Hudson Bend Colony
As the crow flies, Hudson Bend Colony is near to everything on the south shore of Lake Travis---the only Carlos and Charlie’s in the United States, Emerald Point Marina, Mansfield Dam, the acclaimed Hudson’s on the Bend restaurant, not to mention the nearby city of Lakeway and all the amenities located therein. As the car drives, however, The Colony might be considered a bit out of the way, as it’s only serviced by one road coming in or out. Shortly after Mansfield Dam was built in the early 1940s, developers created subdivisions on Hudson Bend, including Hudson Bend Colony Number Two and Hudson Bend Colony Number Two. Located at the very end of Hudson Bend Road, on the far northeast corner of the Hudson Bend peninsula, about ten minutes’ drive from the main drag of Ranch Road 620, The Colony is a relatively small subdivision, where lots start at the $175’s, and go upwards of $1 million, depending, of course, on whether they are lakefront. “Teardowns” ---where a home and lot are purchased and the house is torn down and a new one erected-- are common in this area. A hard bargainer might actually pay less for a fantastic lot occupied by an outdated home in Hudson Bend and building new than in any other place on Lake Travis. Hudson Bend Colony might still be a little out of the way, but it’s still closer to Lakeway than any place else on the south shore, and represents a great opportunity for getting exactly what you want in a lake home.
Hudson Bend Students in Hudson Bend Colony would be serviced by the acclaimed Lake Travis Independent School District, and would attend Lake Travis Elementary, Hudson Bend Middle School or Lake Travis High School.
