Build Your Waterfront Dream Home

It’s easy to obtain your waterfront lifestyle dreams at The Coves – you can buy your land NOW – with prices at historic lows – and build whenever you’re ready. That means you can get started on a lifelong affair with the beauty of Lake Travis TODAY – and build your home when circumstances are perfect for you and your family!

Even better, you may choose your own builder and architect – you won’t be stuck with a list of “approved” builders, or intrusive restrictions on the design of your home.
