Located in Leander, Texas, Bryson is a 500-acre, master-planned community that will have more than 1,500 residences, including single family and apartment homes, when completed. Started in late 2015, Bryson currently has 160 homes and homesites and more than 100 residents and it continues to grow.
“There are hundreds of more homesites and homes on the way,” says Tommy Tucker, a vice president with Crescent Communities, the developer of Bryson. “As we develop the neighborhoods within Bryson, we are always adding amenities such as the resort-style pool and splash pad that’s currently under construction, as well as trails, open space and neighborhood parks.”
Thoroughly crafted through months of planning by Crescent Communities, Bryson’s look and feel ties back to the history of the land. “Bryson was home to the first settlers of the Leander area in the 1860s and was originally a working ranch and farm,” Tucker says. “Every aspect of the community is connected to Bryson’s rich history and beautiful landscape.”
As more residents begin building their dream homes within the Bryson community, each homeowner has the opportunity to choose the type of home that best fits their style. “Bryson has unique architectural style offerings including Farmhouse, Craftsman,and Traditional Homes,” Tucker says. “The Farmhouse and Craftsman designs, for example, allow our residents to enjoy timeless architectural styles consistent with the history of the land as a working ranch and farm. Additionally, there will be a limited offering of custom homesites in future neighborhoods.”
With homes priced from the mid $200,000s to $500,000s, Bryson attracts residents within a variety of budgets and life stages. “Because of the excellent Leander Independent School District and future planned elementary school at Bryson, families are naturally attracted to Bryson,” Tucker says. “However, we also have a number of active seniors who enjoy being near their families in the area.”
To cater to its vast resident population, from young kids to active seniors, Bryson offers a variety of amenities and attractions within its community. Currently, The Backyard at Bryson, a signature amenity center, is under construction and will include a resort-style pool, open air pavilion with an entertainment galley, a splash pad, playscape, open lawn and fire pit.
“We have a variety of amenities that cater to all, such as Tower Park, home to the Bryson Water Tower, The Overlook Park with sweeping views of the Hill Country, miles of trails and open space,” Tucker says. “Additionally, Bryson is one of the few communities with a Lifestyle Director who plans events at and away from Bryson for our residents, including cooking classes for kids and adults, Easter Egg hunts, wine and craft cocktail tastings, Lake Travis boating and more.”
As Leander continues to grow and expand, Bryson’s close proximity to dozens of shops and restaurants, as well as excellent schools like the $100 million Tom Glenn High School, will continue to make it one of the most sought-after communities in the areas. “Bryson is strategically located off of the 183A tollway, so it is truly ‘close to it all,’” Tucker says. “We are less than two miles from the Red Line commuter train and HEB, and just minutes from incredible shopping and dining opportunities in 1890 Ranch and The Parke mixed-use developments. Because of our location on the tollway, our residents can easily travel to the northwest Austin and Domain employment centers.”
Bryson’s various home styles and thoroughly planned footprint, coupled with its scenic views and sought-after location, makes it a versatile, all-inclusive community. “Bryson is a breathtaking community that has something for everyone,” Tucker says.
