Lake Buchanan Real Estate

The largest lake of the Highland Lakes is Lake Buchanan. It is about 5 miles wide at its widest spot and 30 miles long. It has 124 miles of beautiful granite gravel shores and has a privately-owned lighthouse near the dam that can be seen on Hwy 29 on the south end of the lake. Surrounded by panoramic views of The Texas Hill Country, it is hard to beat the stunning scenery and relaxing atmosphere of the communities surrounding Lake Buchanan.

Three communities sit by Lake Buchanan. Six miles south is Kingsland, to the west is Llano and Burnet is 5 miles east of the lake. There are many businesses along the lake for shopping, dining and recreation and if it cannot be found along the shoreline, a short drive to one of these three neighboring communities will usually address the needs of lake residents.
