February 9, 2024 4:08 pm Published by

Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of home buying — where the thrill of finding your dream home is only rivaled by the maze of decisions that come with it! There is no denying the rollercoaster of excitement, nerves, and pure joy that comes with the journey. Said journey requires careful consideration of various factors, such as location, education, and lifestyle, to ensure a perfect fit for both present needs and future aspirations. 

Location and Accessibility

The location of your home should make your daily life easier by placing you close to your priorities—schools, shopping, dining, entertainment, your career, and any other necessities for you and your family. Look no further than The Colony to find the perfect location that checks each box! Here, you’ll enjoy seamless connectivity to the primary highways leading to Austin, an onsite elementary school, several local spots for shopping and eating, and more.

Schools and Education

Proximity to quality education isn’t just about convenience — it’s an investment in the future for your child’s growth. We kept this in mind when we designed our master-planned community, which is home to Colony Oaks Elementary School! Students in The Colony will receive a quality education in Bastrop ISD’s highly acclaimed education system that aims to prepare every student for life’s opportunities and challenges to ensure they’re ready to take on the future and positively contribute to their families, communities, and work. Other local educational options include Compass Rose Public Schools, a free public charter for pre-K through 12th graders, Bastrop Montessori School for kids up to elementary age, and Little Sheep Learning Center Christian preschool.

Lifestyle and Amenities

Considering lifestyle when selecting the location of your home is paramount, as it directly impacts your daily routines, recreational activities, social interactions, and overall well-being. A location that aligns with your lifestyle preferences ensures a harmonious balance between work, leisure, and personal pursuits, creating an enriching living experience tailored to your unique needs and interests.

You don’t need to be in the city to have endless lifestyle options and amenities that empower your daily life. The Colony offers daily recreation choices, inside and out, to maintain and elevate your lifestyle. Our master-planned community features resident-exclusive parks, trails, a disc golf course, an amenity center with fitness equipment, exercise classes, a pool, a clubhouse, and room for get-togethers. There are also incredible views of the river at The Overlook and a Greenbelt dog park. We even have a dedicated event coordinator to bring you exciting community activities like cookouts and enrichment classes.
