Taylor Made

If you are looking for a little day trip getaway that isn’t too far away, you only need to head to Taylor, Texas!

This charming downtown district has everything! Antique malls, quaint decor shops,

from Sweet & Southern Finds

the fantastic 2nd St Farm to Market Deli,

the cutest Curb Side Coffee House,

 

and a heaping helping of gorgeous architecture!

 

Take time to explore, so you won’t miss this peaceful hidden art gallery.


Linger with the family in the kid friendly Texas Beer Company,

or go get some amazing cupcakes from Curb Side Coffee House.

You would never know this is a small town with the big options for browsing. Take the whole day and enjoy a beautiful spring day exploring the hidden gem that is Taylor.

Taylor is located less than 20 miles East of Round Rock on Hwy 79.

The Greenhouse Effect

It is my humble opinion that you can never have too many delicious dining options on the square.

 

 

Last fall, Greenhouse Craft Foods opened their second location on the gorgeous Georgetown town square and it could not be more ideal!

   

 

They offer the same farm to table freshness with some unique menu items to keep things exciting.

(brisket mac n cheese, anyone?)

 

And the décor is a striking mix of rustic and industrial, making it inviting for everyone.

  

And the food is insanely delicious! They offer kid friendly options, as well. And you can dine in, or order ahead and pick up dinner for those lazy nights.

 

Whether wandering the antique stores and boutiques on the square on a Saturday, meeting the girls for brunch, or enjoying a night at the Palace Theater, this is the tastiest place to grab a bite!

Greenhouse Craft Foods Georgetown is located at 708 S. Austin Ave.

That Country Club Life

It’s the little things that make a neighborhood. A bold, striking entrance, friendly neighbors, a feeling of community…


…and it’s very own country club! (Above photos courtesy of Cimarron Hills)

The Cimarron Hills Country Club is a gorgeous destination inside a community that feels like a resort. It’s luxurious, but doesn’t take itself too seriously.  This place has everything! A ladies lounge, a spa, a gym, a pro shop, and the coziest restaurant ever! (Oh yeah, and a pretty impressive Jack Nicklaus golf course.)

Quit and relaxing, with stunning woodwork.
Full bar for after a rough day, or just because it’s a Tuesday.

The food is delicious, and the menu offers a perfect variety of options.

These Buffalo cauliflower bites are better than any wings could hope to be.

Looks messy, taste delicious! Huge portion, too.

And the BLT with truffle fries were perfection.

Because you never say no to truffle fries.

It is a great place to unwind after work, or meeting your neighbors for brunch. And that fireplace blazing chases away the chilly days.

It does get chilly around here, and this is a prime table.

It is open to residents and their guests, though they do offer invitational memberships. Still, you might want to consider a home of your own here. This is an exquisitely laid back luxury community that has everything.

Cimarron Hills is located at 200 Cimarron Hills Trail West, Georgetown, TX, about 15 minutes north of Austin.

Call me if you’d like to learn more about Cimarron Hills and all it has to offer. I’d love to help you find the perfect home.

Simple Elegance

Simply elegant. If you have to narrow perfection into two words, it is simply elegant.

The home at 1319 Shinnecock Hills Drive embodies exactly that. From the inviting entry to the lush, private backyard, and everything in between, you will find yourself carried away in blissful, old world charm. This stunning 3-4 bedroom features so many gorgeous details: textured walls, plantation shutters, surprising little nooks, incredible built in cabinets, and a kitchen that all other kitchens would be jealous of. It has it all!

The master bedroom overlooks a lovely backyard pool, creating your own private oasis…complete with a waterfall!

 

And you will love the spacious bathroom with it’s leaded glass window and an insanely large master closet.

Oh, and there is a coffee bar in the master bedroom. It doesn’t get any better than that!

A large, cozy office can double as a 4th bedroom that’s perfect for guests.

The great room has an incredible wall of built-in cabinets and a show stopping floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace.

The open kitchen features an oversized island and top-of-the-line appliances. And it looks over the inviting, warm great room making this perfect for relaxing family time, and great for entertaining.

 

A media/playroom leads to 2 more bedrooms with a jack-and-jill bathroom so kids, or guests, can enjoy their own quiet space.

And if all this isn’t enough, the side entry garage is fully kitted out with more storage cabinets. That is a ton of storage space in this oversized 3-car garage.

 

This home is custom built by Cockrum, who started in the cabinet business and became an incredible custom home builder. The cabinets that adorn many rooms in this home are a signature creation.

The home is located on a large corner lot with tons of beautiful, mature trees. It also has nearby access to the Berry Creek Country Club featuring tennis, golf, and swimming pool.

With grand, peaceful drive up appeal like this, one look, and you will want to make this beautiful home your own.

Strolling Into Christmas

Every year the Georgetown Square puts on it’s finest, and brings a whole new level to Christmas celebrations.

The Annual Christmas Stroll.

It all started 38 years ago, and has grown to be one of the greatest Christmas gatherings in Texas.

This year it all begins on November 30th at 5 pm. Save the date to come see a holiday parade, visit Bethlehem Village,

enjoy tons of live entertainment,

taste test a huge variety of delicious foods and drinks,

explore Who-ville, and maybe pay a visit to The Grinch…

…and of course, meet the Jolly Ol’ Man himself.

There are events for both kids, and kids at heart, so plan on making a full day of it. You won’t want to miss a thing!

More information on The 38th Annual Christmas Stroll, including a complete list of events, can be found here. 

And if you decide you want to stroll into a brand new home for the holidays, call me! I would love to help you find the perfect place.

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

There is no better way to kick off the holiday season than at an old fashioned town square tree lighting ceremony.

Georgetown, Texas puts on a great show to usher in the Christmas spirit like nowhere else.

Just as you would expect, there is music, hot cocoa, fun things for the kids. Even the shops stay open late in case you want to start on your shopping early.

 

If you catch it early enough, you could score a great table at Gumbo’s to watch the event from the balcony! (Though those spaces go fast!)

People come from all over to experience this impressive show. And it really is quite breathtaking. You will want to put it on your calendar year after year.

The 2018 Georgetown Lighting of the Square is November 23 starting at 5:30pm. Lights go on when it gets dark, but show up early and enjoy the fun!

 

And if you decide you want to enjoy this event every year, but need a house nearby, call me! I would love to help you find your perfect home for the holidays (and all the other days, too)

Finding Finley’s

On a quiet corner in downtown Round Rock, a perfect bar and grill waits patiently to be noticed.

A recent addition to downtown Round Rock, Finley’s already feels settled in. Regulars already exist and they know what I just discovered. This place is amazing!

The food is so delicious, with a full menu ranging from your favorite bar goodies, to incredible tasty treats like these.

Old Fashioned Cheeseburger
Grown up version of a grilled cheese.

And the atmosphere so welcoming and comfortable. The dining area is beautiful…

…but the various outdoor dining and bar spaces are breathtaking!



And dog friendly!

It’s a perfect place to linger over drinks with friends, or pop in on date night.

It’s very cool, very hip, and very much a new favorite neighborhood bar and grill.

Finley’s is located at 410 W Main St, Round Rock, TX

And if you want this to be your neighborhood bar and grill, call me! I’d be happy to help you!
