248 Whitney Woods – Lake Views and Conservation Preserve – One of a Kind Home

248 Whitney Woods Circle – The Preserve at Lake Georgetown

There are lots of homes in the $500k – $1 Million price range on the west side of Georgetown, Texas. However, every once in awhile, a home comes on the market that offers something truly unique. If you were to put together a wish list of features for a home of this caliber, it could look something like this:

  • Lot location – Professionally landscaped; Guaranteed to be no neighbors behind you; A premium view that can’t be duplicated.

This Tuscan-styled estate home was personally designed by the builder, Steve Klein. He hand-picked the best lot in the neighborhood to capture this coveted view of Lake Georgetown and the Texas Hill Country. If you have a teenager, keep them away from the sunset views, the views are liable to make them fall in love. If you’re married, it will be like therapy. These views convey with the home.

  • Neighborhood location – convenient to outdoor recreation, shopping, and the best schools; exclusive community
    • Home size – large enough to raise a family in without moving again, multiple living areas for various needs; luxurious in a subtle way, doesn’t make the guests feel uncomfortable.

The blue marker with the black dot in the middle of it represents the location for this neighborhood (click the map icons to show what they represent). It’s hard to believe that you could be in such a beautiful neighborhood on acreage, yet within a 5 mile radius of almost everything you need to survive: Exemplary Ford elementary school, HEB Grocery shopping, Scott and White Medical, and a host of other restaurants, retail and banks. What’s really unique is that the proximity to Lake Georgetown and Russell Park is only 2 miles away! You can read more about this unique neighborhood in my recent article on the Preserve at Lake Georgetown.

Many homes in this price range have 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. But in addition to that, this home also has a formal living area, dedicated formal dining room, upstairs Gameroom, private hobby room or playroom, separate air-conditioned storage space (Texas Basement), private home office and a workstation flex space between the kitchen and utility room that is perfect for doing homework or paying the bills. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have private access to the bathrooms. In fact, most of the rooms in this house share the same premium view of the Texas Hill Country out the back windows. One of the guest bathrooms downstairs has access from the garage and also the outdoors to be used as a future pool bath.

If you’re still reading this, and are a serious buyer in this market, stop what you are doing and see this home. There simply isn’t a home on the market with a premium view on almost 2 acres, proximity to Lake Georgetown, and over 4800 SF of luxurious living in this price range. The home is one of the most competitively priced in this market at $685,000.  The owner has gotten serious about selling this home and reduced it by almost $200,000 from it’s original list price.  This is not a casual asking price, and represents tremendous value for a Steve Klein custom-built home with this type of lot location.

Charles Maund Toyota – Used Car Sales Review

Austin Toyota Car Dealership Review – Charles Maund Toyota

Look what we have sitting in our garage:

That is our 2010 Toyota Prius.  Used, but new to us.

We just picked it up yesterday and are pretty happy with the car….the dealership? Well, that remains to be seen. You see, when my wife got home she realized they only gave us ONE KEY! I was pretty shocked, since I just dropped $19k on a car and would expect to have at least a key for myself.  Well, needless to say I called the dealership today and our sales guy, Chad, mentioned he would “talk to his manager” and try to work it out for me.

My other beef is their $150 detail job:

SERIOUSLY?!

The first picture is our missing cupholder from the center armrest.  It would have been nice for them to have placed one in there for us.

The second picture are crumbs from my kids when they were eating in the back seat during the test drive.  Or in other words, a strategic test to see if it would be cleaned up in the so-called “detail job” that would follow.  I can always count on my kids for crumbs.

The third picture is some nasty brown spots in the passenger side.  Wouldn’t a $150 detail job include shampooing the upholstery?

 

A bit disappointed, but I’m hoping they can fix this.  My follow up call is tomorrow, let’s see if they do the right thing….

…..(to be continued)
BTW, Here’s the car we replaced after getting “sandwiched” between two cars after being rear-ended. (bimmer, you will be missed):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jan 29th Update:

Well, after talking with Chris, he was able to get me the extra key and floormats that were promised.  However, this came at the expense of getting a real detailing job that involves *gasp* carpet cleaning!  So, I took the key and decided to have my friend help with the carpets.  Anyway, my experience is still such that I wouldn’t recommend them to anybody who is looking for excellent service.  Good price, yes, but just be careful and deal with Chris and not Chad.
