Buyers looking for a small “ranchette” feel but wanting to live close to city amenities might find their perfect fit in the large properties in Brushy Creek North.

Homes in Brushy Creek North
Brushy Creek North is popular with buyers who don’t want to live in a master-planned suburban neighborhood and who like the freedom to manage their properties without the strict control of a homeowner’s association. Buyers appreciate that they can get the rural feel but still have MUD-managed utilities, relieving them of the worries of a water well or septic system. Lot sizes are large, at least half an acre to over an acre, and each house is unique. The homes were built over an extended period of time, from the late-1970s through the 1980s. Both one- and two-story homes are available. Many have exteriors of native Austin limestone, and their architecture reflects the Texas ranch style of this former ranch land. Charming front porches and large outdoor covered back patios are the norm in Brushy Creek North. Many of the homes have pools and some have exterior workshops. A number of the properties back up to the adjacent greenbelt/parkland, giving even greater privacy.
Homes in Brushy Creek generally have square footage from the mid-2000s to high 3000s. Most have three to five bedrooms and two to four bathrooms. In the past year, seven properties were offered for sale. Square footage for these ranged from 2401’-3765’, and list prices ranged from the mid-$200s to mid-$400s. These properties sold for $90-$142 per square foot. Properties at the upper end of the range had been renovated and upgraded and tended to be on larger lots or on the greenbelt. It is difficult to find lots this large in a location this close to major employers and city conveniences, so as you’d expect, properties tend to sell quickly and for close to list price or even above list price. The median days on market in the past year in Brushy Creek North was only 12 days.
