A new, upscale residential enclave called Madrone Canyon will soon debut on 140 acres nestled in a canyon in Bee Cave, Texas.

The community, which will feature a total of 110 high-end, custom homes 5 miles from the Hill Country Galleria and 20 miles west of downtown Austin. The location offers the ideal balance of being close to highly desirable modern conveniences, such as popular shopping and dining experiences, while simultaneously offering residents true respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Aptly named after its namesake canyon, Madrone Canyon’s design puts its exquisite Hill Country views at the forefront. Meticulously designed lots, spanning up to an acre, have been thoughtfully integrated into the landscape to maximize panoramic views of the merging canyons. A meandering eco-trail system, pocket parks, and all other aspects of the design aim to enhance a sense of community and connectivity to nature.

The developer behind the project is Ames Design Build, with a model home now open. Lot prices begin in the high $400s, while the custom homes are expected to range from $3 million to over $5 million. Fifteen premium homesites are available for those desiring to craft their personalized custom homes. Currently, four homes have been sold.

“Our vision for Madrone Canyon was rooted in the belief that a well-designed community has the power to foster genuine connections and elevate the quality of life,” said Grant Ames, President of Ames Design Build.  “From the moment you enter our gates and meander through our thoughtfully planned streets, you'll feel as though time slows down, allowing you to fully appreciate the breathtaking vistas that surround you.”

Architectural styles in Madrone Canyon are characterized by modern farmhouse and contemporary hill country themes, boasting top-tier finishes and exquisite accents that imbue each home with a distinctive, custom feel.

Madrone Canyon welcomes its residents through a grand gated entrance adorned with exquisite landscaping. Whether during the day or illuminated at night, this entrance exudes both elegance and security. A community lookout pavilion perches atop one of the canyon's peaks, offering sweeping vistas of the hill country. Native Texas plants have been lavishly incorporated to seamlessly blend with the lush environment. Additional amenities include picnic areas, Adirondack chairs, and beautifully landscaped gathering spots along the trails. Madrone Canyon will also be a dark-sky community, giving way to breathtaking views of the moon and stars when the sun is down. 

"What sets Madrone Canyon apart is not just the natural beauty that envelopes it, but the careful consideration we've given to every aspect of the development”, says Micah VanDover, a realtor with Kuper Sotheby's International Realty, who represents Ames Design Build. “From the unique Corten steel gates that gracefully rust over time, to the bright, naturally lit interiors of the homes, every detail has been carefully curated to offer residents a one-of-a-kind living experience.”
