Friedën, a new master-planned community of custom modern farmhouses in Fredericksburg, TX sits on what was once an old peach orchard. Part of the Friedën developers’ plan is to resurrect the old orchard grove as a symbol of the connection between land and community. It was important in developing this 219-acre plot of land not only to honor its history but maintain its spirit. The result is a community on a curvilinear design plan with peaks and valleys like the hill country it’s perched on. The lots are large enough for residents to enjoy the land, but no two lot shapes and elevations are the same. The community is connected by a network of hike and bike trails. Heritage oaks remain throughout the property, looming in all of their glory. And three natural lakes act as a focal point for the community’s amenities.
While one could say the modern farmhouse, or ‘Haus,’ is the focal point to Friedën, its essence really begins with the Hill Country. Fredericksburg itself is a fast growing community in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, that despite its fast growth has retained its local feel. Dining and retail shops that line mainstreet have been there for decades. Art is sold and appreciated, and the town’s vineyards provide the lifeblood of activities for residents and visitors.
Friedën itself has taken great care to maintain the rolling terrain throughout the community. Every elevation is unique, and builders and architects will collaborate so that every home suits the land on which it’s built. For a master-planned community, the lot sizes are ample, especially once you get to the larger ‘Haus’ plans where residents can enjoy essentially a private acre. Of course, Friedën is also a community with acres of active amenities. It’s three natural lakes include a dining pier that sits on the water where residents can enjoy a quiet dinner, or host guests.
Friedën is a model development in maintaining the essential hill country aspects while providing exceptional homes that meet the demands of new residents to the area. It’s a community that is establishing a peace and balance between connectivity of community and privacy, all while embracing and utilizing the incredible land it sits on.
