Realtor Review of Sweetwater Community in Southwest Austin

There is a new community that I’m pretty excited about — Sweetwater.  Everything about this community is, well…Sweet. It is a master planned community near Lake Travis and the Hill Country. But it’s not your ordinary, run of mill community. We’re talking scenic ridges, steep canyons, stunning views and gorgeous homes. When I say gorgeous, I mean beautiful inside and out AND they’re energy efficient.  Did I mention the views?

Sweetwater had a bit of a rough start. In 2004 when the developers announced their plans of the Sweetwater development,  Save Our Springs Alliance intervened and sued the developers. Once again it was the age old fight between growth vs. nature. Save Our Springs Alliance wanted to protect local waterways and the developers wanted to provide needed housing for the area. The lawsuit was dismissed and the court ruled in favor of the development. For various reasons, the project did not move forward until 2010 when Wheelock Street Capital acquired the property and brought new energy into the project including changing the plans to preserve the nature and beauty of the area, which Save Our Springs Alliance happily supports! The new improved Sweetwater includes 700 acres of wilderness areas and greenbelt space with extensive nature trails.

Sweetwater was worth the wait! Construction began this year on Phase One, which consists of 225 lots, with homes from 1,600-4,500 sq. ft. and features homes built by Ashton Woods Homes, Coventry Homes, David Weekley, Drees Custom Homes, Ryland Homes and Taylor Morrison, with prices starting in the $250’s. For those wanting lots of space and all the bells and whistles, the prices go up to the $600’s. This is definitely a premium community. In more ways than one!
