As an increasingly hip and growing city, Austin is becoming home to quite a few celebrities. While some celebrities appear in Austin for a low-key getaway or a film shoot, many are stars who were born in Austin and relocate back or love the city so much that they purchase a luxury home here.
Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong discovered the beauty of residing in a beautiful Austin abode.
Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong is one of Austin’s prized residents. The professional cyclist and cancer survivor owns a home in Austin and a ranch in the Hill Country. Armstrong’s cancer-fighting organization, The Lance Armstrong Foundation, is also based in Austin.
It’s not unusual to see Matthew McConaughey around Austin. He was born in Uvalde, Texas. He attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He has been a die-hard Longhorn football fan ever since; he is often spotted at the games either in the skyboxes or on the sidelines. McConaughey has a home in Austin and is good pals with pro cyclist Lance Armstrong. They are sometimes spotted around town together.
Austin, Texas offers celebrities a lifestyle that most towns lack as it merges the beauty of rural life and the energy of urban life, yet in a way that residents live in the impression of an exotic vacation gateway. Celebrities enjoy the gorgeous views of the lakes and the comfort of their luxury Austin homes.
Here, celebrities don’t have to worry about their privacy as luxury living communities in Austin ensure residents and guests that the prying eyes of the paparazzi stay away from them (hey guys, do worry about the dweeb in the tree with the Nikon). For instance, Villas on Travis feature three gated entrances and private security personnel that monitor these gates and the Lake Travis community 24 hours a day.
Celebrities opt to live in Austin because, unlike some other popular cities celebrities reside, Austin isn’t seen as being so uncouth as to have “tours” of the houses where celebrities live. Austinites are proud that their celebrities feel they can be themselves without being “property” for fans.
Celebrities here find they don’t necessarily have to have their personal security team escort them around if they want to go out on the town unaccosted. (hey Matt, no booby-signings here…)
