Georgetown Texas homes for sale in Wood Ranch

Ok, so it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. Even though the real estate market is suppossed to be slow, I’ve been pretty busy actually…and forgot about my first love: Blogging.

So here is the follow-up to my previous post on this listing in Wood Ranch.

1. First, the neighborhood:

Wood Ranch is located close to Interstate 35, so it has the convenience factor nailed. In just a few minutes you can be off and on your way in 30 minutes North or South to Ft. Hood/Killeen/Temple or Round Rock/Austin for work. See my most recent post about how easy the commute is to Temple, Killeen and Ft. Hood from Georgetown. You can also hop onto Hwy 29 and go west and hit Cedar Park/Leander within minutes.

Shopping is very convenient. For groceries, you just go North on DB Wood to the nearest HEB or you can take Hwy 29E and take Wolf Ranch Parkway North to go to Wal Mart. Wolf Ranch Shopping Center is located at the SW corner of Hwy 29 and I35. Bottom Line: Getting your shopping done is a breeze from this location!

All of the homes in Wood Ranch are custom-built which leads us to the second point.

2. The builder:

Choosing a builder in Georgetown, Texas is not the easiest thing to do. Some builders have great reputations, and then the next day you hear they’re bankrupt. Other builders may have no reputation at all, unless you’ve lived in Georgetown for the past 20 years and grew up with them. The builder of this home is Ed Wohlrab. Ed has been established in Georgetown for over 10 years and was one of the original builders for one of Georgetown’s most respected custom home communities, River Chase. Ed is known for building homes around unique and challenging environments. You can get a good idea of this on his most current homes he is building by driving around in The Falls of San Gabriel. Ed Wohlrab must have had fun with this home. He built if far off the road to give it tons of privacy and most of what you see from the front porch is just rows of trees. He positioned the home just perfect so you also have a generous backyard. Privacy in the front, privacy in the back. Perfectly achieved!

3. The home:

The home is built so that the bedrooms and living areas are larger then what you see in most homes. He kept the floorplan simple and uncluttered with lots of hallways and nooks and crannies. Just large bedrooms and living spaces that flow into each other very intuitively. Pictures speak louder than words, so this is the part of the post where I can show off my camera skills:

  1. This is the type of home (lot) that Wendy and I are looking for. What is the price range on such a beautiful home?

    • Levar, these homes end up in the hi $200K – low $300K range, which is what this sold for. When you get back from deployment or when your wife wants to take a look, we can see others like this. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Awesome! So the bottom line is once we have our home built, we can tailor the design to stay under the $275K mark, for example.

    • Well, not exactly….having a home built and buying a home are two very different things. Especially when it comes to cost. You would not be able to have Ed Wohlrab build this home again on a 1 acre lot at that price today. Are you definite about building a home or is that just an option you’re leaving open? For the best value in today’s market, I would suggest trying to find a home that is already built, unless your needs are very personalized and a custom home is the only option. If you take this particular home, for example, the floorplan here is very common and you’ll find resales with this type of floorplan all day.

  3. Great. We will more than likely purchase a home that’s already built as long as it has some versatility and flexibility. We are looking for a home that has character already with some of the things that we’d more than likely purchase eventually. We have some time especially with this Iraq deployment coming up. I am certainly going to stay in touch with you as I’ve learned that deployments go by pretty fast.

    • Yep, they go by faster when you stay busy too:)

      Speaking from personal experience!

      Saudi Arabia – 2000 – stayed busy going to the pool, eating great air force cafeteria food and working out
      Kosovo – 2001 – stayed busy doing real “mission” work
      Iraq – 2003 – stayed busy studying for my real estate license
