Sun City Real Estate: Make Your Home in an Exceptionally Friendly, Active Adult Community
“I am around the happiest people,” says Krystal Wilson, director of communications for Sun City, an active adult community located in quaint Georgetown, on the northern outskirts of Austin. With incredible amenities including three golf courses, a thriving social center, tennis courts, pools, a softball field and more activities than residents have time to plug into their calendars, people living in Sun City have many reasons to be happy.
Homeowners cherish the reassuring comfort of friendly concerned neighbors who they see walking along shaded walkways past lovely waterscapes and ponds. With a strong cooperative spirit, local outings and adventurous groups participate in multiple travel events across the state and the U.S., as well as around the world. These events are coordinated and organized by neighborhood travel and special interest clubs. For example, owners of more than 100 rigs belong to the community RV Club, offering tips and experience to those who wish to see Texas and the continental states.

A Scenic Location
This dynamic community sits about 45 minutes north of downtown Austin and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. For roadster enthusiasts, even traveling to the airport can be a thrill ride, as the posted speed limit on Texas Hwy 130 is 80 mph! Traveling farther south, the toll road speed limit goes to 85; the highest posted in the country. Regardless of the speed, the short road trip to Austin extends an abundance of fine dining, shopping, live entertainment and nearly year-round college sports from The University of Texas.
Residential real estate development in Sun City began in 1995 and continues today. The range of homes includes 900-square-foot villas to luxurious 3,500-square-foot dream homes priced in the mid $500,000s. Many of the properties listed for sale include premium views of the golf courses, green areas and scenic terrains.
With a wide variety of real estate listings for sale and its scenic location situated among the rolling hills, live oaks, lakes and creeks of Georgetown, Sun City is the perfect place to pursue an active lifestyle for those over 55. “The amenities here are well known,” adds Wilson. “The positive and upbeat environment encourages our residents to get plugged in and involved in all there is to offer.”
Delectable Dining, Eclectic Shopping and a Dynamic Social Fabric
Graced with recognition in national publications as a “Top Retirement Spot” and one of “America’s Top 100 Master-Planned Communities,” Sun City celebrates its dynamic social fabric, beautifully pieced together with countless acres of real estate set aside for exceptional amenities in an incredible hill country location.
“We have an awesome community with everything that anyone could want here,” says Barbara Dorrah, a Sun City real estate owner with her husband, Phil. They moved from eastern Tennessee to be closer to their children 9 years ago and couldn’t be happier. “We love it here as well as Georgetown, a charming kind of town with beautiful facilities and an incredible variety of restaurants, shopping and entertainment.”
Raising the Bar for Excellence
As the premiere active adult community in Texas, Sun City raises the bar for excellence in residential real estate development. Described by some as the cleanest residential neighborhood in Texas, the community’s main entrance is immaculate, with an upscale country club appearance. A warm and welcoming community with friendly neighbors, the entire neighborhood is highlighted by well-maintained yards with individual personal touches.
“What makes this community work is the people,” says Dennis Wilson, a Sun City resident who settled here with his wife, Carey, from Seattle in 2010. Wilson is a neighborhood representative who meets with new residents in his area to welcome and introduce them to Sun City’s outstanding amenities and social activities, including the RV club, of which he is a member.
“We breathe a deep ‘ahhh’ when we return home from traveling,” adds Wilson with a smile. “We love coming home!”
