Welcome to Westlake

Known for its palatial homes and gorgeous scenery, this city is a well-established enclave for luxury living.
Certified as a gold-standard scenic city, Westlake is flush with stunning vistas and sprawling natural beauty. A merging of golden prairies and verdant Cross Timbers woodland makes for an unforgettable landscape, outdone only by the sheer opulence of the city’s many lavish residential estates.
The area was settled in the mid-19th century and wasn’t incorporated until the 1950s. Incredibly high-end and loaded with exclusive neighborhoods, Westlake is also populated with country clubs and their associated communities. Among some of the most enviable communities, Vaquero Club stands out for its remarkable private golf course, designed by famed architect Tom Fazio. Other neighborhoods on the rise include Entrada at Westlake, whose layout and architecture was designed after a picturesque Catalonian village in Spain.
Lavish estate properties are the standard in Westlake, often either tucked away on lush plots with ample acreage or ensconced in private, gated neighborhoods. Architectural designs are highly varied and yet consistently reflect the sophistication and affluence of their owners. Large lots are readily available for those looking to customize their own paradise home, and discerning buyers won’t want to miss out on new-builds and up-and-coming luxury neighborhoods on the rise.

Local Lifestyle

Bucolic, peaceful, and undeniably prosperous, Westlake is a paragon of elevated luxury living. Its residents are typically treated to a wide variety of neighborhood amenities — from the heightened security of a guard-gated community entrance to the on-site dining and resort-style facilities available to those at clubs like Vaquero.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

Though Westlake itself is primarily residential, it’s conveniently located adjacent to the intersection of Texas 144 and US 377 and the retail and dining haven of Roanoke. Residents are minutes from foodie-approved restaurants and adorable boutiques along the commercial corridor of Oak Street, where the cuisine is internationally inspired, and the shops specialize in everything from the latest in women’s fashion to antiques and seasonal goods.
Among the must-try eateries right next to Westlake are venues like Craft & Vine, whose casually elegant atmosphere is the perfect setting to enjoy their menu of upscale gastropub cuisine. Craving dinner and a show? The Cinemark Roanoke is next door to restaurants like The Brass Tap, a must-try venue that has an incredible assortment of craft beverages and often hosts live music performances.
Fashionistas with a penchant for all things luxury will find themselves just 30 minutes north of destinations like Highland Park Village, the airy outdoor shopping and dining center that boasts dozens of high-end brands such as Valentino, Hermès, Chanel, Fendi, and Alexander McQueen.

Things to Do

There is an abundance of options for outdoor recreation within and around Westlake, due in part to the city’s proximity to Lake Grapevine and the presence of Vaquero Country Club. Green spaces such as Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve as well as Meadowmere Park offer up a myriad of amenities, including miles of hiking trails, playgrounds, sports fields, watersports, fishing spots, and wildlife watching opportunities. Meadowmere Park also houses the state’s largest floating aqua course, the WhoaZone.
For slightly more sophisticated entertainment within the bounds of Westlake, there’s the Vaquero Country Club. More than just its 500-plus acres of gorgeous ranch land, the community is also its own source of entertainment. The Tom Fazio-designed golf course is as playable as it is lovely, and the community’s clubhouse brags a top-notch fitness center, swimming pool, dining, and spa facility.
