Dreaming of Your Own Custom Home in 78738? We Have Your Lot.

Anyone who has looked around the Lakeway area for a great buildable home site knows how hard they are to find. In The Hills of Lakeway in particular, only a handful of vacant lots remain and many present tough building challenges.

We were delighted to find a rare diamond in the rough recently, at 29 Wingreen Loop in The Hills of Lakeway. It is truly one of the last lots on which to build in this beautiful gated community.  This one-third acre lot has nice Hill Country views, and an ideal building site in the center.  Here are a few photos of the lot and view.

As a Hills resident, you can take advantage of great golf, fitness and dining amenities, with close proximity to award-winning schools, trails, shopping and restaurants.  If you are looking to live in The Hills, and always dreamed of a home designed precisely to your tastes and needs, contact us https://jkdbuilder.com/contact-us/ about 29 Wingreen Loop. We would love to help you call this lovely property home in 2016!

JKD Builder Breaks Ground on Rare Home site in Hills of Lakeway

Our team is excited to break ground this month on our next custom home in the Lakeway community, this one at 27 Wingreen Loop in the heart of The Hills of Lakeway gated subdivision.  We worked closely with our architects to create a design that makes the most use of the 1/3-acre lot and its Hill Country views, while incorporating the things that home buyers say are most important to them.

This two-story 3,100-sq.ft home is on one of the Hills’ last remaining lots. Downstairs, the home features open living, kitchen and eating spaces flanked by windows overlooking a covered outdoor living and kitchen, with privacy hard to find.  The master wing also opens onto the outdoor living area.  A second downstairs bedroom with bath can serve as an office or study. Upstairs you’ll find two additional bedrooms and baths, a large game room plus a patio with views.

“Open floor plans centered around a great room and kitchen continue to top homeowners’ wish lists, according to reports from Professional Builder magazine,” says Keith Durio, owner of JKD Builder. “In addition, buyers see the kitchen as the social hub of the house and want large islands that can serve as work, eating and gathering space. This home has all of that, plus many more features that we know are important to today’s buyers.”

Other popular features include a mud room complete with desk and cabinets that can serve as the “drop zone” for the entire family upon entering from the garage; as well as a roomy utility with plenty of work space and room for pet bedding.  To see full plans and specs, please contact us at 512/771-1660 or keith@pga.18d.myftpupload.com.

New Lakeway Custom Home Now Complete

We’ve recently completed our latest home project, just in time to settle into for summer fun. JKD Builder’s home at 102 Vixen Court in Lakeway is perfectly situated for an active family. Just walk across the cul-de-sac and you are on one of Lakeway’s popular nature running trails. Tennis courts, fitness classes and a recently renovated gym are literally steps from your door. Want a more serious swim, or meeting friends for a pool party? The Lakeway Swim Center is within walking distance (really). There aren’t many communities that offer this range of amenities with NO mandatory homeowner association dues.

What attracted us to building on this particular lot? “When we spotted this property, we didn’t hesitate. We knew immediately that it would make a beautiful home site,” says Keith Durio, with JKD Builder. “For one thing, it is nearly impossible to find flat buildable lots in the Lakeway area, that have good trees and a view, which this one does. In addition, being on a culdesac that it is fully built out has the bonus of enabling us to design a plan that maximizes privacy from the surrounding homes. It has easy access to shopping, and yet is deceptively quiet with little traffic.”

Even with community two pools within walking distance – the Lakeway Swim Center and the World of Tennis pool – the JKD Builder design team knew the importance of configuring a plan to allow for adding a potential pool. “It’s Texas! Lots of our clients want pools, and this property’s back yard couldn’t be better situated for one,” Durio says. The 3,100 sq.ft. home is located on a one-third acre private and quiet lot […]

Lake Travis Schools Continue to be a Draw

The Lakeway community continues to be a hot market, and among the attractions is its stellar school district. What began in 1981 as a one-school ISD with 500 students across a 118-mile territory has grown today to nine campuses, with 1,050 employees serving a whopping 8,800 students.

Brad LancasterThe JKD Builder team had the privilege of hearing LTISD Superintendent Brad Lancaster share details about the district at the November Home Builders Association Lakeway/Bee Caves Chapter meeting.

“We’ve seen astonishing growth in the Lake Travis district,” he said, noting nearly 70% growth in the study body in the last 10 years alone. “We have 600 new students move to the district this year, and the projection is that we will be at 13,085 by 2022.”  There’s not been a single year in which LT school enrollment hasn’t been on the uptick.

Why are people moving here? Lancaster says several factors make the Lake Travis schools a draw:

  • Consistently high state passing rates;
  • A highly educated population  – nearly 60% of Lakeway area residents have bachelor’s degrees or higher.
  • A high median income level, in excess of $87,341.
  • A low economically disadvantaged population (14%)
  • And, a strong positive perception of the school district.

laketravismapThe draw of great schools is driving demand for new homes in the district, especially for custom homes in the city of Lakeway, where residents can access an array of community amenities with no homeowner association fee. JKD Builder’s custom home in the heart of Lakeway is a rare chance to live steps from tennis, pools, gym, trails, lake access – and award-winning schools! Drive […]
