The western suburbs of Austin have a feeling that could be described by some as ultra safe for long stretches, upscale, somewhat new, scenic, hills with views of a city, possibly sterile, peaceful/isolated from the city but not far from it, among other traits.

Southern California and the east side of Seattle feel similar in some ways. Any other places that come to mind?

I presume you're thinking of places like this.

There are lots of places like that elsewhere in the US, with only the vegetation differing.

Kansas City
Spokane
Bay Area, CA
Tons of stuff like that in Southern CA

Then, of course, there are places such as:

Sedona
^ Now THAT is a cool setting to live in! However, I don't think I wanna know how much those houses are.
Prescott
Some areas east of Sacramento look like they have a similar vibe
Areas around Salt Lake
I once stayed in Boise for a few days, mostly around downtown and suburban Eagle. That whole place looks like it would fit your bill. Lot of areas like this.
Around Denver and Colorado Springs you'll get lots of stuff like this.
Albuquerque

Basically, anywhere in the western US you'll find stuff similar to that.

There are plenty of large-scale new areas around Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro/Winston-Salem and some other areas of the southeast. But many of those don't have lots of hills. North of Atlanta and Winston-Salem do have some OK hills.

Florida has NO hills. Don't know why you mentioned it.

Virginia has some hills, but you'd have to go to a smaller city like Roanoke, and the really new areas aren't going to be as big and widespread as in a place like Austin.

A suburb like this would fit what you are referring to: http://www.city-data.com/forum/387362-post11.html

So like the most boring place imaginable?

Rochester Hills, Michigan
Riverton, Utah
Santa Clarita, California

Pick a metro, and I assure you there is a soulless suburb which matches this type of community.
