Georgetown’s Beautiful New Planned Community:
Georgetown Texas has been the site of numerous brand-new planned communities, especially as its popularity has soared in recent years. Saddle Creek is one of the newest planned communities in Georgetown, encompassing 353 acres. Each lot holds a gorgeous and updated home, ranging from 2,100 square feet to 3,800.
Overall, Saddle Creek can accommodate nearly every kind of person, with homes and lot sizes that are perfectly suited to your needs and preferences. As for quality and reputation, these homes are built by either Century Communities or Pacesetter Homes, both highly rated building companies in the Austin real estate market.
In terms of location and surrounding attractions, Saddle Creek isn’t much more than a short drive from beautiful natural scenery, historic community sights in Downtown Georgetown and the buzz of Texas’ capital city, Austin.
There’s a lot more to Saddle Creek than meets the eye. In fact, the community’s amenity center houses a number of activities and other perks. In and around this state of the art and gorgeous facility you can find a pool, weight room, frisbee golf, hike and bike trails and much more.
There is also a sun soaked patio which lets residents take advantage of the climate year round, as well as a splash pad for the kids. Combined with the plentiful walking and biking paths, there is enough to keep you active and healthy no matter what time of the year it is.
There are also a number of parks, golf courses and other recreational facilities not far from the community.
For example, Lake Georgetown is an incredibly popular spot for locals, especially as the weather grows hotter. The lake itself is over 1,200 acres and provides a backdrop for boating, water skiing, fishing, hiking and camping. Those who prefer fishing as their activity of choice will be excited to hear that the lake is populated with largemouth bass, white bass, flathead and channel cat. The lake is open to both the public and the residents.
San Gabriel Park rests minutes away from Saddle Creek, and once there residents can expect to find beautiful hiking scenery, picnic areas and great swimming locations. One in particular stands out, Blue Hole. The aesthetics of Blue Hole are known by many in the Georgetown area, with the crisp water contrasted by the natural limestone bluffs.
One of the undeniable strengths of Saddle Creek is its relative location to Downtown Georgetown and the neighboring city of Austin. Both are only an easy drive from the community.
For residents taking their commute into account, this should take some of the stress away. The area surrounding Austin is rich with many different industries and continues to attract a wide range of professionals.
In terms of simply experiencing the local towns and cities, Downtown Georgetown is a terrific place to start.
Lifestyle In and Around Saddle Creek:
The lifestyle in most of Georgetown’s communities can be described as a mix between urban and suburban feel. Saddle Creek is no different, with a design reminiscent of the most modern planned communities but with access to popular urban centers within a stone’s throw.
If you want to venture away from the community of Saddle Rock to get a change of scenery, your two most obvious choices are Downtown Georgetown and Austin. Both are very unique and offer very different experiences.
The city of Georgetown is the 7th fastest growing city in the country, and the rapid improvements and additions to the area surely reflect as much. Georgetown is a great blend of suburban living and urban feel. Georgetown itself is home to several historic sites and attractions, all of which are worth a glance when discovering more about the area.
While much of downtown Georgetown is dedicated to popular stores and restaurants, the Old Town section of Georgetown gives visitors a glimpse into the city’s long and storied history. Much of the original Victorian architecture has been completely restored and renovated. There are also several museums and other attractions that offer tours and viewings.
The capital city isn’t very far from Georgetown either, and provides another unique experience for visitors and residents alike. At around a half hour away, escaping to the city for a few hours is convenient and easy, whether it’s to walk around, visit a popular restaurant or attend a sporting event.
Future of Georgetown:
Being one of the fastest growing cities in America, Georgetown has certainly experienced a fair amount of change in the past few years. One of the great things about how the city has developed is how the growth has been implemented. A major emphasis was placed on how to successfully grow the area without harming the current residents or way of life. Planned communities like Saddle Creek have allowed the expansion to continue in a way that doesn’t encroach on the way of life of residents who have spent their entire life in the area.
Likewise, Saddle Creek was designed specifically for new residents, incorporating every feature that one might need. The homes are built with variation to accommodate different styles of living and family size.
In the future, Georgetown’s growth is expected to continue, but local officials have committed to making these additions in ways that will improve the overall community as well as protect the current way of life.
