Kingsland and Lake LBJ Including Granite Shoals, Sunrise Beach, Highland Haven, Wilderness Cove and Shady Acres
The physical beauty of Texas Hill Country cannot be adequately described, it must be experienced. Rolling hills, lush foliage, colorful spring blooms and glassy waterways create a refreshing backdrop for many wonderful residential communities. Kingsland is one such community. Located within Llano County on the shores of Lake LBJ (for Lyndon B. Johnson), Kingsland is half retirement community and half tourist destination. Both crowds are drawn to Kingsland for similar reasons: the year-round climate is mild, the landscapes are stunning and the activities are plentiful.
Kingsland weather is largely without extremes. Throughout the year, average temperatures rarely get cooler than 40 degrees or warmer than 80 degrees. This moderate weather is a perfect partner to the natural terrain. Year round, residents and visitors can explore the limestone peaks and valleys peppered with established oak and juniper trees. A round of golf at the Legends on Lake LBJ course or Packsaddle Golf Course is a popular means of enjoying the natural surroundings.
Lake LBJ is a popular recreation destination as well, used for water sports and camping, hiking and hunting. The lake links Kingsland to several other charming waterfront communities including Horseshoe Bay, Highland Haven, Granite Shoals, Sunrise Beach, Deer Haven and Blue Lake.
Kingsland is roughly 65 miles northwest of Austin and 85 miles north of San Antonio. Real estate options consist of single-family homes and land for custom building.
Highland Haven was originally a subdivision that grew into a small city over time. Highland Haven is also located along Lake LBJ and is just north of Granite Shoals. Another city that developed from a subdivision, Granite Shoals is a slightly larger city in comparison to Highland Haven. Granite Shoals is a resort and retirement community, and is sometimes referred to as "The City of Parks" because of its 19 city parks, eight of which have boat launch ramps. The majority of real estate in Granite Shoals is privately owned by its residents.
