Shady Hollow vs Circle C? – There is really no wrong choice here, but I must admit I am a little biased—I have been a Shady Hollow resident for only 9 months and I am absolutely in love with the community.

To be fair, both subdivisions offer tremendous attributes and beautiful features that appeal to many, although the two areas are distinctly different. Both offer wonderful community opportunities in the Southwest area of Austin.

What are the differences of Shady Hollow vs Circle C?

Circle C is a master-planned community with many great things to offer such as amenities, exemplary-rated schools and shopping at the Escarpment Village Shopping Center. In addition there are exceptional restaurants nearby including Satellite Café, Mangieri’s Pizza Cafe, Santa Rita Tex-Mex Cantina South, Waterloo Ice House, etc…

There are many different areas of Circle offering both new construction homes as well as resale homes ranging from 1986-2010. The many greenbelts running through the area, the Veloway (a 3.1 mile biking and skating loop through the hill country) and a superlative community pool highlight suburban life in Circle C.

Shady Hollow is also an outstanding community that has a great deal of diversity in its sections, its population and its housing styles. There are many sections that have spectacular old-growth, large trees and somewhat of a tucked-away feel.

The parks are numerous and well-cared for by the Shady Hollow Homeowners Association. There is also a tremendous community pool at Capistrano Park that features many community events throughout the year…one of which is the year end Polar Bear Swim (not for the faint of heart). Many greenbelts and nature preserves weave a swath of natural hill country charm throughout Shady Hollow.

Shady Hollow vs Circle C – a difference in “feel”?

As opposed to the more cultivated feel of Circle C, a majority of Shady Hollow still feels like a small country town—many of the 1 acre lots in the Estates section are unencumbered by sidewalks or street lamps.

In the areas of Shady Hollow proper (Shady Hollow HOA), the tax rates are also substantially lower at a median of 1.89%–a tremendous savings on your monthly payment.

Shady Hollow also offers exemplary schools inside the community, led by the award-winning Baranoff Elementary.

There are a ton of wonderful food and grocery options that have taken hold in the last few years. Outstanding restaurants such as Galaxy Cafe, Maudie’s La Hacienda and Brick Oven highlight the dining options in a very hip area off of Brodie.

Shady Hollow Country-Feel





One of the absolute best things about Shady Hollow is the warmth of the community itself—relaxed and secluded. With only one major road running through its center, this community of 2200 homes (including the Villages of Shady Hollow) has a sense of small town Texas. Its nature preserves, its strong sense of community pride and just a hint of country modesty determines my clear winner of the Shady Hollow vs Circle C battle .
