“Rosedale is located just north of downtown and people really enjoy this area because of its close proximity to downtown and the Domain. Downtown Austin has a lot to offer. So it’s really nice that Rosedale sits right in between downtown and the domain and those are the two biggest areas where people commute to work. Rosedale has a lot of charm, many of the homes were built in the 50s and 60s so you’ll see a lot of one-story homes with really mature trees in the neighborhood. Many of the homes have been remodeled or updated, and they have revitalized a lot of old shopping centers into areas with new restaurants and good local hotspots.” –Redfin Market Manager Lauren Johnson
