WHERE HILL COUNTRY BEAUTY
IS PART OF EVERYDAY LIFE
Welcome to Austin. As you’ll soon learn, Austinites are very proud of
the unique culture and vibrant economy that make ours one of
America’s most admired cities.
We’re also proud of the rugged beauty of our natural environment.
You can make that beauty a part of your everyday life at Sweetwater,
a new 1,400-acre master-planned community in western Travis
County, where Austin meets the cherished Texas Hill Country.
Imagine exploring miles of wilderness trails across high ridges and
through dramatic canyons. Or watching the sky paint itself pink and
purple, from the vantage point of our Sunset Terrace. Or seeing
millions of stars at night, thanks to our dark-sky policy.
Yet, even as Sweetwater offers you a peaceful escape from the buzz
of the city, it also provides everything you want and need close at
Family fun? You’ll find it at the Sweetwater Club—our 10-acre
amenity center with a resort-style beach-entry pool, splash pad,
pavilion, clubhouse, events lawn, athletic fields, sport court, classes,
clubs and special events.
Great schools for your children? Sweetwater is in the Lake Travis
Independent School District, which by virtually every measure ranks
among the very best in Texas. The schools to which Sweetwater
students are currently assigned – Serene Hills Elementary, Lake Travis
Middle and Lake Travis High – are top-rated by the Texas Education
Agency. Next fall, Sweetwater students will attend brand new
elementary and middle schools nearby.
Shopping? Sweetwater is just five minutes from the Hill Country
Galleria where you’ll find Dillard’s, Whole Foods, Dicks, fashion
retailers, restaurants, and movie theaters. Big-box stores like Lowe’s,
Home Depot, Best Buy, Target and PetSmart are just across the road.
Medical care? The new Lakeway Regional Medical Center and St.
David’s Emergency Center are close at hand, along with dozens of
Recreation? There’s Lake Travis for boating, nearby facilities for
competitive tennis and swimming, and golf at some of the best public
and private courses in the Austin area.
Commuting? Downtown Austin and lots of suburban employment
campuses are within 30 minutes of Sweetwater. Austin-Bergstrom
International Airport is a straight shot east on Highway 71.
New Homes? At Sweetwater, you can choose from more than 50
new single-family home plans offered by some of America’s leading
builders, including Ashton Woods, Coventry, David Weekley,
Ryland, Taylor Morrison and Drees Custom Homes. Prices range from
the high $200s to the $600s.
These homes are designed for beauty, comfort and energy
efficiency. Indeed, every Sweetwater home is required to meet a
recognized national Green Building standard. It is also
noteworthy that Sweetwater offers low-cost natural gas rather than
propane for heating and cooking.
The best way to discover all that Sweetwater offers is to visit the
community in person. The Welcome Center and model homes are
open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, noon to
6. You’ll find the Welcome Center at 5348 Pedernales Summit
Parkway, just off Highway 71 five minutes west of Ranch Road 620
South. Call (512) 264-3200 for more information.
