The Barrington Oaks neighborhood in Northwest Austin is projected to be one of the hottest residential real estate markets in 2014, according to Seattle-based Redfin


Barrington Oaks — located south of U.S. 183 between Oak Knoll Drive and Spicewood Springs Road — is projected as the sixth-hottest market in the country based on sales data, Web views and agent observations.
