Last week, I attended a very exclusive gathering. All the Platinum Top 50 Realtor Finalists were invited out to The Reserve at Lake Travis for a memorable night. They flew in fresh Hawaiian leis that morning. It was very nice. The Reserve at Lake Travis is a secluded community in Spicewood TX that offers a lot of different things for different people. They have an Equestrian Center for boarding your horses. They have a Lazy River pool area. They have a Marina to dock your boat. They have acreage lots in addition to basic lots. They have villas if you want the condo/townhome feel. Coming this Fall, they will even have cabins that they will be renting out by the night. For the PT50 Event, we were given a tour on the water so we could see how far out the property went. They took us out in ...

"Homebuilders ready to start Sweetwater" was a front page headline in the Austin Business Journal ths morning. Sweetwater, a master planned community of 1,800 homes, is planned for the Lake Travis area.  The devleoper is hiring seven home builders in the next 30 days, to fully develop the community, which will cover 1,400 acres on Hwy 71. According to plan, Sweetwater homes will vary in size, style and price - beginning in the $200s. Canyons and scenic ridges near the lake, will occupy up to half the property and be preserved as greenbelt. The project was purchased from foreclosure and previous development included much of the infrastructure...roads, sewer, and electrical.  So, it's my guess that we will all see construction begin early 2012.  Future planning for the Hwy 71 area include...

Pace Bend Park in Spicewood TX is a great place to spend those triple digit degree days!!  Pace Bend Park is off the Pedernales River that is a branch off from Lake Travis.  The water is pretty low right now, but that just meant we had to be careful about some of the old tree stumps sticking up on the beach.  This is a park where many people bring their trailers and RV's and camp over night. Some people just bring tents, but there is 1000s of acres of land for camping and such.  We have a Travis County annual pass, but we also found out that everyone over 62 gets in free! That's a plus, considering they charge per car and not per person.We built sandcastles and collected seashells and rode the waves in on a tube. The most interesting thing about the shape of the Pedernales River and Lak...

We went out to Pace Bend Park in Spicewood Briarcliff TX on Lake Travis on Sunday and enjoyed the hot 100 degrees in the water. This picture makes it look like there was no one else there, but there were tons of people. It's like they all parted the waters when they saw the camera come on. Landon had a blast for his first beach trip to Lake Travis. We sat and played in the water a lot, and this is him taking a break on his sister's towel... **Are You Packed Yet?** Donna Harris, REALTOR®RE/MAX Austin Skylinewww.DonnaHomes.comaDonna@DonnaHomes.com Austin TX Real Estate and the surrounding areas of Lakeway, Bee Cave, West Lake Hills, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Spicewood, Circle-C, Steiner Ranch, and everywhere in between...

Summer is basically over, but I have not been on the boat for several months... it was time to winterize it, which meant Mike needed to take the boat out and do whatever you do to winterize it.  He suggested a ride since my mom was in town.  What a great idea! Alyssa loves being on the boat, and it had been a year since she had been on. We didn't completely think about the logistics of getting the boat in and out of the water since I'm the one who usually backs the trailer down... there was no boat dock. There was no place to get into or out of the boat, except at the bottom of the ramp.  But then, with my 34 week pregnant belly, how the heck was I supposed to jump on board? I certainly couldn't jump and go head first! Mike pulled up as close as he could, and I managed to somehow pull m...

Little Buckaroo Ranch in Spicewood TX off Hamilton Pool Rd was a hit with my daughter, Alyssa.  We went there on a field trip a few days ago, and she hasn't stopped talking about it since.She got Fish kisses.  They are on well water and keep fish in the tanks to eat the bacteria, and then the horses feed the fish by squishing the water out and putting their own food back into the water.  The cycle of life! She watered the miniature horses and saw some standard size ones too.  We watched one of them jumping over a log and she tells me she dreams about this every night.  How cute... She pet Peter Cotton Tail, the bunny, and then went for a ride pulled by a tractor.  She pet the top of a rooster and thought that was great! She fed the goats alfalfa and talks non-stop about them... After al...

Why did I just walk away from another listing for Spicewood TX Homes for Sale?  Because the seller knows more than me!  How can I educate someone who won't listen because he thinks he already knows it all. How does he know it all?  Because he's been on the market for 2 years!  Yes, since 2007, he's been trying to sell his house.  He's gone through 5 Realtors already.  It might be six, but I'm not wasting time to look his property up again. This round, he met with me and another agent.  I received the call from Mrs. Seller yesterday saying that they chose me, YEAH!  We discussed the terms since there was some back and forth at our meeting about what those terms would be.  The rest of the contract was standard stuff like exclusions and protection period. He wanted to change the protectio...

Spicewood TX Real Estate is unique with houses next to farms. I was leaving a listing appointment in Spicewood TX on Saturday afternoon.  I pulled out of their driveway, turned right, and almost immediately had to slam on my breaks... Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?  The old answer is still correct, to get to the other side.  There was no rhyme or reason for these chickens and roosters and hens and GOATS to be out roaming around.  However, they felt as soon as I pulled up, they had this urge to get to the other side. So, I stopped my car, and did what anyone else would do... I took pictures!  I thought it was just a handful of them, but then when I looked outside my side window, I saw at least 50.   This was a little startling, to say the least.  I wonder if this activity would hind...

Angel's Icehouse Restaurant in Spicewood, TX is a great family restaurant. Many restaurants claim to be "family" restaurants, so what makes Angel's Icehouse different?  They are a full service, regular restaurant, but also have a playscape area for the kids to play.  Many fast food restaurants have play equipment, but you don't expect to see it at a "regular" restaurant. They also have an entire outdoor entertainment area for live music, or just to have large gatherings.  Picnic tables everywhere that can be moved around to accommodate the size of your group.   Think it's too hot to eat outside?  They have fans blowing every which way on the back patio so it was actually fairly decent when it was 105 degrees and we ate outside. Angel's has something going on almost every night from Taco...

R.O's Outpost B.B.Q has won several awards over the years, and also comes with a side of a romantic story.  I met with the owners this afternoon, and I'll start with the story. Randy and Kathy Osban met while working at Clark's Outpost BBQ in Tioga, TX some 27 years ago.  They worked there for 12 years.  Almost 14 years ago, they were in the Texas Hill Country on vacation, having lunch at a restaurant and asked what happened to the BBQ place next door. The owner happened to be around and asked if they wanted to see it, and they did.  Right down the street is a street called RO Drive.  RO happens to be Randy's initials.  They drove down that street, made a left on Bee Creek Rd, and guess what street was just about 1/2 mile down?  You guessed it, Kathy Ln. This was more than just a coinci...

The Pedernales River is one of the major contributers to the water supply for Lake Travis.  Just as other rivers are low, so is the Pedernales.  I took the photo below crossing over the river looking north from the bridge on Hwy 71.  Sorry the contraxt isn't better.  It was very overcast yesterday. See what looks like a valley with grass in it?  That is the dry Pedernales River with boat docks sitting on the ground all along it.  My guess is that what you are looking at is around 8 river miles to Lake Travis. The fact that the Pedernales will be dry or too low for boating at times is the one of the reasons that waterfront homes on the Pedernales River are less expensive than  Lake Travis waterfront homes.  The other is that the river isn't as clear as the lake.  When the lake and river ...
