One of the newest subdivisions in Western Travis County, the rural hill country setting of Rocky Creek is bound to impress even the most jaded of potential homebuyers. Driving west from Austin through the rolling hills on Highway 71, and turning south onto Hamilton Pool Road, you can find Rocky Creek just after Crumley Ranch Road. The stunning beauty of Shield Ranch Nature Conservancy and Hamilton Pool Preserve, easily two of the most beautiful areas in the Texas Hill Country, has definitely rubbed off on their neighbor Rocky Creek. The community is four hundred sixty eight acres large, and over three hundred acres are dedicated as green space. Each neighborhood in Rocky Creek features cul-de-sacs, homesites that are heavily wooded with Live Oaks, Junipers, and Cedars, and can easily boast some of the most spectacular views around. Rocky Creek is being developed by Hillwood Communties, who have brought on builders Highland Homes and Drees Homes to bring a future homeowner’s Hill Country dream to life. Since the development opened for sales at the end of 2010, there are still plenty of lots to choose from for those who would build, and homes that are ready for occupancy as well. Home prices range from the $320s to the $600s.
Rocky Creek residents could just sit around and enjoy the lovely Hill Country views, but there are amenities to be had, such as a resort style pool complex, pavilion, children’s play areas and, plenty of hiking and biking trails. Rocky Creek may feel secluded and miles away from civilization, but it’s actually quite close to the growing communities of Bee Cave, Lakeway, Dripping Springs and Driftwood---home to the world famous barbeque of The Salt Lick. Rocky Creek students would attend the acclaimed Lake Travis Independent School District, specifically Bee Cave Elementary, Lake Travis Middle School, and Lake Travis High School.
