Highland Homes Adds 300+ Homesites in Central Texas

(AUSTIN, TX) — Highland Homes is expanding its footprint in Central Texas, launching sales in three new communities and acquiring additional homesites in three existing communities for more than 300 new homes in all.

Highland Homes acquired nearly 130 homesites in two New Braunfels communities — 80 homesites in Sunflower Ridge and 46 in Legacy at Lake Dunlap. In Sunflower Ridge, Highland offers 16 home designs ranging from 1,581 to 2,680 square feet and priced from the $390,000s. A new model opened there earlier this year.

Highland opened a model in Legacy at Lake Dunlap late last year. The builder’s 15 designs there are priced from the $360,000s and range from 1,566 to 2,461 square feet.

“These two new communities give us six overall communities in New Braunfels,” said John DePasquale, Vice President of Sales, South Texas. “The small-town charm of New Braunfels is far enough from the urban centers of San Antonio and Austin but still close enough to both, with downtown San Antonio about 30 miles away and Austin only about 45 miles.”

Highland Homes also introduced its Gallery Collection in Meyer Ranch in New Braunfels, opening a model home there in October 2023. The builder offers seven designs in Meyer Ranch, offering 1,663 to 2,724 square feet and pricing from the $420,000s.

Also new for Highland Homes is Broken Oak, located in Georgetown. The builder started with 31 62-foot homesites there and offers 16 floor plans. The designs are priced from the $560,000s and offer 2,263 to 3,438 square feet.

In Santa Rita Ranch in Liberty Hill, Highland Homes has acquired an additional 67 lots in 40-, 60- and 90-foot sections and opened two new model homes. Highland offers 37 floor plans in Santa Rita Ranch with pricing from the $430,000s to more than $1 million.

Finally, Highland Homes added another 91 homesites in La Cima in San Marcus. Highland offers 22 floor plans for 50- and 70-foot properties, with base prices ranging from the $400s to more than $680,000.

“Central Texas is a strong market for residential real estate, with home building in San Antonio showing a marked increase and Austin still a magnet for companies relocating to Texas,” DePasquale said. “Our growth will help address the region’s demand for housing.”

In all, Highland Homes builds in 31 communities across Central Texas. Learn more at
