River Chase 1+ Acre Lots: Close-in to everything, easy to build on.

river-chase-signHere’s your chance to snag up two lots in River Chase for $75,000 a piece in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Georgetown, Texas.

What makes River Chase so popular is the convenience factor.  This is probably the closest custom home neighborhood to I35, the southern entrance to River Chase is about 1 mile away from the access road.  Yet, due to it’s hilly topography, you can barely hear any road noise from within the neighborhood.  Wait a second, aren’t hilly lots tough to build on?  Good question..

123 River Chase and 412 Mason Ranch are prime lots for this neighborhood because even though the neighborhood is hilly, these two are relatively flat and easy to build on.  That means the next buyer can spend less money on the concrete slab and pocket the savings.  Here are some approximations of the size for these lots below.  Everything in River Chase is at least 1 acre in size:

412 Mason Ranch: Notice how the owner purchased the lot that is almost entirely surrounded by trees!  It is conveniently located closest to the northern entrance of River Chase, meaning easier access and hardly any neighbors on all sides of you.

123 River Chase: This lot is a designer’s dream.  The unique shape allows it to take full advantage of the hill country views to the North and there are no shortage of mature oak trees.  In fact, this lot IS owned by a designer and a full set of plans custom-designed for this lot can be made available to the next buyer.123-river-chase

Mayfield Ranch Home: High-end pool with landscaping to match

Trying to find a home with an in-ground pool in the heat of Texas summer is like the holy grail for real estate shoppers. To get a recently built home, with mature landscaping, and over 2700 SF (according to tax records) at $275,000 is nearly impossible.

Until now. Let me tell you about 3644 Fossilwood Way located in Mayfield Ranch in Round Rock, Texas:

1.  There are many homes that try to “squeeze” into this price range by offering a pool, but skimping on the landscaping.  From the moment you drive up to this home, your eyes will be immediately drawn to the meticulously chosen native plants that line the front yard in a very natural setting.  This landscaping design not only minimizes the amount of yard that needs to be cut, but also the owner’s water usage.  Landscaping involves more than just well-chosen plants, but also good utility of stones, rocks and pathways that wind through the yard.  This home also has a beautiful walkway made of flagstone laid on top of crushed granite that connects the front and back yard.

2.  If you’re a shopper in this price range, something else you’ll notice different about this home is that it’s only built in 2004 and it’s a relatively new home that has been well taken care of.  What that means to you is that you don’t have to buy a home, and already start planning for your next renovation project.  The floorplan is very modern and all the spaces are well-proportioned and the flooring and paint upgrades have been well chosen.

3.  This isn’t an ordinary pool that was picked out from a catalog and just plopped in the yard!  In fact, the owners had it custom designed for the backyard and you will have a view of this pool from almost every room in the home:  Living, Kitchen, Breakfast, Gameroom and two bedrooms.

When you step out here, your first inclination may be to jump in the pool, so let me point out a few things that this pool may distract you from.  The deepest point is in the middle of the pool and it’s shallow on both ends…this is perfect for a game of water volleyball.  If you have young children or just want to wade in the pool and relax with a good book, there is also a sun ledge, an ultra-shallow wading area.  This pool can be for fun as well as exercise or therapy.  If you want to do laps, you can do that too by just turning on the swim jet and swimming against the current.  After spending hours in the pool, it’s nice to know that your largest organ, your skin, didn’t just absorb lots of unhealthy chlorine.  That’s right, this is a salt water pool, which results in minimal maintenance costs and leaves swimmers with skin and hair softer then when they came into the pool.  Say “good-bye” to smelly chlorine that lingers on your body after you swim.

This home is the entertainer’s dream: A high-end pool set in a natural surrounding with an outdoor kitchen to handle all your grilling needs.  This home isn’t too old, where renovations and updates are in order…on the other hand, the home has upgraded window treatments, flooring and paint to give it a very modern and cozy feel for the next homeowner.

Eagle Ridge – In the heart of hip Round Rock Shopping and world-class Medical facilities

North East Round Rock has developed into quite the trendy place. It’s one of those places you can go back to several times during the week and never get bored.

The Lifestyle

For example, sometimes my wife and I will take the kids to the Round Rock Premium Outlets and do some light shopping and let the frontkids blow off some energy. If it’s really hot outside, we might visit any number of large indoor stores in the Ikea shopping plaza like JC Penny or try out one of the many restaurants that keep popping up there every couple of months. It’s also a great place to meet up with other families. A couple of times, we’ve chatted the night away with friends as our kids would chase each other in the gated playscape in front of Mighty Fine Burgers.

The beauty of living in the Eagle Ridge neighborhood is that you have extremely convenient access to this type of lifestyle. This neighborhood isn’t just 2 miles from the Round Rock Outlets and Ikea shopping plaza, but also two great medical developments by Seton and Scott & White, as well as Texas State University.

The Home

backyardRecently, a large single-story home became available in Eagle Ridge on 3613 Eagles Nest. It’s the type of home that you can move right into, without having to worry about paint, landscaping and window treatments.  The home is just over 2100 SF and has 3 bedrooms with a study and formal dining room.  There are two things that you’ll really love about this home.  The first is the family-swallowing kitchen: When you first walk in, you’ll notice there is a large skylight that floods this room with plenty of natural light.  All great cooks know that adequate lighting is needed to prepare and cook meals optimally and there certainly won’t be any shortage of light in this kitchen! There are also stainless steel appliances from high-end manufacturers, like Kitchen Aid, that the owners have installed to update this kitchen.  The second is the well-landscaped, private backyard with covered patio: If you’ve ever bought a new home before, you know the anguish of planting skinny little trees and waiting for years before they are even large enough to provide shade for your 5 year old.  You probably have to live in the home for 5-7 years before your trees give you the privacy that you want to enjoy and then it’s time to move again.  Well, you won’t have that problem with this home.  Everything is mature and manicured, waiting for the next homeowner to enjoy.
