Rocky Creek- Bee Cave

 

Since I just posted an article about the growth in Bee Cave and Lakeway, I thought I would highlight some of the newer communities in the area- starting today with Rocky Creek. If you have never been on a drive out hwy 71, towards Hamilton Pool Road, get in your car and go today! It is peaceful and the landscape is stunning. It makes for a great lazy Sunday drive. Rocky Creek is located in this gorgeous hill country setting- it’s on Hamilton Pool Rd just past Crumley Ranch Road.

For those of us who have lived in Austin for awhile, Rocky Creek certainly seems “far out there” but really with all the new development in Lakeway,  it is not far at all. The Hill Country Galleria is only about six minutes away. And, all you really need is a great mall, right? But seriously, there are grocery stores, great restaurants,  Bee Cave Central Park, and  Lakeway Regional Medical Center will be open in April which is located only about ten minutes from Rocky Creek.

Another appealing aspect of Rocky Creek is that the students will go to the Lake Travis School District. Bee Cave Elementary-Lake Travis Middle School- Lake Travis High School. All fabulous, highly rated schools!

There are huge surrounding easements on both sides of Rocky Creek that have been dedicated to Nature Conservancy of Texas, meaning there are lots of open green spaces…although talk to the builders for more about the facts about that. What I do know for sure is that there are many nature trails in and around the community. I’ve never been hiking on them but judging from the breath-taking surrounding scenery, I bet they are incredible. The community also has a pool and kids play area.

There are plans to build about 400 homes. Highland Homes and Drees are the builders. The prices range from the high $300s to the high $500s.

There is more information and some great photos on the developers site- Hillwood Communities.
