Custom-built by Jack Hunnicutt on 2.5+ acres in the City of Georgetown.

Whether you were born in the city and a cowboy at heart, or born in the country and a city slicker at heart, 101 Rio Bravo is the best of both worlds. This Jack Hunicutt custom-built home sits perfectly on a parcel of land just under 3 acres and under 5 minutes to Wolf Ranch in the City of Georgetown! The convenience of this unique and rare property allows you to visit shops, restaurants, and retailers in the day, then come home in the early evening and enjoy the trees and the breeze on your back patio.

 

Longleaf pine wood floors from 100-year old reclaimed wood throughout.

Longleaf pine wood floors from 100-year old reclaimed wood throughout.

The flagstone walkway leads you to your home and the first thing you notice is the longleaf pine wood floors. Not only is it modern and refinished, it has a bit of history as well. The source for these longleaf pine wood floors comes from 100-year old reclaimed wood beams. You’ll be able to admire and admonish this historic wood in the entry, executive office, great room, dining room, and kitchen.

 

Bobby Flay would be proud of this kitchen.

Bobby Flay would be proud of this kitchen.

As you walk past the stone fireplace and hand-hewn wood mantle floating above it, you enter a kitchen that could double as a studio on Food Network: built-in sub-zero refrigerator and freezer, double convection ovens, gas cook top, prep sink and disposal on the island with double sink, disposal and trash compactor behind, walk-in pantry, and enough custom cabinets and pull-out drawers to make Giada jealous! This type of kitchen wouldn’t be complete without granite counter tops and a breakfast bar the length of a saloon in an old western – yeehaw! By the way, if there’s a shootout in this western, be sure to head for the walk-in pantry where the walls and ceiling are reinforced with concrete and wooden door reinforced with steel! This pantry could keep you safe through a tornado, seriously.

2,500 sf Stand-alone Workshop

2,500 sf Stand-alone Workshop

If the ~3,700 sf home isn’t enough for your belongings, head to the rear of the property where a 2,500 sf workshop awaits. This metal building has a double garage door and a 14-ft tall door to accommodate your RV or boat. You can fit 6 cars, power lawn equipment, an RV, a boat, or even a Jiffy Lube franchise! Need more space? This workshop has close to 700 sf of heated and cooled office space, a separate storage closet, and floored attic storage! This workshop gives other so-called man caves claustrophobia.

248 Whitney Woods – Preserve at Lake Georgetown – Hill Country Views

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

  • View Preserve at Lake Georgetown in a larger map

    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.

    • 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.

    kitchen-2 gameroom

    great-room-1 formal-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.  In fact, the last lot in Georgetown with a similar view was just purchased a month ago and construction has already began.  They will be your next door neighbors.  The home is competitively priced at $864,900.

The only home in Georgetown, Texas with a view of Village Park, the Hill Country and the Planet Mars

front-2

133 Village Park Drive in Georgetown Village

The neighborhood of Georgetown Village has a unique street that’s called Village Park Drive.  I know, because I live on it!  It’s the only street in Georgetown Village that is a one-way street.  It’s the only one that has a park that fronts it with a neighborhood park/playscape and a city-run heated swimming pool.  It’s also the closest park to the exemplary-rated Village Elementary school.

Well, now here’s something more unique then Village Park Drive:

133 Village Park Drive, the only home in Georgetown that has a view of this lovely park from the front and a nice view of the Texas Hill Country from the back:

But, here’s something else that this home has:  A perfect night-time panoramic view of the skies

observatory-telescope
This custom-built observatory has been crafted to very exacting standards so that the roof slides open and you have access to the skies above.  Imagine hanging out here with your children or grand-children on a cool summer evening looking at the constellations and gazing at the moon with a high-powered telescope.  This isn’t just an educational tool for astronomers, it’s a memory builder tool for families.  Not a fan of telescopes?  Simply turn this into a club house, or workshop complete with electricity.

The Preserve at Lake Georgetown: Family Camping Trips Within Walking Distance

This is from my HOMEOWNER TIMES real estate column:

preservemapCamping trips are fun: Start up the grill, turn off the slave-driving cell phone, listen to the sound of crickets at night and just relax with the family while munching on s’mores.  Most people associate camping trips with lots of preparation and driving time before you can actually enjoy those benefits, but not if you live in The Preserve at Lake Georgetown in Georgetown, Texas.  Any resident of this custom home neighborhood could just walk out their front door and be on a campground within a short 30 minute, 2 mile walk.  Imagine being able to escape from the office by simply stuffing your backpack with some food and a sleeping bag, grabbing the kids and a tent, and off you go to Russell Park, just two miles away.  Don’t like to walk?  Take the car and be there in 2 minutes.  Isn’t spontaneity great?

hdr_preserveThe Preserve at Lake Georgetown is tucked away in Northwest Georgetown and is bordered by the Whitney Conservation Preserve, allowing most homeowners to enjoy panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country and maintain complete protection from anything that might obstruct those views.  Do you remember the days when all the neighbors knew each other by name and enjoyed each others company?  That dynamic is hard to find in most of the mega-neighborhoods you see today with hundreds of homes lining the streets.  However, the developer of this community only platted seventeen 1+ acre lots, creating a sense of community and exclusivity that is rare in most neighborhoods.

preserve_lotsYou’ll find only custom-caliber homes in The Preserve at Lake Georgetown with a majority of them built by the developer, Steve Klein.  Steve Klein is an experienced builder that has the type of attention to detail that would make an engineer blush.  Whether it’s a custom library, home theater, wine cellar, or a gigantic playroom for kids, Steve Klein can integrate it into your dream home to fit your lifestyle.  Speaking of kids, this home is also located in one of the best elementary school districts in Georgetown.  Ford Elementary received an exemplary rating, the highest possible ranking, by the Texas Education Agency and it is located just 5 miles away.  Besides the school, an HEB grocery store and a host of other convenient shopping is available all within a short 10 minute commute.

The Preserve at Lake Georgetown lives up to it’s name: Located in an exclusive location within walking distance to Lake Georgetown and access to some of the best schools and shopping in Georgetown, it truly preserves the type of lifestyle most people only dream of.  Only 7 lots are remaining, so be sure to reserve a spot in the preserve as soon as you can!  For additional links, more information and pictures of this neighborhood, be sure to check out the Georgetown Texas real estate blog at:  www.GeorgetownCustomHomes.com/blog or become a fan on Facebook:  www.YourFavoriteHOMEboy.com.

Twin Creek Farms – One of Georgetown’s Finest Equestrian Communities

Do you like horses? Well, here’s the community for you!

Located in NE Georgetown, Texas, Twin Creek Farms is one of the finest custom home communities that caters to people who love horses. Don’t ride a horse, but love looking at them? Well, then you’re welcome here too! The community is beautiful enough that some people move here just for the peaceful, rolling terrain and classic look of white fencing that lines the lot of every home in the neighborhood. Unlike golf course communities, there aren’t any budget-breaking HOA fees here. Just around $55/month will give you the benefits of a community equestrian center, dedicated horse-riding trails and a lake full of fish.

Recently, one of the best lots in this neighborhood came up for sale. The owners decided to move to a different area and they want to sell this coveted piece of property to the next lucky buyer. What makes it so special? Well, for starters, it’s at the end of a culdesac. Which means no cars passing through and safer streets for the little ones. It’s also a large 4+ acre lot that is suitable for 2 horses. The lot is relatively flat and clear so it will keep your building costs down. The best feature of this lot, however, is that it backs to a gorgeous stream that you will have commanding views of from the back windows of your home. Imagine, resting out in the backyard to the sound of soothing water and gentle breezes. Yes, all of this for just $77,000. Where else will you find land this cheap? Let alone land on a premium location with a premium view! I just sold one of the last few lots available that back to a water-feature this past week in Georgetown, so if you’re looking for a unique lot, make sure you consider this in your purchase!

Check out the gallery below and feel free to drive by the lot:

$135,000 for 3Br/3Ba and over 2000 SF – Georgian Place in Georgetown Texas

Here’s what I think you’ll like about this home:

Backyard
– Home faces West, so the backyard is shaded in the evening and is the perfect environment for grilling and relaxing. The owners take advantage of where the sun is and have built a private garden on the side of the home next to the walking path. Rather then an ugly slab of concrete, the owners opted for a much more natural material, using gravel to form the surface of this patio. No large 2 story directly behind this home, for a much better sense of privacy.

Floorplan – The living room has soaring ceilings (at least 12 feet) and is ideal for furniture placement. Two bedrooms are on the first floor including the Master bedroom. This is convenient for guests or if the next buyer has a small child they want to keep close. This also give you the versatility of having elderly parents live with you and not have to climb stairs. There is a dedicated full bathroom for this second bedroom. The third bedroom is on the top floor and also has access to a full bath. This third bedroom is very large and can be considered a second Master bedroom.

Gameroom – This extra living space is critical to families these days who have such a wide variety of needs. This bonus room is so large you can split it up for multiple uses like the current owner has done. They use one half for a study and the other half for a hobby room. There is even a neat alcove that can be used as a child’s homework area, a TV nook or a small library.

Check out the pictures below and call me if you want to see this home for yourself. Perfect as an investment home or residence!
