The Springs at Walnut Creek is David Weekley's newest neighborhood in North Austin. It is 15 minutes on I35 from Downtown and close to major North Austin employers like Samsung. It's an interesting alternative for buyers who love the style of homes, and who have been priced out of Mueller.
While a Garden Home at Mueller might start at $325,000 for a 2 bedroom 1600 sqft home that is built on a zero lot line (which means the homes are 5' apart, and one side of the home has no windows as it is a firewall), prices at the Springs start at $211,000 for the Ashcroft - a 1700sqft 3 bed home that sits on a typical Austin new home lot.
So I anticipate that buyers looking for an energy efficient new home will consider moving North to the new community and enjoy much more home for less money. My view is shared by the builder who has moved one of their former Mueller sales staff up to the new neighborhood. The model homes are all but complete and the furniture was delivered last weekend which will make the models ready to visit for the holidays.
