Beginning on March 7, thousands of people are going to descend on Austin for SXSW for an opportunity to celebrate the city’s singular annual event and discover all the beauty of living in Texas.

The music, film, and interactive showcase that is SXSW started as a local music festival in 1986 and by 2013 had grown so large it helped contribute more than $218 million into the Austin economy. That number is expected to be eclipsed this year, as is the number of people who come into town for SXSW, take a short jaunt to the Texas Hill Country, and fall in love with its preeminent master-planned acreage community, Vintage Oaks.

Venturing into the Hill Country and deciding they never want to leave is somewhat of a Texas pastime, especially on the cusp of spring when Texas is at its most alluring. That is especially true once they discover Vintage Oaks, the fastest-selling community in the Hill Country, according to Metrostudy.

Vintage Oaks is the answer for so many people who want to be close to Austin but enjoy Hill Country scenery and serenity. Vintage Oaks sold nearly 150 homesites in 2013 and and also saw a 40 percent increase in new-home starts last year.

Vintage Oaks currently offers:

  • Silver Oaks, offering 1- to 2.42-acre properties with some of the most breathtaking views of the Hill Country’s rolling terrain and majestic oak trees. Wooded, cul-de-sac, and view homesites overlook the Hill Country landscape and are dotted with hundred-year-old oak trees. Silver Oaks is within walking distance to many of Vintage Oaks’ amenities, including the Clubhouse, swimming pools, athletic fields and walking trails. The neighborhood is also a short walk from Comal ISD's proposed school site.
  • Champagne Hills, Vintage Oaks’ first gated community in more than two years, offering some of the most spectacular Hill Country views and a rare air of privacy. The homesites also offer huge oak trees, heavily wooded landscapes, private cul-de-sac sites and green belt locations with direct access to the community’s walking trails.

Soon, The Reserve will offer a unique opportunity for homebuyers to call Vintage Oaks home in a whole new way. The Reserve will offer the best of Vintage Oaks living while allowing homebuyers to choose from a variety of home plans from two of the nation’s most respected builders, David Weekley Homes and Ryland Homes.
