Stunning, granite cliffs and miles of blue water characterize the peninsula of the growing community of Granite Shoals.
Located seven miles west of Marble Falls on constant-level Lake LBJ,
this is a diverse community, with million-dollar vacation homes popping
up beside LBJ-era lake houses.
The town motto is "The City of Parks," with its 18 parks providing boating, fishing and picnicking.
Nearly 25 percent of the city is on Lake LBJ shoreline, creating breathtaking lake views throughout the community.
It's across the lake from Sunrise Beach and Horseshoe Bay and fronts FM
1431 for an hour-long trip with easy access into the City of Austin.
Word is out about this picturesque community, and appreciation rates
have risen 9.59 percent within the last five years, according to one
real estate research report.
