Located in Crestview, one of Austin's iconic post-war neighborhoods, the Grover Ave Project reflects the best of what Austin has to offer. Incorporating modern and clean design while honoring the architectural style of a neighborhood is our philosophy at Smyth Homes. Each of the sun filled units offers large open great rooms with high ceilings and lots of light, 3 bedrooms, 2 and 1/2 baths and additional space for home office. The units are walking distance to the Crestview Market and Little Deli. Centrally located near Insterstate 35, MoPac Expressway, and US Highway 183, The Grover Ave project is just minutes from downtown Austin, the Capitol, University of Texas, Austin Community College's new Highland Campus, MetroRail's Crestview Station, and shopping at The Domain.
The site of Frank Richreek's dairy farm, Crestview was established in 1947 on the northern edge of Austin to accomodate the post war demand for affordable housing. Today Crestview is located at the geographic center of the greater Austin metro area and is one of Austin's best known central neighborhoods. Newcomers are attracted by the tight knit community thats a vibrant mix of young families and longtime residents, including many original owners. Laid back and friendly, residents can be found pushing strollers and walking dogs on streets lined with mature trees, pausing to chat with neighbors and admiring well-tended gardens. The friendly attitude is epitomized by the 120 ft “Wall of Welcome” mosaic mural on Woodrow, celebrating the history of the Crestview and Brentwood neighborhoods.
No discussion of Crestview would be complete without mention of the Crestview Shopping Center. Built in 1952 and located in the heart of the neighborhood, the center serves as the cultural gathering spot for residents. Anchored for 61 years by the family-owned Minimax IGA grocery store, the center is a time capsule that has endured and thrived because of strong community support.
