Harbor anticipates breaking ground with its new luxury home collection this summer on lots owned by the company in the Siena Creek and Summit Rock communities of Horseshoe Bay.

The Horseshoe Bay Resort community is located approximately one hour drive from Austin and less than two hours from San Antonio.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Wurzel Builders and believe our targeted demographic is well-positioned to acquire homes in the current economic cycle. Together we will move forward constructing quality homes specifically designed to fit the needs of Horseshoe Bay’s growing 55+ community,” said Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor Custom Development, Inc.
Harbor announced its expansion into the Austin and Horseshoe Bay markets in early 2021. The Company’s unique business model allows for exceptional growth opportunities by partnering with local builders and developers. The Company currently has 94 developed lots available in the Horseshoe Bay Resort community. Harbor’s most recent finished home sale in Horseshoe Bay occurred in the Siena Creek subdivision on February 28, 2023, and had a closing price of $1,550,000.
“We are excited to introduce our latest home plan collection to our existing inventory with floorplans ranging from 1,800 to 2,800 square feet and starting at $800,000.
