Anyone know much about this neighborhood or have an opinion? Spouse and I are thinking of moving here for the schools (Eanes). Thanks in advance.

We spent some time in Senna Hills this weekend, actually. I think it's a really nice neighborhood and for the Eanes school district, a good value. It will be close to that new Galleria going in. My only two quibbles with the area, and they're fairly minor ones - is that 1) it is technically in Westlake, but it's so far out on Bee Cave that it doesn't feel like Westlake to me and 2) some of the homes are really expensive and not situated on very large lots compared to other parts of Westlake. But, if large lot is not important to you, then not a big deal whatsoever!

I was also impressed with their neighborhood website, at www.sennahills.com - lots of good info, and I find those kind of sites always give a good view into what the community vibe is like.

Senna is a good neighborhood, if you like that sort of "plastic, cookie-cutter" look. The drive is a bit far out, but better than Lakeway or the 620/183 areas. The schools are superb.

The biggest downside for me would be the commute. The homes are very nice, but oddly enough, already somewhat outdated on the inside (lots of Corian counters, 1990ish floorplans and finishouts.)

The best affordable Eanes location, in my opinion, is Lost Creek. The location is absolutely the best. The problem is that most of the homes are older and have ghastly floorplans and decor. Most of the lots are not level either. But to me, the location makes those things easier to accept and live with.
