Mueller Section 9
The plat map recorded with the City of Austin shows 302 lots on 37 acres, so it’s going to be full steam ahead at Mueller in 2016.
David Weekley Homes are now selling their new homes in Section 9 – detached homes are available now in 2016 starting in the $500s for a yard home on a 37′ lot. Call Scott at 512 215 4785 if you want to learn more – we’ll update our site soon.
Mueller Section 7
The new homes of Mueller’s latest section 7 are all but complete in 2016. This is the only time I can remember when practically all types of homes including the new ones – the Town Green Row Homes – have been available for purchase at the same time. Get in touch if you want to discuss how we can assist you in your home purchase – remember that we work for free for you as a buyer, and we are happy to talk you through the options you have in both new and resale homes.
Where are the Section 7 homes?
It’s confusing trying to patch together all the different information on the various sites, so we’ve tried to summarize it here. There are six builders and each has a different approach to selling new homes – some release a few per month to keep up with their construction capacity, while others make them available in tranches. See our video below for a quick tour.

Market Rate Homes
The first homes are market rate homes – these are available in prices starting at around $380,000, and go up to the $800,000s, varying from a little under 1,300 sqft to a little over 3,000 sqft. There are no income or ownership restrictions on these, though the builders try to verify that you plan to owner occupy any new home they sell.
Yard Homes – Detached
These are the detached homes which often feature a compact yard or outdoor area – houses by any other name. They come on lots that are either 37′ or 45′ wide, and are 1,900 to 2,874 square feet.
David Weekley Homes are building yard homes in Section 7C2 with the same floor plans as Section 6 – The Antone, Sawgrass, Woolworth, Rainier and McElroy. These two story homes range from 1,928 – 2,498 sqft with 3-4 bedrooms and 2.5-3 bedrooms, starting in the low $500,000s up to just under $600,000. The Antones are the only yard homes with a master bedroom on the lower floor and start at around $535,000.
We have an up-to-date list of new yard homes in Mueller in 2016.
Garden Homes – Detached
These are detached homes which face a common shared area which is maintained by the HOA. They are different from the yard homes in that they are denser – built closer together on narrower lots.
David Weekley Homes are building these and they range from the 1,295 sqft 2-3 bedroom two story Waller to the 1,812 sqft 3 bedroom three story Bergstrom floor plan. You can see examples of them throughout the previous sections of development.
Garden Court Homes – Detached
Then we come to the attached homes which have a confusing array of names.
Row Homes – Attached
The Muskin Company are building more of their 1800 sqft modern two story row homes. They are built in groups of four, and are similar to the ones previous built on Threadgill – they were designed by Michael Hsu, and start at $535,000. They are most easily recognized by their metal roof.
Town Green Row Homes – Attached
Standard Pacific Homes are building town green row homes from 2,126-2,201 sqft. They feature 2 master bedroom suites, a total of 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a covered roof deck on the top floor and start at $499,000. With lots of 22.5′ x 55′, they are spread over three stories (These are in Section 6)

More information about Section 6 as new homes are built at Mueller:

These are 35′ wide lots – in the past Stan Pac has built on 45′ wide and David Weekley have built on 35′, 55′ and the zero lot line Garden Court Homes
- 62 Row Houses [sold] from Streetman. Streetman built their icon series / flex homes on Berkman, and David Weekley have built the bulk of the Row Homes in the neighborhood so far.

There were five prior phases of development up to 2011, and the 2012/2013 homes represent Section 6. Possible Section 7 areas might be around the Tower District, which may start development on the opposite side of Berkman, the Town Center area as it grows, and towards the Market District. All of this is under wraps right now – this is just my opinion as to where development is moving next in 2013 and beyond.
As a buyer’s agent, I specialize in representing buyers of new homes at Mueller, and the best thing about that is that it doesn’t cost any more to hire the expert – in fact it doesn’t cost you anything at all. If you are considering buying a new home, please get in touch early on in the process and I will make sure that you can be represented – I live a few minutes walk from all the model homes, so don’t hesitate to call my cell 512 215 4785 if you’re in the area. Alternatively, just mention that you’re working with Scott Brodrick at Sherlock Homes Austin when you first talk to the builder representatives, and we can take it from there. I have worked on many home purchases with each of the named builders above, and can bring my experience to make your experience easier.
The development started with a pioneer phase – governed largely by a lottery system. The second phase followed hot on the heels, and then the third phase. Section four and section five followed this, and the latest swathe of new construction is section six. Details of section seven have not been released as yet.
