Fountainwood Estates is located approximately 6.5 miles west of Interstate 35 in Georgetown Texas.78628. It lies just east of Jim Hogg Park rd and south of Williams drive close to Lake Georgetown. The subdivision was developed from 1992-2000 with most of the homes built by local builders Bobby Fredrickson, Jimmy Jacobs and Don Parker. The lots are all a minimum of 1 acre, and are served by Chisolm Trail water district and Pedernales Electric Co Op. All homes are on septic systems. The lots are mostly treed with a blend of live oaks, cedar elm and juniper (referred to as cedar trees locally).
The homes are predominately one story ranch style with 3/4 masonry exteriors (brick or local white limestone) ranging from 1800 to 2800 sq ft with the average being 2300 sq ft. Most have 2 car garages and are 4 bedroom 2 or 2.5 baths.
Texas Classic Ranch was a popular style of building
Since all the homes are on at least one acre, there is plenty of room to spread out. Deed restrictions are in place, no horses or livestock are allowed but boats and RV's are ok as long as they are shielded from street view.
The Fountainwood Home Owners Association is mandatory but the annual fee is very reasonable since they only maintain the entrance and the small homeowners park and structure.
An interesting structure is the former Fountainwood Observatory that was a hobby of the developer Max Allen. You can see the structure behind the home of his widow Mary Allen at the entrance to Fountainwood. After his death the telescope and equiptment was donated to Southwestern University where the public is invited for regular star gazing nights.
Children in Fountainwood attend the award winning Village Elementary in Georgetown ISD. There is a new connector road (Parmer Lane extension) that affords easy access to NW Austin and the Highway 183 corridor. Homes in Fountainwood have proven to be very popular with prices ranging from the low to upper mid 200's.
