A Peaceful yet Engaging Place to Live, Golf and Stay Active
Nestled in the Texas Hill Country, Teravista is a master-planned community located in the rolling hills of North Austin between the small towns of Round Rock and Georgetown. With downtown Austin just 20 minutes away, Teravista is perfectly situated for those who prefer to bask in the Texas Hill Country without missing any of the big city excitement.
Blending a sense of prestige with a well-educated, open-minded and active community, Teravista is a popular neighborhood for people in search of a peaceful yet engaging place to live. Originally developed in 2002, and still active with new construction, homes in the area range from affordable 1,400-square foot floor plans to larger, luxury homes with more than 5,000 square feet of living space and prices in the $600,000s.
Known as a golf community, the National Golf Course Owners Association recently recognized the Teravista Golf Club for its outstanding beauty and accessibility. Gorgeously manicured greens, rolling hills and towering oak trees, as well as a cascading waterfall compliment this serene 18-hole Clifton-Ezell-Clifton design.
But Teravista provides much more than golf. The Teravista Community Association brings in yoga instructors, screens movies and keeps residents up to date on the countless neighborhood events as well as what’s going on in nearby Georgetown and Round Rock. Members of Teravista’s exclusive Resident’s Club also enjoy the 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center, a junior Olympic-size pool, splash pad, lighted tennis courts, basketball and sand volleyball courts and greenbelts, as well as miles of hike-and-bike trails.
Highly Regarded Schools and Awesome Shopping
As part of the Round Rock Independent School District, parents often walk with their children to school in the morning and back home from Teravista Elementary. Hopewell Middle School and Stony Point High School are also conveniently located nearby. Older students attend The Round Rock Higher Education Center, which combines resources from Austin Community College, Texas State University and Temple College to offer degree plans in a variety of disciplines.
In addition to great schools, Teravisita is conveniently located near a variety of popular spots for shopping and dining. Located to the immediate west, the Round Rock Outlet Mall features 125 high-end retailers and for a quick getaway, residents often head to Georgetown for its vibrant town square, restaurants, boutiques and farmer’s market.
State-of-the-Art Healthcare and Community Amenities
The Teravista health clinic is located on the neighborhood’s west end and is open exclusively to residents. The modern facility contains 120,000 square feet for specialists and primary-care physicians, an Ambulatory Surgery Center, Diagnostic Imaging Center and Oncology Center in addition to its emergency care and hospital facility. In addition, the Women’s Center has a separate entrance for OB/GYN, labor and delivery, post-partum care, and a transitional and Level II nursery.
Always interested in providing state-of-the-art services and amenities, Teravista Together is an active community association that listens carefully and works diligently to implement the requests of Teravista homeowners.
“I think a lot of people move here because of the conveniences we provide,” says Vaike O’Grady, marketing director at Newland Communities, the development company that transformed Teravista from a dream into a reality. “We provide healthcare, education and entertainment.”
Living the Good Life of Endless Possibilities
As the sun sets on Teravista and the day’s events wind down, a group of residents jog in the cool evening air, while others finalize their purchases at the Outlet Mall or settle in for dinner with their families. For Teravista residents, the choice to live the good life has already been made, though tomorrow’s possibilities seem endless.
“I feel safer here than I did on a military installation,” laughs Jack Major, a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and a father of two who moved to Teravista two years ago. “This is by far one of Austin’s best kept secrets.”
