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.

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.

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.

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 home is built by David-Weekly and has 3 bedrooms/2 baths all on one level.  The owners are meticulously clean and the trees and flowers on this property will make the next owner look like a landscaping champ.  This home has approx. 2000 SF and is priced at $210,000.

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.
