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.

Rare Privacy in Newer Subdivision – 4309 Angelico in Sendero Springs

A home with privacy located in a newer subdivision is hard to find. Sure, you can get privacy on bigger lots in older neighborhoods. Sure, you can purchase a newer home in a newer neighborhood with neighbors to your left, right, and rear. Of course you can build a brand new home on a nice private lot, but that will cost you big money. 4309 Angelico has that rare combination of affordable privacy in a highly desirable and newer subdivision, Sendero Springs. In fact it is the only home in Sendero Springs that backs to a forest preserve and has a side yard big enough to feel like no one’s there. 4309 Angelico gives you privacy in a newer subdivision at an affordable price of $275,000.

This home sits on one of the most private lots in Sendero Springs.

With 3,099 sf, this house has plenty of space for 4 bedrooms, a media room, a dedicated office, a formal dining room, and two living rooms.   The media room is isolated on the west wing of the second floor so you can watch movies or play the drums as loud as you want.  It’s also great for a common game room or pool table with two big closets to store all the toys, games, and billiard equipment.  The dedicated office and french doors are perfect for working from home and keeping your work life separate from your home life.  The kitchen has been updated with silestone counters, stainless steel appliances, and wood laminate floors that spread to a breakfast area large enough to seat 6 comfortably.  The kitchen opens up to the living room, guaranteeing that you don’t miss any of the action.  The best feature, however, may be the main living room with vaulted ceilings, 6 large windows that provide natural light and unobstructed views to the greenbelt, and a warm fireplace  to get you through the winter months.  This type of living room with a view like this is normally found in homes priced well over $300,000.

Look straight out those windows and enter into your personal arboretum.

The back patio setting is a great place to star gaze in the cool night or watch the wind blow across the tree tops of the forest preserve.  The huge wood deck expands the width of the home and every seat is front row to the greenbelt.  Full irrigation of the yard and flower beds mean you can spend more time enjoying the view.  The big side yard gives you additional privacy and is easily accessible from the back yard.  It’s a very flexible space that can be used for throwing the football, baseball, or frisbee, playing soccer, hosting Easter egg hunts, a fantastic dog run, growing herbs and vegetables, placing a tool shed, etc.  It’s certainly a nice extra to have in a home where nothing else is needed.

Some things you don't get tired of - like a view full of trees and blue sky.

If you want to see this rare and beautiful home, give me a call or email to set an appointment.

Luxury Home in Round Rock – 3551 Alexandrite in Walsh Ranch

It’s not often you find a true luxury home in Round Rock for under $100/sf that also feeds into exemplary-rated Cactus Ranch ES and James Garland Walsh MS (schools independently rated by Texas Education Agency). It’s not often you find a home with a game room, home theater, formal dining, living room, and second living room for $365,000. It’s not often you find a floor plan with three secondary bedrooms on the second floor, and master bedroom with dedicated home office or study on the first floor. This is a rare find in the highly desired subdivision of Walsh Ranch and 3551 Alexandrite has all the updates and upgrades you’d expect in this neighborhood.

Picture perfect setting in Walsh Ranch.

A feeling of grandeur consumes you when you enter through the wood door with its custom glass and wrought iron work. Your eyes immediately look up to the soaring vaulted ceilings, just barely after getting a glimpse of the wood floors beneath you. The foyer insists you take a moment to appreciate the size of the front entry way. The second living room and formal dining room flank you and watch closely as you make your next move.

Foyer serves as an appetizer to the main house.

The impeccable kitchen is fit for a chef or a home maker.  Long stretches of granite, tiled back splash, and stainless steel appliances are pleasing to the eye and easy to clean.  The over-sized center island is more like The Big Island (instead of the standard Oahu-sized islands).  The big island provides for more counter space (to cook or to eat on) and more storage space underneath.  You’ll also notice a wood built-in bookcase for all your cook books and recipes.

With a kitchen this nice you'll want to eat in it, too.

After your gourmet meal, bring a bag of popcorn upstairs to enjoy a movie in your home theater.  Surround sound and plenty of room for theater-style seating, this is just like going to the movies on a Friday night except you don’t have to wait in line and no one will look at you funny if you’re in your pj’s.  Actually, as owner of the theater, you can do, wear, and watch whatever you want!

Be the boss of your own theater.

The one thing someone might have a problem with is the back yard.  It has a beautiful wood-stained deck, mature trees, plenty of green grass to run around in, and a rock wall for ultimate privacy.  However, it backs to a two-lane section of Sam Bass Road. This particular section is not heavily traveled and has a slow speed limit of 35 mph.  You don’t get fast moving vehicles or heavy-duty 18-wheelers and it’s impossible to hear any road noise from the interior of the home.  You’ll still be able to enjoy the occasional back yard barbecue  and clear starry nights with your friends and family.

Most people would love a back yard like this. Wouldn't you?

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!

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.

Great Value Home Back on Market – 30003 Bumble Bee

This home is back on the market!

Say hello to the best value in a home for sale in Georgetown, Texas. 30003 Bumble Bee is located in the Villages of Berry Creek where you can have the benefits of a golf course community at Berry Creek Country Club without paying the high HOA fees. The Berry Creek Golf course is just down the street from the Villages and it’s easy to rub some shoulders to get sponsored by a current member to play golf there. Avoid the high monthly fees and make some new friends! What better way to get welcomed into your new neighborhood!

If that’s not enough, your house will be one of a few on the end of a cul-de-sac. While your neighbors have cars commuting back and forth in front of their homes, you’ll have little kids riding bikes in front of yours. 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. Don’t forget about the seamless transition from the living room to the covered back patio with a huge back yard for the kids and dogs to run around in.

The feeling of freedom does not end there. 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.

1 of 3 Single-Story Homes with a Golf Course View – 1603 Greenside

Green may become your favorite color due to the golf course views spreading from left to right and beyond the horizon in front of you.  And the appropriately-named Greenside Drive won’t let you forget it.   1603 Greenside is home to Hole #1 at the Teravista Golf Course in Round Rock, Texas.  Only the beautiful wrought iron separates you from pure golf ecstasy and some of the best views when you’re not actually teeing off.

If you don't like green grass and blue skies, you're at the wrong home!

There are only 12 homes for sale that back to the golf course in Teravista, Round Rock.  Most of them are very large, 2-story homes.  In fact, 1603 Greenside is one of 3 homes for sale that is a single-story home, the only one that is under 2,000 sf, and, somehow, also priced the lowest at $225,000! This is the perfect combination for maintainable luxury.  You can enjoy all the benefits of the golf course views without worrying about high utility bills, cumbersome stairs, and rooms or square footage you’ll never use.  But make no mistake about it  – 1,849 sf is plenty of space for 4 bedrooms, formal dining, living, breakfast nook, big master bedroom and big kitchen complete with granite counters and bar.

Very big home without the usual and unnecessary high utility bills.

At night, witness the sun setting behind the fairways and the breeze rustling the tree tops in your yard while you sip your Arnold Palmer or green tea on the covered back patio.  You are protected from any type of weather, yet able to enjoy the best part of all – the sea of green grass that surrounds your home!

This home and back yard are the reason they named this street Greenside Drive.

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.
