The Preserve at Lake Georgetown: Family Camping Trips Within Walking Distance

This is from my HOMEOWNER TIMES real estate column:

preservemapCamping trips are fun: Start up the grill, turn off the slave-driving cell phone, listen to the sound of crickets at night and just relax with the family while munching on s’mores.  Most people associate camping trips with lots of preparation and driving time before you can actually enjoy those benefits, but not if you live in The Preserve at Lake Georgetown in Georgetown, Texas.  Any resident of this custom home neighborhood could just walk out their front door and be on a campground within a short 30 minute, 2 mile walk.  Imagine being able to escape from the office by simply stuffing your backpack with some food and a sleeping bag, grabbing the kids and a tent, and off you go to Russell Park, just two miles away.  Don’t like to walk?  Take the car and be there in 2 minutes.  Isn’t spontaneity great?

hdr_preserveThe Preserve at Lake Georgetown is tucked away in Northwest Georgetown and is bordered by the Whitney Conservation Preserve, allowing most homeowners to enjoy panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country and maintain complete protection from anything that might obstruct those views.  Do you remember the days when all the neighbors knew each other by name and enjoyed each others company?  That dynamic is hard to find in most of the mega-neighborhoods you see today with hundreds of homes lining the streets.  However, the developer of this community only platted seventeen 1+ acre lots, creating a sense of community and exclusivity that is rare in most neighborhoods.

preserve_lotsYou’ll find only custom-caliber homes in The Preserve at Lake Georgetown with a majority of them built by the developer, Steve Klein.  Steve Klein is an experienced builder that has the type of attention to detail that would make an engineer blush.  Whether it’s a custom library, home theater, wine cellar, or a gigantic playroom for kids, Steve Klein can integrate it into your dream home to fit your lifestyle.  Speaking of kids, this home is also located in one of the best elementary school districts in Georgetown.  Ford Elementary received an exemplary rating, the highest possible ranking, by the Texas Education Agency and it is located just 5 miles away.  Besides the school, an HEB grocery store and a host of other convenient shopping is available all within a short 10 minute commute.

The Preserve at Lake Georgetown lives up to it’s name: Located in an exclusive location within walking distance to Lake Georgetown and access to some of the best schools and shopping in Georgetown, it truly preserves the type of lifestyle most people only dream of.  Only 7 lots are remaining, so be sure to reserve a spot in the preserve as soon as you can!  For additional links, more information and pictures of this neighborhood, be sure to check out the Georgetown Texas real estate blog at:  www.GeorgetownCustomHomes.com/blog or become a fan on Facebook:  www.YourFavoriteHOMEboy.com.

Premium School District without Premium Price Tag: Terraces of Woodlake in Georgetown, Texas

Ford Elementary School district is one of the most desirable in Georgetown, Texas because of its exemplary rating. Desireable, yes. Affordable? Not really.

Consider that the average price of all the homes on the market today, that feed into this school district, is just over $400,000 with an average of $143/SF. Let me introduce to you a home that breaks the trend:  4900 Woodstock Drive

4900 Woodstock is your economic stimulus home. Not only is this home one of the best values on the market today, it’s also a rare opportunity to send your kid to this exclusive elementary school for just $165,000 (~$89/SF). Here’s the best part: This home is also located closer to Ford Elementary School then most of the other homes that cost at least 3x more. You can walk to this school and not cross any major roads. In fact, you can also walk to HEB, a couple of restaurants, the UPS store, a nail store, Blockbuster and more!  That puts new meaning to “Green Home.”  Let your friends brag about their new hybrid…you get the luxury of never even having to start a car to do your errands!  The location of this home is unprecedented and the value is unmatched.
