One of the most desirable, master planned neighborhoods within the City of Kyle, TX is Plum Creek. This 2,200 acre mixed-zoned community allows resident to live, work and play all within the neighborhood! Plum Creek subdivision has something to offer everyone, at every stage in life.
Plum Creek was formally known as Mountain City Ranch, and was assembled in the early 1900’s by Richard Van Wyck Negley and his wife Laura Burleson Negley. It was used for grazing goats, cattle, cotton production and recreation. Laura Burleson Negley was the great-granddaughter of General Edward Burleson, the second vice president of the Republic of Texas, and the man who helped found the cities of Austin and San Marcos. The rich heritage and progressive role this family has played has been an integral part of making Hays County better for past, present and future generations. Even the streets of Plum Creek are named after figures in our Central Texas history as a nod of respect to the people that built it so many years ago. In 2006, Hays CISD dedicated Laura B. Negley Elementary School to the district and it resides in the heart of Plum Creek. It is the school for all Plum Creek residents plus several surrounding neighborhoods.
Plum Creek has so much to offer; parks, playgrounds, Plum Creek golf course, a dog park, two community pools and a huge, beautiful fishing lake with walking/hiking trails. There are neighborhood-wide events throughout the year as well, from Hootenany on the Hill, to Front Porch Days, to the 4th of July Popsicle Run and parade! The homes for sale in Plum Creek seem to create an ambiance like a movie from the 1950’s: the manicured lawns, white picket fences, tree lined streets, and kids outside playing until the sun goes down. The schools are also top notch; Negley Elementary, Barton Middle and Hays High.
Let’s talk about the new home builders that reside in Plum Creek: Bigelow Homes, Centerra Homes and Avi Homes.
Centerra’s newest offering is called The Peninsula and is nestled in between the 4th and 6th hole of the Plum Creek Golf Course. The living is green and natural and every home is within 500 feet of a greenbelt of trail that connects to the larger trail around the lakes. The community is gated and will have 172 homes once completed. There are three different home site sizes to choose from with energy efficient products to reduce your eco-footprint.
Bigelow Homes offers three unique settings within the neighborhood; The Parks, Live Oak Park and the just released, Promontory. The Promontory is on a bluff of land overlooking Hole 4 on the golf course. The Parks is filled with live oaks, and instead of facing the public streets, all homes face inward with views of the beautifully landscaped park space, where neighbors can congregate and children play. There are nearby Pickle Ball and Bocce Ball courts and the entire area is adjacent to Hole 7 of the golf course. Live Oak Park faces a heavily wooded private park with shady park benches and 100 year old trees.
As you can see, houses for sale in Plum Creek are more than just a “neighborhood”; it is truly a community of its own, where you never have to go far for entertainment, nature and friendly neighborhood activities.
