Dripping Springs’ Caliterra community to host 2016 Parade of Homes™

Four builders to showcase $1.2 mil+ luxury custom homes


AUSTIN, TX, (Feb. 1, 2016) — The Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin has selected Caliterra, a beautiful 600-acre master-planned community minutes from downtown Dripping Springs, as the next location for its flagship luxury home tour, the Parade of Homes™. This year’s Parade of Homes will take place October 28th through November 13th. The Parade of Homes showcases “The Leading-Edge and Best in Homebuilding” and Caliterra is leading the pack in Dripping Springs – an area prime for major growth over the next few years. Nestled in the picturesque Texas Hill Country, its natural scenic views, rolling topography and access to miles of Onion Creek shoreline make living here a one-of-a-kind opportunity.


The Parade is being held in the gated Wildwood neighborhood of Caliterra, an 18 lot enclave of luxury homes located between two creeks and wooded greenbelts. Set along beautiful Onion Creek, Caliterra residents will enjoy over 250 acres of trails, greenbelts, parks and amenities including  a Treehouse Park, multi-use indoor-outdoor pavilion with band loft, sprawling event lawn, a fishing dock, creekside picnic pavilion and an Adventure Club Cabin. A Welcome Lodge with boutique coffee shop will be the hub of the community and overlook creative play areas including a children’s splash pad designed to incorporate the history of the land and the Dripping Springs ranching heritage. Future phases will include an expansive resort clubhouse, pools and gathering places with spectacular views, a 30-acre nature park, trails and natural play areas.


“The region Southwest of Austin is booming so it is only natural that the HBA would partner with the developers of Caliterra to showcase what they are doing out here,” says HBA President Wes Wigginton. “We are impressed with all of this year’s builders and can’t wait to show off the latest in home construction and design this Fall.”


Four luxury homes built by some of the finest home builders in Central Texas will be fully furnished and on display for thousands of visitors — an opportunity for attendees to marvel at the latest luxury home design, construction, technology, interior decor and landscaping trends. The homes will start at $1.2 million and range from approximately 3,800 to 4,400 sq. ft. The builders selected to participate in the 2016 Parade of Homes™ include Arbogast Custom Homes, Lake Travis Builders, Sommerfeld Construction and Sterling Custom Homes.


“We are excited to host the 2016 Parade of Homes™ at Caliterra,” says Greg Rich with Allegiant Realty Partners, developers of Caliterra. “This community is a true natural paradise just 20 minutes from Austin’s robust economic hub; couple that with the Parade of Homes™ and this is really the next big thing in homebuilding.”


The 2016 Parade of Homes™ is slated for October 28th through November 13th, 2016. Join our mailing list to stay informed on the latest news and updates. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit http://www.ParadeofHomesAustin.com


About the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin

Since 1953, the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin has served as the leading not-for-profit trade organization dedicated to residential construction and remodeling in Central Texas. With approximately 800 members, the HBA works with government, public, business and community organizations in five counties to protect every family’s right to home ownership. The HBA and its members work to ensure that those who protect us, teach our children, and provide essential services can afford to live here. The vast majority of new homes are purchased by middle-class families – the very people at risk of being priced out of our communities by rising taxes and government fees.
