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?

Don’t forget about Temple, Killeen and Ft. Hood Texas!

You hear a lot about how Georgetown, Texas is such a great place to live for people who work in Austin. But what about 30 minutes in the other direction North? Well, that would land you right in Temple and the entire Killeen/Ft. Hood area. Don’t be scared off by the picture on the left…that would be more like your commute to Austin, then Temple. You see, if you’re heading north, there rarely is any traffic! Heading south into Austin, well, that’s another story.

I have recently had an influx of clients who are working in Temple/Ft. Hood/Killeen and one thing that is important to all of them is the drive time. So here’s a little research I put together thanks to the power of Google maps.

These calculations were done to the entrance of the neighborhood to the Hwy 195 exit 268. You’ll want to add another minute or two to get to the actual home.

These are all close to 10 minutes or less:

Shady Oaks = 4.1 Miles                          (6 Minutes)
Berry Creek/Logan Plateau = 4.5 Miles   (8 Minutes)
Falls of San Gabriel = 5.8 Miles              (9 Minutes)
Georgetown Village = 5.4 Miles              (9 Minutes)
Historic Georgetown Square = 5.4 Miles (9 Minutes)
River Chase = 6.7 Miles                           (9 Minutes)
Wood Ranch = 7.5 Miles                          (11 Minutes)

These are all 15-20 minutes:

Fountainwood Estates = 8.4 Miles              (14 Minutes)
Cimarron Hills = 11.9 Miles                        (15 Minutes)
Woodland Park = 9.1 Miles                          (15 Minutes)
Teravista = 12.2 Miles                                 (15 Minutes)
Mayfield Ranch = 13.7 Miles                       (15 Minutes)
Gabriels Overlook = 12.6 Miles                   (16 Minutes)
Behrens Ranch/Walsh Ranch 14.1 Miles      (16 Minutes)
Escalera Ranch = 12 Miles                           (17 Minutes)

From the Hwy 195 exit 268 to Temple exit 301 is 33.8 miles or 30 minutes. So you can get to Temple from any of these neighborhoods in 36 – 47 minutes one way. If you drive faster you can probably deduct another minute or two. Driving like a Grandma? Well, add another 5 minutes. Anyways, you get the point.

I’d be interested in some actual results! Do you live in one of these neighborhoods and work in Temple? How accurate are these times? Post your results!
