119 Hickory – Wonderful Weekley-Built Home with 3-Car Garage in Georgetown Village

01 Front

The blue home that makes you smile.

The Georgetown Village neighborhood has become sort of an icon of Georgetown.  How do I know that?  Because Austin agents are beginning to show this neighborhood to their clients.  A couple years ago, you had to bribe an Austin agent with free food to drive past Round Rock!  I’m not offering free food, but we are offering a stunning example of a David Weekley home built in 1999 (you know, the good ‘ole days when builders earned their reputation and stood out from the rest with attention to detail and exceptional quality).  This 1936-sf home has been meticulously cared for by a loving family for the past two years and now here’s a chance for someone else to add their personal touch to it.

02 Front

Like the porch, the swinging bench is an extension of the home – try it out!

119 Hickory was painted sky blue by David Weekley.  His affection for colors is one of his signatures.  With coordinating dark blue shutters and popping white trim and columns, this home stands out among traditional homes.  The “blue home,” as it is affectionately known to its neighbors,welcomes you with a large inviting porch.  Inside the foyer, your eyes will immediately look up at the vaulted ceilings and crown moulding.  It will also be hard not to notice the front dining room (easily transformed into an in-home office) to the side and the beautiful living room staring in front of you.  The living room and kitchen compete for your attention.  The living room tempts you with warm wood laminate floors, an unobstructed view to the back yard, and soaring ceilings above.  The kitchen is full of shiny toys like a 5-burner range/oven combo, an equally expensive two-tier dishwasher, a large bottom-freezer refrigerator, and matching microwave and faucet fixture with updated recessed lighting above.

05 Living

There is a term that describes what you see: Great Room

08 Kitchen

Updated appliances you’ll find in much more expensive homes.

09 Kitchen

Countertops and cabinets galore meeting right up to the stainless steel refrigerator (it stays!).

The cozy second floor has three bedrooms with high ceilings.  This keeps the second floor remarkably cool even in the summer.  Each bedroom is very large with large bathrooms and lots of storage.  The extra play area upstairs can be left to your imagination, but here are a few ideas that it can be used for – home work, reading, board games, or video games.

23 Game

Have extra space and don’t know what to do with it? Houzz and Pinterest are good starts.

24 Ceiling

View from the top.

The lot has its perks as well.  An extra wide lot may not seem like a big deal, but the owners have found great use for it.  The side yard has been blocked off for private garden use.  Expand on this idea, turn it into a dog run, place a tool shed here, or take down the fence and add it back to the back yard.  The builder also chose this specific home to build a 3-car tandem garage due to the extra large lot.  You won’t find many homes with a 3-car garage in this neighborhood and none in this price range!  Truly a valuable space for organizing tools, storing a recreational vehicle, or housing a long-term project. 119 Hickory is priced at $212,000.  For a private showing or more information, feel free to contact me here.

131 Green Grove – Private Pool in Your Backyard

08 Front

Just wait ’til you see the rest of it.

If you could go back in time when Georgetown Village was first developed and have the very first pick out of every lot available to build your perfect dream house, 131 Green Grove would get the nod.  The combination of the following lot features is almost impossible to find in any other home in this wonderful neighborhood:

  • Backs to greenbelt
  • On a cul-de-sac/circle street with no through traffic
  • Faces an amazing park
  • Wide lot size to accommodate swimming pool and large yard
  • Deep lot size to provide an extra long driveway and additional parking spaces
  • Privacy from side neighbors due to mature trees and lot angle
  • Near the back of the neighborhood and away from heavily trafficked roads leading to and within the neighborhood
01 Pool

This can be you all summer long.

02 Pool

The stone patio can accommodate a lot of pool-loving family and friends.

10 View

Green views surround the front and rear of this beautiful home.

 Fortunately for us, the house that sits on the lot is just as rare and desirable.  One of the largest homes in Georgetown Village at 3,574 sf, this home offers three nice bedrooms, large open living spaces, and a game room the size of a small gym.  The flexibility of this house means adding extra bedrooms for larger families is super easy and most of all affordable with a full bathroom already available on the second floor.  We already know that a custom swimming pool, expansive stone patio, and a large rear deck make entertaining a joy.  You also have wide open living spaces looking out to the pool, a formal dining room connected by a butler pantry, a formal living, and of course the flex room upstairs.  Planning large parties will no longer be a stressful chore.

22 Living

Enjoy the greenery or pool, even from the inside.

31 Game Room

Possibilities are endless as this puts other “flex” rooms to shame.

The best part of this property is not found in its quantity with large lot and large sf home.  In fact, it is quite the opposite.  This home is designed and built by the reputable David Weekley.  The custom touches throughout show the builder’s and owners’ pride in this home.  Here are just a few:

  • Brick alcove in the kitchen
  • High grade granite counter tops
  • Custom built-in desk and book case in office
  • Central vacuum in every room with bonus dust pan in kitchen
  • Crown molding in the living room and master bedroom
17 Kitchen

Enough counter space and storage to match the size of this home.

20 Kitchen

This kitchen and open floor plan make parties and large gatherings a breeze.

For those wanting just a bit more, this home has it.  Offered at $395,000, the combination of lot features, home size, flexibility, and quality upgrades make this a rare find indeed.  Many people move into Georgetown Village because they like the amazing neighbors and highly rated schools. In all honesty, many of the homes in Georgetown Village play second fiddle to the location and neighborhood.  That all stops here.  With 131 Green Grove, you move in for the home and the highly desirable neighborhood is the cherry on top.

You may never want to leave your home again.

1022 Janae – Great Starter Home

Great curb appeal and very affordable home.

1022 Janae is a great starter home or downsize opportunity.  It has three good bedrooms, two full baths, an open floor plan, and a sliding glass door that walks you right out to the huge back yard.  It also includes a washer, dryer, and refrigerator to the next owner.  This is a no frills, move-in ready home for someone looking for a quiet street on a cul-de-sac, privacy in the back yard, and the option to make this home your own.

High ceilings and open floor plan in spacious living room.

The floor plan is perfect for wanting a bit of separation between the master and secondary bedrooms.  The master has its own walk-in bathroom and is situated away from the other bedrooms for more privacy.  The living room, dining area, and kitchen are the focal points of this home.  There are no walls or beams in the middle of the rooms so it is completely open.  Although the 1,144 sf seems low, the floor plan design feels much bigger and entertaining guests is a breeze.  Enjoy it the way it is, or add a couple upgrades to really make this shine.

Make this your very own retreat.

The back yard has a small concrete slab being used as a patio, but it sure does have room for more.  An extended covered patio, wood deck, and in-ground pool are all within reach.  Of course, you can leave it as it is if you enjoy the feel of thick St. Augustine grass underneath your toes.  It’s hard to find this type of yard in any home in Georgetown, let alone one that is priced so well at $125,000.

Beautifully maintained home in excellent Georgetown Village neighborhood.

The charming home at 144 Hickory is located on a quiet street with a cute front porch and a huge yet inviting back yard. You never want to judge a book by its cover, but in this case the immaculate landscaping and condition of the exterior is exactly the type of pride and joy you will see on the interior. For you college die hards, the only thing that may turn you away is the Aggie symbols, but those can be easily replaced.

Hardwood floors - the most expensive upgrade has already been done for you.

Bamboo hardwood and tile floors greet you on the first floor. They have been professionally installed and well-maintained – meaning no scratches, cracks, or dents – and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. The kitchen does not have stainless steel appliances or granite counter tops – two things most owners love to hand-pick themselves – but it as clean as a whistle.  It does have a nice free-flowing and open floor plan that will work for almost everyone.  Check out the video below to get a better idea of the floor plan.

For those who don't like to squeeze into their master bedrooms.

At 1,972 sf, this home gives you a large master bedroom with private walk-in bathroom, a formal dining room (or easily turn it into an at-home office), two large bedrooms on the second floor, and a nice loft area to read, watch tv, or work on kids’ projects. The home is a stone’s throw from the second largest park in the neighborhood and a 5-minute walk to the city pool and largest park in the neighborhood. It’s also conveniently located near Village Elementary School, one of the highest rated schools in Georgetown.  Priced at $194,000, this home is ready to be sold.

113 Silverstone – For Those Who Enjoy the Finer Things in Life

Custom home built by your imagination.

Imagine a home that has everything you ever wanted – the right floor plan, the right ceiling height, the right floor options, the right kitchen upgrades, the right curb appeal, the right colors, the right size. Everything is exactly the way you want it, where you want it, and how you want it. What do you call a home you move into and never want to move out of because the grass is greener on your side of the fence? Some refer to this as a dream home. Among real estate agents, we call this a custom home. 113 Silverstone is one such home.

How many upgrades do you see here? You'd be right if you said over 15.

113 Silverstone is a custom-built dream home located in the fantastic neighborhood of Westlake of the Woods in Georgetown, Texas. Its 3,600+ square feet leave plenty of space in each of the 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 living spaces, 2 dining areas, kitchen, and study. The single story floor plan feels like your favorite vacation retreat. The master suite is hidden in the rear of the home with a picturesque 8-ft wide x 6-ft high view of the gorgeous back yard. Beautiful, warm wood floors guide you to the master bathroom with a walk-in shower with dual shower heads, jetted tub, his and hers vanities and walk-in closets. Three secondary bedrooms share a large living space perfect for a game room, study area, or media/entertainment center. Guest accommodations include a 5th bedroom and full bathroom on the eastern wing of the home with a fully upgraded kitchen (stainless steel appliances, double oven, granite counters, tumbled travertine tiles, cherry wood cabinets, rock grotto, prep sink, etc.) serving as the central glue to the home.

Centralized flex room has lots of storage with two closets and built-in shelf.

Does a gourmet kitchen make food taste better?

Outdoor living space is well-accounted for with a large covered patio lined with tumbled travertine beneath and wood ceilings above. Relax next to the aurally soothing waterfall or allow the radiant heat from the bonfire-worthy fire pit surrounded by stone seating caress your face. Raised garden beds, 42″ rock wall, and additional outdoor entertaining area complete this spa-meets-nature environment. Masseuse not included.

A 3rd dining area in a peaceful outdoor setting.

Fire lovers and safety chiefs unite.

With an asking price of $565,000 ($155/sf), this is one of the best values in the neighborhood. Its direct competitors are either inventory (or “spec”) homes, or priced over $165/sf. Why? Most sellers are trying to capitalize on the buying frenzy and low inventory. The reasonable owners of 113 Silverstone have taken brilliant care of the home, feel it’s time to move on and believe this could be an amazing opportunity for the next owners to enjoy a wonderful home full of exquisite, luxury touches.

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.

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.


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.

kitchen-2gameroom

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.

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.

What sells better in Georgetown – 3 or 4 bedrooms?

I got an email from a past client the other day and she was wanting some advice on a small remodeling project:

avon_st_429691724_std

Hey Edward – I’ve been thinking I might like to make two of our bedrooms into one large one. The bedrooms are very small here.  Do you think that would be a mistake if we ever decided to sell? It would make our house a three bedroom instead of a four. – W.T.

I’m sure many of us have considered a renovation project at some point during home ownership.  Having HGTV or being inspired by Extreme Makeover:  Home Edition has certainly given renovation projects a new twist!  Fortunately for W.T., knocking down a wall to combine two bedrooms is an easier project than most.  The only question is, “What will it do to the value of her home?”

Well, let’s look at a comparison of ALL 3 bedroom homes with 4 bedroom homes in the city of Georgetown, Texas that sold in the past 12 months:

3 Bedrooms: 453 Sold, 37 currently Pending, 219 For Sale – 5.8 months of inventory

4 Bedrooms: 300 Sold, 20 currently Pending, 244 For Sale – 9 months of inventory

According to the numbers, more 3 bedroom homes have sold and there is less competition.  But what about if we narrow the search down to the home’s price range?

3 Bedrooms: 129 Sold, 8 currently Pending, 56 For Sale – 5.2 months of inventory

4 Bedrooms: 68 Sold, 2 currently Pending, 38 For Sale – 6.8 months of inventory

Although the inventory for a 4 bedroom home shrinks from 9 months to almost 7 months, it’s still 1.6 months more inventory than a 3 bedroom home.  It’s nice to know that the numbers are on your side, at least in the current market.  However, if you’re going to be staying in that home for a long time then I would go ahead with the renovation even if the numbers were not on your side. Why?  Well, it’s not like you’re doing something that will turn off a significant portion of the market like converting your garage to another bedroom and having no garage…you’ll also improve your quality of life and get lots of use out of a bigger room. You might even sell your home to a buyer who feels most rooms in a 4 bedroom home are too small anyway!

Quick caveat: In this particular neighborhood, most of the homes that sold in the past 12 months were 4 bedrooms homes.  In fact, only 3 of the 23 homes were 3 bedrooms, and the quickest home to sell took 94 days.  There’s only one 3 bedroom home (out of 5 homes) currently for sale and I’m the listing agent on it so maybe I’ll break a record:)  The big downside of removing the 4th bedroom is restricting your audience to just the 3 bedroom market.  The home with 4 bedrooms is able to compete in both markets.

What about you? I’d love to hear from readers about your success or nightmare renovation project! If you think going to a 3 bedroom home is a mistake, tell us why!  Would it be better to split the 4th bedroom and make it a 5 bedroom home?:)
