For nearly 25 years Sterling Custom Homes has been recognized as the elite Austin Home Builder. We have built hundreds of unique custom homes in nearly all of the high-end communities in the Austin / Lakeway areas. The vast majority of our homes are designed around the outdoor living space, which invariably includes a swimming pool.
Custom swimming pools come in a variety of shapes and sizes and incorporate many fun, interesting concepts. From swim-up bars to grottos tucked behind waterfalls to firepits and water features, the possibilities are truly endless.
When designing the home, many people think that the swimming pool design needs to be finalized prior to construction. We prefer, when possible, to simply “save the space” for the pool and get into the details of swimming pool design after the foundation has been poured and the house has been framed up. This allows our clients to get a better feel for the pool/house relationship and enables them to take advantage of the precise view corridors that they wish to showcase.
However, sometime we find that access is limited or impossible based on the lot characteristics and neighboring properties. In these cases we spend much more time up-front on the pool design. We then construct the pool foundation first, prior to the home foundation. In these instances it becomes very important to understand and visualize the pool/house relationship – even before the house construction has begun. Read More→

For those of you still looking for the best lot, we keep very close track of availability in communities such as Spanish Oaks, The Reserve at Lake Travis, Flintrock Falls, Rough Hollow, Lakeway, River Place on Lake Austin, Bellagio Estates, Caslano, Seven Oaks, The Bluffs at Steiner Ranch,Waterford on Lake Travis, Belvedere and many more.

Now that spring has arrived and we’ve been enjoying warm weather and clear skies, it’s time to begin your spring cleaning rituals. This year, instead of just vacuuming and dusting, we at Sterling Custom Homes want to remind you that performing spring home maintenance on your Austin luxury real estate is just as important as removing the dust from your baseboards and curtains. To help you begin the process, we’ve listed the areas of your home that you should address.
Smoke Detectors: Make sure that there is one on each floor of your home, inspect them monthly to see that they’re working and change the batteries as needed.
Light Bulbs: Examine the bulbs in all of your fixtures to see that they are working and are the correct wattage as recommended by the manufacturer. Also, replace high-intensity with fluorescent bulbs that don’t produce as much heat.
Electrical Outlets: Check all outlets for frayed wires, loose-fitting plugs or other fire hazards such as overloaded electrical outlets, fuse boxes and extension cords. Read More→
