Magnificent Homes with Awesome Views
Homes in Cap Rock at Crystal Falls were built from 2011 through 2012 and feature slightly larger homes than those in previous Crystal Falls developments. Many of the backyards overlook the lovely Crystal Falls Public Golf Course fairways while Hill Country views lend a bucolic countryside charm.
The spacious homes here make the most of bountiful vistas with an abundance of exterior decks and large shaded windows. Floor plans emphasize flowing living spaces that are both efficient and at the same time make already large rooms feel even larger. Exterior elevations are pleasant combinations of earth tone stucco combined with native limestone, while the roofs are seamed metal or Spanish barrel tile shingles. The Crystal Falls Neighborhood Association maintains the high standards of the neighborhood.
