Acres of wide open space, a stunning Texas Hill County setting with convenient access to the downtown core of Austin – the Belterra community has a lot going for it. It’s no small wonder that the community was awarded “Best Overall Community in Austin” by the Austin Home Builders Association in 2004.
New home developers in Austin love the freedom afforded to them in the areas outside of the city of Austin proper and have continued Belterra's proud tradition. Unrestricted by current neighborhoods and city zoning, developers are free to create incredible master-planned communities with decidedly larger lot sizes and no style restrictions except those of the developer’s imagination.
Development of the Belterra master-planned community began in 2005, the brain-child of award-winning Texas development company, Crescent Communities. Belterra is split between several different neighborhoods, each featuring a distinct style and flair.
A Stylish Alternative to Austin Big-City Living
This variety of neighborhood also means that there are properties available for virtually all home buyers, from first-time home buyers and growing families, to retirees and even investors. Property types also run the gamut, from stylish condominium to opulent estate homes.
The size and longevity of the development also means that many different local home builders have had their hand at molding the community’s look and feel. This includes Highland Homes, Grand Haven, Trend Maker, David Weekley among several others.
Although the community’s original developers have taken pains to preserve a cohesive style overall, each contributing builder has had the opportunity to introduce their own variation on the theme.
Convenience at your Doorstep
Belterra’s position at the outer reaches of Austin’s city limits translates to wide-open spaces, brilliant night time skies and a quiet, laid-back lifestyle – but don’t think you have to give up the conveniences of the city. Austin’s dynamic central core is only 19 miles away, and the shopping and dining experiences of nearby Dripping Springs can be reached within minutes.
That’s if you leave at all. Community planners set up the community with convenience in mind – amenities were positioned intelligently to ensure maximum accessibility. Belterra Village for example is a great example of a centrally located commercial hub, combining shopping, dining and other mix-used spaces.
In addition to shopping, Belterra also provides residents with incredible recreational opportunities. The large, central Belterra Community Association houses an aquatic center and state-of-the-art gym.
The true gem of the Belterra master-planned community is undoubtedly it’s incredible connection to nature. From the start, the neighborhoods were planned to take full advantage of the wealth of natural resources in the Texas Hill Country. Residents love the rolling hills, wonderful lakes, streams and rivers, in addition to the wonderfully scenic walking trails planned to provide unrestricted access.
In Belterra, it’s not just about the homes themselves, but the space between each property as well.
