Rim Rock Neighborhood ♦ Features

Rim Rock's "Away-from-it-all" Southwest Austin Location

One view of the Rim Rock neighborhood southwest of Austin.Rim Rock is designed to provide homeowners with the peaceful experience of living out in the Central Texas Hill Country. It is located just 19 miles from Downtown Austin via FM-1826. From Rim Rock, you can get to all things Austin and Central Texas with little trouble (depending on traffic, of course!). Rim Rock is a nice alternative for families who want to live in the county, but on larger lots than are available in subdivisions like BelterraHighpointe and Meridian (neighborhood links at the top of the page.).

All Rim Rock homes are built on lots a minimum of 1 acre in size. The largest lot available in the original section in April 2009 was just over 3 acres. Some lots have Hill Country views and back up to green areas.

Rim Rock Taxes and Utilities

Tax rates in Rim Rock, like those in many outlying residential developments, are higher than in Austin, for example. Why? Though there are no city taxes, the water service is provided through the Greenhawe WCID (water control and improvement district). Taxes from this WCID brought the total tax rate to near $3.04/$100 in property value in 2012. Other tax entities include the school district and Hays County.

All of the homes in Rimrock have septic systems. Electricity is provided by Pedernales Electric.
