Not that long ago, Sweetwater seemed to be a long way out and isolated. Now when I drive to the neighborhood, I am envious of the recently expanded Hwy 71. Two lanes each direction and a turn lane when you come to the entrance of Sweetwater or other neighborhoods up and down the road. And what beautiful views as you drive out Hwy 71. The neighborhood has some nice views, too, and great amenities and schools. Like many new neighborhoods, it takes a little time for it to become popular, but the time has come for this neighborhood. With all the shopping you can desire just 10 minutes away at the Hill Country Galleria, Sweetwater is no longer isolated. The homes are spacious and well laid out with open floor plans and high ceilings, spacious kitchens and bedrooms, and tastefully decorated. A home I’m selling right now is 5517 Brady Bayou Cv, priced at $438,000 and 2999 sq ft. Builders in the neighborhood include David Weekely, Chesmar, Perry, Coventry, Ashton Woods, M/I, River Oaks and Drees. Prices range from $325K on up to nearly $1M. There are a number of homes to choose from – both new construction and recently built. Overall, this is a great community that will continue to grow in popularity as the population of Austin continues to grow.
