-25 minutes in the morning and about 25-30 in the afternoon.

Default Coventry Crossing Not Desirable

I am a current resident in coventry crossing. The neighborhood is on the trashy side. You cannot drive down the street with two cars able to pass each other at the same time due to everyone parking their cars on the street instead of in their driveways. There are people out all hours of the night just seemingly standing around like you might expect at a corner store in the ghetto. No one ever seems to really be doing anything but hanging out in the street. In the two years we have been here no neighbors have made any attempt to be friendly or introduce themselves to us, despite our going over to each neighbor directly on our sides when moving in. In fact one of our neighbors who has a driveway more than capable of supporting the number of vehicles belonging to the residents of his address, has made a regular parking spot for one of his vehicles at the very end and edge of our driveway that makes getting our vehicles which we also have three of and fit all of into our much smaller driveway, extremely difficult to back out with risk of hitting his vehicle parked in the street/end of our drive. There is apparently and HOA, but instead of being concerned about the issues that actual lend to the unsavory nature of the neighborhood that give it the less the desirable classing it has, they are more concerned on what you have hanging in your window. You can't drive down the street without having to pull over and let oncoming vehicles pass in any break you get between cars parked on the street but that's not a violation of HOA rules. However my very small window unit in my bedroom window that gets full sunlight all day and the least flow from the central air, is a major concern to the HOA. Yes my window unit is what is trashing up this place. It has nothing to do with the hoodlums on the street standing next to their cars also parked there in the street just hanging out. When I first moved in there was a lady who would flag every passing car down and beg them for money, cigarettes, and even convinced my elderly mother to give her a ride to the store one time where she then followed my mom around trying to convince her to buy her various items. Nothing was done about that, it went on daily and nightly, all hours of the night and morning, and no one seemed to care. However if you are unfortunate as me to live here, and have the hot room in your home, your window unit simply will not fly. Find a better neighborhood to live in. There are so many more suitable subdivisions just off the very same street without the unsavory appeal that coventry crossing has. And a note to any member of the HOA who may stumble upon this post, seriously, you guys need to get your priorities in order. What's more important, my comfort in the summer, or the safety of your fellow neighbors, and their right to be free to pass easily down the street without fear of being harassed or colliding with another vehicle. I would like to say what HOA should stand for, but that would violate the rules to posting here. I have nothing nice to say about the neighborhood or neighbors, but I've kept my opinion within the guidelines listed. I know how important rules are to the members of the HOA are here.

Default Parking problems

we have the same problem in colony park. Are there legal ways to stop the street parking if you have no HOA?

I'd be surprised if an HOA could outright stop it either. If it is public street and not otherwise marked, parking on in is legal.

I second this. We did a lot of house hunting and settled on this area. Might be hard to find under $200k now though.
