Meet Orchard Ridge’s First Residents
Monday November 13th, 2017
Orchard Ridge is excited to welcome the Postler family to the community! A family of four with two young children, the Postlers were looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to a quiet, peaceful setting, and Orchard Ridge seemed like the perfect fit. “My favorite thing would be the overall beauty of the neighborhood,” said Lauren Postler. “Driving down the main road into the neighborhood you get to see the beautiful Hill Country views and it really just makes you feel like you’re so far away.”
The Postler family is originally from Austin, but chose to make Liberty Hill their new home because of access to the A-rated Leander ISD and quiet neighborhoods. When they toured Orchard Ridge’s model homes, they were looking for plenty of room for the kids, the dog and entertaining. “We love having guests and this house has an amazing open concept, perfect for family gatherings and parties,” said Lauren.
But it wasn’t just the home that the Postler family fell in love with. “We absolutely loved the concept of a ‘farmhouse style’ community with the gardening plots and lush landscaping,” said Lauren. They’re also thrilled about Orchard Ridge’s full-time Lifestyle Director, who plans a year-round calendar of events and activities for residents to get to know one another. “I’m genuinely excited to meet neighbors and look forward to making new friends, and even more excited for my children to meet other kiddos,” said Lauren.
The Postler family is already taking advantage of Orchard Ridge’s newly-completed amenities. “For me, personally, I am most excited about the gym,” said Lauren. “I actually quit my lifetime gym membership because it’s no longer necessary,” she adds. The family recently planted pumpkin seeds in their garden plot and their kids, ages three and 17 months, are excited to see their very own pumpkins grow. They also love spending their afternoons at the resort-style pool and splash pad. “The resort-style pool makes you feel like you’re on a vacation,” said Lauren.
Located north of Austin, Orchard Ridge offers the experience of small-town, Hill Country living with the convenience of the city just minutes away. Nearly two miles of trails, orchards of fruit and nut trees, Community Gardens and neighborhood parks provide peaceful spaces to enjoy the outdoors. At the Orchard Park Activity Center, residents can take a dip in the resort-style pool, keep the kids cool at the splash pad, work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art Fitness Center or even host a birthday party or neighborhood barbecue at the outdoor pavilion. At Orchard Ridge, every day holds the opportunity to discover something new.
Come see what made the Postler family choose Orchard Ridge as their new home. Models are open Monday through Thursday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm, and Friday and Sunday from noon to 6pm. Make sure to join our Founders Club to always stay up-to-date on Orchard Ridge news.
