Buyers looking for homes in Driftwood TX will find a lot to love about Rutherford West. This master-planned community offers large acreage lots in the Central Texas Hill Country, surrounded by a gorgeous greenbelt. Commuting is a breeze, since Rutherford West is located just minutes from Austin.

Location is one of the factors that buyers use when looking for a home. Rutherford West has a lot going for it since residents have easy access to a variety of shopping, dining, recreation and entertainment options in the area. For instance, just down the road in Driftwood is where you’ll find probably the most famous BBQ in Central Texas, the Salt Lick. Patrons enjoy down-home Texas dining, with such favorites as brisket, sausage, and ribs, as well as tasty homemade pies and cobbler for dessert.

When you’re looking for clothes and household items, you’ll be treated to a shopping experience like no other at Barton Creek Square. You can spend all day browsing the more than 180 specialty retailers like The Apple Store, Armani Exchange and Pottery Barn Kids, as well as anchor stores like Dillard’s, Macy’s, JC Penney and Nordstrom. When your feet are tired from all that shopping, you can relax in comfort on plush leather seats and benches located throughout the complex.

Rutherford West residents can find plenty of fun things to do on the weekends, such as heading to nearby Driftwood Vineyards for a wine tour, tasting or picnic. You can easily beat the heat in the summertime by taking a dip in one of the Hill Country’s favorite swimming spots, Hamilton Pool. This popular attraction also features a 45-foot waterfall, hiking trail and beautiful natural grotto.

Most home buyers, especially those with families, also take into account the quality of nearby schools when choosing a community. Rutherford West is located within the Hays ISD. This school district offers dynamic, rigorous instruction with a commitment to serve the unique needs of every child. The Hays ISD also prides itself on the quality of its extracurricular programs, which include an award-winning band, choir, visual and theatre arts, and athletic programs, such as the Hays High School softball team, which took the state title in 2013.
