Southern Land Company Develops New Luxury Community

This project marks the company’s first Texas Hill Country Community in Dripping Springs, Tx.

DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas (January 31, 2021) — Southern Land Company (SLC), a national real estate developer of award-winning mixed-use developments and master-planned communities, has announced it has closed on its first land acquisition in Dripping Springs, Texas, where the company’s homebuilding group will build a high-end, luxury home community.

The community will be located near Treaty Creek Distilling at the end of Silver Creek Road in a scenic, secluded location. It will include 10 1.5-acre lots and 17 2-acre lots. Nineteen of the lots will back up to Barton Creek and offer expansive bluff, river, and Hill Country views. Homebuyers will enjoy distinct, luxury, single-family homes reflecting SLC’s hallmarks of strict design principles and quality craftsmanship. Additionally, the community will feature a gathering center with river access, carefully working with the beauty of the land and its natural Hill Country trees and open spaces.

“We are eager to get started on what is going to be a collection of beautiful, inviting, high-quality homes,” said Dan Hutts, president of SLC’s Hill Country Region homebuilding group. “Barton Creek provides an exceptional backdrop to our future community. It will be well suited for the discerning homebuyer who seeks a blend of unique design, extreme attention to detail, and a stunning natural setting.”

SLC’s project in Dripping Springs is its first in Texas Hill Country. SLC’s homebuilding group’s expansion into Hays, Burnet, Comal, and Travis Counties was announced in October 2021.

“We are very particular when selecting sites for our projects,” said Brian Sewell, president and COO of Southern Land Company. “The demand for high-end homes in Dripping Springs was only one factor in our decision to build here. The area’s thriving culture, abundant outdoor activity opportunities, excellent school district, and proximity to Austin were critical factors as well. Dripping Springs is energizing and exciting. We look forward to developing a small luxury home community that complements the unique beauty of the site and the greater community.”

SLC will begin the engineering process for the project in January 2022. Infrastructure construction is expected to begin in September 2022. More details about the project will be shared as the project progresses.

SLC’s community development experience relevant to its first Hill Country project includes Westhaven in Franklin, Tennessee, Tucker Hill in McKinney, Texas, and its newest community, Westerly, in Erie, Colorado, coming in early 2022.
