Featured Community: The Colony

Posted by Sharon Rosshirt on Friday, September 1st, 2017 at 4:52pm.

For those who desire the serenity of living outside the city or having the convenience of a lock-and-leave lifestyle, Sitterle Home Builders in The Colony Bastrop offers two appealing options.

Parklands at the Colony boasts easy-to-maintain garden homes ranging from 1843 to 2493 square feet situated on mostly wooded lots that all back up to the greenbelt. These homes, attractive to those who appreciate fine living with little to no maintenance, incorporate architectural styles as Texas Bungalow, Mission, Tudor and Hill Country Contemporary. One unique feature of  Parklands, a gated community within The Colony, is the convenience of total lawn management for the $150 monthly fee. Garden homes start at $339,000.

For the busy professional or those considering the residence as their home base, the garden homes are beautifully finished with 8’ Jeld-Wen interior doors and 5 ¼” base boards with 3 ½” door and window casings. The impressive kitchen includes Poplar cabinets with 42” uppers, raised panels, crown molding, and adjustable shelving and hidden hinges. One’s eye is drawn to the beautiful granite countertops and full tile kitchen backsplashes in a wide array of patterns and styles. Whirlpool stainless steel built-in appliances finish out the kitchen.

These homes, filled with natural light from expansive windows, include custom-like bathrooms with 36” tall poplar cabinets with raised panels, elongated toilets, and granite countertops. Space and organization are found in the master bedroom California closet, a gift from Sitterle.

Sitterle, a “yes” company according to Gene Acosta, Austin Division Sales Professional, caters to the client by offering a design studio with a consultant, affording the client to personalize the home to fit any style. Parklands at the Colony offers eight different floor plans with multiple structural options including additional living, outdoor and entertainment spaces.

Construction of a Sitterle home is as impressive as what meets the eye when viewing the interior. Energy and conservation considerations are primary including insulated windows, moisture and radiant barriers, and digital programmable thermostats. For peace of mind, a security system is installed to all exterior doors and windows along with a motion sensor. Currently, Sitterle has several garden homes near completion and for sale. For those interested in starting construction from the ground up, Acosta says Sitterle offers turn-key services and to allow 8 to 9 months for completion.

Oaklands at The Colony is Sitterle Homes’ single-family neighborhood development offering similar construction features and finishes as found in the garden homes with the exception of the lawn maintenance feature. Oaklands features 80-foot wide home sites, about 25% larger than the average city lot. All these lots back up to the greenbelt. In this series, eight different floor plans are offered ranging from 2,065 to 2,902 square feet with a starting price of $320,000.

 Residents of both neighborhoods are required to pay the annual Colony HOA fee of $1085 which provides amenities including Jr. Olympic pool, fitness center, clubhouse, walking and running trails, fishing pond, tennis courts, basketball court soccer and ball fields, and playgrounds.

The Colony is located just 16 miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport and Parklands at The Colony is just off of Sam Houston Street in The Colony.
