121 Silverstone – A Tree-Filled Lot That Would Make Zilker Park Proud

Have you ever walked into a beautiful custom built home only to step out to the back and see nothing custom about it?  Maybe you’ll see green grass extending from the covered patio and you’ll see an uninspiring fence that tells you and your neighbor how close you can get to their house without trespassing.  It’s almost as if the builder spent 99% of his time and resources on the house and 1% to fill in the back, then turns to you and says, “Here’s your amazing home, the rest is up to you.”  Some people may like that kind of home, but if you enjoy any amount of fresh air, you’re going to want more out of the back than just grass and fence.  Luckily, there are custom built homes in Georgetown for sale that do not neglect the very reason it sits on one of the biggest lots in the neighborhood (over 1.75 acres).  Welcome to 121 Silverstone, located in the highly desirable Westlake of the Woods in Georgetown, where a professionally landscaped yard matches the details and quality of a custom built home.

07 Front

All this land up front still allows plenty of landscaping in the back of this custom home.

Despite the tremendous amount of time, effort, and money spent on the landscaping, there is a separate feature that acts as the primary focal point to everything and that is the swimming pool.  A custom pool designed and built by Optima Pools is where it all begins.  Complete with waterfalls, ambient lighting, and a radius wall formed of Texas limestone, this can be seen from the portrait windows in the living room, but more importantly  hidden from the road and curious neighbors.  The mesa pearl surface sparkles in the sun and flows from a depth of 3 feet to 7 feet making it appropriate for all ages.  There is even a seated area for those who like to just dip your feet in the pool.

01 Pool

Custom built swimming pool filled with 17,000 gallons of privacy.

02 Pool

Hard to believe this privacy exists on a corner lot, but it does thanks to the extra acreage.

03 Pool

Don’t feel like getting wait? There’s more than one way to enjoy a swimming pool here.

Surrounding the custom pool is the professional landscaping strategically placed to maximize beauty and privacy.  With most of the trees and plants being native to Texas, they are highly drought resistant and require very little watering apart from the natural rain fall.  So don’t worry about high water bills or constant maintenance, it’s been taken care of for you. River rocks and large stones have been brought in to direct water drainage around the home and also provide a nice dry creek in the summer.

33 Back

The dry creek wraps around the rear of the home complimenting the native plants.

05 Patio

Extra wide covered patio gives you more great ways to enjoy the park-like view.

Let’s not forget the 3,233 sf of premium living space. Three secondary bedrooms share two full bathrooms, perfect for most families’ needs.  One of these bedrooms can be easily used as a home office.  The flex or game room is smartly located near the bedrooms to keep noise away from the master bedroom late at night or early in the morning.  An upgraded kitchen has an island consisting of a large granite slab that is open to the living room and breakfast area.  The portrait windows not only provide great views, but enormous amounts of natural light.  The formal dining room is just a few steps away from the double ovens making it easy to entertain during the holidays and a spacious master suite sits on the other side of the home for maximum privacy.  A semi circle pass through for visitors, an extra long driveway, and a three car garage make great space of this over-sized corner lot.

09 Living

Custom touches from wood floors to built-ins to crown molding.

12 Kitchen

This kitchen will make you look forward to prepping, cooking, and cleaning.

21 Game Room

Large flex room for the entire family.

Offered at $549,000, this home exemplifies what a custom built home in Georgetown should be.  More importantly is the location, as it leads to exemplary-rated Georgetown ISD schools.  See below for more pictures and information.  If you’d like to schedule a private showing of this home, just fill in your contact info at the top right.

2725 County Road 248 – A Little Piece of Hill Country

Welcome to your own 2-acre piece of Texas Hill Country! You’ll need more space and foliage than this to fire off your guns, but at least you’ve got room for your horses, chickens, and other animals you want to keep. Best of all, the price is under six figures and you’re 15 minutes from the newest HEB in town.

Welcome home to the hill country!

2725 County Road 248 is priced at $90,000. Sitting near the middle of this flat land is a manufactured home built in the late ’90s that has been very well-maintained by a loving (and growing) family. Three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a kitchen that opens to the living room are laid out nicely in 1,120 sf. Walls have been re-painted, carpets have been steam cleaned, and all the major components (HVAC, septic, roof) are doing great! Consider this a move-in ready home that even comes with refrigerator, washer, and dryer each under 5 years old and zero signs of problems.

Big, country kitchen.

However, the exterior is where I think this home shines. The covered front porch is laid with concrete and is as wide as the home itself. It’s perfectly suited for enjoying your book or beverage while watching your children play near the trees or playscape in the fenced-in front yard. The front yard also wraps around to the enormous side deck. The side deck is partially covered making it an ideal spot for romantic “under the night sky filled with bright stars and moonlight” meals and desserts.

Huge covered porch is a great place to spend your day or night.

Lastly, the property is income-producing. There is a commercial sign that sits on the far corner of the property earning $35/month. It may not sound like much, but for a home like this, that’s like getting free electricity every month. Not many properties can claim that without the use of expensive and headache-filled solar panels.

Two acres allows for privacy even without many large trees.
