Recently earning the award as the best community in the country for a vibrant indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the Headwaters community in Dripping Springs offers world-class amenities and a beautiful hill country backdrop.

Recognized by the prestigious Gold Nugget Awards, who designates awards to communities throughout the country with exceptional concepts in design, planning and development, Headwaters is described as a perfect blend of resort-like amenities and gorgeous surroundings.

“Overwhelmingly, the judge’s embraced and recognized the innovative approach, of sprinkling the site with open space activities, highlighting residents greater access to the overall community features,” according to Gold Nugget Awards.

Nestled within rolling hills and dramatic topography homeowners enjoy resort-like amenities throughout the community.

The clubhouse, HW Central, is the hub. Built around a coffee bar and lounge with 270-degree views, the center has a world-class fitness center and looks out over the resort-style pool. The innovative pool features a split-level design and a water play scape to cool off on hot summer days.

Relaxing afternoons or family gatherings can be spent in the pavilion, offering cozy seating, televisions, built-in grills and the perfect setting to take in a stunning sunset.

Throughout the 1,000-acre community, there are eight miles of scenic trails, parks and paths to support a vibrant and active lifestyle. Residents enjoy views of Barton Creek and protected hilltops and are continually reminded of the natural beauty that surrounds them.

A trained lifestyle director meticulously plans the activity schedule, designed to keep residents engaged within the community.

“Headwaters has also developed an ideal formula for engaging lifestyle events, bringing the vibrant life from urban environments to its residents,” said a description by Headwaters.

Organized activities include evening movie screenings, afternoon gatherings, and weekend farmers markets, among others.

The builders selected to design and construct the modern farmhouse style-homes include Drees Custom Homes, David Weekley Homes, Dream Finders Homes and Trendmaker Homes. The exceptional craftsmanship will consist of soaring ceilings and abundant windows to let in natural light and take-in the beautiful surroundings.

The homes will range from 1,800 square-feet to an expansive 4,200 square-feet with an offering of well-thought-out plans.

Each home is situated on a serene greenbelt with no backyard neighbors, offering the ultimate in privacy.

Headwaters is located just 20-minutes from downtown Austin and offers easy access to shopping, dining and entertainment venues. Children in the community are zoned to attend schools in the highly acclaimed Dripping Springs ISD.
