Listing Details

At 315 Cloudview Dr, you are just a couple minutes away from all of the South Congress (SoCo) and South 1st (SoFi) hotspots, as well all of the nearby shopping, dining and entertainment options at the Southpark Meadows commercial pavilion. Another great feature of this mature South Austin neighborhood, is that there isn’t a homeowner’s association (which saves you money on your monthly payments!).

When you arrive at 315 Cloudview Dr, the landscaping, mature shade trees and curb appeal will let you know you are at a true South Austin gem. Drought tolerant plants and fresh landscaping add much-desired curb appeal and style. It’s easy to tell right away that these homeowners really enjoyed living here.

You are welcomed into the home’s open floor plan and are greeted by its formal dining with updated fixtures. I love the architectural feature that stands out in the living room – the large beam running across the vaulted ceiling. The living room also features a fireplace and laminate wood floors.

Adjoining the kitchen is a breakfast room. The kitchen has glass door cabinets to show off your finer party-ware. A true laundry room takes you from the kitchen to the two-car garage.

The home has three bedrooms with a fourth optional bedroom/study. Inside the master you have double walk-in closets and a remodeled bath that has upgraded tile, a tiled walk-in shower and double vanity straight from a magazine!

The backyard has an expansive wood deck that perfect for a backyard barbecue! Fire up the hot tub that conveys with the home and you have a great South Austin party pad!

As you enter 2009 Aster Way, you see a study or formal living room to your left and a formal dining room to your right. A door leads you from the dining room to the kitchen, or you can follow the entry way to the living room, past the breakfast bar that opens the kitchen up to the living room.

In the kitchen you will find a surprisingly deep pantry. Through the kitchen is a breakfast room, perfect for your morning coffee! You’ll also find a utility closet for your laundry.

What I love most about this home is that you get so much space! Clocking in at 2,013 square feet (per WCAD), this home will impress you with its rooms and its roominess!

About the Community

Round Rock, Texas, is a great town for all types of people and families at all stages of their life. I also find that many of my buyer clients who are first-time home buyers do their house hunting in Round Rock. This is mostly because of the good schools, plethora of shopping and dining options and the price points of homes range from below the Austin median to well-above.

For more information on this popular community, be sure to read our Neighborhood Review of Meadows at Chandler Creek.

2121 Ariella Dr, Cedar Park TX 78613 – Just SOLD in Gann Ranch!

Cedar Park real estate has been booming over the last several years. I can still remember when Cedar Park was a sleepy town, on the verge of expansion. Now, it is one of the hottest places in the country to live!

One of the reasons why people choose Cedar Park is for the good school district, Leander ISD. Living near a school is desirable in Cedar Park, as many families prefer to be in close driving or walking distance to their children’s schools. This is a perfect segue for me to tell you about a fantastic house that we just listed for sale, located just around the corner, at 2121 Ariella Dr, Cedar Park TX 78613!

Located in the Gann Ranch community, the backyard to 2121 Ariella Dr is across the street from Knowles Elementary. Knowles is adjacent to Running Brushy Middle School. Live here and you can be in great proximity to school from kinder to 8th grade! Read on to find out how this home also has an incredible backyard, giving you a lush garden to buffer you from the school.  Also be sure to read our review of the Gann Ranch neighborhood for even more details on the community.

Features & Upgrades

But first, I want to bring you to the front of 2121 Ariella Dr. When you arrive to this two-story home you’ll be drawn in to the extended covered patio. I imagine a wicker couch, chair and table a la Pottery Barn adorning this larger-than-average front porch.

Double doors bring you inside to the dramatic foyer with two-story ceilings. Tile flooring flows from the foyer throughout the home’s living spaces.

The formal dining also has the two-story ceilings and custom drapery anchors the wall of windows in this room. I also love the three arched niches in the formal dining.

Next you’ll find a large kitchen that has Corian countertops, generous cabinet space and a walk-in pantry. The cook top is gas. From the kitchen, you look over the bar-top spaces to either the breakfast room or the living room. Updated light fixtures give these rooms a modern twist.

The focus of the living room is the fireplace with a deep niche for your decorations. There is a large wall with space for almost any entertainment center and another wall of windows, allowing natural light to pour into the home.

If you are looking for an owners’ retreat that won’t cramp your style, you’ll love this spacious room with bay windows and even room for a sitting area. The bath features a separate tub and garden tub, double sinks and a true walk-in closet – no need to fight for space here!

Upstairs you will be welcomed by a large game room with built in shelves. On one side of the gameroom you have a bedroom and full bath and on the other side you have two more bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bath. I must say, these rooms are all incredibly large, some ideal for even more than one bed! Great closet space, too!

Now we can get to one of my favorite parts of this home – the backyard! A flagstone patio extends past the covered patio and a winding trail takes you to a trellis. What is special about this is that hummingbirds love to buzz around the trellis as the evening approaches, making it a romantic spot for a bistro table and a bottle of wine! You’ll also have a great view of the extensive garden and shade trees that cover the rest of the yard. An automatic sprinkler system helps you maintain this beautiful yard.

We Just Listed 13320 Coleto Creek Trl, Austin TX 78732!

We just listed an impressive home for sale at 13320 Coleto Creek Trl. Located in River Heights Overlook, a gated community in Steiner Ranch, this 4,440 square foot home (appraiser) has five bedrooms and four full baths. This floor plan from Drees Homes offers spaciousness and flexibility to suit your needs, as four of the bedrooms are downstairs, one is upstairs, and there are multiple living and entertaining areas throughout.

Photo Gallery

Listing Details

As you pull up to 13320 Coleto Creek Trl through the gated section of River Heights Overlook, you’ll be drawn to the curb appeal of the home. Cascading tiers of lush landscaping lead you to the welcoming front porch area and a decorative glass front door.

Look up as you enter the home so you can appreciate the grand light fixture in the foyer. To the right of the foyer is the formal dining large enough to host the heartiest of dinner parties. Wood flooring takes you from the dining room into the study and you will see it carried through to the living room later.

One bedroom en suite is located to the front of the home by the study and you’ll find the other two secondary bedrooms that are located on the first floor on the other side of the kitchen and living with their own bathroom to share.

You will really feel at home when you come to the hearth room that sits adjacent to the grand kitchen. I don’t want to describe this room as cozy, because in real estate that word tends to be the dressed-up word for small, and this room is anything but small! But, it really gives you that warm and cozy feeling when you see the room – perhaps it is the fireplace or the way you want to curl up with a hot cup of tea and a good book when you see this room!

One of my favorite parts of the home is the show-stopping island in the kitchen. You and your family & friends will love gathering around the over-sized island and it is easily the hub of the kitchen. You also have generous amounts of counter space and cabinetry in the kitchen.

A beautiful light fixture hangs above the dining room that sits across from the kitchen on your way to the living room. From the kitchen and living room, you look out onto the covered patio and backyard which features large shade trees and lush landscaping. The ceiling reaches atop the second story in the living room, giving it an extra spacious feel. A second fireplace and niche for your entertainment system are also in the living room.

The owner’s retreat is a special one at 13320 Coleto Creek Trl. Your bedroom furniture needs will fit undoubtedly in this expansive space. The luxurious spa features a king-sized walk-in shower, garden tub and double vanities. Filling this walk-in closet will be fun for any fashionista!

Heading upstairs, you enter a spacious game room that could easily double as a second living room. Through the double-doors to the right lies a media room complete with a projector screen, a projector and a wrap-around sectional sofa. Leave the media room and head beyond the upstairs gameroom in the other direction and you will find the fifth bedroom with it’s own private full bathroom!

The backyard is lovely, complete with a sizable covered patio with a tall ceiling and several shade trees.  The yard has ample space for a pool too, and the owners have a pool design that is available upon request.

The three-car tandem garage has tons of storage space for you and an extra tall ceiling for any additional storage needs you may have.

13320 Coleto Creek Trl is a substantial estate-sized home built for a discerning buyer. It is a well thought out floor plan and the owners have upgraded this home using care and consideration with their selections.

If you are looking for Steiner Ranch homes for sale in a gated section of the community, and more specifically the area zoned to Laura Welch Bush Elementary, then you are going to want to schedule your appointment today to view this home!

Neighborhood Review of River Heights Overlook, a Gated Community in Steiner Ranch

Although the UT Golf Club is the largest, more recognizable gated section in Steiner Ranch, it may surprise you to learn that there are a small handful of other gated communities scattered throughout Steiner Ranch, such as Santa Luz, Lakewood Hills, and River Heights Overlook.

Today, I am going to go into detail about why River Heights Overlook, one of the gated communities mentioned above, is one of my favorite sections in Steiner Ranch!

You enter the gates of River Heights Overlook after you pass the Towne Square community park, Laura Welch Bush Elementary and Canyon Ridge Middle School. And, it is the proximity to those Steiner Ranch landmarks that lands this section at the top of my “Best of Steiner Ranch” list.

Towne Square is an all-in-one community center that the Steiner residents visit frequently. Amenities include tennis courts, basketball court, swimming pools – including a shaded wade pool for the little ones, indoor/outdoor pavilion for parties and more, a great playground, and sport fields. On the weekends you can see soccer games going on or even the hub of a 5K event. Throughout the year, events like movies in the park and a Halloween Trunk or Treat take place at Towne Square. Towne Square is one of the central places in Steiner Ranch for events and to be so close, yet in a gated section, you are in one primo spot in the River Heights Overlook!

Pictures of River Heights Overlook

In Steiner Ranch, there are three elementary schools and one middle school. Depending on if you are the type of person who prefers to walk to school, you will love how River Heights Overlook is situated in walking distance to the awesome Laura Bush Elementary and Canyon Ridge Middle School (which are also oh-so-conveniently-located right across the street from one another!). That means you can spend all of your children’s pre-high-school-years conveniently right down the street if you live in River Heights Overlook. And, this is the only section this close by that is gated!

If convenience to schools and one of the hubs of Steiner Ranch are not enough for you, the homes and views within River Heights Overlook will win you over. Luxurious, estate-sized homes line the streets and cul-de-sacs in this section, many of which have sweeping canyon and Lake Austin views!

Now that you are in the know about this great section in Steiner Ranch, call me today so you can see the homes that are available to you in River Heights Overlook!

Neighborhood Review of Buckingham Ridge in South Austin

Map of Buckingham Ridge, Austin TX 78745

South Austin has remained a popular place for buyers over the last several years, and that popularity will likely remain forever.  If you are looking north of the 290 in south Austin, the latest statistics put the average sales price in the mid/high $400k range for a single family home. That prices out most first-time buyers and many others too.  However, if you go south of the 290, you can find a home still priced in the mid-$200s.

Our featured south Austin community is Buckingham Ridge – a small, non-HOA community nestled between South 1st and South Congress, with William Cannon at its north border.

Our buyers love this little community for two main reasons: its proximity to the hot spots on South 1st/South Congress and because they can still afford a home under the $250,000 range. As mentioned above, there is no monthly HOA fee, and in addition to that, the tax rate is a reasonable 2.46%.

The homes in Buckingham Ridge were primarily built in the late 1970’s – so you get a lot of that character and charm South Austinites love! And, as expected from an older community, it is abundant with mature shade trees.

Whether you are looking for a home to remodel and add your own touches or a home that has recently been renovated with a modern twist, you are sure to find a home in this south Austin community!

Neighborhood Review of Meadows at Chandler Creek in Round Rock TX

Today we are writing a review on a mature neighborhood in Round Rock called Meadows at Chandler Creek.  We haven’t been out to this neighborhood in a while, but we were quickly reminded why this is one of Round Rock’s popular places to live.

Where is Meadows at Chandler Creek?

This community is located off of A.W. Grimes Blvd just north of Hwy 79.  Getting to and from this neighborhood is so much simpler now that the 45 Toll Road is completed.  If you’re coming into Round Rock from the north on the I-35, you’ll want to exit Old Settler’s Blvd and make a right onto A.W. Grimes Blvd.  The entrance to the community will be on your left.

Pictures of Meadows at Chandler Creek

Here are a few pictures of the neighborhood that we recently took.  Notice the impressive amenity center and HUGE park area that residents get the luxury of enjoying right near their homes!

Review of Meadows at Chandler Creek

I was blown away at just how beautiful and well-manicured the park areas are in Meadows at Chandler Creek.  The park consists of a sand volleyball court, a soccer field, a large covered pavilion, and multiple playground areas too.  It spans several acres and looks like a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon with your friends and family.

The HOA maintains an amenity center that includes a community pool (with a gated entrance to ensure only residents can enter), several lighted tennis courts, and a covered pavilion area.

Aside from what’s going on inside the community, residents also can catch a baseball game at nearby Dell Diamond, have a great meal at the Salt Lick restaurant or Torchy’s Tacos.  There’s also an H-E-B and a Randall’s grocery store nearby too.

Schools nearby include Double File Trail Elementary, Robertson Elementary and Stepping Stone School for the youngsters.  PFC Robert P. Hernandez Middle School and Stony Point High School are also near the neighborhood for residents.

The amenity center pool was a popular place to hang out on the day we visited Meadows at Chandler Creek.  It looked like everyone was having a good time enjoy the warm Texas summer day.

For more information about Meadows at Chandler Creek and to find out if this neighborhood could be right for you, give us a call today.  We’ll schedule a time with you to tour the community and look at some of the available homes too!
