Bluff Views in Georgetown – River Ridge Subdivision

Welcome to the ultimate property for river, hill country, and treetop views in Georgetown.  Located in the heart of the River Ridge subdivision, 308 South Ridge Circle is home to rare, breathtaking bluff views of the San Gabriel River and the trees on its banks.  This home was designed to enjoy the maximum benefits of these views as evidenced by the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and breakfast area, the massive outdoor deck, and the private balcony off the master bedroom from the second floor!

You can see for miles and miles.

Sometimes the view is not enough, and you have to see nature up close and personal.  With almost one acre of land, the property line goes all the way down to a creek, which you can follow to the San Gabriel River.  A lot of adventurous hiking will be involved, so if you aren’t an outdoor person, feel free to set up camp on the deck while the grill cooks dinner.  If it’s the right weather, you can also relax by the fire pit on a starry night.

Your personal observatory also serves as a wood deck by day.

If all you want is the enjoyment of the view and the comforts of your home, this home can do that, too!  The living room has hand-scraped hardwood floors, stone fireplace, and a wet bar to go along with four tall windows extending from the floor to the ceiling.  The breakfast area has its own large windows in similar length so you won’t miss a thing while you’re eating.  Even the door leading to the rear deck has a tall glass window pane to see out of.  All the windows are equipped with sunshades to reduce heat and glare while still maximizing the views.  Lastly, the open floor plan allows these views to be seen unobstructed from the kitchen.

No window treatments needed in this room.

Other features of this home include sitting area and second fireplace in master bedroom, remodeled master bathroom, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, double oven, built-in wine rack, breakfast bar, tile floors, outdoor fire pit, and hundreds of healthy, mature trees in the front and back.

Just the right amount of trees in front for curb appeal and shade.

Picture Perfect Elegance – 235 Westbury

235 Westbury is a prime example of privacy and exclusivity.

235 Westbury is offered at $275,000 ($87/sf) and that price buys you 3,167 sf made up of 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a formal dining, a dedicated office, a second living room or game room, a big open kitchen, a breakfast area, and a 3-car garage.  In case you missed it, this home has 3.5 bathrooms.  Having that extra full bathroom is going to make a world of difference for you and your household.  Just imagine 3 bedrooms sharing only one bathroom and you will realize it is a supreme luxury to have that extra full bathroom.  The home could be updated with granite counters, but you will already have one of the nicest, most exclusive, and private homes in Georgetown Village.

How's this for relaxation?

If you want privacy, 235 Westbury has it on the inside and outside. The bedrooms are designed for ultimate privacy with the master on the first floor (i.e., away from the secondary bedrooms). The 3 bedrooms on the second floor are separated by a long hallway, and Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Each bedroom offers unique architectural design and zero shared walls between them. The game room may not be enclosed, but it’s hidden from view from the first floor and is tucked away nicely for video games and movies. If you’re thinking about working from home, the over-sized in-home office is separate from the main living room on the first floor with nice french doors for, you guessed it, more privacy.

Master has been re-painted to more neutral color.

The backyard is equipped with an extra high fence line installed and mature trees to block out any unwanted eyes into your yard. The corner lot, detached garage, and rear alley serve as additional barriers for backyard privacy and guarantee you’ll have a shared fence with only one neighbor at most.

With this home, privacy doesn't cost you an arm and a leg.

In terms of exclusivity, this is the only home in Georgetown Village on the market today with a 3-car garage and 3 or more bathrooms. In the last 12 months, only 5 homes out of 66 possible homes on the market had this combination – less than 8% of the homes! That number has gone down even further in the last 6 months – 2 homes out of 46 possible – less than 4.5% of the homes! If you need a third full bathroom, this will be a rare opportunity to have one in Georgetown Village. If you need the third garage , it might be a good idea to schedule an appointment to see this home. If you need both, start signing some papers!

You might feel like a trained chef in this kitchen.

In addition to the privacy and exclusivity, 235 Westbury has features that make it stand out even further. The living room has a beautiful and unique architectural design with three huge windows towards the landscaped backyard. The hardwood floors complement the wood beams on the ceiling and the banisters, which overlook from the second floor. The entire room is lit up by natural light and is open to the kitchen and breakfast area. In the kitchen, you’ll find a gas cook top on the island with lots of counter space and storage. The windows continue into these rooms as well giving the first floor a consistent and continuous level of natural brightness. The covered patio is big enough for barbecues and cool enough for the hot summers. The red brick road to the detached garage gives it a nice touch of home (think Wizard of Oz). And if the storage from the 3-car garage isn’t enough, there are three huge walk-in attic spaces accessible from the second floor that would love to hold your boxes for you until you need them again.

You won't find another living room like this one.

Super Value for Investor or First Time Homebuyer – 1019 Leeds Castle in Georgian Place

Tired of getting outbid on all those foreclosure properties?  Wasting too much time waiting for a short sale to close?  If you’re looking for a great deal, then 1019 Leeds Castle Walk at $115,000 ($47/sf) is one of the cheapest properties around and the best thing about it – it is not a distress sale.  No waiting + no bidding = high chance of purchasing with a 30-day close.

1019 Leeds Castle is 2,427 sf with 3 bedrooms (best bang for the buck as an investor) and 3 full bathrooms (perfect for homeowners who have frequent overnight guests, kids, or roommates).  The living room is open and has high ceilings so it’s great for large gatherings.  If you need something more private, the upstairs game room is even bigger and tucked away.

You’ll want to replace the carpet and put a fresh coat of paint on the walls before moving in, but that’s already accounted for in the low price.  That’s a positive because you get to choose the type of floor and color of paint.  The other positive is that it would cost about $5,000 to have it done professionally, but the seller decided to knock off $10,000 instead.  Meaning you could purchase this home, replace the carpet, paint the walls, and probably sell this for $125,000.

See below for more information, pictures, and video.  Act quickly!  This will not last long so give your Realtor a call to see it or contact me directly if you don’t already have one.

All the Amenities, None of the Restrictions – 100 Woodcrest in North Lake

If you like being outside, this is the home for you.

Ever imagine what it would be like to grill a burger or sunbathe by the swimming pool without a nosy neighbor looking in? 100 Woodcrest is a 1600-sf 3-bedroom home for sale in Georgetown, Texas (offered at $250,000), located in the heavily wooded subdivision of North Lake.  This property provides perfect privacy on 2.5+ acres with Mr. and Mrs. Wooded Lot to the left, Mr. and Mrs. Greenbelt to the right, and Mr. and Mrs. Your Own Private Park to the rear.  Although the interior has been recently updated by the current owner, the true appreciation of this home starts from the outside.

No nosy neighbors peeking into your pool.

The back patio is the perfect place to hang out, have a drink, and enjoy nature without any neighbors in sight.  With natural cover from the trees, it’s only a few paces to the private swimming pool.  The swimming pool has a personal gazebo and is fenced with white pickets for beauty and safety.  If you’re a “hands on” person, head straight to the workshop just past the grilling and smoking station on your right.  The workshop is perfect to store your power tools, lawn equipment, pool accessories, and boxes of old photo albums.  It also has plenty of cabinets and peg boards for neat organization.  Who says a workshop has to be messy?  The greenhouse is conveniently joined to the workshop.  No need to lug a bag of garden tools.  Grab what you need, do your gardening, and neatly place the tool back where it belongs without breaking a sweat!  You could enjoy the entire day on the patio, in the pool, in the workshop, or in the greenhouse, and not have a single complaint.  Except that you would’ve missed out on horseback riding.

Great place to hide and protect your tools.

There is a 3-stall horse barn located on the west side of the property.  It’s construction out of metal and wood are built for durability and versatility – you can convert any or all of the horse stalls to an open gym, chicken coup, boat house, or RV garage complete with its own driveway. Currently the horses have their own ramp to the paddock for water and hay.  The paddock opens up to the pasture in the rear of the property for daily grazing.  The paddock and entire  pasture have been fenced off so there is no worry of horses galloping away, or unwanted animals entering your property.  The pasture can also be converted (mowed) to your own personal park.  Just be sure to watch your step if you’ve had horses back there!

Horse shoe rack to remind you that this is for horses.

It is rare to find a property with all these amenities in Georgetown without tight HOA restrictions.  Even in North Lake, other homes may have a pool, or barn, or workshop, or acreage, or privacy, or lots of mature trees, but no other home in North Lake gives you all of these amenities at once, except 100 Woodcrest, making this a true one-of-a-kind property.

There's even more green in the back.

Upgrades and Value in the Same Home – 2409 Edgecliff

Never judge a book by its cover. In this case, never judge the upgrades of a home by its price tag.

This is no ordinary home hiding behind the trees.

From any standpoint, 2409 Edgecliff is a value purchase for a first-time home buyer, investor, or homeowner wanting to move up or down. Priced at $160,000 and with 2,381 sf to work with ($67/sf), 2409 Edgecliff is the lowest priced home on the market in the Summer Crest (or Summercrest) neighborhood in Georgetown. Throw in all the upgrades that the home is secretly hiding on the inside, and you’re creating instant equity at closing. The owner spared no expense when it came to upgrading his primary residence. In total, he spent close to $40,000 in upgrades!

This patio feels like an extension of the home itself.

One of the more obvious upgrades is the ceramic tile flooring. This beautiful, natural tile isn’t like most tiles. Ceramic tiles are forged from rich, hearty clay and kiln-fired for strength, durability, beauty, and uniqueness. You’ll easily notice the ceramic tiles in the dining room, living room, and hallways. It continues when you walk out the back door to the expanded, covered rear patio, which give it a remarkably unique, one-of-a-kind look and feel. The covered patio is further protected with an aluminum awning sure to make your rainy nights more enjoyable as you sip your hot cup of tea to the calming sound of rain against a metal roof. The kitchen has been updated with granite counters, tile back splash, and new sink. Hard water is no longer an issue with a new water softener system. Your yards are huge, green, and lush thanks to a professional landscaping re-do in the front and back yards, including full, automatic sprinkler system. Foam insulation keeps the utility costs low and the temperatures comfortable. These are some of the major upgrades you won’t find in your neighbor’s home – not for this price anyway.

This type of back yard can only be attained by a professional.

And let’s not forget about the neighborhood. In the past 6 months in Summer Crest, 11 homes have sold with 1 home pending (2 homes/month). Currently there are only 2 homes for sale, which means Summer Crest is in high demand and 2409 Edgecliff will not last more than 30 days!

One thing to note: some buyers are looking for first floor bedrooms. In this home, all the bedrooms are on the second floor, including a master bedroom twice the size of others. This allows for more efficient use of space on the first floor, including a second dining area that can easily be used as a home office. Lastly, there is no separate shower from the tub in the master bathroom. If you’re okay with not wiping off dust from your seldom-used bath tub every week, then this is the right home for you!

Here’s an opportunity to buy in an exclusive neighborhood with homes that can cost almost twice as much!  In fact, this is probably one of the smallest custom home neighborhoods in the Ford Elementary school district with a location this close to Lake Georgetown.

If we get the listing, stay tuned for more details….

 

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.

whitney-woods-front whitney-woods-view

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.

great-room-1formal-living

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.

This home is back on the market!

Be careful – they’re friendly and just might ring your doorbell to ask if you and your kids want to play with them!

Lastly, and certainly not least, open the front door to your new home and experience one of the most open floor plans you’ve ever been in. The entrance hallway leads you right into the middle of all the action in the living room. Entertain your exclusive cul-de-sac neighbors and have the freedom of not wishing your house was just a bit bigger. The living room is open to the kitchen with plenty of space for a large informal dining table.

This large 2500-plus square foot home has 4 large bedrooms and a large community game room in the center for all the late night games and movies you’ll experience with your family. And if you’re worn out from the games, don’t worry about cleaning up the same night. It’s all on the second floor and none of your distinguished cul-de-sac neighbors will ever see the mess!

A Big Home with a Small Footprint – 133 Fairfield Built by Green Builders

133 Fairfield Court was built in 2007 by Green Builders, Inc. A few of the money-saving features include a tankless water heater, spray foam insulation, and energy star appliances.  As an example of the potential savings, this 2,192-sf eco-friendly home has a 2011 average electric bill of $65/month!  Considering the excessive heat wave that Austin just experienced, that is a significant savings compared to other homes without spray foam insulation.  Most “traditional” homes could have bills 2-3 times this amount and every $50/month in savings is equal to another $10,000 in your loan amount.  Consider this: You can buy an inferior home for the same amount of money, but if you consider the true cost of ownership and factor in your low utility bills, you will  end up paying less monthly for a better home!  Prove it to me you say?  Well, here’s an example from Edward, who also lives in a Green Builder home.  Click this link to read the article on his experience.

Other green features include low VOC paint, varnish, and adhesives, upgraded recycled carpet, stainless Tresca countertops, drought-resistant landscaping, rain water collection system, and Low-E windows.  This is a rare find as Green Builders no longer builds in Georgetown Village.  133 Fairfield allows you to enjoy the benefits of enormous eco-saving efforts in this home, and save money on utility bills!

Rare Green Builders home with 24/7 views of the park.

Not only can your wallet feel good about this home, so can your eyes as you look out your window to a beautifully treed park across the street.  Georgetown Village is filled with hike and bike trails, trees, and benches, but not every home has one within ten steps of their front door.  In fact, only nine other homes on Fairfield Court share this park.  It’s no wonder that out of nine total real estate transactions on this street, eight of the homes averaged under 60 days on the market!  This is a great opportunity to own a home in Georgetown Village that is green for the environment and faces a park – a rare combination!

From your door to this trail in under 10 seconds!

The 2,192-sf home boasts a huge kitchen and living area, three big bedrooms with walk-in closets, a separate game room, detached garage, ample back yard space, front row seats to the park, and a 400-sf space above the garage that can be finished out to meet any of your needs – 4th bedroom or guest accommodations, executive suite or office, media room or home theater, game room or play room, heated and cooled storage, etc.  The huge space makes this home a perfect fit for any buyer.  Finishing out this space can add instant equity to your home!

Uncage your creative self with 400 sf of workable space!

This home is not just designed to save you energy, but also time.  If you have a load of laundry sitting in your master bedroom closet, simply open up the “secret” door that leads to the laundry room and dump it in the washing machine!  These type of features are normally seen in custom homes that cost three times as much!

For a reduced price of $211,900, you get panoramic park views, an energy-saving home, and a space above the garage that can be easily expanded for an extra 400 sf of living space.

Own 1 of 21 Homes Facing Summers Green Park – 122 Summers Green

122 Summers Green is 1 of 21 homes that faces the lush and green Summers Green Park in Georgetown Village. In fact, 122 Summers Green is the only home for sale on this street, meaning there are no other homes for sale that faces Summers Green Park. In the past 3 years, only 3 homes have sold on this street because no one wants to sell their park-facing home!  [By the way, Mars Hill Realty Group was involved in all 3 of those transactions.] The number “21” tells you how big Summers Green Park really is. Imagine 21 large homes and put them side by side in a circle and that’s the size of Summers Green Park.  Let me tell you there is plenty of room to share it with 20 other homeowners in this exclusive part of Georgetown Village. Listed at $183,000 it’s also the lowest price on this street since 2005! Finally, here’s a chance to own a piece of the pie (or park) that is so hard to get.

Windows - the more the merrier when you're facing a park like Summers Green.

The location of this home is great for the park view and it’s also within walking distance to the Village Elementary School and community swimming pool.  Like any other home that faces a green park, this home has a covered front porch to enjoy the views and the weather in the morning, afternoon, or evening.  The 2,189 sf home is big enough to hold 3 bedrooms, a living room with fire place and vaulted ceilings, two dining rooms (a formal and breakfast), and a centralized kitchen great for dinner guests.  In addition to the spacious interior, the back has features other homes on this street do not have: a huge back yard with extended roof to cover the concrete slab.  The yard already contains a gardening area, towering trees, and still has room for a pool to complete the package.

See below for pictures, video, and information regarding 122 Summers Green.  Please contact Edwin @ Mars Hill Realty if you’d like to schedule an appointment.
