DRIPPING SPRINGS — A high-end, luxury home community will soon be coming to Dripping Springs.
Southern Land Company (SLC) announced it closed on its land acquisition in Dripping Springs on Jan. 31, marking SLC’s first project in the region.
The community will be located near Treaty Creek Distilling at the end of Silver Creek Road and will include ten 1.5-acre lots and 17 two-acre lots. 19 of the lots will back up to Barton Creek and offer bluff, river and Hill Country views. The community will also feature a gathering center with river access. The starting price for these single-family homes will likely be around $1.5 million.
“We are eager to get started on what is going to be a collection of beautiful, inviting, high-quality homes,” said Dan Hutts, president of SLC’s Hill Country Region homebuilding group. “Barton Creek provides an exceptional backdrop to our future community. It will be well suited for the discerning homebuyer who seeks a blend of unique design, extreme attention to detail and a stunning natural setting.”
The project was first announced in October 2021 as SLC’s homebuilding group expanded into Hays, Travis, Burnet and Comal counties.
“We are very particular when selecting sites for our projects,” said Brian Sewell, president and COO of SLC. “The demand for high-end homes in Dripping Springs was only one factor in our decision to build here. The area’s thriving culture, abundant outdoor activity opportunities, excellent school district and proximity to Austin were critical factors as well. Dripping Springs is energizing and exciting.”
The engineering process began in January 2022 and infrastructure construction is expected to begin in September 2022.
