It’s much more than a community. It’s a lifestyle!

“You feel like you’ve carved out your own piece of paradise.” That’s how residents describe Sweetwater. This master-planned community was actually the working Lazy 9 Ranch into the 1980’s. And we’ve done everything we can to preserve the spectacular vistas. More than half of the community’s acreage has been kept natural and open. Sweetwater has all the amenities you want for your Austin lifestyle, including both a splash pad and a resort style pool that has a waterfall, beach-style entry, and a lap lane. A sport court, athletic fields, events lawn, pavilion, and a playground give you and your family even more outdoor living space to enjoy. The community connects to a 10-mile trail system that winds by creeks, waterfalls and wildflowers. There’s even a stargazing site with a telescope and seating. Sweetwater is an active community with monthly planned events from Bollywood Dancing to visits with Santa. It’s all within the sought-after Lake Travis ISD. All just 22 miles from Austin.

  • Johnna Hold, Happy Homeowner Austin, Texas
    We looked at as many builders in our area as possible and the second we stepped into the M/I Homes model we knew it was a perfect fit for us. The other builders were offering "upgrades" that M/I was offering as items that were already included in the base price. There was a clean and classic, yet modern feel to what was being offered.
  • The Emerson Family, Happy Homeowners Austin, Texas
    When we saw what options & upgrade choices were available, along with the location, we just knew it was the perfect fit for us. Not to mention the overall open floorplan is amazing!
