Forest Oaks is one of the best selling communities in the region, and we're already well ahead of schedule here
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 28, 2008
Buffington Signature Homes announces the opening of their new model home in Forest Oaks, one of the most popular new communities in the Austin area. Forest Oaks is located near 1431 and 183A in Cedar Park, offering a beautiful, family-friendly community with convenient access to Austin, Round Rock and the Texas Hill Country.
Buffington Signature Homes is a locally-owned and operated homebuilder in Austin, TX, combining innovative designs and floor plans with skilled craftsmanship and an unprecedented commitment to customer satisfaction. Through exacting construction standards and a collection of truly original, distinctive home designs, Buffington has created a unique space within the competitive Austin market.
The Forest Oaks community is quickly emerging as one of the premier locations for new homes in Cedar Park. Located just 16 miles northwest of Austin, Cedar Park enjoys the convenience of proximity with the luxury of living outside the city but still close to everything a family needs in everyday life. Located at the edge of the Hill Country, Forest Oaks features gently rolling hills filled with live oaks, red oaks and plenty of wildflowers. In the midst of this natural setting, the community offers residents incredible amenities and a great selection of homesites.
"Our new model home at Forest Oaks is the perfect example of what makes a Buffington home so special," says Brenda Wendel, Community Sales Manager at Forest Oaks. "Being able to walk into any of our homes, you can experience the openness and livability of the floor plan, and you can begin to understand what a big difference the small details make in your home."
Many of the details that buyers will notice are what the builder calls "Signature Features" - more than 90 high-end fixtures, finishes and special features that are included in every Buffington home. These include a 3rd car garage, island kitchens with granite countertops and custom cabinets, rounded corners, energy efficient appliances, covered patios and fully sodded yards, all included in the price of the home. Customers can also choose from a collection of Signature Options, optional designs and features to further personalize their homes.
The Forest Oaks model home is a Buffington design called "The McKinley," one of their most popular home designs. Available in four different elevations, this 2-story home features 4 bedrooms and a study, 3.5 to 4 full baths, two dining areas and a large family room. Upstairs, a game room overlooks the family room below, offering more space for entertaining or connecting with family. Signature Options in this model include an extended covered patio, upgraded kitchen design and corner tub with whirlpool in the Master Bath.
Buffington Signature Homes has plans to build a total of 41 homes in Forest Oaks, with a variety of homesite locations and sizes to meet any family's needs. And before the first model was completed, the builder was already 30% ahead of schedule in sales. The homesites are a minimum of 80 feet wide, and include cul-de-sac, corner and greenbelt lots. The community boasts a great HOA, which includes two neighborhood pools, a large community center, and a neighborhood park with an entertainment pavilion. The park also offers multiple picnic spots and some of the best greenbelts in the area, with a two-and-a-half mile hike & bike trail. With highly rated Leander schools (LISD) and a low 2.44% tax rate, Forest Oaks is quickly becoming one of the Austin area's premier communities.
"Forest Oaks is one of the best selling communities in the region, and we're already well ahead of schedule here," explains Whittenberger. "We sold a number of new homes here before we ever opened the model, so we're looking forward to even more success now that people can come in and experience the difference of owning a Buffington Signature Home."

1200 Shiloh St.
Cedar Park, TX 78613
