This summer, trusted builder Del Webb announced its plan to build 10 new communities by the end of 2020. As a pioneer of active adult communities, the Del Webb name has become synonymous with quality. Luckily, residents don’t have to wait until the end of next year to enjoy all the offerings of of a Del Webb community. One of its largest, Sun City Texas, is still one of the top active adult retirement communities in the country, and it continues to grow.
Construction on Sun City Texas started in 1995, and nearly 90 neighborhoods later, there are still sites offering new construction homes. The three home collections offer 10 different floor plans ranging from two to four bedrooms, two to four bathrooms, and one to two car garages. Adjustable features include open kitchens and gathering spaces, first-floor master suites, and covered outdoor areas. The attached two-car garages often leave room for golf carts, which residents can travel on throughout the community. New construction homes are all single-family, but there are a small number of attached townhomes available as resale as well. For residents interested in designing their dream home, Del Webb offers some peace of mind with a 10-year quality guarantee.
Del Webb is not only known for its caliber of homes, but also for its abundance of amenities. The newest of these offerings at Sun City Texas is the Cowan Creek Amenity Center, a two-story fitness complex with multipurpose rooms, a catering kitchen, a golf pro shop, and a resort-style pool. The original Village Center is the central hub of the community, featuring several recreation centers and entertainment complexes.
Outside, residents enjoy three championship golf courses woven throughout the neighborhoods, a fishing lake, and an outdoor amphitheater for live performances. Sun City Texas also offers retirees a way to retreat into nature with 9 miles of connected, wooded walking and biking paths.
The best part is that the affordable HOA feeds fund the care and maintenance of these amenities. Del Webb also goes the extra mile by sending out an annual third party survey to all residents to request feedback and suggestions on the community, and recent additions to Sun City Texas as a result of this survey include a dog park, a softball field, and more pickleball courts.
One of the reasons Sun City Texas continues to grow an attract residents is its location in Central Texas. The weather is hard to beat, with warm summers and mild winters that let residents enjoy outdoor recreation all year while still experiencing some seasonal change. Situated in the vibrant and artistic Georgetown, residents are minutes from the Downtown Historic District and under an hour from the culture and shopping of Austin.
