Neighborhood Spotlight: Steiner Ranch

About 3,900 homes are found within the development called Steiner Ranch. It's located about 20 miles to the west of Austin, Texas in the Lake Travis area. This master-planned community provides plenty of beautiful views of both the water and the hill country. It's the perfect choice for those looking for land and water.


Steiner Ranch is responsible for some very fascinating history for the Lake Travis area. It all started with Buck Steiner in the early 1940s. He purchased the Steiner Ranch land for $25 per acre for a total of 2,700 acres. At the time, it was a cattle ranch passed down for many generations.

The late 1980s brought Al Hughes, a real estate developer to the area. He purchased the parcel of land and started to develop Steiner Ranch. The property moved from one developer to another due to ups and downs in the real estate market. Finally, it was completed by Taylor Morrison, including the final stages of commercial and residential construction.

Real Estate

The Steiner Ranch neighborhood includes more than just single family homes. It's also home to the Longhorn Village Retirement Community, many townhomes and even a few apartments. It's a community for just about anybody looking to live in the Lake Travis area.

With more than 35 smaller neighborhoods found within the community, there are plenty of areas to choose from. The newest homes are found further into the community (closer to Lake Austin). However, these are some newer homes under development near the entrance. Most of the homes in the area start around $250K and go up to more than $3 million.

Shopping and Dining

Found at the front of the neighborhood is the Quinlan Crossing Shopping Center. This center includes a few shopping and dining options, while more found inside the neighborhood at Vista Ride and at the Shops at Steiner Ranch. Some of the options found throughout include:

  • Randall’s Grocery Store
  • The Donut Hole
  • Hecho En Mexico
  • Cho Sushi
  • Cups & Cones
  • Lakeside Pizza & Grill
  • Zack's American Bistro
  • And More!


The students living within Steiner Ranch are served by Steiner Ranch, Laura Bush and River Ridge Elementary. After elementary school, they go to Canyon Ridge Middle and Vandegrift High School


Outdoor recreation is one of the main reasons people move to the Steiner Ranch area. The neighborhood provides community parks, recreation centers, swimming pools, basketball courts, tennis courts, soccer fields, football fields and playscapes throughout.

There's a Private Lake Club found on Lake Austin with a boat launch and docks for residents to use, as well. Residents also enjoy the 20 miles of private trails for hiking and biking, along with The University of Texas Golf and Tennis Club.

Living in Steiner Ranch provides access to plenty of great amenities, activities and a mixture of housing options. It's a very socially connected neighborhood with plenty for all to enjoy, no matter your age. If you’re looking for a community with something for everybody, Steiner Ranch is for you.
