Highland Home in West Cypress Hills- Available Now!!

If you are looking for a brand new home in the Lake Travis ISD, there are some incredible options to consider right now!

Last week we toured new homes in West Cypress Hills, Rough Hollow, and Rocky Creek.

Each of these communities offers a big wow factor for their residents! They are all very unique from one another but each one has the beauty of the surrounding hill country and amenities that make you feel like you are on vacation!

In fact, we spoke to a couple of people who live and love their community who were willing to share their experiences. We talked with them about the homebuilding process, their positive experience with their chosen builder, their Realtor, and their overall happiness as a resident. Stay tuned for future posts!

Also, if you are looking to move in before the holidays, you should certainly take a closer look at Highland Homes in West Cypress Hills- or Rocky Creek- or Rough Hollow.

Grand Haven also has gorgeous new homes in Rough Hollow in Lakeway with a wide range of price points and offerings. (Lakeway communities are 10 and 11 on the link above)

Last week we toured new homes in Rough Hollow with a group of fabulous Austin Realtors. One of the highlights of the tour was getting to meet Dori Conway, onsite New Home Sales Consultant for Grand Haven Homes. Dori greeted us at her stunning model home with a huge smile and a wealth of information about Grand Haven Homes and the Rough Hollow Community of West Rim. Her enthusiasm for what she does truly shines through! She loves helping people find the perfect new home and meeting Austin Realtors.

If you are in the Lakeway area looking for new homes or you are an Austin Realtor looking to increase your knowledge- stop in and say hello!  (Be sure to also visit the other Grand Haven Homes Communities in Rough Hollow while you are there: The Summit, Highland Terrace, Cypress Ridge, and The Woodlands)

Here are a few questions we asked to get to know Dori better:

1. Where are you from originally and what brought you to Austin?

Originally from Minnesota – grew up in northern Minnesota – Grand Rapids, MN and moved to the Mpls/St. Paul area in High School. My children (2 boys) are grown and moved away so I decided to move to Austin to be close to my Mother and Sister.

2. What is the best thing about working with Grand Haven Homes?

Grand Haven Homes is a first class organization and builds one of the best, quality homes in the Austin area.

3. Who inspires you most?

My sister, Amy. She is a very successful business owner, wife and mother of 2 beautiful girls. She is a hard-working, caring person that always finds time to give of herself selflessly to her family, friends, church and community.

4. What is your favorite lunch spot in Lakeway?

The Grille at Rough Hollow – amazing food, comfortable ambiance and great views of Lake Travis.

5. What is your favorite Grand Haven floor plan in your community and why?

We have so many great floor plans to choose from but I really like the model floor plan (7810). This plan has a large open kitchen, dining room and living room – great for entertaining. It also includes a private casita for guest and the second floor includes a media room and bonus room.

Whether you’re looking to move into a new home in 90 days or nine months, Grand Haven Homes has something for you. Browse their community map to see available homes under construction, and contact a New Homes Sales Counselor for that community if you would like more information about a particular home.
