Combining living with the great outdoors

AUSTIN - New Braunfels is a hot spot for living, shopping, water activities and events. And then there’s the historic area, Gruene, a quaint area partially located on the banks of the Guadalupe River.







    Recently, the city had moved up on the charts as one of the fastest growing (small) cities in the U.S.  New residential and commercial areas have sprung up, and on-going construction and renovations are visible.
    Thousands visit New Braunfels every year from other cities and areas of Texas, especially in the summer to enjoy the water sports – Guadalupe and Comal Rivers,  Canyon Lake and Schlitterbahn.  The most frequented is the Guadalupe River for camping, swimming and especially for tubing.
    The banks of the Guadalupe River offer a variety of scenic views – restaurants, camping areas, green spaces, and cliffs.  A new development is underway on one of those cliffs.
    Michael Flume, GC/Developer of Cotton Crossing, has completed Phase I which is a commercial and residential development near historic Gruene.  Phase 2 is currently on-going and encompasses river front property on a segment of the Guadalupe River.  The other property in Phase 2 have the same style residences as Phase 1 – small to larger quaint style homes on small lots.
    On the river front property area of Phase 2 is a new, larger style of home overlooking the Guadalupe River, on the cliff.  Now residents will be watching the tubers for a change!
    Most of these homes are two-story with winding patios and decks, some with pools, overlooking the river, at approximately 70-ft above.
    This is true combined living and enjoying the great outdoors, year ‘round.  Cmw/rd
