Repeatedly voted Best Master Planned Community, this 1,600-acre neighborhood located southwest of Austin offers a wide range of options and a diverse collection of floor plans for families of all sizes. With the first homes built in 2003, build out of the 2,000 planned homesites is nearing completion. Belterra has seen many of the area’s top builders contribute to its community and resale homes can be found from Streetman Homes (acquired by Standard Pacific and is now CalAtlantic), Capital Pacific (no longer building in area), David Weekley, Taylor Morrison, Newmark (no longer building in area), and Buffington Homes. Builders that are still actively building in Belterra are Scott Felder, Brookfield Residential (formerly Grand Haven Homes, Trendmaker Homes, Drees Custom Homes, Wilshire Homes, Highland Homes, and Sitterle. It was recently announced that the final 144 lots to finish out the development will be completed by Toll Brothers, with construction to begin in early 2018.
Throughout the community, neighborhoods are strategically designed to link together with parks, playgrounds, creeks, and the many amenities Belterra has to offer, including 400 acres of land left intentionally undeveloped as open space and more than 6 miles of trails. In addition to the original world-class pool, fitness and amenity center complex located in the heart of the community, the recently opened Retreat at San Saba complex features a pavilion, splash pad, fitness facilities and an event lawn.
Children in Belterra attend the top-ranked Dripping Springs school district, with elementary students attending school within the community at Rooster Springs Elementary, walking/biking distance from pretty much everywhere in the neighborhood. Middle schoolers attend Sycamore Springs Middle School, located just a couple miles away on Sawyer Ranch Rd., and high school students attend award-winning Dripping Springs High School.
More commonly found at luxury resorts or on cruise lines, Belterra has its very own on-staff Lifestyle Director who brings the community to life with neighborhood events like Stars & S’mores, live music concerts, food truck family gatherings, and poolside movie watching parties. Holiday parties, Easter Egg hunts, pick up basketball games, and crowded streets of trick-or-treaters on Halloween enable residents to come together often and truly get to know one another.
While the homes in Belterra are nearing completion, Belterra Village, a 93-acre mixed-use development, has recently begun at the entrance of the Belterra community on Hwy. 290 at Nutty Brown Road.

Belterra residents will be able to walk to dinner and a movie or to take the kids for ice cream, adding to the already idyllic lifestyle of this exceptional community.
