Homebuilder based in The Woodlands launches Austin-area office

Austin Business Journal highlights TIPLER Group

December 18, 2019

Tipler Group, a Houston-area homebuilder known for its work at Bluejack National, is expanding its Texas footprint with the opening of an Austin-area office. 

The Woodlands-based company’s new office will be located at 12600 Hill Country Blvd. in Bee Cave, west of Austin. The 4,500-square-foot office is scheduled to open in early January with an initial staff of about seven employees. 

The Bee Cave office will support a new partnership with the developers behind Boot Ranch, a private master-planned community located near Fredericksburg. Under the agreement with Prosper, Texas-based developer Terra Verde Group and Greenwich, Connecticut-based Wheelock Street Capital, Tipler Group will provide a new home design exclusively for Boot Ranch.

Tipler Group is slated to build 10 cabins in the Metzger Park neighborhood of Boot Ranch. The cabins will be designed to incorporate the area’s rustic surroundings in a neighborhood that is close to prime amenities. 

Each of the Metzger Park cabins will come with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and a two-car garage. In all, the homes will encompass 2,110 square feet of interior living space, as well as a 700-square-foot covered and screened back porch.

The neighborhood where the homes will be built is located along the lighted Putting Park, which is advertised as the largest putting green in Texas. The neighborhood is adjacent to a top-rated golf course, a 34-acre golf practice park, the Ranch Club pools and fitness center and the Clubhouse Village, Tipler Group said. 

Tipler Group CEO Justin Tipler said six of the 10 cabins have already been reserved. The homes start at $1.3 million.

“That’s the authentic affirmation we were hoping for with this partnership. It’s also a very gratifying welcome for our new Austin office presence, which includes a dedicated design team on-site at Boot Ranch,” Tipler said. 

Tipler Group’s new Austin-area office represents the latest example of the company’s growth, Tipler said.

“We’re a very design-led homebuilder,” Tipler said. “So it was exciting to expand our capabilities to Austin to support this new offering, which has not been available at Boot Ranch in the past.”

Tipler Group specializes in building luxury homes in resort-style master-planned communities like Bluejack National, where it is a homebuilding partner. Located in Montgomery northwest of Houston, Bluejack National is the award-winning master-planned community that is home to a golf course designed by pro golfer Tiger Woods.

Locally, Tipler Group has also built homes at Carlton Woods, a community within The Woodlands, and Woodforest, a master-planned community in Montgomery.

At Woodforest’s Pine Island, Tipler Group is building what is believed to be the first luxury battery-powered home in greater Houston

The new battery-powered home is being built as a show home to demonstrate the technology. Customers who hire Tipler Group to build a home will be able to install the system on their own property.
