Finding the Right Master Planned Community in Austin

Are you looking for a new home in one of Austin’s many master-planned communities? As a Broker/REALTOR® and Owner of Goodwin & Goodwin Real Estate, I can help you find a home that’s best suited to your lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for quick access to riding stables, great golfing and tennis, or sipping wine on your patio, one of the following three communities may be right for you.

The Hills of Bear Creek

Want a competitively-priced home with contemporary style, easy access to Austin’s airport and stables close by? The Hills of Bear Creek could be the answer. You’ll find homes priced from $300K-$400K. Moreover, property taxes are lower than in Austin. This is an 85 home community built by Milestone. It’s located South of Austin in Manchaca, pronounced “man-shack” by locals. Manchaca is about 16 miles from downtown Austin and features great BBQ at Valentino’s.

The Enclave at Covered Bridge

If you’re looking for more of a luxury lifestyle experience and access to the Texas Hill Country, The Enclave at Covered Bridge could be a good choice. The community is located on 290 West which is just a few miles away from the Texas Hill Country. It’s about 25 minutes from downtown Austin. Homes generally start at $450K. I give a big thumbs-up to the builder (Brohn homes) for preserving 18 heritage trees. Additionally, Brohn endeavors to create great Hill Country views and support the natural surroundings.

Rough Hollow

Does a lake-living resort-lifestyle appeal to you? If so, the Rough Hollow Community on Lake Travis may be the answer. Rough Hollow is a large luxury community built along a cove of Lake Travis with six distinct sections. If you love being active, you’ll have lots of choices to do so here.  Highland Village is the community’s private yacht club, water park and more. Additionally, if you love sipping a glass of wine at sunset you’ll find wonderful vistas here. Rough Hollow also feeds into the award-winning Lake Travis School District. I am impressed with Brookfield Builder’s commitment to their core values of passion, integrity, and community which is the foundation for a great community.

In Conclusion: When working with me as your Broker/REALTOR®, you can expect me to listen carefully to your priorities and show you the best homes for your lifestyle so you can enjoy your home for years to come!  Want to see one of these communities or others? I’m ready to help you today!

Fabulous land and home in Saddletree Ranch, Dripping Springs

Dripping Springs is called Gateway to the Hill Country and is known for the supurb views and acreage homesites.  One of my favorite neighborhoods in Dripping Springs is Saddletree Ranch, located near Hamilton Pool Rd and RR12.  There are so many beautiful trees and great homes, one of which I showed just recently.  This home is reasonably priced at $270,000 and is on a beautiful 1.47 acre lot with a wet weather creek in back, and long distance views that can be enjoyed from the back patio.  I like the darker Llano stone on the exterior and the metal roof, as well as the rain water collection system.  The home has 4 bedrooms and 3 fulls bathrooms.  It was built in 2006.

5 acres, gorgeous oak trees, unique home in Dripping Springs!

I showed a property just outside of Austin, in Dripping Springs, just recently.  I was enchanted by the beautiful trees and the stacked stone wall in front of the home.  I knew this would be a home with character and intrigue, and I was right!  The stained and scored concrete floors are well done.  The kitchen is beautiful with a large island and a one-of-a-kind sink (the sink is fascinating, but does need to be refinished – I’m sure there’s a story behind it).  The sub-zero fridge has the panels that match the cabinets, which I like.  There is a nice open living area, with great windows looking out to the neighbor’s horse pasture (and horses).  If you are looking for acreage in a peaceful setting, this house may be right for you.  If not, perhaps another nearby Dripping Springs property will work.  To learn more about Dripping Springs and homes for sale there, just visit my website or call me.  Vikki Goodwin, Realtor, Homes ATX, 512-426-9090.
