Are there any neighborhoods in the north austin area that are geared more for adults only living? I know that there is a DellWebb development but I'm too young to get in. I just moved here and it seems like most of the neighborhoods near Cedar Park/Avery Ranch area attracct more young people with small children. Don't take this the wrong way--I love kids but I love my peace and quiet more.

I think Del Webb is it. Or, I've never heard of any others. Most people who want peace and quiet move to acreage or something not in a planned community.

There are loads of kids in this area, so best not come here

But they don't make any noise - it's the grown adults in oversized trucks blasting out loud but desperately poor-taste-music that disturbs the peace.

You could buy into one of the garden home communities like these:

Ash Creek Homes - Austin area homebuilder for over 25 years

Ash Creek Homes - Austin area homebuilder for over 25 years

You aren't guaranteed to have no kids, but it is a lot less likely there will be loads of kids in these neighborhoods. Probably mostly empty nesters and singles and young couples with no kids.

Those are lovely - I had a client buy one, and he's very happy with it. Less "Hyde Park" and more "standard modern home" inside, but very nice.

There's also The Oaks at Wildwood (http://www.epconcommunities.com/CommunityLandingPage.aspx?object_id=118 - broken link), in Georgetown. Again, children can live there, but it might be what you're looking for.

Travis Heights actually has few kids. A friend grew up there and she said she was the only kid on her street. Maybe it's changed now, but I'd bet it's still fewer kids than average. Same would go for Tarrytown, Enfield, etc. I would think.
