About Our Neighborhood
Located one mile northwest of the intersection of Capital of Texas Highway and RM 2222, Jester is a quiet community atop a ridge in the scenic Texas hill country. Bordered on three sides by the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve, access is limited to three entrances. This comfortable family neighborhood features large homes with prices beginning at $500K. Many homes feature panoramic views.
The two shopping centers at the RM 2222 entrance include restaurants, a convenience store, a dry cleaner, a beauty salon, a child care facility and healthcare offices, and retail shops.
Jester is convenient to a multitude of high tech firms along the Capital of Texas Highway and to all areas of Austin. The State Capital, the University of Texas, the Arboretum and Domain shopping areas, downtown Austin, and lakes Travis, Austin, and Lady Bird are all within a dozen miles of Jester.
Jester is the City of Austin's second Green Neighborhood. Situated in the environmentally sensitive Northern Edwards Aquifer recharge zone and straddling both the Bull and West Bull Creek watersheds, Jester homeowners took up the Challenge to help protect and preserve the waterways. Jester also has several award-winning green gardens and ponds in the neighborhood.
