Why You’ll Love Living in Manor TX

August 22, 2020 3:32 pm

Demand is high for new homes in Manor TX. Once a well-kept secret, the city has attracted national attention with its blend of small-town feel and access to Austin’s city amenities. In 2018 the city became the 7th fastest-growing suburb in the US. A year later, Manor was named the 20th best small suburb in America.

You may recognize the town from the movie “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.” Parts of the movie were filmed in Manor, most memorably the scenes that show Leonardo DiCaprio’s character climbing the town’s water tower, which still stands as a landmark.

This diverse city is located 12 miles east of Austin along HWY 290. Manor residents can get to downtown Austin in as little as 15 minutes when traffic is light. Major tech employers in the nearby Parmer Corridor include Dell, Samsung, Ebay, Nintendo, GM and many more.

Several of these tech giants have partnered with Manor ISD to bring STEM programs and mentoring alliances into the local schools. Manor New Technology High School focuses on STEM subjects for students interested in math, science, engineering or tech careers.

With so much to offer, Manor still retains plenty of open space and a friendly atmosphere. The downtown Jennie Lane Park is the site of community events, outdoor summer movies and farmers’ markets. The park also offers free WiFi and outdoor exercise equipment along with a gazebo and pavilion. East Metropolitan Park covers 273 acres and has a swimming pool, playground, disc golf course, basketball court, sports fields and stocked ponds with fishing piers.

Buffington Homes is pleased to offer spacious new homes in Manor in the ShadowGlen community. This master planned new home community has superb amenities including a 4-acre water park, a Junior Olympic swimming pool, playscapes and green space. The community is next to ShadowGlen Golf Club. The course has a driving range, practice greens, pro shop, clubhouse and a bar & grill that’s open to the public.

ShadowGlen features energy efficient smart homes on generously sized 75’ lots. Floor plans are 2,500-3,200 square feet with 3-5 bedrooms and 2-3.5 baths.

We have available homes ready now or under construction to be completed in September and December.
