Driftwood Texas Homes
Formerly known as Liberty Hill, the area now known as Driftwood in northern Hays County, Texas had its earliest settlers arriving in 1850, but the community was actually established around three decades later during the 1880s. Driftwood's history has had its share of ups and downs, alternating from rapid growth to near-ghost town status, then back to a prosperous community once again. Today, numerous Driftwood, Texas homes dot the quiet, open landscape and the community continues to serve as a crossroads of sorts for the Texas Hill Country region.
Driftwood, Texas homes are available in an interesting mix of styles, ranging from simple ranch houses to European-inspired Tuscan mansions. Most of these homes are noticeably set back from the street, emphasizing abundant green lawns and wooded areas on large lots that make the properties blend harmoniously with the environment. The median home price in Driftwood is currently over $500,000--which is well above the Austin Texas Green real estate median home price as more and more home buyers are drawn to this small community.
Current long range development plans for Driftwood include transforming it into a Texas version of Napa Valley, spearheaded by Scott Roberts, who belongs to the family that created one of Driftwood's renowned BBQ places, The Salt Lick. Scott's vision incorporates wide open spaces with hiking and biking trails, boutique hotels, spa resorts, and Driftwood, Texas homes built from indigenous and eco-friendly materials. With several vineyards already existing in Driftwood, like the Driftwood Vineyards and the Mandola Estate Winery, the realization of that plan isn't that far off.
